Hey. I dont know if this helps but i had a similar problem on my 92 buick lesabre. If it is leaking from your transmission cooling line(supply or return) that run from your tranny to your radiator, it is a cheap fix. Before i sold my buick, i was driving and my tranny started slipping so I checked my fluid and it was very low, when i added fluid, it started pissing out a stream from my cooling supply line, right where the plastic clamp mounted the line to the frame. all in all it was a 15 dollar part from the dealer and a ten minute job. just be sure to use a flare nut wrench so that you dont strip out the flare nuts where the line connects to the tranny, or the cooling loop in the radiator. I havent had the problem in my 95 bonnie yet buy both cars have practically identical parts. except the aluminum intake manifold on my buick is greatly missed the abs ones dont cut it.( same plastic junk on my dad'* 07 grand prix gt...when will gm learn)

From the description of the color of the fluid in the original post, I'd say someone is due for a flush or at least a pan drop.

Many 92/93 H bodies had a recall on both lower trans lines. My car missed the recall before I owned it, and I had an engine fire in the first 6 months I owned the car. I suggest REPLACING both lines entirely with OEM parts. It'll run you about 60 bucks for both. Part numbers are posted in numerous topics here.

ditto willwren. The tranny cooler lines are carrying hot oil under pressure. This will blow out a regular rubber hose in short order. Oil can spray in vicinity of hot exhaust manifold. A new set of cooler hoses for my '95 were $55 at the dealer. A good investment.

I've heard of the recall (another topic) and I tried to get the recall fix done but they had no info on it.

I really want to get this stuff fixed. I'm completely broke for a while.

****ing sucks :(

So we CUT off that part where the crack was and put the rubber hose on and clamped it on. Right now it doesn't leak! Hopefully it holds for 3 1/2 weeks until I get the $$ to get it replaced.
My 92 has had the redneck repair for about 5 years now
