Default Trans line leaking under radiator

I have a 94 SSEi and the trans line is leaking right under the radiator. I am trying to find out what is involved and maybe a "how to" fix the problem. I can't move the car because it will **** trans fluid everywhere. It looks like the leak is coming from were the line is held in place by the rubber bracket. Any help you guys can give me would be great, thanks

If the line is leaking anywhere but at the ends where it attaches to either the trans or the radiator, replace the line with a new one. Should be about $30 at the dealer.

These lines were an issue and most likely both should be replaced. Overall a fairly easy job with a set of ramps and line wrenches.

1993 was the recall year, not 1994, but you never know. Someone may have taken a line off a 93 at some point and installed it on his car, or he'* just got a typically rare failure for a 94.

Either way, it'* a 10-minute fix.
