    If you can access the leak area, you can buy a cooler line repair kit at a NAPA parts store, for about $30 bucks and do the job yourself, I have repaired a lot of cooler line leaks in shops this way.
    Best of Luck!

    Thank you . I took my car for this transmission leak to two different places 1st one said it was leaking from transmission fluid cooler & fluid line $ 460 they said i also needed to replace cooler unit Next place a family owned business listed on this website and they said it was just the transmission coolent line and the cost around $ 280 for parts & labor wow how do I know one says one thing anouther has anouther the family owned has done a lot of work for us in the past and i think thay have been honest and done a great job for us and my son.
    Does this price sound fair?
