I purchased my 94 LeSabre brand new. It has always been garage kept and adult driven. Despite my providing exceptionally good maintenance to this car, my transmission cooler lines failed three different occasions. Yes, I understand that stuff "Made in China" is garbage; however, these replacement tranny cooler lines were and are the only option available - which stinks!
My parents bought our Lesabre used at about 78,000 miles. We've had it for about 2 years now. A few weeks ago we noticed a leak. At first we thought it was oil, but today I hoped under the car only to realize it was the inlet hose for the tranny fluid to cool. The leak is at the . crimp fitting where the hard line meets rubber. Also there's multiple oil leaks. Great!
