The rubber section of an automatic transmission cooler line may develop a fluid leak . In some cases the leaking section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this concern.

    Just noticed some red fluid leaking from the front of my saturn 15 minutes ago. Got online to research what the problem could be and now I will embark on what needs to be repaired exactly.

    Leaks transmission fluid. I have to replace about every 3-5 days. I also.cannot get the eubber gasket on the motor to stay fixed. It has been replaced at least 5 times and it is occurring again. Mechanics and persons fairly familiar w/this issue have replaced it.

    My 2001 Saturn SL2 started intermittently leaving puddles of transmission fluid about the size of dessert plates but my transmission fluid levels never went exceptionally low (always near full). I have yet to repair the problem.
