2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Q&A

2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Question: Trans cooler lines, mine has a pin hole, what's the best way to repair this?

The trans cooler line runs under the radiator to a seperate cooler mounted in front of the radiator. Two rubber lines run down to a connection with the steel lines. The pin hole is just after the connection. I was thinking to entend the length of the rubber hose but, the question is, will it hold under normal operation? -
