friend cross threaded cooler line and now it leaks transmission fluid. where do we buy the lines or the screw in part and is it called transmission cooler line where it is connected to the radiator. At least it was caused from taking the radiator out and putting in a new one, (or a second hand one) and then when he screwed the hoses back and they went in crooked then we started loosing tran fluid. Now we can't find the lines or hoses for our 2001 Saturn sl 1.9 ltr. 4 cylinder and I do not know if it is a sohc or dohc and would appreciate anyone helping me to know how to figure that out. My husband had a heart attack and was unable to fix the car himself, and is this very expensive because we are on a fixed and very tight income. We would really appreciate any help that you could email to us to let us know what to do and where to find the parts because we depend totally on this car to get him to doctors that are mostly out of our town. Our email address is email@example.com Thank you for your help!
