1998 Saturn SL1 Question: transmission fluid cooling line

 

Question

I have a leak at the connection near the bottom of the rad where the transmission fluid cooling line goes. How easy is it to replace this? And is it something you should try at home-- my concern is that the radiator is plastic where it connects. Brrr...

    If the cooling line itself is leaking then that can be replaced. if the fitting on the radiator is leaking then you may need to replace the radiator. You are the only one who can decide if you are able to do the repair. If you attempt to replace the line and you have trouble loosening the connection at the radiator then perhaps you should leave the job to a qualified technician.
