95 4.0/42RE... Looking for lower trans line/hose

Anyone know where I can get the trans line that connects to the lower outlet on the radiator? Everywhere I looked I can only find the one that connects to the upper outlet.. Mine is leaking at the fitting that connects to the radiator. I DON'T have an aux trans cooler, but I have no problem at all finding the lower hose for that application.. Rock Auto doesn't have what I need either. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

From what i have found they are dealer only. Have you trued taking the connector apart, cleaning it, replace the rubber section of hose which is just clamped on, use some teflon tape, and put it back together?

No haven't tried anything with it yet... Just noticed it leaking yesterday.. I'll check it out this weekend since it's not my DD anyway.. I just don't want to have the little balls fall out of that connector, then I'll be screwed. There's no way to change that connector either, right?

You can buy a new valve from the dealer. I plan to do the same on my 5.9 Not sure on a part # or price yet but no one has them other than the dealer. Sux but it is what it is.

If its leaking and wont stop, replace it before it's to late. Few bucks for a line or $2000 for a transmission when the line blows and you lose all your fluid and cook your tranny before you realize what happened.

I hear ya. My story is my radiator cracked the plastic side so replaced the rad with one from advance, it came with a different rad connector. Replaced the oem connector with new one, now when the hose gets pressure it leaks at the connect. Replaced the grommet twice still leaks HAVE NOT been driving the jeep since it happened.
I'm going to the dealer in next couple of days hopefully my frustration level doesnt go into overdrive. I don't wanna jinx myself but I can see walking in the parts depo with the hose and them telling me they dont service/stock 1995 jeep parts anymore, fingers crossed.

On a side note the hose did have grime all over it running down from the connect. I'm guessing it sealed itself with crud over the last 16 years and now I broke the dam so to speak.

Well put an new plastic quick disconnect and another new rubber grommet and its still leaking. More of a slow trickle than the full on flow it was doing. Would a gasket sealent hold the leak after it dried or would it work itself free, open to suggestions

Why not just cut the quick connect off and replace it with a section of high pressure 3/8 hose? Solve your problem real quick.

Wasn't sure if I could do that. The rubber hose that Advanced Auto sells for aftermarket tranny coolers should work right?

Yes high pressure fuel line. Its the heavier line ith the white strings between the layers of rubber. Just go from the hard line to the nipple on the radiator. HEH i said nipple.

lol easiest way to solve your problem. Double clamp it on each end just for peace of mind. Im not sure how much pressure they run at but it cant hurt.

Yea that's what I ended up doing to the other line & have had no issues.. I'll try it & see what happens. Doesn't one of these lines have a higher pressure, or are they both the same?
