ZJ - transmission cooler line, I think
All right people, I need some help tonight.
I think my ZJís transmission cooler line is leaking. Well I donít think, I know it is. Itís a small pin hole in the line and its spraying fluid out at a pretty good rate while running. Not sure when it started doing this. Must have been some where between my buddyís place and mine. I noticed it when I was at a stop light, it turned green and when I stepped on the gas nothing happened until it revíed to about 1,300 and the tranny grabbed first.
I zipped into the nearest gas station and popped the hood and saw what I thought was motor oil at first. When I looked closer I saw it wasnít motor oil, it was transmission fluid. Grabbed a flash night I saw where it was spraying out from and it seems to be the cooler line.
Iím kinda SOL on another vehicle at the moment. The WJs on a road trip in Oregon, and the wifeís YJ has its top end apart. So what are my options at this moment? Can I just JB weld the thing temporarily until the dealer opens on Tuesday? Or will the PSI of the line blow that off? I really donít think a stop leak will fix this. And need to get this fixed now b/c I need my Jeep tomorrow and have no choice.
Ideas are very welcome.
