Hey guys I need some help Asap. I have a big leak coming from my transmission coolant line, I know I need to replace that. But the mechanic is also saying I need to replace radiator as well, but it's not leaking from there just coolant line. Do I get new radiator as well??? 95 Cherokee 2WD

We would have to see it to conferm or deny the need. If its the original it is probably due to be changed. Both of my current XJs have started leaking by 150K. Both have had their radiators replaced also. The lines are available at Rock auto or Advance Auto and take about 1 hour to install the pair. Many different radiators with different warranties from $95 on up. If your getting it done be sure to get the system flushed at the same time. How much was the estimate for the complete job. Around 4-500?

No it's not the original I replaced it about a year ago maybe two. The radiator doesn't have any damage to it, it's all coming from that one spot where the line connects. The radiator is on the other side. I got my engine mounts changed as well

Perhaps you take it to another mechanic to give another evaluation.

"it's all coming from that one spot where the line connects."

Just where is that? The bung brazed into the radiator where the tranny line screws into? If so is the bung itself bad by being cracked?

Something isn't making sense unless the mechanic is saying that the bung where the tranny line screws into it is cracked or the area around the bung is 'bad'.....

If the lower line is cracked it can be soldered back on by any radiator or welding shop.

Ok it's on the driver side up in front, and where the trans coolant line conncects to the radiator. Now where the line and the radiator connect that's where the leak is coming from

Do I need to get a new radiator or is it just the trans cooling line
