    did you removed the fitting lately? Try to tight it down a bit (not alot) and see if it stops. is it the fitting on the hose itself?

    ok start by tighting down the fitting alittle more. If it continues to leak then go to auto parts store and buy you a fitting to attach aftermarket tranny coolers, a piece of tranny fliud line, and a couple of band clamps. Replace the whole line and the new adapter should stop the leak.

    If tightening does not work, the flare on the tubing may be cracked. Look it over closely and if that is the case you may need to cut the end off and re-flare it. I believe there is enough slack in the line routing that you might be able to do this one time.
