Hose leaking replacement question


I just had my radiator replaced the other day, and now it seems a hose is leaking from what i think is the transmission cooler. My question is, can just the rubber hose part be replaced or is it attached to the solid line?

Slide the clamp up and give it a go. Looks like it was just slid on the nipple and never licked it.

Pair of pliers should do it. Rotate the line by hand once seated. Should be good. If it still leaks there, trim off the end of the hose so it loses it's memory and then reseal.

Top off if necessary.

ill give it a try. Worse case, i just replace the entire tubing. Its only $40. I figure that rubber is 12 years old, so it may be getting dry.

Been married thirty two years, I just move the clamp from time to time. It'll work.

it looks like the hose is cut a little to low. So ill just replace the whole thing. The rubber hose isn't long enough to trim. I could cut the existing hose and add a short section with a barbed fitting. But that seems like more work than just spending $40 on the new part.
