This will be clear once engine starts but I am trying to avoid spraying oil all over until I figure it out. A bit of a struggle to route the two along side the engine. We here at Auto Parts Warehouse want to make sure you're happy with your car part purchases. Better grade clutches and bands, better converters with improved lock-up clutches and brazed fins stock converters were known for clutch failures, which takes out the entire trans , welded planetary cages, shift kits, and the ability to upgrade a non 4. I'm considering this as I wouldn't have to flare the lines and bend tubing. It took a little bit but I was able to get them to seal after some careful filing. You might make a new one to reach from the trans to the cooler area, with common steel fuel lines available at most parts stores.
Dorman offers pre-bent, direct replacement Transmission Lines that are made from corrosion-resistant materials and provide easy installation. I understand many of the power flush machines try to reverse flow to clean out junk. Later models had the 3-4 shift inhibit solenoid added in 1988. I'm going to replace both. Had to reshape some of the bends temporarily along the way and then restore them after getting the lines into position.
All fit 1998~2001 Explorer 5. The one from Ford is only a few bucks more. Not sure if,at idle return line will be cooler or hotter since it may heat up fluid inside radiator heat exchanger or it may cool it off depending on relative temperatures. Current plan is to replace both of these lines as they are quite rusted. Then I would like to disconnect outflow pipe at radiator heat exchanger and direct flow into drain pan. One of the metal transmission cooling lines going to the radiator is cracked and leaking.
Below is a link to pics I took after I finished. Your could have a bad bellhousing. A bit of a warning for anyone going to flare the factory lines. I was just talking to a friend who grew up in Ohio and he remembers almost never seeing trucks more than 5 or 6 years old around there unless they had seriously rust eaten everything. Drove it last night for a bit and so far so good. Personally I would like to stay with the metal lines if it isn't too much of a pain. One is hot fluid out and one is cooler? We love when auto parts experts come to our site and we love when car parts newbies come to our site.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. That was a different parts guy for me, my guy has been fighting cancer. Because of this the bore that the bushing fits into doesn't need to be in the center of the bellhousing, and in many cases it isn't. These four and five-speed transmissions are used in four cylinder and V-6 applications primarily the Ranger and Explorer. C-5's can be built just as strong as their C-4 counterparts, because they both use the same internal parts gear train, clutches, bands, servos, etc.
When it comes to your Ford Ranger, you want parts and products from only trusted brands. But this truck is my 1 day a week vehicle until plow season rolls around so it sits, and sat without break lines for 2 years before I bought it. I believe the torque convertor has no drain plug. Lmc truck lists them for c6 trans. We have worked hard to design a site that caters to everyones Ford Ranger Oil Cooler Hose needs. I may end up splicing in the old tube end, it is very hard to take out.
We're here to help with whateveve questions or concerns. Even harder when you have to bend 2 side by side. One thing I like; serious off-road guys use a spin-on oil filter in the cooler lines. It was the lower outlet line on the transmission and ran to the top of the radiator. The one from Ford is only a few bucks more. Anyone know the diameter of the metal tubing used in these lines? Problem is I can not find any information on the cooler lines out of transmission.
Jeep 6 cylinder engine use an oil filter adapter bolted to the block. Since 1918, Dorman Products has supplied the automotive aftermarket with high-quality replacement parts, hardware and fasteners. The two short length lines wouldn't bad hard to install. I have had small leakage even though my connections are flared. I twas running almost clean with a little darker stuff mixed in. Currently the hard steel lines kind of float in space as they make their way to the radiator.
You an refill with 3 quarts and finish the pump-out. I searched the forum listings but didn't find a thread with what I was looking for. Also, because you can lock-up the converter whenever you wish, it also helps to keep the transmission cool. Might be worth a shot. The flare prevents the hose from slipping off the tube. I had to hand file the inside of the lines to get them smooth enough to seal after I flared them.
