asked by on

Whats the name of 2 3/8" hoses that run from engine block to the bottom of radiator? Oil/trans cooler hoses? Thanks

My car has 215000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The two hoses are the transmission oil cooler lines that run from transmission steel lines to the radiator oil cooler connections. They need to be high pressure power steering type hoses to hold transmission pressures.
