Transmission Cooler Lines Replacement Service

What is the Transmission Cooler Lines all about?

When you drive your car, the burning fuel generates heat. The harder you work your car, the more your engine consumes fuel and the more heat it generates. The transmission of the car maintains the engine’s revolutions at an optimum range. It also transfers this power to the drive wheels, again generating heat. Excessive heat can damage your engine and transmission.

This is where the transmission cooling lines come in. They circulate a cooling fluid from the cooling systems or radiators of the car to the transmission, and help to cool it. This fluid is a slippery, viscous substance that also works to lubricate the moving parts of the car and reduce friction.

Keep in mind:

  • If the transmission cooling lines are defective and do not circulate coolant efficiently, the heat can damage the transmission and other components. You might have to undertake repairs to replace these expensive parts.
  • The cooling fluid can heat up to a maximum range of 160 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (71 to 93 degrees Celsius). When there isn’t enough cooling fluid circulating in the car’s moving parts, the lines and parts can be damaged.

Our recommendation:

Having a working transmission cooler is essential if you drive in high temperatures or hilly terrains frequently. You need it to work efficiently if you live in a busy urban area where you need to stop and start your car often. Leaking transmission coolant can also lead to overheating. Make sure you book a service from our expert mechanics to check the transmission cooling lines twice a year to ensure there are no leaks. You should also schedule an appointment just before summer begins or if you intend to undertake a long road trip with heavy luggage on board.
