Transmission hard lines leak

1988 XJ AW4.

I have a leak at the front most fitting on the transmission to the hard line. at the quick disconnect.

is there an oring kit for this. because i pulled it apart once and replaced it with a spare used hard line and that lasted about a month. and now its leaking again.

when i pulled it apart it had 2 orings and a plastic sleeve that fell out. what order does it go?

or is there an easy way to just go with a barbed fitting.

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

The disconnect o-ring set up goes o-ring, spacer, o-ring. You should get new O-rings but keep that spacer. Otherwise, google up "Jeep transmission line connector". You should find the Crown o-ring set AND the plastic clip which will fix your leak for about $8.00 per connector

A similar set-up is used for the fuel lines. The *book* says every time you disconnect the fuel lines you need to replace the O-rings...but I've gotten away with re-using them few times. Possible, but not recommended.

Re: Transmission hard lines leak

So, when you get that kit, you can re-use the plastic clip OR use the new clip. Tear the old plastic clip off the end of the line with some pliers. Slide the new clip on the tube (oriented the same way) until it *clicks* over the shoulder on the tube. Then slide an o-ring on the tube, then the spacer, then the other o-ring. Shine a flashlight into the female connecter of the tranny, make sure there are not any *extra* O-rings or pieces of o-ring inside there. Then take the tube, with the clip, the O-rings and the spacer and shove it into the hole until it clicks. The *ears* should click into the fitting.

What about converting to a barbed fitting? Are the transmission and radiator fittings standard sizes or are adapters needed?
