Hey there is a leak in my transmission cooler lines in a Pontiac Grand am 2000. I do not know what to do. I did a transmission fluid pan drop and changed the filter and fluid. That was on Feb 21 and now on March 3 it has leaked 1.5 qt. Do you think a stop leak bottle would help? Or do you have a better option? Or options?

Is the leak in the actual line or at the fitting into the transmission?

This fitting can not be repaired, you will have to replace the entire pipe assembly.

Nothing can be repaired on this pipe, if that union is leaking there is nothing that can be done, you may be able to pick up a good used pipe from a wreckers yard if cost is a concern, unfortunately this is the way things are these days, all throw away.
