Transmission fluid is leaking from my car around the transmission cooler pipe near the radiator. I removed the connector and went to purchase another one but the only store open was out of stock. So, I replaced the connector and added more transmission fluid hoping this would get me to the auto parts store in the morning. Can I have tightened the nut on the connector too tight? The transmission fluid was dripping out very rapidly around the connector after I replaced it. (So I kept tightening it until it slowed down but never stopped) Anyway, this morning I cannot get the connector off of the pipe. I loosened it without a problem, took the spring off easily but I cannot get the connector off the end of the pipe? What is wrong? Please help me

CAN YOU SEND A PIC OF THE PART THAT WON'T COME OFF.

SEND ONE POINTING WITH A PENCIL (ETC) AT THE EXACT LOCATION OF WHERE THE LEAK WAS ORIGINATING FROM.

ONE PIC DID NOT SHOW (I'M SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THAT)

GET ME ONE MORE PIC, LOOKING DOWN ON THE TUBE (W/ THE BROKEN FITTING) SO I CAN SEE THE FITTING AND BOTH SIDES OF THE TUBING STICKING OUT OF IT

THE HEX ON THE RADIATOR IS PART OF THE RADIATOR, IT DOES NOT SCREW OUT.

WE'LL GET A BATTLE PLAN TOGETHER AFTER THE NEXT PIC (TRY JUST ONE PIC)
