I am looking for a specific part for my radiator. I don't know what it's called and I've looked all over the internet to see what its called.
Do you
have the same problem?

Transmission cooler connection.

This may be "made onto" the rest of it, inside the radiator.

If your radiator is old (internally has mineral deposit restrictions)/ this line you describe broken or damaged, maybe it's time for a new radiator?

In my searching for you, I found some over $150.00.

To my surprise I found some really reasonable!

Check out my screenshot below from "Rockauto".

It's a new radiator. This part isn't built into the radiator but I think my husband tightened it too hard and it broke the small groove.

Here's the part. He put some kind of sealant on it.

The sealant probably is not a good fix.

With out of the ordinary fittings, I believe I'd take that to a "NAPA" auto parts store. If they do not have it, many times they can build something out of parts they have on hand.
