What is a Transmission Fluid Hose?

Being cool doesn’t come naturally for your car’s transmission. Your transmission needs help cooling down, and the fluid hose plays a big role. Here’s how it works: the transmission in your car relies on transmission fluid to act as a coolant. The coolant flows into the transmission, where it absorbs the heat generated by the transmission, which is hard at work. The fluid then travels to the transmission cooler where it is cooled. Once the fluid is cooled down, it returns to the transmission to absorb more heat, and the cycle goes on and on. By doing this, the transmission fluid is able to keep the transmission at a stable temperature, where it won’t dangerously overheat. So, how exactly do you think the transmission fluid travels from the transmission to the cooler? If you guessed through the transmission fluid hose, congratulations. No, you don’t get a prize, it was the obvious answer. The fluid hose is where the transmission fluid travels through. When the hose breaks or fails, the fluid won’t be able to circulate, and your transmission is in for a rocky time.

Symptoms of a failing Transmission Fluid Hose

Leaky car

If there’s a wet spot underneath your car, you’ve got issues. The problem with leaks is that they can symbolize a wide range of issues. Your car has a lot of fluids, and any of them can leak. If your car is leaking transmission fluid, then it may very well be a transmission fluid hose that is busted and leaking. You can usually spot leaking transmission fluid by its reddish hue. There are numerous components in the transmission that may be leaking, but the fluid hose is certainly a likely suspect.

Overheating transmission

So, the transmission fluid is responsible for keeping the transmission from overheating. And when the transmission fluid hose is broken, the fluid can’t do its job. Can you guess what happens next? You guessed it. Your transmission just might overheat if the fluid hose isn’t working, and hopefully it goes without saying that that’s a bad thing. An overheating transmission can damage itself, and cause serious harm to the engine.

Fluid hoses are visibly damaged

Now, it’s unlikely that you’re tinkering around with your transmission on your day off. But if you are, and you spot visible damage on the transmission fluid hose, then it likely needs replacing. Shocker, huh?

Low fluid levels

It may surprise you to learn that when your car is leaking transmission fluid, you will soon find yourself with a low level of transmission fluid. If you’re looking for a new hobby, maybe get in the habit of checking all of your car’s fluids, just in case they’re getting low.

How urgent is a Transmission Fluid Hose replacement?

Look, there are only so many ways I can tell you that a transmission is important. If your transmission fluid hose is busted, you’ll start losing transmission fluid. If you lose transmission fluid, your transmission won’t have the necessary coolant or lubricant. And when that happens, the transmission will get damaged, and the engine will soon follow. This is an urgent repair, so get to it.
