95 Windstar Leaks

I have never done this before but here it goes.... I have a 1995 Windstar 3.8l w/ 315,000+ Miles. Original Engine, 2nd Trans and Raditor, 4th Water pump. I have been doing most of the repairs myself but this one is killing me. I have a small leak from 2 lines that come from somewhere.. The lines are metal and go past the PS pump and then are rubber... Turn metal again then rubber then metal into an area around the raditor... I think they are oil cooling lines, but I can't find anything that will tell me this for sure. I would just cut them and replace with rubber, but the the connections from rubber to metal are presure crimped in place, not clamped. I have a small puddle (about 3") under the front of the van every morning, but it doesn't leave anything when I drive it to and from shops or outings. I use about 1qt of oil every 3500 miles... but I think this is normal for the miles and age. Can anyone tell me what the lines are, and what I can do to replace them, since I can't seam to find them in any part list... Thanks

Re: 95 Windstar Leaks

The only thing I can think of would be the transmission oil cooler lines. Is the fluid red?

Re: 95 Windstar Leaks

The fluid is not red, it looks like oil, I just talked to the local station and they said the lines are oil cooling lines, and want like $300 for the lines and $180 to replace them. I just found a tran cooling line leak also, right at the cooler ( Loose connection) I can fix that. Does anyone know were to get Oil cooling lines with metal and rubber?
