94 Ford Explorer auto transmission problem.

My automatic transmission started pumping the fluid out. I was told that it
was probably the cooling line that broke. How much of a job is it to
replace the cooling line and is it rubber or metal? Thanks for any info.
Fred.

If the cooling line itself is badly damaged, I have found it
damn near impossible to buy a new replacement for older
vehicles. They can be almost impossible to remove from a
salvage vehicle unless the engine is already out in which
case there is a high probability that whoever removed the
engine screwed the hell out of the cooler lines. You need
to determine where the fluid is escaping before you can
determine what needs to be done. You may only need to
tighten a fitting or replace a seal. The lines are low
pressure and can have an oil rated hose inserted for a
section if need be. If the problem is a pin hole in a
straight section, you can cut a very short section out and
replace it with a union in many cases.
