Thumbs up Will this pass safety check??

My girl bought a cavalier and it has this "fluid cooler" built into the return line which basically just loops the pipe in a high wind area under the car. Well its rusted and leaking at the middle of the loop.



Its just a return line so it doesnt have much if any pressure in the system. What I want to do is simply use a dremel to cut out the loop. Let all the fluid drain out. Clean the pipe as best possible of rust and flake, then clean with degreaser.

I then wanna add a RUBBER loop in its place to complete the system, hose clamp on each end.



The car failed safety for this leak among a few other little things, and we are taking it back to the same place.

Is there any reason this fix would fail??

FYI, replacing the entire line is a big job and impossible to get a handle on in tight spots. I just want to get her through this safety before the weekend.

Appreciate any ideas on making it last. I was thinking of just getting a tight fitting rubber hose and a dab of jb weld on each end to seal against any chance of leak passed the worm clamps....

I wouldn't.

It has the cooler for a reason.

Replace the line.

I cant replace it myself, cant even get my hand in the area, let alone break the rusty nut holding it to the power steering rack.

This is to pass safety then its in her hands. I want to know if it would pass

Auxiliary Universal Transmission Fluid Oil Cooler Plate Mod Retro | eBay

this work well if your worried about cooling....i my self would just run the rubber line....most of the time trans cooling and power steering systems add line to aid in cooling.......cheapest option would be a local pick a part for the cooler....several trucks and large cars have them....hope this helps...
