hey dude. you shouldnt have cut it! you can just easily bend them out of the way.

well if u didnt cut it up too bad then i would just try and rejoin the pipes using some rubber hose (like fuel hose) and hose clamps.

otherwise go to a wrecker and grab one (would be a pain in the a** to remove)

do not use fuel line. transmission cooler hose is what you should use.

heater hose for carrying coolent

fuel hose for carrying fuel

transmission cooler hose for trans fluid

power steering return hose for the low pressure side of your power steering system

always use the correct hose for the job at hand

Just a question...

Does fuel hose react to auto fluid or can it not handle the temp. Is that why you said not to use it?

I know of a e-series that has fuel hose for the lines to and from the trans cooler - no problems since install, about 3 months ago
