Angry question on trans line

the question that I have is the transmission line is dripping some fluid.

It seems like the clip that holds it in feels and is loose is there a way to change that clip or do I need to change the line to get a clip that is stiffer on the line to the trans.

I noticed that when I was doing the oil and seems like I had to add a quart of trans fluid every two to three weeks.

If I can change the clip on the transmission line it would be great and would any one know what that part number is other than replacing the transmission line as a whole

The clip may or may not be the problem. It holds the end of the line into the connector fitting where an o-ring on the end of the line makes the seal. I don't think the o-ring is sold separately, but you could try removing it and taking it to a place known for a good selection of o-rings (probably not the hardware store) for size comparison. I would suggest one made of "Viton" which withstands petroleum products better. Otherwise the line will need to be replaced. It could also be the connector fitting itself. If you'd like to try replacing the clip here's a link to the Dorman aftermarket clip sold at any auto parts store:

Dorman 800-801 Trans Oil Cooler Line Clip | eBay

Here's the ACDelco part:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Auto-Trans-O...3D141961778924

Just found this kit on eBay which includes the clips and o-rings:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cooler-Line-...RXEpnP&vxp=mtr

If it is truly the clip, my advise, get the AC Delco clip. I have use both on my car and both hold, but Dorman has 2 problems:
- Harder to slid the line back in to lock into place (I had to use a tap on a block of wood with a hammer).
- The plastic cover for where the clip sits won't fit back on (parts of the clip stick out too much).

I found out what it was you know that little gasket inside that nut well that is letting it leak. I got another one. thank you guys for the info and every thing. when I replaced the lines I think I messed up that little o ring inside of it and didn't pay attention to that. because it didn't drip or any thing when I looked at the nut the o ring looked ok but it didn't make a seal on the line. thanks every one

Here's a cool tool to disengage those clips. Beats the heck out of a bent pick.
