My girlfriend was jumping my 2nd gen 5.0 Exploder and When I got under to look at it, there was Trans fluid leaking out of the two pipes going to and from the radiator. The leak is coming from the pipes themselves, not the fittings. I was wondering what the quickest way to fix this would be.

Thanks

I'd say some hose and hose clamps.

Might want to sand the rust off and hit it with some Rustoleum.

Sand the rust, but don't put Rustoleum on the part which meets the hose. You don't want paint fragments to come off, and get into the transmission. The rest of the pipes could have this paint on them.
