replacing hydraulic hose

Has anyone replaced the low side pressure hose on the cooling fan. Have a small pinhole where two hoses were rubbing. Do you drain the system or take hose off and plug openings. How much fluid loss. The reservoir calls for Dextron II my parts store says II is no longer available do u go to III or the newer synthetic. Any and all help will be helpful.

The first thing is to find a place to rebuild the hose. If the fittings are crimp, and most are, you will have to also purchase those. Unable to use old crimp hose connections. Take the old hose off and plug the openings. Should only loose small amount of fluid that was in the line. I would go to Dextron III and probably use this time to service your system. Drain the fluid, replace filter and refill with III.

On my 04 Allure, the bottom of reservoir has 3 lines marked: inlet, outlet, and drain. I have heard some use the drain into a 5 gal bucket, if you have the clearance below. Others use a transfer pump from the reservoir to a bucket (probably much cleaner job). When empty, open top of reservoir, remove filters (may have 3 stacked on top of each other), clean reservoir, install new filters, replace the fluid. When reservoir is empty, I would drain the line to be replaced at the lowest point.
