Leaking (rusted) trans cooler line on a 2000 Taurus SE. Line is leaking under the driver wheel well, can be seen taking off the splash guard. Can I just cut the steel line back to a clean portion, and clamp on a new rubber line from the cut end to the cooler?

YES, you can cut out the bad section and just use hose clamps to hold on some rubber hose. BE SURE to tell the parts store what you are useing it for, you want the right hose. I always double clamp it, 2 clamps on each end, so leave the hose long enough.The main thing you need to watch is that you dont bend the rubber tight OR pinch it.
