Water Leak in Metal Tubing

Car Information:
Oldsmobile Silhouette APV
Year: 1998
Engine Size: 3.4 Litre
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
I have a water leak in the metal tubing that runs from the front of the engine to the back and the medal tubing that goes over the engine to the back. I believe they connect to the heaters hoses. Can I block those off? If so. Where? I know I won’t have heat. But I don’t care.

Answer:
The bypass hoses coming off this pipe as well and by passing plugging off a bad place may not be possible. We checked and GM states this pipe is not offered any longer as a normal part number.
There may be a possibility we can make a pipe out of copper and install all necessary by pass ports. If you get it to us we will figure something out.

Transmission problem?

Car Information:
Oldsmobile Silhoutte
Year: 2000
Engine Size: 3.8
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
Vehicle has 92,000 miles.
Sometimes it shifts hard in every gear. I can turn it off for a few minutes, and drive it again and the trans will be smooth, no harshness in the shifting at all.
Could something be plugged??

Answer:
Sounds like the electronic pressure sensor in the transmission is causing to much fluid pressure intermittently. I would be tempted to replace it if the system had no trouble codes stored.
