    1025R suction line leak

    Changes the hydro oil on my 1025r for the second time today. All went well I thought until I noticed a puddle of oil on the floor about an hour after I was done. Oil is seeping out of the top of the rubber piece connected to the oil auction screen assembly. Tried re-adjusting the stupid clamps but does not seem to want to quit leaking. Any ideas? Or do I need to order new clamps and a new rubber piece that goes between suction screen housing and tube up to pump? Would this be covered under powertrain warranty or am I better off just fixing it myself. I hate the thought of draining all the new oil I just put it in...

    That sucks...since the clamp can be slid up and off the hose, I'd consider trying a stainless worm-style clamp in its place. If it will stop the leak, leave it until your next hydro change.

    Does the hose look like it's in the suction tube straight without the lip of the hose deformed / curled inside? That hose is so damn tight it's hard to imagine it seeping.

    Hose clamp

    When I did the 50 hrs service, I spent more time on that PITA clamp than the entire service. Spreading the clamp wide enough and holding it open while trying to slide it up in tight quarters was annoying. I would slide the clamp up, wiggle the hose up and off, than wipe clean the metal flange from the screen holder. Than I would wipe the inside of the hose and put it back. When I slide the clamp back down, I made sure to rotate it so it was set in the impression/mold marks. I was pretty careful not to nick things up and have plier marks and burrs all,over the clamp to avoid the dealer blaming me if there was a leak. That hose is a very tight fit on that nipple off the transmission filter housing. You could also slide the clamp up, grab the hose and turn it back and forth than reposition the clamp on the hose mold marks. I honestly believe if you fool with it, you will get it to stop leaking. Good luck and
    Let us know how you make out.

    Are you sure its the clamp causing the leak or was the internal suction screen put back incorrectly and crushed, causing the leak to come from somewhere else?

    It was definitely the clamp leaking. It was bubbling out of the top of the hose. I ended up sliding the factory clamp down and installed a USA made heavy worm gear type stainless clamp I found at lowes in the plumbing section. I tightened it up with a socket and it seems to have solved the problem. I will check it again later but I think it's good now. Is there any reason I can't use this type clamp going forward it will make the process much less painful than the factory stubborn clamps.

    IMHO I'd look into what is known as a bolt clamp or t-bolt clamp. Typically these clamps have a smoother ID that's far less likely to chew up the outside of the hose the way worm clamps do.

    Woudn't the cable operated hose clamp pliers work? This is one of the tools where I thanked myself many times for buying.

    I like the look of the tight seal bolt clamps. I think I will order some of those before my next oil change, and change my rubber hose at the same time. It is deformed from the factory clamps, and the bolt clamp looks like it would provide more even pressure... and be simple to take on and off.

    Thank you.

    Those pliers look handy I may have to get a set of those. I still do not like the factory style clamp, especially after seeing the setup fail/leak. I will be switching to a different style clamp on both ends during my next oil change.
