1007 taurus 3.0l trannie line

the trannie line going from the trans to the radiator rusted at one of the hold-down fittings. can i cut it and use a compression fitting or could i get away with a rubber hose clamped at each end, as a temporary fix for a short travel.
thanks
bill

the correct way to fix it would be to replace the line you may be able to temporarily use clamps and a piece of hydrualic hose but this will usually start leaking again in the future.

I agree to stay away from rubber and use metal for the fix... either splice in a new line with compression fittings, flared ends, or a completely new line.
