2015 Nissan Versa Plus: unknown parts & CVT Transmission leak

Hi. I'm looking for a part but I don't know what it is called. I have an oil leak, not sure if it's oil or transmission. I have a 2015 Nissan Versa Plus. The oil is leaking from a metal tube under the radiator. The metal tube is connected on either end by a rubber hose. One end of the hose goes to the top of the radiator the other end goes to the engine. There is a second tube with hoses on either end that may also need to be replaced. They look alike but are different lengths and shapes. Any idea what these parts may be called?

Thanks for any information.

Most radiators have two large openings for the coolant connections and two smaller threaded fittings for the transmission cooler lines. In the picture.... that is supposed to be the radiator for your vehicle. The blue arrows are the coolant lines and the red lines are the trans cooler lines.

I'm trying to identify the metal tube under the radiator as shown in the photo. There are 2 of them.

That picture is a google private picture.
Either you need to make it public or download directly to the board.... How-to-insert-pictures.

This is the line that is leaking where it connects to the rubber tube.

This shows the 2 metal tubs I need to replace.

Yes.... the pictures are ok.

Hard to believe those lines are only 5 years old. One looks pretty rusted.
I left you a picture of the radiator.
They look like transmission cooler lines.
Don't those lines go up and connect to the radiator ?
If they don't go to the radiator.... they must go to a different cooler.

I see oil cooler lines and transmission cooler lines.

Thanks. I was just able to find a diagram the same one you found. Looks like I need part number 21634-3HC3A and 21633-3HC3A. Might as well change both of them. Thanks for all your help. Have a great day.

2015 Nissan Versa Plus with a CVT Transmission leak

I have a 2015 Nissan Versa Plus with a CVT auto transmission with about 45k miles.I am unable to get a clear answer by searching the internet and thought I would try here. I found a leak coming from a tube under the radiator. There are actually 2 similar tubes one is longer than the other. They run from the radiation to the engine. The metal tube looks rusted and needs to be replaced. Iíll replace both. After some searching, I found the parts I think I need.

Oil Cooler Tube Product ID: 21634-3HC3A

Oil Cooler Tube Product ID: 21633-3HC3A

My questions are:
1. Are these for engine oil or transmission oil?

2. If they are for the transmission how can I check to see if I need to add oil. Cannot find dipstick?

3. When I replace the tubes will I lose more fluid? Will it come spilling out.

I also cannot find a video on replacement and was wondering if when replacing the lines do need to worry about air in the lines like you would have to with break lines.

Thanks for any information you may have.

Combined threads. Too much usable info in first thread to have them separate.

1) I don't know.
2) see below
3) yes.... when you change the lines.... they will have oil in them.

Is a Nissan Versa Plus the same as Nissan Versa Note ? Look the same mechanical wise.
From owners manual...... (very helpful)
When checking or replacement of CVT fluid is required, we recommend your NISSAN dealer for
servicing.


Possibly some helpful videos.

Sorry about that. I didn't want to cause any confusion combining the threads. I wasn't sure if the versa note was the same engine as the versa. Thanks for the info.
