Do transmission cooling line fittings have o-rings????

Do the fittings on the rubber cooling lines have o-rings?? Mine are leaking, and I just wanted to be prepared when I lay down under the car.. I don't think the rubber lines themselves are leaking, but I may be wrong..

They have machined fittings - no o-rings.

Thanks Guys..

Further examination shows that the hoses are leaking where they are crimped..

I plan to cut the crimps off with a dremel, replace the lines with new, and use hose clamps on the existing metal fittings.. Thus eliminating the crimp area..

Of course, if I had a way to re-crimp, that would probably eliminate the leakage.. The hoses look to be in fine shape.. Probably have had a little shrinkage since new...

New hoses are pretty cheap, especially in the aftermarket. Considering the consequences of a failure I'd think purchasing replacements every few years is well worth it.
