Yes that is a cooler line, is it leaking from the soft or hard part?

About two years ago mine developed a very tiny pinhole leak from rust in one of the trans lines. I had to replace both. It wasn't very difficult, except for removing the fitting at the top of the trans. A "crowfoot" wrench on a 3/8" drive would have made it easier.
