So I Did flush ... I had one of those spring clamps .. I guess they are not reusable .. I got some screw type clamps and I replaced it .. I think i used to much torque because you can see that the hose its super tide ... Should I loose it ? or just leave it ?

Cutting in on the ends of the clamp, or just where the slotted holes are? If just the slotted holes then it's ok, if on the ends then it's too tight.

He's retired now.. But thanks for the offer. Try to get the style of clamp that is a solid band without slotted holes and have a screw/nut that tightens the band. This is the best for this style of application IMO. Also when you fix it, cut the hose just behind where the old clamps where to get rid of the damaged part or it could leak in future...

+1 Took me years to figure out the fuel injection clamps seal the best with the least chance of leaks or hose damage. They are more of a pain than worm drive clamps, but worth the effort. You don't want the trans fluid to pump out from a bad connection/clamp.
