I have 99 ford expedition 5.4 4wd. Few years ago I have an issue with the transmission cooling lines. They were started leaking. I took it to the shop and they told me that the cheapest way to fix it is to put a rubber hose on it. Since than I never have any issue on those leaks. My question is does it fix the problem permanently or it needs to fix it again in the future?

Transmission cooler hose is a reinforced rubber hose, so if you've used the proper hose, there should be no issues in the remaining lifetime of this 17 year old vehicle.

Many vehicles leave the factory with flexible hoses as part of the transmission fluid circuit. As long as you use hose designed for that purpose, and it is not is a position where it will be exposed to sunlight, rocks, or exhaust heat it should be fine.

Rubber in this installation will deteriorate over time. Not only should it be reinforced, it should also be silicone rubber (synthetic rubber). These are not cheap so you may wish to be concerned as time goes by.
