Why is there coolant fluid in my transmission?

Auto transmissions cool fluid by running it through radiator, the core cracks and mixes the 2 fluids, have the radiator checked out. a way to test this is to remove the transmission lines and joining it with a small thin pipe, then running the engine. if water comes out of the transmission ports you need a new radiator

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion

your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

2007 Nissan pathfinder radiator coolant mixing with transmission fluid

This is a common problem with the radiators in the Pathfinders and Frontiers, Nissan is aware of this and have extended the warranty to 80k miles for this issue. The ATF fluid is cooled in the lower half of the radiator and when the radiator fails the two fluids mix causing failure to the transmisson if not addressed immeadiately. You should bring your vehicle to Nissan and have it looked at ASAP. If caught soon enough you can flush the tranny and replace the radiator and be okay. if not then you are looking at rebuilding/replacing the transmission. Hope this helps

I blew a top radiator hose.It has transmission fluid mixed in with the radiator fluid. what would cause this?

The transmission fluid cooler has a primary cooler that runs thru the radiator. They are know to sometimes develop cracks in the tubing which releases trans fluid into coolant. Replacing the radiator and flushing the coolant will usually put you back on the road.

Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:
