I have a 2000 Ford Escort zx2 and I have transmission fluid going into my radiator and my car won't move, how do I fix that?


The transmission cooler has broken inside of your radiator. You will either have to replace the radiator or add a cooler. (I would replace radiator) flush cooling system and I would also do a transmission service just in case the antifreeze leaked back into the transmission while not running. NOTE:Your transmission level would be down do to it pumping into the radiator cooling system. Fill transmission to proper level running and see if it wants to work, before replacing radiator as you could have damaged the transmission by letting it run out of ATF.

What would cause the transmission cooler lines in a 2000 Ford explorer 4.0 OHV to leak inside the radiator??


The cooling coils inside the rad itself are leaking. The rad needs to be replaced and the system flushed before installing the new one.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...


How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

    Removing radiator


    remove the top cover for the radiator, that holds the top in place, the lower part just slips into a rubber bushing, you will need to remove all the hoses and cooling lines for the trans and water inlets and outgoing hose. depending on the size of the radiator, you may have bolts going down the side rails that also hold it in place, once all the hold downs and connections are removed, slide the radiator up and out

    My '94 Ranger (166K miles) leaks transmission fluid but only seems to in hot weather and stop and go traffic. I drove 200 highway miles last weekend in 80 degree weather with no fluid losses. What gives?


    Your transmission is either overfilled or cooler sounds like it is plugged and not letting your fluid cool properly causing it to foam and run out the vent. I would recommend first checking your fluid with the engine running and in park to insure proper levels then if that looks good pulling the transmission lines from the radiator and blowing air through it to clear any trash that may of accumulated. You can even purchase an external cooler to help cool your fluid just be sure that when you install it to make sure you install it after the radiator or the side that your fluid returns back to the tranny and not before the radiator.
