The secondary cooling coils should be soldered into place. Take the radiator to a radiator shop and have it soldered.

    There should be nuts on the ends of the steel lines. The nuts MUST be the same size as the fittings on the rediator.

SOURCE: After driving a few miles

Your first problem sounds like a thermostat that is sticking and only opening late. The second could be a leak in the overflow system or the radiator and piping system itself. That can only be found by inspection under the correct conditions. If the overflow bottle is too full it could also let off a bit of coolant that has expanded.

SOURCE: transmission fluid & radiator fluid

Antifreeze and transmission fluid don't run together any ware, but are both cooled by the transmission. There are coils inside the radiator that the transmission fluid runs through to be cooled. It would have to be a leak inside your radiator in the coils that cool the transmission fluid, and a leak in the exterior of your radiator leaking both fluids out of it. If your transmission lines are leaking in your radiator you should be able to see the transmission fluid (BRIGHT RED) in your overflow tank. Also the puddle under your car should be a red and green mixture kind of going everywhere. If they are to different leaks then you would be looking for a transmission leak and a coolant leak. Also check your oil and make sure that you don't see anything unusual looking about it. If you find that you have transmission fluid in your radiator I would contact whom ever replaced the lines for you, they should have been able to see this was the problem. Good luck hope this helps you narrow it down to the actual problem, if you have more questions reply to this post I will try to assist you further.

Took trans coolent lines loose and can't get them to go back in radiator

Happens to me all too often. Are they metal lines with screw-in brass fittings? They won't line up just right? If so, be careful to not cross-thread them. Sometimes you can loosen the fitting at other end of line to get just enough slack to get it right for screwing in at the radiator. Or it might be easier to loosen the radiator mounts, so you could move the radiator to line up with the cooler lines fittings. Good luck, or if you have something different, post back.

99 cadillac deville engine overheating an loosing coolent couple times a day.Replaced thermostat, water pump ok, cooling fans on at 217deg.,radiator pressure tested an holding pressure.engine still keeps...

Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

Trans fluid leaking from trans coolent line where line meets radiator

I have a 2004 Cherokee and there is coolant in the transmission. Any idea how it got there?

No coolant is suppose to be in transmission. How it got there is easy, you radiator has transmission lines running through the bottom of it. Your radiator has an internal leak into those trans lines. You'll probably find oily substance in coolant also.

Second gear slipping.oil from trans entered cooling system

your transmission cooler lines run go your radiator, to help keep the trans fluid cool.. inside of your radiator cracked, and is allowing trans fluid to go into cooling system, and vice definately need a new radiator, and most likely a trans.. dont drive it.. you can flush the coolant system, and the engine will be fine, you can try flushing the trans if its not bad yet, maybe you can save it.. hope this kinda helps... need a radiator, and possibly trans.

On a 2004 silverado with a 5.3 I am very slowly losing antifreeze. No visible leak anywhere. What are the probable causes?

(inside the radiator.) trans fluid flows thru a line in to the bottom of the radiator. to keep the trany fluid cool. if that line is corroded inside the rad,coolant will get into your trans, check your trany fluid to see if it has coolant in it. if you do change radiator and flush transmission, note: if it is, the odds are the transmission will not function properly even after you have had it flushed.

Why is the transsmition oil and water are mix together

The Transmission oil passes through the radiator to keep it cool , If the pipes inside the radiator are damaged then water can enter into the trans lines causing the problem you are having.
Get the radiator checked and repaired/replaced...
Also get the Trans fluid changed as water can damage the trans internals.
Hope this helps.
