    Are you sure it is tranny fluid? Could it be oil instead? What engine is this? Reason I ask is it could be equipped with an oil cooler.

The lines for the transmission cooler run to the reservoir on one side of the radiator, correct? You may have gotten a bad radiator and the trans cooler is allowing the fluids to mix.

Radiator leaking transmission fluid


It sound like the transmission cooler inside the radiator tank is leaking into the coolant. You could try to fix it yourself, but without the proper tools the tanks are difficult to R&R. I'd try to take the radiator back to whoever you got it from.

Transmission oil in the radiator


If the radiator has tranny fluid mixed in with the coolant, then you have an internal tranny cooler leak. At the one side of the tranny, in the saddle tank, there is a tube. This tube allows hot tranny fluid to enter the rad and be cooled before returning to the transmission. It should be totally isolated and submerged in the coolant tank. Occasionally they can leak, and the two fluids will mix. You will need a new rad to repair the problem. It would also be recommended to have the tranny fluid and the coolant flushed after wards. Oil of any kind does not mix well with coolant, and could cause future damage to the tranny more so than the engine.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

After driveing 1 mile frome cold start van just revs but wont accelerate


Check in your radiator if you don't have transmission fluid in it. And pull the tranny dip stick to see if you don't have water or foam on it. There is a tranny cooler coil inside the radiator to help keep the tranny oil cool. You may have this leaking into the water, if this is the case and you don't take care of it fast it will ruin the tranny too.
I hope this helps.

Dodge Caravan 1990 coolant leak..


do not put water in your radiator. Use 50% mix of antifreeze and water or you will corrode your engine. Add coolant mix to cold engine. Fill the reservoir and the radiator. Warm up eninge while looking for the source of the leak. If lucky, it will be the lower radiator hose. Easy repair. If it's the engine block, big problem. Let us know what you find.

Radiator vs. transmission


same issue. tranny fluid is cooled via intercooler that runs along bottom of radiator. this developed a crack and because tranny fluid is under more pressure, started dumping tranny fluid into radiator. A couple guys recommended replacing rad, then servicing tranny just in case any coolant leaked backwards.
