Question about Cars & Trucks
Problem started with blowing a radiator and the coolant and tranny fluid mixed. I replaced the radiator, hoses, gaskets, etc and flushed the radiator and transmission several times. Gave it a test run and it ran fine. Drove to work Monday and when leaving the parking lot, the transmission started slipping in every automatic gear until the engine started overheating. I took to my local mechanic and he said that he thinks the head gasket is blown and exhaust is leaking into the radiator......but I dont understand why my transmission is slipping.

You probably messed up a rod or caused piston damage your going to need more than a head gasket usauly when you over heat a car you causing the pistonts to expand more then they need to causing scouring and exsisive piston ware by the sound of it and the year your better off replacing the whole motor or completely rebuilding the old one wich will cost more then a use motor! good luck!
