SOURCE: 1998 mustang gt coolant leak
I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.

SOURCE: transmission line leak
Buy the kits from the dealer, lube them with oil and push into the tranny end. Make sure the old orings are not in the tranny. The kit has the orings on the installer already. Each line has oring-spacer-oring.

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.
The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

Get second opinion if you don't trust them 100%. It can occur, through rad which cools both, but for future I would ask about bypassing rad & adding an external cooler large enough to cool transmission properly, then no more problems with mixing again later.
Yes both should be flushed, transmission filter changed & re-filled if this has actually been confirmed. Luckily/hopefully no transmission damage has occurred, and was caught in time.
