The main difference between the two is an intake gasket leak will not normally put extra pressure into the cooling system nor will it cause exhaust gas to be present in the cooling.
A mechanic would check the cooling system for exhaust gas as part of the testing process.

SOURCE: Anti frezze and transmission oil mixed

The cooler for the transmission goes through the side tank in the radiator. It burst and caused a leak and the fluids to mix. Be sure to change the filter in the tranny as well as flush it. For the engine and the hoses, leave the t-stat out and run it with plain water and some dawn dish soap to carry as much of the oily residue out of the cooling system. You will need to do this several times, use about 5-6 oz. of soap when you fill the cooling system up to flush the oily mix out.

SOURCE: drilled hole in intake manifold at upper radiator outlet

Did the bolt break off flush with the top of the hole? or if you remove the cover is some bolt sticking up? if there is try and use vice grips to get ahold if the bolts if it is flush then drill the bolt out and re-tap the hole. Way cheaper and likely less work too...

Consider if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil. Transmission oil or power steering oil would indicate a bad radiator. Engine oil could be a bad radiator also if the radiator includes an engine oil cooler ("extra cooling") but usually indicates an intake or head gasket leaking.

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.

99 suburban leaking from oil cooler fitting on radiator


It sounds like you might have a crack in the plastic tank of the radiator. If the line was leaking, I would think you'd see some oil leaking. Any anti-freeze leaking? When the truck is cooled down, I'd check the anti-freeze and oil level.

What does it mean when transfluid get into the coolant


The transmission has cooler lines that run to and from the radiator. The fluid is cooled, by running thru tubing inside the one side of the radiator tank. The tubing probably has a leak, causing anti-freeze to get into the transmission. This MUST be repaired, due to the fact that the anti-freeze will do some damage to the transmission.
