There may not be any spot to drain transmission fluid at the radiator. (All radiators have the transmission cooler built into the lower half of it.) You may have to let fluid out anywhere along the line that you can find to disassemble. Maybe look at the transmission itself to see if there is a drain plug on the transmission pan (like an oil pan)

SOURCE: 99 dodge ram 4x4 w 360 engine trans has only 1st gear and reverse

Are you saying you put in a new but used tranny and it still dosent go out of first gear? Or are you saying you replaced a tranny line? If its the tranny you replace and first is the only gear you may not have adjusted the shifting linkage correctly. Put the truck in park and loosen the linkage on the tranny and slidr the rod on the tranny back and retigten and try that

It sounds like you have a couple of issues here, so lets start with the transmission one first. What it sounds like is that you have a busted hose, and the good news is that it is not expensive to repair. You will need to get under the vehicle and find the hose or hoses that are leaking and cut a piece of each hose off so that you can take it to the parts store and get the correct hose to replace it or them. I would recommend getting new hose clamps as well to re-attach the hoses. It also seems that you have some type of radiator leak if your vehicle is running hotter than usual. The leak could be a slow one and that could be the reason that it went un-noticed. The reason that the heater is not working even though the cars engine is hot is that the water that is used to cool the engine is scalding hot and that hot water flows through your heater core and that is how heat can be selected and blow hot air out of the vents. If there is not enough water, then there will not be any heat. This is some thing that you will also want to address immediately as if the engine runs hot due to a lack of water/antifreeze then you will run a high risk of damaging or blowing the motor and that would not be good. My advice is that you locate the cooling system leak and fix it ASAP to avoid some costly damage. A lot of cooling system leaks are, the water pump, radiator cap or bad hoses, so make sure that you check them thoroughly. I hope that you have found this information helpful as that is my goal.

SOURCE: Which line pumps fluid to

Two ways to tell....the one that is the hottest is the feed line, cooler is return. Or, disconnect the lines and disable ignition...crank the engine over a few times...the line that spits out fluid is the feed. (sloppy but accurate). Best way to connect an external cooler is in the return line. That way the radiator lowers the temp and the cooler finishes the job.

Blew an oil line while driving. replaced it, added oil. car started right up prob is auto trans would not engage in any gear. no previous problem. does low oil press affect the trans??

Blew an oil cooler line or a transmission cooler line? Low transmission fluid would keep it from moving. Trying to drive it to long with transmission fluid about empty, would burn up the transmission. Oil pressure won't affect the transmission.

How many quarts does a 2000 Hyundai Sonata take to fill the transmission fluid

That would depend on the transmission in the vehicle (they can be different with different models/options) and whether you are doing a "wet" or "dry" fill. A "dry" fill will use more fluid since you have to allow for fluid to fill the torque converter, which does not drain during a regular transmission fluid oil/filter change. The import thing is to not overfill! Always put a bit less in than called for, then run the car, putting transmission thru all the gears. Then recheck level and add as needed. Most vehicles require the transmission fluid check be done with the engine running. Check your owners manual for specifics.

Milky is a sign of water/cooling fluid mixed with the oil. Somewhere in the motor/transaxle you have a leak.

How do you replace the transmission cooler on my 89 oldsmobile cutlass supream

Your trans cooler is located inside one of the radiator tanks and would be expensive to replace.
You can either replace the radiator with new or used or cut the lines and install an external cooler as is used for towing. If the cooler in the radiator is leaking, you need to flush the system to remove as much oil as possible or it will cause hoses to soften and fail. Also wise to change trans fluid as well.
Always use double clamps when running rubber lines for cooler so they don't slide apart under pressure.

I need to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 alero (4 cylinder),however I am unable to locate the dipstick to check the level. Where is it or how many quarts should I add.

Technically there is no dipstick as there was on other vehicles.Your vehicle may have a little cap that screws into the transmission. under that cap is the little dipstick. However some vehicles do not have this cap. Causing you to take the vehicle to a shop where they can flush the fluid using a machine that they hook up to the transmission cooler lines. This machine takes out all the nasty fluid that is left behind by a regular filter or drain and fill. Usually when you change the filter or perform a drain and fill you replace about 4-5 quarts. as this machine can replace up to 16 quarts, depending on the transmission. You cannot get this much out of the transmission by draining it. there is still some left in the passage ways and torque converter. i have used the machine myself on all of my vehicles and they will guaratee that the whole transmission will be cpmpletely filled with brand new clean fluid.
