Water will wreek havoc to an automatic transmission over time. You really need to get the transmission flushed by a competent shop and have them do a filter change as well. Just draining the fluid will not get rid of all of the water. The transmission hold a portion of the fluid at rest but the torque converter hold some as well. Make sure they do a thourough job.

May polo IS MIXING oil with water in the cooling system but the oil is clean,its does not mix with water.What could be the problem.

The oil that is in the cooling system may be Transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission and the transmission cooler in internal to the radiator. Check your transmission oil for water contamination. If it is contaminated, you will probably have to rebuild the transmission and replace ALL of the transmission lines, and all rubber coolant hoses as the transmission fluid will eat the rubber hoses from the inside.

Water in transmission

There may be a vent pipe on top of the transmission that could have allowed moisture/water to enter. But I doubt it.
If the fluid was milky I would say the cooler in the radiator was leaking. But you said it looked ok when you checked it.
Did you see the evidence of water the shop claimed to be there ? Did they offer a reason for it ?

My car is overheating. i got water in my transmission, and transmission fluid in my water. is it my radiator? can my transmission cooling lines be backwards? my car is not smoking and no water is comming...

Sounds like the transmission cooler tank with in the radiator has gone bad, the transmission lines can go on either way, does not matter, replace radiator and have cooling system flush and have a transmission flush also done.

Will a dirty transmission filter cause leakage from the top of the transmission? Back pressure?

There is several things that will cause the fluid to come out the vent on the transmission. The transmission has been over filled or you may have water to get in the transmission. Look at the fluid and if it's not a deep red then you havepossible water deluteing the fluid.The water would come from the radiator and get inside causing it to over fill. The best thing to do is drain the fluid and change the filter and inspect the transmission. If you find out that water has got into the radiator,then by no means have the radiator transmission cooler checked for a crack or broken connection. Hope this will help you.

Volvo s80 water in transmission

It is not unheard of for the transmission cooler to fail in such a manner that you end up with coolant in your transmission, and transmission fluid in your radiator.

If this just happened recently you can usually just replace the radiator and flush the transmission as you said and be fine.

However water/coolant is extremely harmful to the automatic transmission, it can cause the internal clutches to break down inside it and fail.

If it were my vehicle I would take my chances and get a new radiator installed and flush both the cooling system and the transmission, this will more than likely cure your problem.

Water in standard trans.1992 f-150

The only way I can think of for water to get in a standard transmission is if the rubber boot on top of the transmission has deteriorated and is allowing the water picked-up from the road and swirled around the undercarrage by turbulence to seep into the transmission. If you ever pulled one of this transmission then you know a lot of sand gets deposited on top of them by all the water that swirls around them.
