Transmission oil gets into the cooling system by a crack in the cooling coil in the radiator tank.When you say new radiator and it is still leaking oil into the radiator then either the radiator is second hand new or the transmission oil pressure is too high. have a transmission pressure checked before you fit an off the shelf still in the original wrapping new radiator. If the radiator is in good condition and not partially blocked it is possible to replace the tank that has the cooling coil in it. It is essential to properly flush out the engine using the correct detergents ensuring that all the systems are opened.. The next option is an air to air cooler for the transmission which is better than the radiator cooler idea.Costs about the same as a brand new radiator.

I have a 92 prelude and it is over heating. Not over heating in idle. Over heating when I coast in neutral or going up an over pass. I've checked the rad and coolant system seems to be cycling fine. No...


Transmission could be running hot. Most times tranny fluid also runs through the sides of the radiator. Or a transmission cooler somewhere near the radiator and in some cases will make temp gauge rise

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????


The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

1986 Honda Prelude Problem where does the automatic transmission fluid go in a Honda Prelude 1986 automatic car?


There is a dipstick in the transmission down by the radiator. It is yellow in color. You add the fluid thru the dipstick hole. Check the fluid with the engine off.

tire rotation, air filter, breather element,
Inspections:
Timing belt for wear and tear
other belts be it V-belts or Serpentine
radiator fluid (older than 3 years needs a flush and fill)
transmission fluid and filter change. if its a manual transmission then change the gear oil
Battery inspection
Ignition system--- Spark plug gaps,wires,cap and rotor and coil inspection.
Motor Mounts inspection
Other things good for a car of that high of mileage are flushing out the old brake fluid and filling with new....same for power steering.
mostly inspections
Last but not least... put a can of Seafoam* into your gas tank and drive it on the highway for at least 30-45 minutes. congrats on your high mileage honda :-]

Honda prelude a/t transmission


Check transmission fluid, our cars are pretty low and unfortunately automatics transmission sit pretty low so its possible you have a leak below or are just running low on transmission fluid.
