Why do I have engine oil in the cooling system?

Re you sure it is engine oil? Or is it transmission fluid? Automatic transmission cars usually have a transmission oil cooler in the radiator. These can crack and leak fluid into the cooling system. It will act quite often like engine oil. It will eventually turn blackish in color because the trans fluid will eat away at the rubber hoses in the cooling system, and turn them into jelly.

Why is there coolant fluid in my transmission?

Auto transmissions cool fluid by running it through radiator, the core cracks and mixes the 2 fluids, have the radiator checked out. a way to test this is to remove the transmission lines and joining it with a small thin pipe, then running the engine. if water comes out of the transmission ports you need a new radiator

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion

your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

I have a 92 honda accord ex my transmission fluid is almost a pink color i drained the fluids out because it was over filled . after going 30 miles my car does not want to accelerate now the car doesnt...

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Sounds like you may have drained out to much fluid. You need to make sure that it is full because it will do this if it is not. If you are driving on little fluid, it can mess the transmission up. I would recheck the fluid. Make sure you check it on a level lot.

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.

Newly rebuilt transmission is found to have water in it-the rebuild shop was the last place to add fluid or to have anything to do with it. how do you think the water got in?

Hello you have water inside your transmission. Dont drive it at all it will damage the clutches internally. This is probably the same thing that caused the last transmission to go out. This may sound crazy but there is a transmission cooler built into the radiator,and once the engine gets hot it builds pressure in the radiator causing water to be pushed into the transmission cooler lines. A quick check will be just remove the radiator cap and see if transmission fluid is in the radiator. If you have acess to a radiator pressurer tester, then you can remove the cooler lines and pressurize the system no more than what is on the radiator cap and see if any coolant leaks. If so you will have to replace all hoses and the radiator. The hoses will swell up and deteriorate in no time because of the trans fluid.

Is transmission cooler located inside of radiator on 99 chevy suburban? (OEM) car froze at -3 temp fear we have antifreeze in trany fluid, fluid resivore is to full. also water leaking out under car...

I would not worry about antifreeze in the transmission. The pressure in the tranny cooler will not let any coolant get in. If it was leaking you would have tranny fluid in the radiator. You may have some freeze plugs that have pushed out or a cracked block or some coolant passage above the transmission. Get it pressure checked

My trans fluid is mixing with my radiator fluid, what can i do.

I hate to contradict the prior poster, but I would not see how a blown head gasket could get transmission fluid into the radiator. Motor oil, yes, but transmission fluid, no.

the transmission fluid in your tranny runs out of the transmission and up into the radiator to cool it off.

So if there is transmission fluid in the radiator, I'd look for a leak in the radiator. If it is mixing the two fluids then the leak is probalby internal.

Remember that if the radiator is now 'mixing' water and transmission fluid, there is a possibility that the fluid/water mixture may be going back into the transmission as well
