You don't need to worry about this The transmission lines do attach to the raidator howevre this to cool the tranny . The antifreeze and the oil don't mix its a sealed system. So clean the coolant system and flush the block to their are plugs in the sides of the block 1 on each side thats ware the rust comes from .

How many quarts of transmission fluid will it take to flush and refill my 2008 Pontiac GT G6?


the only way to properly flush an auto transmission is to do it with the engine running
it requires a filling line and a drain line so that fresh oil is put in and drained out
this process flushes out the torque converter
if you just plan to empty the pan a few times then there will be stale oil left in the converter as it never empties on a drain of the pan only
It is far better to find an accredited shop to do the flush
normally it takes about 5 gallons for the flush

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 noticed that my 2000 Buick LeSabre has coolant mixed with what I think is transmission fluid in the coolant resevoir. I checked the radiator and it has green fluid only and I checked the transmission...


If what you say is true, your transmission cooler (normally found in the bottom of the radiator) has sprung a leak. This is a repair that you want to get fixed immediately. Both your cooling system and your transmission are compromised. Get if repaired before more serious damage occurs.

One of yor options is to remove the lines from the cooler, plug the cooler in the radiator (cap it off) and add an external cooler available at your auro parts store. Expect to pay around $100.00 for the new cooler plus connecting lines to the new location.

You will have to flush both the cooling system and transmission when you are done ... better yet ... save the mess in the drive and get a pro to do it for you.

The radiador and transmission fluids are mixed and the van overheated. Why?


The transmission is cooled by the radiator. The transmission cooling lines go into the radiator where Inside the radiator these is a heat exchanger that has sprung a leak. This is where your fluids are mixing. Your radiator is loosing coolant into the transmission ( not a good thing ) . Your transmission fluid is now contaminated and may fail soon unless the problem is fixed quickly,however the damage has already been done. At the very least you will have to replace the radiator, flush the cooling system and flush the transmission and install a new transmission filter.

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.

I have a 2004 Cherokee and there is coolant in the transmission. Any idea how it got there?


No coolant is suppose to be in transmission. How it got there is easy, you radiator has transmission lines running through the bottom of it. Your radiator has an internal leak into those trans lines. You'll probably find oily substance in coolant also.

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.

On a 2004 silverado with a 5.3 I am very slowly losing antifreeze. No visible leak anywhere. What are the probable causes?


(inside the radiator.) trans fluid flows thru a line in to the bottom of the radiator. to keep the trany fluid cool. if that line is corroded inside the rad,coolant will get into your trans, check your trany fluid to see if it has coolant in it. if you do change radiator and flush transmission, note: if it is, the odds are the transmission will not function properly even after you have had it flushed.

Tran.leak in the cooling line though the radiator


If your getting coolant introduced to transmission fluid or vise-versa, you need to change rad & make sure you flush both cooling system & especially transmission thoroughly a.s.a.p. before it takes out the transmission, if damage hasn't already been done.
