SOURCE: 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.

Most likely the fuel door latch motor has failed. Pull down the trunk liner panel for that side by turning the knob next to the rear seat fold down 45 degrees. That will allow the panel to be pulled down. the latch is the small black box against the car body. It should have a manual release to get it open. Once open take out the two T25 torx screws and the motor will come out. Pay attention to how the manual release is routed and reassemble in reverse order.
hope this helps

go to any good parts store for cars and buy a can of BARS LEAK brand radiator sealant/stop leak, if the leak isn't to bad that will seal it up.

Weell it sounds like you have the days old problem Pepole dont know how to look after there cars.
The muck you still have in the engine isent doing it any good and so you have to get rid of it all, as its in the engine block and is got to go ,,so drain a little of water out and put in 1/2 a cup of washing up liquid in the radiator and start the engine and let it get hot and take the reves up to 1000 rpm now and then to keep the water going around the system, after about 1/4 hr turn off,,stand for 10 minutes ,,and then remove the cap slowly and then take off the Bottom hose and let all water out also take off Top hose at the engine end and put the house water hose in the top and turn it on till all water comes out clean. Then put hose up into the bottom hose and do the same again ,and the same in top again.Now with a clean engine you can do the same to the new Radiator and wash out all gunk .then check the thermostat and make sure its 100% (any doubt through it out) and take note how it comes out so you can fit a new one the same way,
Now refit both hoses and fill with coolant or antifreeze and TURN on the heater to hot before starting as you also have to get out the air from heater when it was drained and you will trap the air which might cause you code problems..
But now try service light reset
1,,Turn Ignition to Number 1position.
2,,Press and hold "day counter"reset button and turn
ignition to II(second) position,hold down for about 12 seconds.
3,,Afterservice light flashes,release button,there should be 2 beeps confirming reset was successful.
Let me know how you get on .. Ron
