I don't know where your leak is happening but I suspect the transmission fluid attacks rubber and may be leaking from the heater because of softened hoses.
I think the first move I would make is to buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and spend some time researching how the transmission and cooling systems are related. The books are available at auto parts stores (or on line of course) and cost between $17-$30 US.

SOURCE: leaking transmission fluid

This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can

The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

SOURCE: 88 Jeep Cherokee Transmission Fluid Leak

you need to tighten those fittings with a wrench... if they still leak... remove them and wrap them with a couple turns of "teflon tape" the kind they use for plumbing. the clamps you should use are hose clamps of the same type that you use for radiator hoses... you will note these can be tightened with a socket.... you really don't need to over tighten them but fairly snug... transmission fluid has quite alot of pressure.

Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears


you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

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.

The oil in my 2008 1.3 suzuki swift gearbox is milky any ideas


Milky is a sign of water/cooling fluid mixed with the oil. Somewhere in the motor/transaxle you have a leak.

I have heard that the vw autos fitted to these vans have had there problems. Vw say that the ATF never needs changing and that it is sealed unit and cant be serviced.


That's just nonsense. Auto transmission fluid always needs to be changed. I would say, around every 15,000 miles at least, depending on the vehicle. Any car manufacturer which claims their transmission fluid never needs to be changed wants you to purchase a new transmission. Yes, VWs of late have had a lot of issues with their transmissions, but then again, they recently haven't made such claims about never having to change fluid.
Their recent double clutch gearboxes however are extremely expensive on fluid changes in my opinion. If you can find an aftermarket specialist who knows their oil, then you can save a small fortune in oil. VW DSG gearbox oil is some of the most expensive on the mainstream market if you get it at the dealership.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

The coolant jug has a creamy tan color fluid in it


that means trans fluid or engine oil is getting into cooant system. Not good. Either a leaky trans cooler in the radiator or a blown head gasket. Hope it's the trans cooler

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

Anti frezze and transmission oil mixed


The cooler for the transmission goes through the side tank in the radiator. It burst and caused a leak and the fluids to mix. Be sure to change the filter in the tranny as well as flush it. For the engine and the hoses, leave the t-stat out and run it with plain water and some dawn dish soap to carry as much of the oily residue out of the cooling system. You will need to do this several times, use about 5-6 oz. of soap when you fill the cooling system up to flush the oily mix out.
