The coolant lines for the transmission cooler are on the radiator and is is separated internally from the engine cooling.radiator.
there may be a rupture internally in the radiator and you are getting coolant into the transmission.
hope this helped

Volvo c70 carbriolet modle 2006 oil ranning in to the cooling water tank what causes that?


if it is an automatic transmission the problem will be a split cooling tank that is inside one of the radiator tanks
the fix is a new radiator and a full flush of the cooling system

The car is surging when I put it in reverse. Just had the oil trap cleaned which is what Volvo told me was the problem.


Volvo auto boxes are very sensitive to the wrong transmission fluid. If it was changed during the clean make sure the correct Volvo specified transmission oil was put back in.

Transmission slipping


not necessarily-- Have an oil pressure test done to determine for internal failures.. Have the bands and clutch packs adjusted. Have the oil changed as it may be just dirty oil. Run the fault codes and check for TCM faults. A transmission replacement should be considered the absolutely last resort and a second opinion sought if it is recommended.

Why is the transsmition oil and water are mix together


The Transmission oil passes through the radiator to keep it cool , If the pipes inside the radiator are damaged then water can enter into the trans lines causing the problem you are having.
Get the radiator checked and repaired/replaced...
Also get the Trans fluid changed as water can damage the trans internals.
Hope this helps.

Oil in the water


It is probably transmission fluid coming in from the trans cooler in the radiator. I would suspect it needs a new radiator.

Engine oil dipstick shows water and rust mixed in with oil


Everyone always jumps to head gaskets. There are plenty of MINOR things that can be looked at first.
The Volvo 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 Inline 5 Cylinder dipstick tube is known to develop a large amount of condensationin winter months and stop and go driving. What you see on your dip stick is possibly just condensation. Take off your oil cap and look under the cap and inside the valve cover. Is there any thick foamy oatmeal like substance or noticeable amounts of water? If your oil was saturated with coolant, you would be able to see it up there too. Check your coolant for oil. Volvo coolant is typically brown to orange, however make sure there is no sludge. Start the car with the cap off and keep an eye out for alot of bubbles. A large amount of bubbles is a sign of a bad head gasket. A couple here and there is just air in your cooling system.
Coolant, Transmission fluid, and Oil have several places they can mix. If you have a turbocharged Volvo, the seals in the turbo can go bad and cause a mix of oil and coolant. Your transmission cooler is also in your radiator, and if it cracks your transmission fluid and coolant can mix. I believe turbo models have an oil cooler built into the radiator as well.
Overall if your car sounds fine, you dont see oatmeal, your not using coolant and oil in excessive amounts, dont have white smoke, and your turbo isnt whining you probably just have condensation in your dip stick. If you are overly concerned you can send a sample of your oil to a lab and have it tested for traces of coolant. Headgaskets rarely fail on Volvo's, even the old ones....I have seen many that have gone to replace them have not found a failed gasket and end up finding a bad transmission cooler or a bad turbo.

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.
