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.
1999 Isuzu Troopers w/automatic transmissions do not come with a
dipstick. It is a sealed transmission just like a manual transmission.
The fluid must be checked by removing the fill plug. Emergency brake on,
engine running,warmed up ,vehicle in neutral. When removing the fill
plug ,which is on the side of transmission- at the top, fluid should
slightly drip out. If fluid doesnt drip out you need to add fluid. You
will need a small hand pump to fill it.
not knowing the make model and motor size complicates this, But as with the Malibu's that have no dip stick,, the fill hole is located on the tranny itself,, you have a drain and a fill bolt ,,fill the tranny until it starts to ease out with fluid, thats it, once thats done ,, put the bolt back and with the car running, go from Low to park a few times slowly , so any air works out of the lines
Yes it sounds like the tranny. Possible an easy fix though. There are two line that go from the tranny to the radiator or possibly a trans cooler. The connections may be lose. There is a cheap way to fix this and that is buying the brass barbed hose fittings that will screw into were the existing line go into the tranny and get transmission cooler hose and run new lines. Or replace it with original parts. I would like to say you are probably be fine to drive it as is just make sure to keep fluid level full. But if they come completely out or break lose you will be stuck and will lose all 7 to ten quarts of tranny fluid. Also when you check you tranny fluid it has to at operating temp and the engine running. Good luck hope this helps.
Is your Radiator fluid dropping at a greater rate? Is your overflow empty?
Does the drip only start once the engine reaches operating temperature?
Your biggest concern is to find the leak... it will lead to MAJOR engine problems if you lose enough engine fluids you will overheat.
Get this checked at once.
If it's losing tranny fluid and there are no visible leaks externally, try looking in the radiator and seeing if it looks like chocolate milk in there.More than likely you blew your transmission cooler which is built into the radiator, and that has been mixing with your engine coolant.Get back to me, I hope I could help..Thx,
What is overheating ? Engine or tranny? You said you put tranny fluid in, but not in the engine right? Engine sounds like it is toast. Is there any abnormal look to the engine oil on the dipstick? Are you losing coolant? If you add coolant with engine NOT hot, and watch the radiator fill spout with engine started and warming up, do you see water gurgling? Do a compression test.
Check your fluid level. If a trany is over filled then the fluid will begin to foam and blow out of the vent once heated. Or you may have a overheating tranny. You can disconnect the tranny lines from the radiator and blow air through the fluid line ports on the radiator to make sure your not getting a plug. You can also purchase an external oil cooler to hook inline with the fluid ports on the radiator just make sure that when you install it to install it on the port that returns the fluid back to the tranny not the one that delivers the fluid to the radiator, in other words after the radiator not before.
its a pain in the a.. to check under the car on passager side you got the axel shaft coming out of trany beside it there a plug before removing the plug heat up engine the motor running remove the plug 7/16 kee or 11mm if you see oil comming out its full if no oil come out take a funnel remove the red cap on the top of trany use gm oil only fill untill you see it drip under the car put plug plug back and that it be carefull to lift the car and not burning our finger will removing the cap
