No, it can not since the trans cooler is separate and mounted in front of the radiator.

Yes, it could be leaking into the radiator from transmission cooler in the radiator. I would flush as much of that out as you can and replace the radiator, the anti-freeze is very damaging to your transmission.

1999 Dodge 3500 4x4. 5.9 cummins. Transmission heats to 230 when pulling in tow within 3 to 5 miles. Tranny was completely overhauled and new sensors installed. They said the flow was fine. It works fine...


Sounds like wrong hydro fluid, low fluid or restricted flow of fluid, or converter was set up wrong, could be wrong sensors, check temp with a lazer.

That fluid and filter is due to be changed. The stuttering is evidence off low charge pump pressure at the reverse clutch pack . Filter service should be done every 80,000 miles.

drop the transmission oil pan and drain it and replace the filter...
If you have over 100,000 miles and have never had a transmission flush before, don't do one now. just do a drain and fill. if that doesn't help, you might need a rebuild.

My is shifting from 2 to drive back to 2 why is it doning that


Check your tranny fluid levels- if they are low your transmition will slip between gears, however if you notice any kind of free reving while its shifting (like being reved up when in park or neutral) then the hydrostatic clutches are slipping and the transmition needs repair.

Another thing you should investigate is your transmition kick down bar (it shifts the trany into a lower gear when accelerating hard to help pick up speed.

The transmission is slipping.

Sounds like it needs more than just adding fluid. I'd take it in for service before the transmission is further damaged.
