Mazie, Slater, Katz & Freeman, LLC is putting together a class action lawsuit against Nissan Motor Company related to issues where a leak from the radiator into the transmission is causing radiator and transmission failure. This problem is prevalent on several 2005, 2006 Nissan Frontier, Xterra, Pathfinder models. My vehicle is a 2006 Nissan Frontier. Please share your information so Nissan will have to accept responsibility for their defect. Go to www.transmission-lawsuit.com to share your details.

A guy has a LS for sale with a coolant leak. He says that 2 mechanics told him the transmission has to be removed to fix the coolant leak.


I am a mechanic and there is no reason for any coolant to be coming from tranny unless there is a bad freeze plug or the block is possibly cracked. i would look else where dont buy something you have to start putting more money into before you can drive it. there so many cars out there. good for you,for checking before you bought.

I have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous. The radiator coolant has leaked into the Transmission. How can I fix this outside of replacing the transmission?


You have a real problem on your hands. Not only did coolant get into the transmission, transmission fluid most likely got into your coolant as well. The trans fluid will eat the lining of all the rubber cooling hoses and cause them to soften and eventually fail, and will cause a black, gunky color in the coolant. You will need to:
1. Replace the radiator since the trans cooler inside has broken.
2. Replace all coolant hoses and flush the entire cooling system.
3. Have the transmission rebuilt or replaced to ensure all coolant traces have been removed.

There is no easy fix for this....I had to do it myself.

1996 ford e350 ****** leak


If there is a leak then it must be coming from some where , is there fluid on the ground? is it mixing in the coolant, check the coolant for oil mixing , this would be a bad cooler and radiator replacement will be needed, check lines to radiator and cooler .

Transmission fluid is leaking how do i fix it


Hi Sandra:
Normally if oil or transmission fluid mixes with coolant it will turn milky looking like a milkshake. Your leak must be pretty fresh. from your description that it is coming out of the coolant overflow I am thinking you have a radiator transmission cooler leaking into the cooling system.

You will need a new radiator and possibly all the coolant hoses if they have become soft from the transmission fluid.

In most cases if your getting transmission fluid in the radiator it is cause by a bad transmission cooler that is built into the radiator and the fix is to replace the radiator.

The repair will change in price from where the leak is coming from. If the pan is leaking or the rear seal your looking at $100.00 or less. If the front seal is leaking then around $550.00. The most common leak is the pan gasket. Also if the transmission fluid and filter have not been replaced in the last 30,000 miles and the pan is leaking then I suggest doing this also why the pan is off .

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1. Your clutch is not releasing. This is commonly caused by a leaking slave cylinder. Replace it.
Could also be an indicator of really hard driving.
2. Leaks like this usually don't fix themselves.Flush the rad, replace it it the bottom fins are rotted, double check the themostat and the hoses.

3. Bent in at the bottom? Someone has hit a curb, HARD! You've bent the lower control arm and this has to be replaced. If this was just a control arm bush (these are replacable with a shop press) you'l usually hear rattling.

Do you ever smell a sweat kind of gross smell when your turn your car on? If not, and there are no drips in the driveway and no movement of the antifreeze levels, then they must be trying to extort some money from you. The Ethylene Glycol (Antifreeze) would have to be going somewhere (evaporating or leaking) in order for there to be a crack in the line.

Radiator vs. transmission


same issue. tranny fluid is cooled via intercooler that runs along bottom of radiator. this developed a crack and because tranny fluid is under more pressure, started dumping tranny fluid into radiator. A couple guys recommended replacing rad, then servicing tranny just in case any coolant leaked backwards.
