Question about 1996 Dodge Caravan
Transmission fluid is sometimes cooled by way of a seperate internal tank within your radiator, the fluid is passed through hoses and steel or aluminum tubes from the transmission to the radiator, as the fluid flows thru the internal tank within the radiator it transfers heat from the fluid into the coolant within the radiator which then exchanges the heat from the coolant thru the radiator fins and into the ambiant air around the radiator.
That being said, if the internal transmission fluid tank or the connections at or within the radiator develop some sort of leak, the two fluids(coolant and transmission fluid) will mix and will show up where it shouldn't be! You may have an internal leak within the radiator, which means the radiator needs to be replaced.
