Coolant every 1000,000 miles, transmission fluid and filter is changed every 60,000 miles, flushing the transmission doesn't replace the filter and is not recommended by this tech

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.

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion

your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

Coolant in transmission

Yes, coolant in the transmission will kill it very quickly. You need to get the transmission flushed professionally. Usually a quick lube will have a way to do this for you. Getting the trans fluid out of the cooling system is not as important but will still be a mess.

Transmission oil and radiator coolant is creamy

probably have a leaking transmission cooler in the radiator assembly, this would explain why the two fluids are mixing, replace radiator and flush cooling system, and then have transmission flushed and serviced to remove contaminated coolant from transmission

What maintenance service is needed at 45,000 miles? When should I have a transmission flush? When should I have a coolant flush?

Transmission flush should be done every 30,000 mi. according to my local garage that does it.

Also, the coolant can be flushed every year or two even though the guarantee lasts for up to 5 years against corrosion for most brands of antifreeze.

I dont have a problem per say but i went to get an oil change and they told me i need Transmission service $159.95 Coolant flush $89.95 Fuel induction service $99.95 and fuel filter $89.95 totaling in...

They are scamming you... never go there again... Not likely that you need those services on your 2007 Elantra.

Parts estimate:
Transmission service ~ $6
Coollant flush: $20 ~ $30
Fuel injection service $20
Fuel Filter: $13

Service estimate:
Transmission service $40
Coolant Flush $30
Injector service $50
Fuel Filter replace $20

Total Parts & Service = $209
However, you probably don't need all that...
Does your car have any particular problems?
Please comment ... Thanks..

How to do a transmission flush for a lexus LS 430 2001

All transmission flushes are done by machines at an auto shop. The process which happens is they drain the tran. fluid out then hook up there machine to run cleaning fluids from the top to the bottom for several minutes flushing out all the impurities and old oil. Then they fill back up with normal transmission fluid and your typically suppose to change out the fluid after a flush in as little as 5k miles. After that your good for a long time!
Hope this helps!
Good luck!!

Transmission issues after transmission flush

Well first off, coolant in the transmission will cause transmission failure if left in long enough. Proving why the radiator failed will be another story.
