SOURCE: I think my trans fluid is leaking into my

meqst2010, This could be a radiator problem. Look at the side reservoir of the radiator and see if there are lines coming in. This is for the cooling of the transmission fluid and the internal cooler may have sprung a leak. When the vehicle is cold open the radiator cap and see if the fluid if floating on the top. If so then you will have to have the radiator replaced and the whole cooling system should be flushed. I would have the transmission fluid and filter replaced as well as a precaution. Good luck with this.

Oil in the radiator overflow reservoir


If it is engine oil, you could have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket. If its trans fluid, you could have a leak inside the radiator.

Why was the transmission fluid milky in color on my 97 blazer


Water mixed into trans fluid or oil will cause a milky appearance. Either there is a bad seal on the trans and you drove thru flood waters or the heat transfer pipe for the trans that is inside of the radiator has failed. Don't drive!!! Have it towed to a trans shop and have them check it out or you may be replacing the entire trans.

Found transmission fluid in the rediator overflow. engine is 3.0 v 6


Your transmission cooler in the radiator tank is probably leaking, A radiator shop could probably replace the cooler but if the radiator is old you should replace the whole thing.

Oil in overflow tank


Could be tranny fluid or engine oil. Check trans and engine oil and see if they have water in them.Water in engine oil can mean a bad head gasket but could also mean bad intake gaskets or oil cooler if it has one.( rare on this car)Water in the trans most of the time means oil cooler in the radiator. This is bad and will mean transmission failure soon. The chemical reaction of the antifreeze and transmission fluid damages clutches and internal seals.

My H2 is making Chocolate Milk Coolant!


The radiator has an internal trans cooler that must be leaking, the radiator needs to be replaced and the cooling system flushed of all the trans fluid. Usually the radiator hoses and hoses going to the heater core will need to be replaced because the trans fluid will soften the rubber and make them swell. Good luck, Honda Al

My trans fluid is mixing with my radiator fluid, what can i do.


I hate to contradict the prior poster, but I would not see how a blown head gasket could get transmission fluid into the radiator. Motor oil, yes, but transmission fluid, no.

the transmission fluid in your tranny runs out of the transmission and up into the radiator to cool it off.

So if there is transmission fluid in the radiator, I'd look for a leak in the radiator. If it is mixing the two fluids then the leak is probalby internal.

Remember that if the radiator is now 'mixing' water and transmission fluid, there is a possibility that the fluid/water mixture may be going back into the transmission as well
