Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
You have a very expensive problem on your hands--the common core radiator for the cooling system and the oil cooler for the transmission has leaked one into the other. The fix is to replace the radiator or to block off the connections to the transmission lines and install an auxiliary oil-cooler attached to the radiator core thus saving the original radiator. Unfortunately, the transmission has very likely drawn in coolant into itself which needs to be completely cleaned out, the internals of the transmission inspected--particularly, the bearings and any other close fitting components. Farming this job out will likely cost over $3000! It might be cheaper to replace the transmission with one from a wrecking yard. Hope this helps!
