2003 acura mdx leaked all the transmission fluid out through the radiator and now it wont shift into gear?


It does not have any fluid to work with. You also burned out many of the internal transmission components if you drove it until it was dry. If the fluid just poured out onto the driveway, then keep the vehicle off. Remove the radiator and fix or replace it. Refill the trans with proper type of fluid.

If the trans and radiator fluids mixed, which can happen if the radiator tanks leak between chambers, then your trans is corroded inside. The radiator can be tested if you can not tell by looking at the Antifreeze. The bottom radiator tank is suppose to be separate and as long as it leaked on the ground, the 2 fluids did not mix.

Your biggest problem now is to determine whether the trans is any good without spending money to fix the radiator. If you take out the Radiator, some places will test it free. Ask them about whether the 2 fluids mixed.
It will be key to knowing the worst case condition.

Your trans fluid oils all the bearings and bushings and pumps inside the trans. If the engine is not turning, the trans will not burn out its parts. If the engine is idling, the trans will burn out without fluid.

I attempt to give the cheapest Solution to your problems. You can only test the Radiator separately by removing the radiator or having the vehicle towed in. There is no way of knowing if the trans was damaged until fluid is restored to the trans. If the 2 fluids mixed, it is a bad thing. If the 2 fluids were not mixed, then it is better for the trans, but bad things happened to the trans without having fluid in it. Sorry I can not give you better news.

Trans fluid in radiator tray


You are leaking transmission fluid from either the fluid cooling lines that run from transmission to a separate reservoir in the radiator, or leaking from the reservoir itself. Hopefully, it's only the lines and may just need tightening to stop the leak.
There are two lines to the radiator's reservoir. One brings fluid from transmission to the reservoir, and a return line back into the transmission. Probably located on driver's side of the radiator, one will be near top of radiator, and one near the bottom. Small copper or steel lines that may also turn into rubber lines. Clean the area well with rags to locate the leak. Will probably need to have the car running to make it leak, while looking for it. You could also take a wrench and try tightening the fittings at the radiator, and tighten any rubber hose clamps that you see. If it's not the lines or hoses that are leaking, then the radiator may need to be pulled off for repairs or replacement. But 9 times out of ten, it is a leak from one of the lines.
When fixed, don't forget to check your transmission fluid level. Or keep adding till it is fixed.

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.

Trans, cooler ? Does the Dodge 2002 Intrepid have a transmission cooler, in front of or near the radiator, if so can fluid leaks occur after replacing the main radiator on the car. Have one that has leaked...


Hi:
You are correct. Almost all automatic cars have a transmission cooler connected to the radiator with 2 hoses, near the bottom. If the hoses are leaking or not installed correctly, all of the fluid from your transmission will get pumped out on the ground, and you won't be able to move the car. Inspect the two hoses and hopefully you will find your problem.

Why do i got trans fluid in my radiator it over heats and oily water comes out


The radiator has a trans cooler built in to it. The trans cooler is apparently bad and leaking trans fluid into the radiator coolant. You need a new radiator and a complete cooling system flush along with a trans flush. If you continue to operate the vehicle you take the chance of damaging the engine and transmission. Your looking at a minimum of $400 to replace the radiator and flushing both systems. But a transmission replacement can cost upwards of $3000 or more not to mention engine damage. Have this done asap.

I have a leak somewhere in the tranny line on my 88 mercury cougar. how do I check for certain? every morning there is a puddle of tranny fluid underneath the car. It still has fluid in it and shifts but...


To make this as simple as possible, the trans lines go from trans to radiator back to trans. The question is where is puddle? If near radiator, then radiator must be going bad or you have a crack in radiator where trans fluid circulates. If in front of trans then front seal in trans is bad, if in middle then pan gasket bad, if in rear the rear seal bad. Hope this helps.

I have oil in radiator ,transmission slips


Does the oil in the radiator look reddish? likely it does...You most likely have a failure inside the radiator where the trans cooler coil runs through it. Replace radiator and have trans fluid changed and flushed. If slipping continues trans will need a rebuild. (hope not)
