Are you sure its leaking from the cooler, these vehicles are notorious for the side tranny pan behind the left wheel rotting out from road debris.

2005 dodge grand caravan transmission will not shift. radiator fluid rusty color


Check your coolant for any trans fluid mixing,& ck the trans fluid for coolant, the radiator may have an internal leak (trans/ coolant), If they are mixing within the rad, radiator needs replacement. If OK then there may be 2 separate problems. The cooling system may need service or the rad is rusted and there is a separate trans problem. Ck for fluid mixture first!

The 2000 dodge grand caravan has two lines running from a cylinder just to the right and bottom of the radiator. it looks like power steering fuel runs through


if their metal, the could be coming from transmission fluid lines, are they going into radiator ? one @ top & one @ bottom of rad . their cooling lines from trans, supply / return . if rubber lines, they go to a transmission cooler , looks like a small radiator, rectangular , supply / return. power steering has no cooling . these lines don't come from engine, power steering has power steering fluid NOT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID, TOTALLY DIFFERANT !!!!!!

96 dodge grand caravan trans fluid in radiator


Your radiator has a cooling chamber built into it where your transmission/transaxle lines are attached. If that chamber/tank gets a crack or hole, transmission fluid will start to pump into your cooling system. This will cause damage to both your cooling system as well as your transmission. To repair this problem, you will need to either replace the radiator, or install a SEPERATE AUXILLARY trans cooler kit for 1/4 the cost of a radiator. This MUST be seperated from the radiator, or you will continue to have the same problem. This is a temporary fix as eventually the breach will get large enough to start leaking coolant if it doesn't already. Once you replace the radiator, the auxilary cooler will still be a nice upgrade for your vehicle.

2000 impala red circle recessed in radiator is leaking replace repair? ect...


It seems that the "black bolt" is the bolt-shaped sheet metal around the fitting for your trans cooler line. If you are certain that your connection is good and the leak is coming from around that fitting then you will have to replace your radiator as the area around the fitting is probably cracked. Take a good close-up look, with an inspection mirror and a light, to try to determine from where the fluid is leaking.
Does your other line have an O-ring?

Put a new radiator on 3 days ago...transmission fluid is in the anti-freeze..


It sounds like you got a bad radiator! Or your transmission got hot enough before you replaced the radiator to rupture the cooling jacket.

A Jimmy runs pretty hot, so I always recommend the separate transmission cooler to help with the engine and transmission cooling problems of the Jimmy.

I hit a deer and now oil is leaking out of the front of the radeator what could it be


Are you sure it's oil because your transmission cooler lines connect to the radiator so it may be transmission fluid that's leaking. I really can't see any place that oil would be in that area. good luck and I hope the deer tasted good after you cooked him.

I have a 2000 toyota 4runner SR5 3.4 liter 4WD. My question is my anti freeze mixed with my transmission fluid then it burst out. What are the common problems with this matter. Thanks for your reply in...


you radiator is shot and you need to get the trans flushed out as soon as possible before it burns the trans up. The trans uses the radiator as a cooler and the internal cooling line has ruptured. How did it burst out? from where? What burst?

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.8 L eng with an automatic transmission. I noticed that sometimes the transmission will disengage. I put it back in park then drive and it goes as normal. Today I found...


Most automatic transmissions will have a cooler that is in the radiator. Some will also have an external cooler (really common on vehicles with a towing package). It is really common for the cooler hoses to leak on the caravans. Make sure you are using ATF+4 for trans fluid. No other transmission fluid should be used in a chrysler!

I have transmission fliud in my radiator


You need to replace your radiator and flush your cooling system, replace the thermostat and also service your transmission. Have your transmission fluid and filters replaced. The transmission fluid is entering the radiator though the transmission cooler which is built in the radiator and it has failed. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
