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.

I changed trans pan gasket and it leaking between the trans and 4x4 crank case or the oil pan


if you changed the trans oil pan and used a gasket it probably will leak ,most dodges use mopar atf-rtv sealer available at the dealer for the trans pan,,if it is leaking between the trans and tcase you will have to determine which unit is leaking fluid and replace the seal and gasket between them you can put oil dye in the tcase fluid and run it and use a dye light to see if the fluid leaking has dye in it and if not then it is the trans

Leaking fluid


Only so many places these trans 41 TE can leak on the vans. Lines on top, speed sensors(input, output)one is below the lines the other is to right of the lines. Dipstick tube, trans solenoid gasket, Oil pan & extension gasket. Wipe off & clean area very well. Lines leaking, check clamps first before replacing. Speed sensor leaking replace o ring, Dipstick tube replace o ring, Trans solenoid replace gasket, Extension plate replace gasket If the pan is leaking you change the trans filter & put a gasket on the pan. The book says RTV on the pan, but FelPro make a gasket for the pan $6.99. Use a Chrysler trans filter!!!! O rings for sensors, tube around $3 each, trans solenoid gasket $3, extension gasket $10, Filter $11 + gasket $7 & 4qts trans fluid if doing the filter or extension gasket.

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

Some kind of oil in coolant


Start by flushing the radiator first. Also if the oil is darkish in color it's a big possibilty it is tranny oil. If the car was worked on because of blown gasket then oil residue is also a probability.

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)
