Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
Trans fluid can get into radiator by the trans cooler built into radiator side, automatics...
Engine oil can come thru cracked block, head gaskets
Which oil is it? Either way it needs to be fixed.
Typically with automatic trans they can overheat and cause engine temp issues, because they cool thru the radiator using an in tank cooler along side.
IF you overheat the trans you CAN overheat engine
IF you overheat the engine you CAN overheat the trans

Usually oill in the coolant means the head has cracked or at best you have blown a head gasket. I would have thought it was engine oil not tranmission fluid though
Curious about the colour of the oil in the coolant...
Check the engin oil filler cap and also the dip stick for traces of coolant. there will usually be a whitish creamy sludge evident especially on the oil filler cap.
Either way you need a mechanic to repair it I'd think unless you are a serious do it your self home mechanic.
