The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

Check your oil if it's not the color it normally us and looks slushy than you have a blown head gasket that's when your oil mixes in with your antifreeze and to fix that you either need a new engine or change the head gasket

Transmission oil in the radiator


If the radiator has tranny fluid mixed in with the coolant, then you have an internal tranny cooler leak. At the one side of the tranny, in the saddle tank, there is a tube. This tube allows hot tranny fluid to enter the rad and be cooled before returning to the transmission. It should be totally isolated and submerged in the coolant tank. Occasionally they can leak, and the two fluids will mix. You will need a new rad to repair the problem. It would also be recommended to have the tranny fluid and the coolant flushed after wards. Oil of any kind does not mix well with coolant, and could cause future damage to the tranny more so than the engine.

Describe your how do i replace 1993 jeep Cherokee radiator


Start steps when vehicle is cold. Drain the rad fluid - located passenger side lower bottom of the rad. When draining remove the rad cap (keep your bucket there for complete job). After empty, the tranny lines must be removed, a tool is available for this - from Parts Source or UAP. They join at the bottom of the rad, after removing (don't break the clips or lose them) keep the lines upright to avoid draining the tranny fluid. Undo the 2 bolts holding the fan shroud, slowly and gently push the shroud towards the motor (do not bend the tranny lines attached to the rad). Then lift up and move to the motor. Undo the clamps holding both rad hoses, drain the bottom hose into the bucket. Undo the 8 screws or bolts (10mm ??) holding the top plate that keeps the rad stationary - the hood latch is connected to it, move it towards the front of the vehicle. Pretend you are dismantling a bomb, one wrong move and you will be replacing more than a rad. Lift the rad straight up, watching everything in the way. With the rad on the ground with the tranny lines pointing upright, spray WD40 on the tranny lines and undo them (inspect for any holes). Be smooth when you do it or you will be buying new ones. Start with last step first when you install new rad.

Tranny fluid in my radiator -next step ?


If tranny fluid is present in the antifreeze, you need a new radiator as there would be a crack in the trans cooler that is within one of the radiators tanks.

Radiator vs. transmission


same issue. tranny fluid is cooled via intercooler that runs along bottom of radiator. this developed a crack and because tranny fluid is under more pressure, started dumping tranny fluid into radiator. A couple guys recommended replacing rad, then servicing tranny just in case any coolant leaked backwards.
