Transmission oil found in radiator


there is a cooler for the trans fluid that runs threw the f the radiator the cooler splits and trans pressure being higher while running pushes into the coolant how ever as it cools down the coolant pressure can push the coolant into the trans so see if the trans fluid looks like a straw beery milk shake if so try and keep flushing the trans until the fluid is clean and fresh if the trans makes it threw the coolant then you will need to flush the cooling system i use pinesol it breaks down the oil

GMC Sonoma automatic Transmission Problems, engine rev's in D & 3rd


First check trans. fluid. It should be full, & clean. Clean means light red color fluid (like red cool-aid) if it looks like darker red, or brown fluid, like motor oil, that is way too dirty & should be flushed. May need to change the filter too. dirty trans. fluid is your big enemy. could also be an electrical problem in the trans like a shift solenoid or something like that, but check for clean fluid first.

Replaced radiator but trans fluid is still mixing with coolant


Are you sure it's is ****** fluid and not oil? Just asking because that sound odd. If it is oil it would be a head gasket. In that case the bottom of the radiator cap will look like choclate milk. If you're sure it is trans fluid it would be cheaper to put a aftermarket transmission cooler on it and plug the radiator off where the lines hook in.

Transmission slipping on 03 GMC Envoy. what does iy mean when trans fluid measure high on dip stick?


Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this.
#2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.

Transmission is stuck in 3rd gear. starts in 3rd and does not shift


check your coolant fluid in the radiator and coolant pressure tank on side of the fender. nissan has some issue where coolant mixes with trans fluid in trans and the transmission goes south. if your coolant is not nice and green, than it mixed with trans fluid and your trans along with the radiator will have to be replaced. also check your trans fluid and make sure its nice and red, not pink and milky like strawberry milk. that is another sign of radiator cooler failure. start there and let me know what you find.

I have an 1987 toyota supra just did the breaks on and went to test them and moved the car and could stop but i got out of the car and there some red milky looking fluid on the ground that wasnt there...


Old brake fluid can be a dark brownish red color due to contaminates like rust in the system. But the fluid you speak of could be automatic trans fluid. Is your car an automatic? The power steering system in this car also takes automatic trans fluid. Check the fluid levels in the reservoirs. You may have either a auto trans leak or a power steering leak.

My H2 is making Chocolate Milk Coolant!


The radiator has an internal trans cooler that must be leaking, the radiator needs to be replaced and the cooling system flushed of all the trans fluid. Usually the radiator hoses and hoses going to the heater core will need to be replaced because the trans fluid will soften the rubber and make them swell. Good luck, Honda Al

Fluids


Trans axle and transmission are the same in a front wheel drive car. After 25 oil changes, the trans fluid probably should be replaced anyway, if never done yet. Pontiac/Toyota do recommend synthetic trans fluid, which is quite pricey per quart from the dealer. If you did drain the trans fluid, and didn't replace it, chances are you wouldn't be driving right now. I do wonder how oil change #26 went wrong? Not criticizing, just wondering. Hope this helps.

no that is the trans if it smells and looks like gear oil you need a transmission trans for transmission lock is the position to lock down the stick in this 4l60e your fluid is just that dirty there is NO way to check gear oil from the top at all once again that is your trans fluid yes it should be bright red but if it looks like gear oil you most likely have waited way too long to check it...
