Re: antifreeze in the oil
Chances are the problem is abd seals on the water pump impeller. You can check three sources for a diagram.
Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual and parts manual. www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.aspMost all of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

I don't think its transimisson fuild .
Is the smoke white if so the head gasket is blowen.
Not really many ways transmission fuild can enter the combustion chamber unless the transmission cooler lines are breached inside the radiator.
Do you see antifreeze on the oil dipstick or oil floating on top of the antifreeze in the radiator white foem its 25 years old think about that
Is your antifreeze leaking on the ground in the front of the motor ? There are many different things to do to find the right answer to this question. 1 : pull the motor dipstick. If oil mixes with the water - antifreeze the dipstick will look milky. If it does not. And looks good. Then 2: with water in the radiator don't put antifreeze in it keeps wasting $$ til leak is found. 3 : start motor look from under the front of the water pump with a flashlight if you have a dripping from a weep hole in the water pump bottom behind the fan. If you can't find a leak shut off the motor. Feel the bottom of the water pump if there is a presence of water you'll need a new one. If not .4:if the motor is over heating or has been blowing antifreeze out of the overflow hose along the side of the radiator. If so the thermostat may be stuck. Much cheaper repair.
Its realy not that hard to remove radiators and you don't need a lot of tool to do it. The first thing you need to do is find the small drain on the bottom of the radiator called the petcock usely has a thumb screw or plastic nut. And also has a nipple to attach a small hose to . Open the petcock after you attach the hose and let it drain into a container you olny need to drain a qt and a half out or so .Then you need to remove the fan shroud witch is held together with small bolts 5/16 or 8 mm. If you have remote fans disconect the electrical conecters and they will come out with the shroud . Then disconnect the radiator hoses top first then the bottom you will loose more antifreeze so put your container under the bottom hose and do it slowly but most ou the antifreeze is in the engine block so elevate the hoses wedge them behind what ever you is easyest in the engine compartment . If you have an automatic transmission you will need to remove the cooling lines that go into the radiator . You will see two plastic clips 1 red and 1 blue on most chevys . They will expand and pull of by hand . Under those will be small clips called E clips that can be easly removed with a small screw driver these hold the Orings tight that seal the oil lines .Once again eleavte these lines so they don't leak oil on the ground . Then lift the radiator out and tip it to drain the rest of the antifreeze and oil into a container and your done .you may want to get new Eclips and O rings for the oil line seals if you see any damage to them but if they look OK then you can reuse them . Wonce you see it and have done it you'll see its not hard to do good luck
CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAKS AROUND THE RADIATOR LOOK DOWN BETWEEN COOLING FANS AND RADIATOR SIDES FOR SIGNS OF ANTIFREEZE.CHECK ALL RADIATORS HOSES AND HEATER HOSES.IF ALL LOOK GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL FOR COOLANT LEAKS.IF OIL LOOKS LIKE MILK SHAKE COOLANT LEAKING IN CRANK CASE.YOU HAVE A HEAD GASKET LEAK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE OIL + FILTER. GET THE HEAD GASKET FIX.BECAUSE LEAK IN THE CRANK CASE WILL LOCK UP THE ENGINE.IF CRANK CASE OIL LOOKS OKAY.YOU DONT HAVE THE COOLANT CORRECT MIXTURE.YOU SHOULD HAVE 50/50 ANTIFREEZE AND WATER.
radiator antifreeze: open drain **** on radiator and drain refill with water re plug and leave radiator cap off. start vehicle. watch when coolant drops or rises drastically as that is the thermostat opening. at that time re open drain **** and fill radiator with hose water at the same time. when water coming out is completely clear again turn vehicle off and drain radiator again. fill with antifreeze and water mix. 50/50
oil: jack up car, find oil plug, directly behind steering rack on oil pan. undo plug and drain oil into container. while oil is draining remove oil filter. wait for oil to drain completely then re-install drain plug and new oil filter(filled with oil) undo oil cap and pour in oil 4.5 quarts on n/a and 5 for turbo. tighten cap and your done.
brake system: dont attempt, use an experienced mechanic as the lines need to be bled in numerous places including inside the car from the abs module mounted behind the passenger seat.
easy brake system: individually bleed brakes while adding fluid until clear fluid comes out. (not efficient)
a/c: do not attempt unless you have an evac pump for ac systems.
clutch: same as easy brake except using the bleed valves at the slave cylinder and on passenger side fender well.
washer fluid: add fluid and squirt a little to make sure there is no air in the line
drain the antifreeze, oil, and disconnect the battery ground cable (black). remove all hoses going to radiator (2 fat ones for the antifreeze and 2 small ones for the oil cooler. remove mounting bolts and top guard bolts. replace radiator, and reverse instructions. when replacing antifreeze, use half antifreeze and half water.
Can you check to see the transmission oil. See the quality of the oil, if there is antifreeze/water in it. It is possible that the antifreeze has entered the transmission and caused the transmission failure.
This is likely to be a cause of the radiator. The transmission oil cooler lines pass through the radiator and sometimes fail, causing antifreeze to pass into the transmission oil cooler pipes and then into the transmission, causing faults.
If this is the case, then you will have to replace the radiator. Repair or replace the transmission.
Hope this helps
