1998 Tahoe transmission fluid gets into the cooling system?
The transmission cooler is built into the radiator, and the tubes on the cooler are leaking Trans. fluid into the engine coolant. Need to replace radiator.
How many quarts of transmission fluid does a 2004 Chevy tahoe take
The 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe transmission has a capacity of 12 quarts of transmission fluid. The manufacturer recommends that you never overfill the transmission.
Power steering fluid, transmission fluid and filter, cooling system.
dump the fluid in the bottle uder the hood that says transmission fluid.
Your transmission cooling tank is leaking into the radiator.Any oil in the cooling system will dramaticlly lower the cooling capabilities of your radiator.Replace rad. and flush coolig sys with cleaner.
It is red. All transmission fluid is RED.
On a 98 Chevy Tahoe, the transmission fluid pressure switch is located on the valve body. It is found to the right of the engine.
It is written on the transmission dip stick what type of fluid is used in that automatic transmission.
I suspect that the transmission cooler that is built into your radiator has leaked fluid internally into the coolant part of the rad and into the rest of the cooling system.
the cooling tank in the radiator for the transmission is bad
transmission cooling system failure. transmission has its own little, circle-like looking radiator (located on top of the transmission), and if it has a little crack or if it has a leak in the gasket it will mix transmission fluid with the coolant. good luck!
A 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ manual transmission engine can be filled with 6 quarts of fluid. Its cooling system, on the other hand, can be filled with 11 quarts fluid.
The 2 lines that come from the transmission and go to the radiator are full of transmission fluid and the radiator is what cools it.
The 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass cooling system has a fluid capacity of 5.5 gallons. The cooling system fluid should consist of 50 percent antifreeze.
The transmission fluid capacity for a 2002 Tahoe Z71 is 5 quarts. If you are starting with it totally empty it would be 11.2 quarts.
Check your radiator for signs of transmission fluid ( you will know as soon as you open the radiator cap) oily, creamy, gunky buildup. The transmission cooler is built into the radiator core and it is common for this to leak allowing coolant into the transmission and transmission fluid into the cooling system.
You will have to take off the big silver pan that is on the bottom of the transmission to drain the fluid and service the trans. filter.
Dexron VI is now the only transmission fluid approved by GM. It is backwards compatible to older vehicles.
About 5 quarts
In the tube that holds trans dipstick.
dextron iii or vi
A 1991 Chevy Camaro with a manual transmission needs Dexron II ATF fluid. It provides lubricant and cooling to the transmission.
Not as long as you put the proper fluid into the proper place such as, motor oil into the engine, gasoline in the fuel tank, antifreeze in the cooling system reservoir, transmission fluid in the transmission, brake fluid in the brake system reservoir, power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir, windshield washer fluid in the windshield washer fluid reservoir and don't forget to put blinker fluid in the blinkers! :)
A/T have a fluid line that runs through the cooling radiator of your car. My best guess is this tube is cracked inside your radiator. The radiator will needs to be replaced. I am not sure, but I believe that automatic transmissions often use engine coolant for cooling, and I suspect that there is a leak in the transmission. Transmission fluid cooling radiators are separate from the engine radiator, and transmission fluid is pumped through… Read More
Many transmissions have fluids that are cooled using the same process that your engine fluids use - the radiator system. Transmission fluid is special in many ways. When you first start your car, the fluid is not yet warm. Many transmission systems share the cooling system with your car, so if it is running hot, your transmission fluid will suffer. It could also simply be that your transmission is low in fluids. In any case… Read More
Bad seal? Bad cooling line to radiator?
your probably getting transmission fluid in your cooling system from the cooler in the rad. replace your rad
I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe as well. Like many cars, the automatic transmission fluid is poured directly into the same tube the transmission dipstick is located. The transmission dipstick has a red locking grip with the words 'TRANS/LOCK ->' imprinted on the handle. Do not confuse with the engine oil dipstick which has a yellow grab ring. The transmission dipstick has two ranges - one for cold transmission fluid levels, the other for hot… Read More
Yes you can. You could have a cracked head or engine block. In some cases the head gasket or intake gasket could be defective. Also check to see if your transmission fluid is low as the fluid passes through the radiator for cooling. If the cooling tank is cracked then it can enter the radiator.
The radiator has a transmission cooling tank in it. Evidently the tank has cracked. You may have a crack in your radiator your transmission cooling line runnz in your radiator good luck
The first step is to find out how it is getting in there. Normal cause is a failed transmission cooler. That may be part of the radiator itself. After the cause is repaired, you will have to flush the cooling system until there is no more oil in it.
Puddles of transmission fluid under the car where ever you park.
IF YOU have never done it, Then do it now Fluid and filter. Then change it every 20,000 miles there after.
Not a good situation. Don't drive it! The transmission cooler that is built in to the radiator is bad. The radiator needs to be replaced and the cooling system and transmission needs to be flushed completely. If any coolant is mixed with the transmission fluid it will destroy the transmission in a very short time. I repeat, don't drive it, have it towed to your local garage for repair.
According to the 2000 Lincoln LS Owner Guide : ( Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid is used in the engine cooling fan fluid reservoir )
Loosen one cooling line at the radiator, and let the fluid drain into a pan. When the fluid has stopped draining remove the other end of the hose. Pull the hose out and put the new one in following the same path. Do the same for the other hose, then refill the transmission using the dipstick to make sure to not over flow the system. Check the fluid level and all fittings after a short… Read More
There is no drain plug. Pan must be removed.
Blockage in the cooling system No or little fluid in the cooling system Radiator fan not working
The Cayenne transmission is a "sealed unit" that has fluid that is never supposed to need replaced. I don't tust any lubricant to last a lifetime but it is a pain to drain and fill and the Porsche fluid is extremely expensive. The transmission is designed with a drain (larger) and a filler (smaller) on the bottom of the pan. Draining the fluid will only remove about half of the fluid in the system, the… Read More
I was looking at the 2001 Lincoln LS owners manual and it shows that Motorcraft MERCON automatic transmission fluid is used in the engine cooling fan fluid reservoir
How do you change transmission fluid for a 1998 Cadillac Catera or do you need to take it to a shop?
It's a sealed unit. Any transmission shop can change the fluid by connecting into the cooling lines.
Transmission fluid 16 pts Engine oil with filter 7.5 qts Fuel Tank 20 gal. Cooling system 12.3 qts Thought I'd throw in some extras *Source: GM Repair Manual
u add the transmission fluid through the trans dipstick located on the left side of the engine.Make shure to cycle through the gears PRNDL and check it again.
if you have an automatic transmission there should be cooling lines going to the radiator to cool the transmission fluid the lines could be leaking or the tank could be leaking
Auto transmission radiator has a cooling chamber for transmission fluid to circulate
Most Likely you have a leak from the transmission cooling tank on your radiator to the antifreeze portion of the radiator. Jeff
Sounds like automatic transmission fluid ( If the transmission has been overfilled or has got water in it once the transmission is warmed up the fluid expands and can come out the vent tube ) or it can be a leak ( the transfer case for the AWD system and the Control Trac 4x4 system also has automatic transmission fluid inside it and the power steering system also uses automatic transmission fluid )
Several malfunctioning parts on a 2004 Tahoe can cause it to make noise when put in reverse. The transmission fluid should be check to see if there are any pieces of metal in the fluid. The transmission should be taken to be properly diagnosed to avoid the need of expensive repairs.
no way! never put transmission fluid in the fuel system. the car may catch on fire.
On a ( 2000 , 2001 , 2002 ) Lincoln LS : The engine cooling fan fluid reservoir is in the engine compartment , it is on the passenger side of the engine compartment . Fill it to the MAX line with MERCON automatic transmission fluid
