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.

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.

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.

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 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass cooling system has a fluid capacity of 5.5 gallons. The cooling system fluid should consist of 50 percent antifreeze.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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 them by a pump. They usually are not stock items, but have to be added on. You probably should take the vehicle to a transmission shop, and have them check it out. Coolant will dilute the transmission fluid, and possibly corrode the transmission parts.
