Is it possible when you have radiator fluid leaking that the timing is bad?

Best Answer

If the timing were off, it would be possible to overheat an engine, and have the overflow throwing water at you. But, in newer cars, this is usally not the case. You might have a bad hose somewhere-radiator, or heater hoses. And/or, the thermostat could be bad. NOPE

Why is the Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking transmission fluid from the radiator?

I wondered the same thing. The radiator doesn't only cool the engine coolant, It also cools the transmission fluid that comes from your transmission through the cooling lines. So your radiator has a crack somewhere and that would explain the transmission fluid leaking out. Hope that answers it. William @

How does trans fluid get into radiator?

You will notice two lines going to your radiator from the transmission. One is a service line and one is a return line. The radiator has a transmission cooler built into it. If you have trans fluid in the radiator chances are the trans cooler is leaking. A little trans fluid in the radiator will not affect engine cooling BUT as soon as the pressure drops in that transmission you may very well have radiator coolant sucked into the tranmission and that will ruin a transmission in a hurry. You need to get this checked out as soon as possible.
