Transmission Fluid leak can be caused by couple of things.

Most common being an worn out or broken seal.

The transmission seals on most cars are made from rubber or metal.

Seal is exposed to extreme temperature for years and the parts moving around them will eventually cause seals to fail resulting fluid leak. Faulty installation of a seal can also cause a leak.

The another thing that can cause a leak is, if transmission case or pan is damaged due to low ground clearance.

What causes the transmission fluid to leak into the radiator?

I would say its a bad radiator are you sure its tranny fluid and not motor oil, in which case you could have a blown head gasket? **correct answer** there should be a transmission cooler that allows transmission fluid to flow through your rad at some point, these lines, when they break, will let transmission fluid into your rad, it also lets coolant into the transmission, which can destroy your transmission.

1994 geo prizm transmission fluid leaking and will not go into gear?

The fluid could be too low to allow the transmission to shift. Depending on where the fluid leak is, the leak could be through a bad solenoid or soaking electrical connections, stopping the transmission from shifting.


Internal leak in transmission?

When a transmission has an internal leak, the fluid pressure can drop and not flow to the proper valves. This can cause improper shifting, as well as cause transmission damage.
