Your anti-freeze is a Dex-cool anti-freeze. It is not compatiable with the green kind. It is a long life coolant which can last up to 100,000 miles. If you have to top off, do not add water as this coolant comes pre-mixed.
This is transmission fluid. The leak is at the transmission cooler which may be part of the radiator.
Unless your radiator has a leak, the radiator fluid stays in the radiator.
no the red clay like stuff is transmission fluid in your radiator probably leaking from your transcooler
It is probably Radiator fluid that's leaking. if you have red radiator fluid. it looks purple when it heats up. I had this from my Toyota Sequoia when the leak went over the hot engine.
Most likely it's automatic transmission fluid, check to two metal lines going into the bottom of the radiator to confirm this.
change it! though could be mixing with your radiator fluid (green+red=brown) not good
Where is the radiator to put fluid for 2001 jetta?
Is the colour of the fluid green? or red, or does it smell? that's a definite sign that radiator coolant is finding its way onto your floor from the radiator, and if you let it continue and don't top up the radiator fluid inside the engine bay, your engine will overheat and die. Sounds to me like a heater radiator leak, don't drive the car until you are regularly checking the level of the fluid in the radiator and get it to a mechanic to swap that radiator out for a new one. and in addition get the mechanic to flush out the radiator fluid for new stuff.
Red, five year, hoat type.
red water, i can think of two possabilities, rust,but that would not be exactly red. 2 a leak in your transmission cooler that runs through the bottom of the radiator. transmission fluid is usually red. a leak here would get into your cooling system.
you have to put the radiator fluid in the overflow. This is the only way.
It comes in many colors. Green, red, pink, orange, blue, yellow, purple.
Cracked radiator end caps since the tranny fluid runs goes threw the caps for cooling that is the only way tranny fluid can get in the radiator
You replace the radiator
Bad radiator fluid.
"transmission fluid leaking from fitting below radiator cap after replacing radiator on 99 surburban
low radiator fluid
Red, 5 year, HOAT type.
the trans fluid on a auto trans goes through a tube in the radiator to cool the fluid if the tube has holes in it, it will leak trans fluid in to radiator. you need to replace radiator or have rebuilt.or you could put on a aux trans cooler and put plugs where the trans lines used to go.
i don't really know but get the 50/50 radiator fluid and fill it up
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.
Do it when the car is cold if the radiator is hot fluid may be forced out when you take off the cap.
