Tranny fluid

Make sure its not leaking into your radiator. Check coolant for any sign of contamination. I hope this is not the case, however, I have to mention it because we overlook basic things and jump straight to major issues. Good Luck

Meza, I assume your post was a reply to my Transmission disappearing question. I guess this is gonna sound ignorant but how would the tranny fluid leak into the radiator? Where?
Thanks,

Kodiak

Trans fluid is cooled by

a liquid to liquid heat exchanger in the radiator tank (note the tubes and hoses running from the trans to the bottom of the radiator); sometimes the heat exchanger cracks (or rots through, if bad coolant flushing habits are part of the car's history) and the result is an exchange of fluids rather than just an exchange of heat. This is disasterous for transmissions.
