SOURCE: transmission fluid in radiator. milky and oily

Suggest (STRONGLY) that you stop driving the car until someone confirms the following:
Your transmission fluid cooler is ruptured and is forcing fluid into the engine cooling system.

No fear about hurting the engine... but the water and antifreeze in the radiator will distroy the transmission - quickly.

Please confirm the rupture before incurring a 2,000 dollar transmission replacement bill!!

SOURCE: why do i got trans fluid in my radiator

The radiator has a trans cooler built in to it. The trans cooler is apparently bad and leaking trans fluid into the radiator coolant. You need a new radiator and a complete cooling system flush along with a trans flush. If you continue to operate the vehicle you take the chance of damaging the engine and transmission. Your looking at a minimum of $400 to replace the radiator and flushing both systems. But a transmission replacement can cost upwards of $3000 or more not to mention engine damage. Have this done asap.

SOURCE: My 98 Pontiac sunfire has been overheating lately.

well, sounds like the heater core is bad for one, ive had a couple with the same problem, first thing is to have a block test done ,this will tell if exhaust is entering the cooling system, this is caused from overheating the motor, causing a warped head or blown head gsaket even crack the head,that is what pops the heatercore to much preasure for the plastic heatercore, if thats the case make sure the car is worth it,start there with the test, may have to have a garage do this test, hope this helps.

If the system is loosing coolant, it has be leaking from some place, either from a connection, gasket or out of the tail pipe. When you refilled the cooling system, did you start the engine and inspect the vehicle while it was running and at operating temp?

Why is there coolant fluid in my transmission?


Auto transmissions cool fluid by running it through radiator, the core cracks and mixes the 2 fluids, have the radiator checked out. a way to test this is to remove the transmission lines and joining it with a small thin pipe, then running the engine. if water comes out of the transmission ports you need a new radiator

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion


your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

The 'High Engine Coolant Temperature/Automatic Transaxle Fluid Temperature and Low Coolant Level' Warning light is FLASHING. According to owner handbook the coolant is low. I added coolant. Fluids...


Look on the back of the engine for antifreeze-either by number 1-2 cylinder or back by the brake booster. It is a know problem with Saturn engines, leaking by the rear intake. Check under the surge tank, they crack and leak too-check the bottom of the water pump for leaks, it has a weep hole that, if the seal inside is broken, will leak. you need to look for symptoms and evidence of leaks-if there is no obvious leaks from hoses, or outside the engine anywhere, it may be a head gasket-check your oil for a milky texture, or greyish color. check the bottom of the surge tank for oily residue, and look for smoke coming from the tailpipe.

Something leaking and dripping off the bottom of the skirt at the front of the car


Hi, could be many things. First you should determine what type of fluid has leaked. If it is green or orange color and feels like water and slimy, it is most likely coolant. If it it reddish and oily, transmission fluid. If it is brownish to black and oily, probably engine oil. Bluish/purpleish/clear and like water it is windshield wiper solvent.
Second is to look underneath the area of the vehicle and try to determine which component the leak originated from. If you can determine those 2 things, repost the findings for further assistance.

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Over heating and steam coming out of exhaust manifold. No milky oil on dipstick.


sounds like blown head gasket or cracked head allowing coolant into exhaust ports. No water in the oil just means it didnt affect water getting into the oil ports. So the breach is between the water ports and the exhaust ports. It doesnt really matter. Its till the head gasket or the head itself. sorry..
