I have a bad feeling this is fgoing to cost alot I have atranny coolr I am guessing my tranny cooler can get flushed then putsome new tranny fluid but do I have to flush the tranny and the coolant since they are probably both mixed. I need help will I need a new tranny or sometihng how do you know if you do please help me I need help. If someone can tell me a good radiator (performance) wise that will be better than the 97 one. thanks

I believe Griffin is making radiators for our cars now. I'd ask Lonnie I think he got a deal with them. I hope you aren't getting water int he transmission as well because it will cause the clutches to all peel off.

If the trans fluid looks pink drain it and change it immediately, drive it a little to warm it up and do it again. I would just use dexIII as a "flush"

I recently had the same thing. I caught it early (car was in the shop getting an AC hose/muffler assembly replaced and the system recharged) but I had a SLIGHT indication of water in the tranny fluid, mainly I had serious strawberry shake thing going in the coolant.

I drained and replaced the Mercon V in the tranny, it did not look at all like water and oil mixing, not in the external cooler, the radiator cooler, the tranny, or the torque convertor. I would guess in my situation the tranny line pressure was far higher than the cooling system.

I am still to this day trying to get the cooling system cleaned out. I get a tiny bit of tranny fluid that sticks to the edges of the degas bottle, I stick a paper towel in there and soak it up. I think I am done now, it has been 500 miles since the last time I cleaned it, and there is nothing floating.
