TRANSMISSION

2004 Dodge Neon

Transmission problem
2004 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

2004 Dodge Neon 2.2L

My mom called me up saying the transmission is having problems. I checked the fluid level and it was out, I filled the fluid back up started the car and moved it around no problems at first. Then it all poured on the ground. I looked for a ruptured hose but found none. I then noticed that the fluid was draining out of the engine coolant overflow tube. I am puzzled because I am use to the transmission being a separate assembly on vehicles, but am not certain on this car. Is the transmission and engine connected more than I think internally, and do you have any ideas on what would be the issue?

Thanks.

The transmission oil cooler shares the engine coolant and is connected by transmission oil cooler hoses running from tranny to radiator. Oil cooler may be faulty
