Transmission problem

Can a radiator leak transmission fluid without it getting into the engine coolant? Is the engine coolant ever red?

The dexcool is orange and yes it can leak transmission fluid with getting into the cool. Is it leaking right around the top transmission cooler line on the radiator if so you have cracked radiator and needs to be replaced.

Is it leaking below the upper radiator by the upper transmission cooler line if so you need a new radiator thats a really common place for them to crack and leak.
