Just replaced an oil pump and upon startup the radiator filled up with tranny fluid. Any suggestions for this?

If you have tranny fluid cooler lines going to the radiator, I think the radiator needs replaced or repaired.

What oil pump, did you replace, tranny?

What oil pump did you replace? If tranny cooler lines going to radiator, you need to get somebody with the proper tools that can test fluid pressure. If fluid pressure is too high, a new radiator may not help. You didn't really answer the questions I asked, I guess that is up to you?
