Hi I took my 1992 cadillac deville radiator out today because it had a hole in one of the fins. I tried using propane to solder it while it was on the car but it kept catching on fire. I took the radiator out and soldered it. When I took off the 3 out of the four lines it had fluid coming out. Is this oil fluid or is this something else. If it is oil do I need some more to the engine. Thanks.

Do you

One side of the radiator has a transmission cooler and the other side has a oil cooler not sure which side is which. Follow the cooler lines to see which is which. If oil or transmission is low of course top off the level.
