If you run low on trans fluid you will get problems, best sort it out sooner rather than later.

If the fluids are leaking out from radiator, it is not going to damage the transmission but the depletion of fluids would.

If fluis is leaking into radiator, coolant would get to transmission and damage it.

Either way you need to get the leakage rectified. If coolant is leaking, you are going to overheat and damage the engine sooner or later.

Yes, my radiator id cracked and now I think my tranny is slipping because of the depleated fuel, I am just concerned that I could really damage the tranny t the point where I might need a re build or once I change the radiator I should be fine, what is your opinion? I am going to fix the radiator this week just waiting for free time from work.

Check the transmission fluid level and top up if necessary. Just pray that you have not damaged the trans due to the low fluid level which would be fine once the radiator is fixed and fluid leve at the correct level.

If the radiator coolant is ****my and pinkish in colour, oil has mixed with the coolant, if in any doubt drain the trans oil and change the filter as a precaution.
