I have a small tranny oil leak that leaks into my radiator. What does that mean? Do I need a new tranny? Or is it a gasket problem.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

No, you will need a radiator. The tranny fluid is cooled by the radiator. There are 2 lines that go into the radiator into a tank that cools it. The tank has most likely cracked for some reason and is leaking the tranny fluid into the coolant.
