We are experiencing a slight hesitation. The mechanic said the radiator has a small leak and antifreeze is leaking into the transmission. Can this happen? How serious is the problem? The mechanic is replacing the radiator. Will this solve the problem? Is there a chance the transmission is damaged?
They will drain the transmission and replace the fluid, in addition to replacing the radiator.
