If you have a different engine it could be radiator cooled, you need to look at the rad...anty lines screwed into it? Mine looked like coffee grounds when I got the car, hadnt been flushed in five years. if you look low inside the bottom of the grille, you can see the tranny cooler, that is if it's a V6 SOHC.
In fact there are two rubber hoses used for tranny flushing inside the left lower nose piece. If you have foamy stuff, but not oil, check for a head gasket problem...a block test will detect hydo carbons in the coolant if this is the case. If yours looks like this, and the foam is pinkish, you need a new radiator, or side tank.
You should also check the tranny fluid, if coolant is getting into it, the trannys friction plates will be ruined. Then another flush is in order...You can also remove the lines, use a pressure tester, if the tank is cracked antifreeze will come out of those holes!
