These pictures should say it all, but the truck overheated and thin pink goop was in the reservoir and the radiator hoses and radiator. Sorry couldn't add pictures but it is pink in color like pepto bismol.

Hello,

This definitely sounds like you have a problem with your transmission cooler in your radiator. The problem is that your transmission will have to flushed out as well as a new radiator. The transmission really should be pumped out and it is hard to do yourself. Antifreeze will strip the friction material of of the clutches in your vehicle's transmission quickly, so flushing the transmission yourself might lead to more problems. I can send you instructions to replace your radiator if you would like. Please get back to us with what is going on.

Thanks,
Alex
