If you are losing trans fluidfrom your dipstick your vent to the trans may be blocked. The trans has to be pulled for that as the vent is behind the torque converter. If you are getting a gurling sound from your radiator it is either low or very hot. From wha tyou describe it sounds as you have a fan but no FAN SHROUD for the fan to pull air into the radiator. If it isn't there the fan is just moving around and not drawing air through the radiator.
