I attemped to drive my van today but it wouldnt move.I looked around and found a puddle under the front of the vehicle(nowhere near the tranny).I then pulled the dipstick and it was empty,So i added a few quarts guess where it went to the RADIATOR(i opened the cap thats how i know).Pulled the stick again and its empty again.I let the car run for about 20min with the radiator cap off it just over flowed with what i call chocolate milk.I then checked the engine oil (its clean no mixture).So what the fuck is going on.It is a grand voyager 97. :confused: :confused:

Your post is a little confusing. When I first read it, I thought it was the engine oil that was low. After reading it a couple times, I realized it was the tranny oil. Other people might be a little confused also, and think it was the engine oil that was empty.

If you dont want the expense/ hassle of replacing the radiator, then buy an aftermarket trans cooler from the parts store and install it. That will bypass the busted trans cooler thats in your radiator.

That's definately it homie, trans oil cooler is in the radiator. Disconnect trans cooler lines, flush cooling system, install new radiator, fill with coolant, and either top off trans with fluid or pull the pan off and replace filter/gasket/fluid if it's been awhile. ;)

Nope, that would be coolant and oil mixed.
