2002 Dodge Neon Q&A

2002 Dodge Neon Question: there is transmission fluid in the radiator and coolant in the transmission line

the car had overheated , never doing this before , and at the same time the transmission started messing up , as in didn't want to shift into gear , i know nothing about cars but was told that the radiator must have went bad , could that be it? -
Answer 1
YES THAT SOUNDS RIGHT. -
Answer 2
Yes, unfortunately, there is a transmission cooler in the bottom tank of the radiator that failed. This caused the transmission fluid to mix with the antifreeze and vice versa. You will need a transmission and cooling system flush and depending on how bad your Neon overheated...you may need a heat gasket replacement. -
Answer 3
I agree with both #1and #2 -
