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

YES THAT SOUNDS RIGHT.

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.
