    no loss of coolant, no water in oil, water temp. still between hot and cold. no change in engine smoothness. and rpm remains at required operation setting.

    Not an external leak. An internal separation letting the oil seep into the coolant lines running through the oil cooler. Just a thought. Need to inspect to be sure of location.

    Sounds like the oil cooler from the transmission or engine let go. You will need to replace the radiator and flush the engine or transmission and cooling system. GL
