Transmission fluid in coolant!
Well, I pulled into the gas station with the wife yesterday and saw coolant running out from under the truck. I was sick just from that sight, after studs, gaskets, deletes, oil cooler and injectors(twice).
I got home and took the cap off and it spewed everywhere and you could tell it was oily. I first thought oil cooler but since it was not milky, I quickly guessed I had a cracked head.
I have been sick for the past day and night. My mechanic buddy came and looked at it. I told him it just seemed to thick to be diesel. But with the ELC coolant it was all red.
Well he asked had I checked my tranny fluid. Sure enough wasnt even touching the dipstick. He says that the trans cooler in the radiator probably ruptured.
Anybody else ever saw this? Maybe not to hard of a fix, but dang sure a mess.
