Strawberry milkshake!

What do you guys think. I bought a truck with the head ripped off it and rusted up. I get a junkyard motor in it and everything seemed to be ok. It runs good. Drive around the block fine. Then while it was idling pepto starts prying out of the transmission overflow. I'm guessing maybe a bad radiator? What do you guys think?

Had that happen on my old 4runner. Tranny cooler broke inside the radiater and sucked the coolant into the trans. I only drove it like that for a couple miles till I saw the temp light. I had the tranny flushed at the dealer but it only lasted a few hundred miles after that.

Sounds like you got water in your transmission fluid. Not a good thing at all.

Happened on a 5r110 the other day on one of these forums ,, I thought it was the end but
and the Resident Ford Transmission Engineer (MK) wasn't to freaked .. He stated replace the cooler and refill the trans then should be OK

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

Yeah, I'm sure its water. But thwarts the only thing I can wrap my head around as to how it got in there. Any other ideas? Also should I look for something else? The heads were checked and milled flat. New oem headgaskets. Could this sob be pressurizing the radiator and versal the tranny cooler?

the radiator probably has more psi than the trans so any pin hole and coolant would be forced in but not vice versa (guess)


agreed I would want a flush to get the torque converter fluid clean as well

It was my truck that had the trans cooler inside the radiator bust! I only had trans fluid go into the radiator. I didn't have any antifreeze go into the trans.

If you think about it the coolant system can only go up to 16 psi of pressure, and they usually don't run that unless you have blowed headgaskets.

Mine never would make a milkshake! The trans fluid always stayed separated even if I shook the jar that I had collected for a sample. Then the trans fluid would settle on top of the antifreeze.

Your mix sound more like water to me!
