Good morning!
I have a neon 2000 and it just happen that the transmission
fluid is going to the water, i noticed like 3 weeks ago that
the cap and water had a pinky milk cream, do you know the
average of the cost to fix this issue?
Thank you!!

Transmission cooler probably leaked in the radiator. You'll have to check the transmission pan for cross contamination. If trans is fine, you could replace in-radiator trans cooler with an external one, and plug old one. Otherwise you'll have to replace the radiator. If cross contamination did occur, you'll have to have the transmission serviced, and depending on how bad it got that can be expensive. You are looking at potentially replacing the radiator and servicing the transmission.

Thank you KenF! I will double check if anything with the pan, I still have to change the reservoir water tank lol, I appreciated.

Address this right away. If the coolant gets into the transmission you won't be happy cause coolant will ruin a transmission in short order.
