The only path I can think of would be through the radiator. You would need to have a transmission fluid leak into the radiator and then a head gasket leak that leaked the contaminated coolant into the engine. Do you have white smoke coming from the exhaust?

The likely scenario would be for some goof to put transmission oil into the engine accidentally.

THE OIL COOLER DOES NOT GO IN RADIATOR. NO WHITE SMOKE OR COOLANT IN ENGINE.

Well you ruled out any way but my second post. Why do you think trans oil is in your engine?
