First,fix the radiator,the tranny line,s run in to it to keep the tranny cool,the radiator is damaged and letting trans fluid in to it,after you fix it,if truck has no skip at that time or now,then check the water pump,and thermostat.

Put new radiator in or have the one you have fixed,then if car is running hot,still,change the water pump,and thermostat.First thing i would like to know before you spend your money,is the truck running ok,meaning no skipping?

Fix what i said above,should fix the problem,


After that then,flush the transmission a few times with new fluid. If enough coolant/water got into the trans, the clutches will delaminate and your trans will never shift right. Possible rebuild is in your future.
