Transmission cooling

Asked by Feb 12, 2015 at 07:33 AM about the 2005 Dodge Magnum SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05 Magnum 3.5 with 42RLE trans. It shifts hard at times and shudders a lot
now. I am looking for insight on it. The fluid had water in it looks like strawberry milk. i
read somewhere that there was a problem with the radiator getting  a hole in between
the water wall and trans cooler wall causing water to get in. I am trying to find out if its
true. If that's the case I been looking for a radiator to replace it and the ones I see
don't have trans cooler on them. Can anyone keep a hand?

Are you sure coolant is in the fluid? Is it foamy? If so, you might just have too much fluid and or the transmission was overfilled with fluid. Drain some to the proper level.

It's over filled with something oyher then
