Is my head gasket blown? If so, what are my options?
Recently I had my Lower Intake Manifold Gaskets replaced and since then the
only problem I've had is low Transmission Fluid. However, when I got under the
hood to check out my Transmission Fluid I also checked all my other Fluids
and noticed a white foam in my Radiator. I didn't think anything of it and
continued to drive it for about a week when I noticed my Temperature Gauge
would go all the way into the red then come back down and stay at about the
middle. The second time this happened I pulled over and checked the
Overflow Tank for my Radiator and noticed the same white foam pictured.
What could be causing this and what are my options?
Is it more like a pink milkshake? The transmission fluid could be migrating to your radiator via a damaged trans cooler in your radiator. So time for a new radiator. Most times the coolant mixes with the transmission fluid and destroying the clutches in the transmission. Sounds like it didn't migrate back to the trans. You might be lucky.
