I assume you mean the tranny fluid is mixing with the coolant, so you have some options, you can either replace the radiator and then flush the cooling system, or you can bypass the radiator transmission cooler and plug the holes where the lines went in the radiator and install an external transmission cooler and then flush the cooling system It will be slightly cheaper to go with the aux cooler, but no matter what way you go it will still have to be flushed.
