Having problems with your 1998 Ford Aerostar ?
I HAVE A 95 FORD AEROSTAR AND MY PROBLEM IS THAT THE TRANSMISION FLUID IS SOME HOW GOING INTO THE MOTOR IS THAT POSSIBLE AND IF SO WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM THANK YOU FOR HELPING
It sounds like you have a leak inside your radiator, if you have an automatic transmission the fluid needs to be cooled on long trips, hard loads (towing etc) or on hot days, this is accompished the same way your engine is cooled, by running lines from the transmission then through the radiator, the air going through the rad and also the coolant from the engine cools the tranny fluid then routes the cooled fluid back to the transmission. If the lines that run through the rad have a hole in them the fluid will leak out and into the engine coolant (antifreeze) and the fluid will make it's way into the engine through the engines cooling system, the other side of this is that engine coolant is possibly making it's way to your transmission and this is an even bigger problem as the coolant does not have the lubricity properties needed by your transmission and you are soon going to have operation problems with your transmission. You need to get this fixed soon and have both the engine cooling system and the transmission flushed to remove the cross contamination.
