ZJ coolant leaking into trans

So I bought a 97 grand Cherokee LTD I6 4.0. The trans fluid was pretty bad, looked like the "strawberry milk" I see ppl talking about. So I drained it, replaced the filter and filled it back up. Also The coolant was low so I filled it up. Next day the coolant was low again but there were no signs of it leaking anywhere. Now the transmission is having trouble shifting, so I checked it and it's back to looking like a strawberry milkshake. anyone else have this problem and what did you do to fix it? This is my first jeep and first vehicle I'm working on and learning on myself.

Re: ZJ coolant leaking into trans

There is a transmission oil cooler inside the radiator, which is most probably leaking internally. You will have to replace the radiator.
