    stumped again

    yea i changed the engine oil and it looked ok....just dirty......but when i pulled the trans drain plug(the one behind the shifter) i instantly noticed green.... so can the coolant get into the tranny via faulty w.p. seals?

    coolant in tranny oil

    hey guys...so i've been losing coolant out of the overflow tube for some time now (more than usual). I went to change the tranny fluid and saw that it was milky green. After reading other posts I think i've got a sealing issue in the water pump. Here is where i need some opinions. Should i replace the water pump seal, oil seal, bearing and the shaft? Or just the seals? I was told that the shaft maybe worn down due to the seal malfunction. Is it better to just spend the money and do it now? Also, the left radiator is bent due to a nice biff in the dirt. No bent fins or obvious leaks that can be seen. I'm going to do it but should i replace it? could this be causing the sealing issue or excessive coolant lose? thanx for the input !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
