    Hi there !! I am the happy owner of a 1995 940, that is not driven much as
    replacement for my retired 86 245 with over 275K miles, anyway, my wife
    complained that the car left her stranded and the transmission felt as if it
    was in neutral, engine revs, but car does not move. After shutting off the
    car for 10 or 15 minutes, restarted the card and was able to drive to her
    work. I thought it was low transmission fluid, checked the level, it was on
    the normal range, above minimum, added a quart of transmission fluid anyway
    and drove the car back home without any problems. Upon close inspection of
    the transmission fluid, it was discolored and did not smell right, the
    radiator overflow reservoir is very dirty on the inside, and I am suspecting
    cross contamination.

    How can I tell if the radiator is damaged and allowed transmission fluid and
    water to mix, ? and what does the group suggest?, I am thinking about a
    transmission flush and refill, but I want to do it after I am certain that
    the radiator is OK. The car runs fine and does not overheat or hesitates.

    Thanks
