Default 1997 Honda accord 4 speed automatic help?!?

Ok so i saw my radiator and it has a milky substance in it, i checked the motor oil and thats fine but then i checked the transmission oil and it has the same substance thats in the radiator, what would be the first step to fixing it and what would i need and how much would it cost? the car is still driveable but i feel the transmission difference.

The transmission has cooling tubes that run through the radiator. one of those is leaking and transmission fluid is being mixed in the radiator and the transmission. Replacing the radiator Will stop the leaking, but the transmission is already damaged. You may have to rebuild or replace the transmission also.

replace the radiator and flush the transmission...radiator can cost about $150 to $200 dollars...tans flush is about $200...and pray to the honda gods and ask for forgiveness...coolant will cause all the clutches to fail...the transmission flush might buy you some time...good luck
