02 neon while driving 1 day the trans started slipping in 1st gear. Pulled over and checked the fluid and it was empty.
Put 2 quarts in and started the car and immediate noticed transmission fluid was overflowing out of the radiator reservoir.
1. can I temporarily bypass the radiator tranny cooler by connecting the 2 lines together to make sure the trans isn’t damaged? If so how hard are the lines to get to and are there any special tools required?
2. If the transmission is ok could I use an aftermarket transmission cooler instead of replacing the whole radiator and then have both the cooling system and transmission fluid flushed and refilled?
