I'm very sorry for your experience. I'm not sure what to say other than I can't explain the coolant lines to the transmission not being reconnected properly. The procedure in both of the service publications that we use indicate that disconnecting the transmission cooling lines is not part of replacing the radiator. I didn't believe it myself when first told because most radiators that I've seen with an automatic transmission have cooling lines running to them but in your case apparently the lines go to a separate oil cooler. The reason we told you that we couldn't do anything when you first came back with a problem is; #1) the problem wasn't showing itself. The car apparently was running and shifting fine and there were no signs of any fluid leaks. #2) There were trouble codes stored in the computers memory relating to the transmission. Your car doesn't have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid. As strange as it sounds, it has to be check with a special scan tool at the dealership. I've got to think that if the dealership felt there was some sort of issue they would've advised you not to drive the car. In the meantime I've got Roger trying to do some research to try and find out exactly what happened. He's been trying to reach you to find out the name of the place where you traded your car.
