The milkshake syndrome

Everybody talks about the strawberry milk syndrome. But what about if it's chocolate milk looking?

Chocolate milkshake is often engine oil and water/anti freeze.
Where do you notice the milkshake?

pink milkshake = red trans fluid + toyota red coolant
chocolate milkshake = old trans fluid + normal green coolant

Both are bad...

nothing wrong with using green coolant. before the advent of the red/pink coolant, Toyota was using green coolant.
it's just that the red/pink coolant has a longer life than the green coolant so you don't need to change coolant as often.

You can attach them in a message. Look for the paperclip.

I thought there was an acidity or chemical difference too

yes, there are chemical differences (i forgot what) and it becomes acidic when it goes beyond the recommended change period of 5 years.
but as i understand it, the main intent was to use a coolant that lasts longer.


Also, to the OP, don't mix red and green coolants. that's very bad. flush the cooling system, including the heaters, before changing coolant

Truly appreciated feedback fellas. I seen somewhere in the replies someone had asked "where" was this noticed at. Well when I checked the coolant res and noticing that it was empty, I looked at the rubber tube that goes inside the container of the res and seen the bottom opening of the thin tubing and it looked like a chocolate shake than a strawberry.

Then checked the trans stick and it showed regular tran fluid. Clear and red tinted like it was just newly poured.
The next day after the tow checked the trans level and clarity and boom, milk shake.

Everyone yesterday I had put a total of 28qts of ATF to cleanse the trans and it looks like a dart, dingy pink or light red. But no clarity at all. So how many quarts did those who had the milkshake issues before it became clear? Thanks in advance

did you replace the radiator before flushing the transmission? the milkshake occurs because the stock atf cooler in the radiator has rusted through, thereby allowing coolant to mix with the atf.so if you didn't replace the radiator, or bypass the stock atf cooler with an external atf cooler, then milkshake will happen again.
