Default Transmission fluid in anti freeze

I have a 2002 Yukon had my motor replace 3 weeks ago. I went on a road
trip I was 120 mile away from home and I noticed that I had
transmission fluid leaking. I looked to see where it was coming from it
looked like it was coming from the front drive shaft. I used 3 gallons
of transmission fluid to get home. I took it the dealership that
replaced the motor and they told me that the transmission cooler had
went bad which caused the antifreeze to get into the transmission
fluid. Which thin the transmission fluid cause it to escape threw the
gasket on the transmission. I had no lose of antifreeze but I used
three gallons of transmission fluid. How do you explain?

Well, its normal to cool transmission fluid by running it thru some pipes in
the radiator. If there was a trans-pipe rupture in the radiator coolant,
then I 'd expect a lot of preesurised coolant to get into the transmission
oil. That didnt happen as far as I can deduce from what you've said.
Sounds like the drive-shaft was re-installed during the motor replacement in
a sloppy fashion which tore the lips of the drive-shaft seal,..hence the
leak. Tell them if there was no coolant in the trans-oil then the cooling
pipes must have been OK and they stuffed the seal during re-assembly- motor
R&Replace.
