Default Water pump started making noise, then transmission leaked majorly...connection?


So my water pump (2007 Toyota Corolla) started making a gravely noise. Bought
new water pump on my way home, and it seems as if the transmission just blew
up. Started leaking very badly, and not from the pan but somewhere I cannot
seem to visually see without removing components. Is there a connection
between these two components and am I majorly screwed? Thanks for
replying/whatever info is available.

Perhaps your auto transmission cooler in your radiator sprang a leak and
radiator coolant got into your transmission. The high pressure coolant in
your radiator was greater than the transmission oil pressure in the coolant
lines so the water entered the trans. The water pump noise was it turning
when dry. Did your car overheat or perhaps it did not get a chance if you
shut if off fairly soon after the noise. Check to see if your transmission
fluid level is overflowing. Could spell doom for your transmission. I
think clutch adhesive is soluble in water not to mention that the
lubrication properties of water are poor.

They should be completely separate coils with no connectiona at all
between them. In the scenario you suggest, that would be a total
catastrophic failure of the radiator, and a lot more things would be
happening like a blown head gasket, etc.

It could be there was a lot of blocakge in BOTH coils of the raditor,
perhaps for some related reason and the pressure just built until
something blew.

I would certainly have both coils in the radiator checked for flow and
pressure.
