Question Radiator coolant leaking into transmission

I have a 1990 Acura Integra
The transmission runs great
I have been losing coolant for about 2 months about every week my radiator and holding tank are empty
I discovered it was not leaking under my car
So I then realized my transmission fluid was leaking slowy... and when I checked the fluid level it was way over full and contained water and coolant in it....

My question is do I need a new radiator or transmission???? Or both?
My transmission is great so if I replaced the radiator and had my transmission drained.... would this leak stop?

Yes, the radiator is the source of your problem. As far as the transmission, you may or may not have done damage. Your going to have to do more than just drain it. That will only get about a third of the total oil. Have it flushed completely will a flush machine. If the trans acts OK and has no problems, do it again after 500 miles. You should be OK after that.
