My 2008 G35 Radiator failed

I don’t know if anyone else has had this issue, but it was horrible. I just wanted to share my experience with this and hope it does not happen to anyone else. (sorry about my grammar if it is bad.)

My 2008 g35 currently has 187k miles. Around 186k I put new tires on and the car was driving fine. Later that day I was driving, and I heard a noise like I was running over road strips and felt like it as well. Like when you run over the bumps on the side of the hwy and it was only in the rear of the car. It would go on for about 2 seconds. I was like woah what was going on. So, I got home and swapped the wheels to the front to back. The next day I was driving to work, and I heard the same thing coming from the rear again. So after work I drove back home and it was happening more often. Then my car also started to slip when trying to shift. Then I was like oh crap lol. Then I popped open the hood and looked around and I found that there was transmission fluid inside of coolant reservoir…… So long story short. I took it to the mechanic and the radiator had failed internally causing coolant to leak into my transmission causing my perfectly running car to fail me for once… I ended up having to get a new radiator and transmission. A radiator from infinity was $612 and value radiator was $499. I should have waited to find a manual lol.. Pics coming soon.
