transmission Fluid turns milky/strawberry

i have found out that my transmission fluid is milky/strawberry . i have 2005 Chrysler 300 touring 3.5L . i called chrysler service and they said my fluid is probably mixed with water. first of all , im wondering how did the water got in there since 2005 chrysler 300 touring 3.5l gear box have no link with the water tank. 2 pipes connects the air condition condenser to gear box but not water tank. i have carefully checked and there is no connection between the water system and the gear box oil. the gear box is link to the air condition condenser (upper part) so that oil cools of and go bank to the gear box...... pls does anyone have an idea?

Yes, if the dipstick tube is loose water can work it's way in from there.

Also, a crack in the case would cause that condition but you would definitely see a leak.

Is the transmission dipstick tube covered?

There is a rubber seal around the tyranny sip stick, sometime with just the age & miles/km of the vehicle the dry up & crack. Usually as simple as replace that seal/gasket, flush the tyranny & you should be good to go. I hope that helps ya.

The A/C does not cool the tranny, the radiator does.

That being said, condensation from the A/C reportedly did enter the tranny at the dipstick joint.

Too funny, obviously I didn't proof read that comment ! Next time I will have a second look, but I think the general message was understood & of possible help. Thanks for the laugh.
