Why did the liquid turn in my transfer box

Hello

whats likely is if the transmission is an automatic then it will be cooled with engine coolant and its possible that where the transmission pipes enter the radiator they are cracked and then allowing coolant and ATF to mix

so check the coolant header tank for signs of oil mixing and if its present then I'd consider replacing the radiator
