Auto Transmission Fluid in Engine Oil

Hi All,

Had diagnosed a very small Rear Main Seal leak not so long ago.

This morning, started car, shifted into Reverse and no normal small jerky movement. Switch to Drive and same, no movement.

Turned car off and checked Auto fluid and was way low. Decided to check Engine oil and clearly see red tinge to Engine oil on dipstick.

Obviously auto fluid is now mixing in with engine oil. I am no way shape or form a mechanic but this would suggest Rear Main Seal has gone bye bye, yes?

I look forward to any help anyone is able to offer here.

It is a 1998 LC 100 Series 1FZ-FE Auto Petrol.


Thanks in Advance.

Highly unlikey. 

Do you still have red coolant or has it been changed to green?

Auto trans fluid should be check in neutral with the engine running.
