Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had my tranny in my 03 automatic forester replaced about 6 mos ago. Recently the A/T temp light started flashing and now it seems to be accompanied by a grinding sound while driving. When I looked under the hood there also appears to be a big leak in the radiator. I am on a limited income so trying to pin point which is the most pressing repair. I check all my fluids regularly A/T fluid, Oil, coolant and they are all at appropriate levels so I'm a bit stumped. Any help is appreciated.

Did you install a used transmission? Do you have a warranty on the new transmission? Clearly you need to repair or replace your radiator immediately.
