Auto Trans Oil Cooler

98 Camry 4 cyl.

Trans fluid is black.

Fluid level in cold trans is above full when hot mark on stick.

Can this be result of coolant transferring from trans oil cooler at bottom of radiator into the trans oil?

A distinct possibility.

Yes, it can be. Either way, with the fluid being black, the trans is shot.
