Question about 2007 Acura RDX
Ok so I was driving home and suddenly my car wouldn't accelerate and then I stopped to see and I opened the hood and checked there was transmission oil in my radiator reservoir. its a 2007 acura rdx
Transmission fluid runs through a radiator to cool it. You prabably have a leak on teh inside of the radiator. Better get to you local Acura dealer ASAP

Check the oil, is the oil milky on the dipstick?
Check the Transmission Fliud level, Low?
If it is engine oil it could be a head gasket, if it is transmission oil then the cooling lines in the lower tank of the radiator may be leaking.

your fan is the problem...it's not turning fast enough to cool the engine off. I need more info on what type of fan you have....elec fan or a clutch fan?

I doubt they did anymore damage but i`ll bet that the engine was damaged from the training going out such as valve guides and seals and carbon build up on plugs ETC.

From your description of symtoms it sounds like you have a bad water pump. If the coolant is not circulating properly you will have a heating problem. Sometimes even a new thermostat can stick and cause the engine to overheat. I have seen them fail in as little as a week after they were installed.

has the timing belt been verified OK. that would be the first thing to check. the oil would not make a difference, was the oil level really 1 qt over full, and did they charge you for 5 qts? if so I would want to talk to the service manger. the dealer, of all places ,should know how much oil their cars hold!. A lot of places charge for a flat fee for oil changes but will only fill it to the full mark. ( they arent ripping you off, just trying to make it easy so all oil changes are the same price)
