the transmission cooler and radiator are integrated and can mix fluid if there's an internal radiator leak , the fluid may be mixing . Change the fluid and see if it reoccurs

Yestarday replaced the oil filter and gasket
the gear is slipping at downshift on highway
Maybe the t converter is bad because of the leak
how much will cost to replace the torque converter rad and trany flush?

It might just be slipping due to the bad fluid

how many miles on it ?

get the fluid changed and see what happens . Should be about $200-300 depending where you go

if that doesn't do it , you should get a new radiator and a good used transmission . Maybe $200 for radiator and $500 for trasmisdion. Plus installation costs
