Default Fluid for auto trans oil cooler

I need to replace my radiator in my '01 Cruiser Touring, non-turbo, and was wondering if it is just regular coolant that runs through the transmission oil cooler, or if it is some other fluid. Thanks for the help!!

It's the regular coolant that runs through the engine and the radiator but saying that, it's not quite regular. Chrysler only recommends coolant that has HOAT properties. It's a special rust inhibitor so look on the label on anything you pick but make sure it says HOAT on it. There's a few different brands that have the HOAT properties such as Zerex and supposedly they be picked up at NAPA and other auto stores.
