Default Radiator leak

I have to replace rad in my 2006 3.8 with factory tow... question is... is there really a seperate tranny cooler on this thing along with oversize radiator or what? I can see the tran lines running up and under rad but can't follow where they end up... also.. when i buy new rad should i be looking for a heavy duty or are all the same ? i seem to be getting leaks of both tran oil and coolant in that corner... is this fairly common ? thanks alot

Always good to have other opinion as I called friend of mine who runs local sheriff garage... he says pretty sure trans lines on this van with factory tow run into side of A/C condenser, NOT the radiator... never heard of this but pulled top plastic grill cover off and sure enough... lines run into condenser ! Thanks also to others on the forum also who confirmed this for me... I now know there is no danger of tranny fluid mixin with my coolant and all the radiators on the 3.8 are the same size.... I do, tho, have both leaking... one in corner of rad, the other in the line...
