The reason they are looking for water is that the transmission cooler is part of the radiator (unless you have by passed it) and is cooled by the cooler water returning to the engine. If it has a leak istide the radiator the you will be mixxing the two fluids. Your trans fluid should be a crisp translucent red (if it has dexron or type F fluid) and should be slippery and not smell burnt. If it is any other color or is very thin or smells burnt then you need to investigate the source of the contamination.
