I'm not sure what's wrong
but I blew the tranny pan gasket
and I mean catastrophic gasket failure, there are pieces hanging off the side of the pan
I'm not sure what caused this but I believe I have a coolant circulating problem STILL
I changed out the thermostat and with the radiator cap off and the truck running it does not appear to be flowing well, if at all
the fan is turning and the truck seems to run good with no mysterious noises
I was told by a NAPA guy that if I blew a head gasket it would prevent the coolant from circulating
If I'm not mistaken, then I would have coolant mixed in with my oil, I checked the dipstick and no evidence of that
Also wouldn't the truck run like garbage then?
I bought a new pan gasket and filter but I don't want to waste my time to fix it and it happens again because of some other problem.
somebody help me please!

Thanks,
Ryan

Sounds like you need a new radiator. The radiator can stop coolant circulation as well as tranny fluid circulation, causing both your problems.
