Update:

I have my X5 back, total for parts/labor $200.
Low because I just had him fix the leak that was coming from the 2 o-rings. He also replaced the coolant.

Sadly, he said that it appears that some trans fluid seeped into the radiator and there are a couple of other issues going on with seals in the engine needing replaced etc.
So while I consider my option of putting more money into this vehicle, or going a different direction (hard decision actually), I am just going to use this as an around the town runner.

Just do a transmission fluid/filter change and as long as your radiator hose connectors don't look like the aftermath of a porn studio after party you should be good to go for minimal cost outlay.

Drat, I should have had that shop do that. I'll look into getting that done right away.
Thank you for the advice.

Glad you got this sorted, and @200 not bad.
Fluid and air leaks are common on our old X5, some are DIY easy more than others....
