I have a 1999 Buick Le Sabre that is pumping pinkish/milky colored transmission fluid out of what I assume is a pressure relief valve dealing with the transmission. What would be causing this.

Asked by Jun 21, 2015 at 10:45 AM about the 1999 Buick LeSabre Custom

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't have any dash lights that comes on indicating I have a problem.  Just afraid too drive it due too pumping the fluid out so fast.  Any help would be appreciated.

A number of things, the fluid is contaminated, the cooler is bad, excessive line pressures, internal bushing wear causing excessive heat, bad ring and pinion. I recommend that you have it towed to a tranny shop that you trust, otherwise you could totally fry the the tranny or worse yet burn the car to the ground as tranny fluid when it is hot ignites very easy.
