It could be and inspect your transmission fluid and have it serviced if it is the transmission fluid and also your engine oil. Engine coolant is corrosive to the bearings in your transmission and engine and can cause you to loose which ever you have cross contamination with.
If it's transmission fluid, then you'll loose your transmission is not corrected and if it's engine oil. Then your going to loose the engine shortly if not corrected.
Sorry for the bad news and thank you for using fixya.

Ok,I have a 2002Firebird 3.8 seriesII, V6 coolant/water is coming up from radiator with cap off.


When you change antifreeze an air pocket is created in engine behind thermostat. You must let it run until the thermostat opens. Until then, liquid will boil backfkowing through bottom of radiator.
As for milky look, blown headgasket would cause white foam that if left alone wouldclear up. Otherwise it could be an additive in the fluid such as rust preventative.

Does the trans cooler exist inside the radiator on this V6 engine/auto trans combo? I found a brown foam in my 2001 Saturn V6's coolant overflow tank. It was so thick, i could not read the coolant level. ...


hmmm..........there is a OiL COOLER tube for the transmission cooler in ur radiator, that to keep ur tranny fluid to cool down!

As u said, u checked the engine oil, and it has no decrease on oil level!

Ur right about that... better bring that to ur mechanic and evaluate the radiator, the tube inside might have been damage or corroded!

Hope the seals up ur probs!

2002 saturn vue checking transmission fluid


Absolutely if it is an automatic transmission. You do need to use the right type for your product. If you do not change oil yourself, the lube shop should check the trans with each oil change while they do the rest of the work.

Changing the transmission fluid yourself


On the 2006 Saturn Vue FWD 2.2L there is both an oil plug and a transmission fluid plug. From under your car you will see closer to the middle a wide "L" shaped flat surface, that is for your transmission fluid. There is a plug/bolt on the side of it to drain it. It will drain very slowly so give yourself plenty of time and make sure you have a wide pan to collect because it doesnt stream out, it dribbles and drips all over.
For the oil look for a flat square closer to the front than the transmission fluid pan. You will see a large bolt towards the back on the side of the oil pan. This is where you drain your oil.
For Radiator fluid there is a plug on back side towards the bottom of the radiator itself. If you are unsure where your radiator is... you might want to leave all this to a professional.

Adding Transmission Fluid


Get a funnel and pour in the transmission fluid where the transmission oil dipstick is. The plastic container with the yellow cap is probably your radiator fluid (engine coolant)
