Milky, means water have mixed w/ ur transmission fluid! There must be some leak during the cooling process in the oil cooling system! It goes through the main engine radiator, there must be some holes that water seeps through the transmission tube! Go to ur nearest garage to check on it before the damage in ur transmission could get big!
Tahh!

I have 2005 mitsubishi galant v6 transmission stopped working while driving every gear is like im in neutral. Transmission never slipped or anything


First thing to do is check the transmission fluid level and check for leaks. If the transmission is very low on fluid, for example a cooler line broke, it would cause this situation due to no pressure. If you do not see any outside leaks, but transmission fluid is very low, check your radiator overflow tank, if it is overfull and milky, this would mean the Trans cooler that goes through the radiator is leaking fluid into the coolant system.

Why was the transmission fluid milky in color on my 97 blazer


Water mixed into trans fluid or oil will cause a milky appearance. Either there is a bad seal on the trans and you drove thru flood waters or the heat transfer pipe for the trans that is inside of the radiator has failed. Don't drive!!! Have it towed to a trans shop and have them check it out or you may be replacing the entire trans.

Powersteering milky in 02 Lincoln


Time to change the power steering fluid. Some cars use power steering fluid, while other cars use transmission fluid. Do not use the wrong fluid in your car or you will have even bigger problems.

Nissan pulsar 2002 problems


Check the quality of the transmission fluid and check the level. It might be time to change the transmission fluid and the filter. The fluid should be a reddish brown colour. Definitely should not be milky colour because this would indicate water in transmission from cracked radiator. Do this first, then if it doesn't fix it you can take it to specialist.

Hard first to second shifting could also be the 1st to 2nd shift solenoid in the transmission is playing up.

I have a 2010 hummer h3 that has a milky color in the radiator we checked all the fluids the engine oil is fine but the transmission fluid is barely touching the dipstick what could the problem be ...........


Milky colour in the radiator means that the engine has overheated and the head gasket is blown and might need replacement after skimming the cylinder head.The milky colour is oil in the engine mixing with water that cools the engine

Antifreeze has a white millky substance to it especially in coolant bottle and in hoses. Mechanic say that radiator is failing. Is this true?


Check the oil and also transmission fluid, one of them should also be milky. If it's the oil that is also milky then most likely cause is blown headgasket. If it's transmission fluid, then the radiator probably has failed in the transmission cooler section. If the transmission fluid is milky, then you also need to have the fluid flushed and the trans. filter changed after fixing the radiator.

I have oil in radiator ,transmission slips


Does the oil in the radiator look reddish? likely it does...You most likely have a failure inside the radiator where the trans cooler coil runs through it. Replace radiator and have trans fluid changed and flushed. If slipping continues trans will need a rebuild. (hope not)

Transmission fluid


Sounds like the radiator is cracked inside and leaking into the trans cooler section.
