Default trans leak? need help!!!!!!

my trans leaked enough fluid to where my car crawls in the driveway. I was looking under the car and traced it up to the top. on the top of the trans right above a wire harness. i had to remove the intake inlet to view it. this little thing sticking out had a cap on it that was loose. when i start the car this is where the fluid is comming from.

what is it?
and how do i fix it?

Can we get a picture of it? Or a better description? It sounds like the pressure relief valve to me, which is VERY uncommon. But I can't say for sure with your description.

Your valve has failed. It'* a pressure relief/breather. The cap is missing. Go to a parts store with it in your hand, explain where it was (dealer preferred) and get it replaced. A trans shop is another option. Preferably one that deals with FWD GM transmissions.

You should be fine after that. It normally only releases under pressure, but from the looks of your fluid, you don't have tranny overheating issues. Looks good and pink.

is there a tool i need to put a new cap on. or should i have a dealer do it? and does that valve come out of the trans because it spins in place and seams a little loose.

Both of mine spin too.

To be honest, I'm not sure how it'* removed or installed. Try sending a PM to Rogue with a link to this topic. He'* customer service for Intense. They rebuild trannies for us in their shop. Don't ask the question via PM. Let'* keep that posted in public. Just link him to it.

It'* crimped on. Use some pliers, squeeze it a little bit so it still spins around.
