Low fluid level could be one cause, more likely condensate from extreme temperature conditions or a missing dipstick. AUTOMATIC Transmission Fluid WILL LOOK FOAMY IF CHECKED WHEN WARM. THIS IS NORMAL. YOU SHOULD HAVE A QUALIFIED TECH INSP/CHANGE THE FLUID IF IT HAS NOT BEEN DONE IN THE LAST 30K MILES ANSWER Some oil additives have been known to 'foam'. So if you added an additive to your tranny that could also be a cause. ANSWER Sure there is not some water into the trensmission?. Get qualified help to inspect.
I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe as well. Like many cars, the automatic transmission fluid is poured directly into the same tube the transmission dipstick is located. The transmission dipstick has a red locking grip with the words 'TRANS/LOCK ->' imprinted on the handle. Do not confuse with the engine oil dipstick which has a yellow grab ring. The transmission dipstick has two ranges - one for cold transmission fluid levels, the other for hot transmission fluid levels. Please refer to page 6-25 of your user manual for specifics about this. Suffice it to say, the manual suggests only adding transmission fluid after checking the hot transmission fluid level where it is found to be low. The cold transmission fluid range is for reference only and is not trustworthy. If adding transmission fluid, be sure to use fluid labeled as Dexron III - any other type may cause permanent damage to the transmission.
