I had this problem once. The fluid foamed out of the reservoir when
the pump was going fast, like high speed driving (over 100 mpg) for
more than a few minutes (don't forget I'm in Europe, speed limits in
Germany etc. etc.). The pump had cavitation problems. I replaced the
pump, and the problem disappeared.
