I just received word from a friend that if your transmission modulator diaphram goes bad, that it could make the intake suck ATF into it causing bluish-white smoke. Does that make sense? If so is it hard to replace a trani-modual? I am not losing any engine oil at all, but I am losing trani fluid.

Today I will be taking it to the smog shop to diagnose the engine.

Thanks.

Ez to change, gust remove & replace. Don't need to drain tr/f. When you pull vac. hose off you will get some fulid, but it is coming from vac. hose to int. man. not tran.

be careful when you remove valve there is a small pin which is easy to lose. meke sure it is in place when you install valve.

Re: A mist of Bluish white-smoke II /Possible tr

i have the same problem. i have the a shop manual that came with the car in 81.my car shifts from 1st - 2nd kind hard and the book said that along with sucking atf throught the vaccum lines causing the smoke that it can also cause a sharp shift from 1st -2nd. could all this be because of a bad diaphram? i was wondering if any of you knew this to be true.

Yes, I beleive it's possible because you will be losing ATF. Therefore, causing your gears to slip. Yeah, it's possible, lack of fluid.
