I think you might be on to something. This may explain why it is only appearing after being driven. Assuming the shift modulator is only pressurized when being driven. I just replaced mine before pine mountain.

The vent on my 84 is just a small metal cap type. It is on the top of the trans in the middle. Mine actually spewed transmission fluid out the dipstick tube when I accidentally overfilled it, do not think any came out of the vent.

The modulator is tee'd into the throttle pedal air, so it only sees air when you're on the gas. I replaced mine last spring because I noticed it hissing when I was changing the throttle valve and testing it.

I thought mine had a hose on it, but maybe someone added that. In any case it's in the same spot and could be plugged up. They will puke from there if overfilled and you drive it.

I'm at the mercy of the guys at the Allison shop now. They have promised they'll call before doing anything, so I hope they will.

In all fairness, this transmission did get hot when the line to the cooler broke. I hope it's nothing too serious, but I still think this could be the result of the heat.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I am headed out of town and don't expect to hear from them for a day or so.
