Default Tranny fluid in engine oil?

Hello all,

Does anyone know how I might be getting trans fluid into the engine oil. Engine oil is constantly increasing and tranny fluid keeps running low? Was told there may be a vacuum hose it is going through. Is that possible and if so how would I locate and fix it? Thanks

I know on my 2.8l with c3 Tranny, there is a vacuum hose between the two. From a module on the Tranny to the vacuum tree on the intake manifold. You possibly have a bad manifold gasket.

Pull the vacuum line and check it out for trans fluid. Not unheard of for the modulator to go bad and leak trans fluid right into the intake. Would be a good start, definitely keep up on oil level until you figure it out.
