I just need to know how the fluid gets from trans into the engine?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.
This type of problem is in most cases cause by a leaking transmission shift servo located on the passenger side of the transmission body. Get under the truck and pull the vacuum line off of it and see there is trans fluid in it. If so the servo is leaking and allowing transmission fluid to be sucked into the engine.
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.
There is no other way for the fluid to get in the engine.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No need to call how can this happen?

FRont seal needs to be replaced?
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.
The front seal will not allow fluid to enter the engine, check the shift servo (modulator) It is very likely leaking and needs to be replaced.
