Tranny pucking under pressure

96 F250 7.3 Powerstroke. Pulling a 24ft trailer up hill and the transmision blows out fluid at the front of the torque converter. I let it cool down, refilled and was on my way. On my way home it did it again. It resealed itself. Any ideas for a fix?

it is leaking at the front of the torque converter. It has resealed itself but what is causing this?

A very small crack can be a very minor drip and may not be noticed but once it gets hot can open up..and leak much more..rare but has happened. But I like your idea of the vent pluged!

i talked to the guy that owns the tranny shop across from where i work and he had an 04 6.0 in that was backing up a heavy boat up a steep driveway and cooked the front seal out by overheating the converter. so i guess that is the likely cause.
