Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds plausible that if the dipstick housing is broken, has a crack or hole that fluid could come out and drip on the exhaust manifold causing smoke. This works similarly to an oil dipstick, if you check the fluid cold and notice where the oil is on the dipstick then start the vehicle and shut if off and check the fluid again the oil will be higher on the dipstick (pressure).
I hope this helps!

Sounds like it could possibly be a vaccume problem, the computer sees that the vaccume has a low pressure and thus fludding the engine, or visa versa, it's seeing too high of a pressure and cutting the fuel comsumption to a minumum enough to make the engine sputter and die.. Does this happen when the cars in Netural or Reverse or Park? Just Drive?

If you have never done this before,it may be best to take the truck to a shop or have some one with experience help you. You will need the truck up far enough to take out the transmission. The linkage and drive shaft has to be removed,then unbolt the transmission from the bell housing.Special tools may be needed to pull and replace the seal.
Transmission fluid needs to be changed since it is a brownish color.
