The modulator valve is connected to an engine manifold vacuum source, which enables it to regulate shift timing according to engine load. At light loads, when engine vacuum is higher, the transmission will shift sooner. The vacuum level drops as engine load increases, causing the transmission to shift later. A faulty modulator will cause incorrect shift timing, and a leaking modulator can allow transmission fluid to be sucked into the engine, creating smoke from the tailpipe. A FRAM modulator valve will restore proper transmission operation.
