Question: Automatic Transmission keeps blowing seal between engine &a/tA

I am wondering if there is a vent hose that is plugged causing pressure build up in the transmission. When the transmission was replaced was it new/rebuilt or a wrecking yard transmission (if so were the seals replaced?

It was a used transmission. Seals were new. I had this same problem with previous transmission. I am thinking it maybe the Powertrain Control Module and/or the car computer. Nothing on outside of transmisssion was pluged. I am thinking soomething is telling the transmision to do something it isn't suposed to do at the wrong time. I know for a fact that cell phone transmision has interfered with car ECM'a and also there have been claimed to cause problems with the Powertrain Control Module.But, I have no way to test.
