Water may leak into the transmission from the dipstick tube, causing fluid contamination and a shudder during light acceleration. New seals for the dipstick tube are available; the transmission fluid should be flushed as well. If the problem lingers, a new torque converter may be needed.

Apparently water got into my tranny from dip tube causing loss of power during driving and fluid shot out of vent causing some smoke.

I took it to a shop where they supposedly fixed the problem but a week later the same problem occured.
