The transmission shop that rebuilt my 300SDL tranny told me my problem with flaring while cold was a modulator issue. He said that at cold, the seals were leaking and when the trans is hot, it seals fine and the shifts are normal.

Now, do I need to replace the modulator, or just the seal?

Am I going to have to drop the tranny to replace this?
