I think he means the air vent is plugged. The air vent is located near the top of the trans case and it has a cap on it. The vent can be removed with a wrench and soaked in solvent and blow out with compressed air. Then re-install the vent and it should be okay.

Either clogged filter/screen or plugged vent can cause this.

Does this happen just after start or is it more or less continuous?
