2001 1.3 Automatic sucks ATF & exhausts blue smoke

I have looked repeatedly for a modulator canister or a vacuum line that would draw ATF ultimately into the combustion chambers, but I am striking out. Does anyone have a clue for me as to what and where I should be looking to solve this ATF consumption and exhaust smoke problem? :banghead

First off...Welcome to the Fun... :greet
Sorry but there is no way for the ATF to enter the engine...there is no modulator or vacuum lines...there are only a few places they leak; hoses, TV cable, axle seals, speed sensor, oil pan...there is a possibility it's leaking into the coolant if the radiator trans cooler went bad...if your blowing smoke out the exhaust then you have to look for engine problems...Just my .02...the 1.3l 16v SOHC has issues with the valve guide seals getting hard and oil dripping into the combustion chamber... :type

Thank you for the welcome to the club. I have actually been participating in "Metro Mania" for quite some time and have recently received my 10 year pin with the little freak, so we have many less than exciting stories in our past.
I really appreciate your insight on the lack of a transmission modulator or any other vacuum attachment to the automatic transmission, which on diaphragm failure would probably cause sucking of the ATF. So fooey! I have been barking up the wrong tree and there went my easy fix.
I now know my actual mission and will set to work on the diagnosis.
Many thanks.
