I assume your refering to the vacuum modulator which controls transmission shift points. Remove the vacuum hose from the modulator. Using a small screwdriver, turn the screw inside the modulator. It may take several tries to get it right.

On some of the older vehicles the vacuum modulator controlled the shift points of the transmission by using the vacuum supplied from the engine.

as far as I understand , it does not have a modulator. e4od are electronic. no vacuum shift modulator

A vacuum modulator is used to apply pressure to the throttle valve. The modulator senses the pressure from the manifold and increases when the engine is under a heavier load.

There should be an o-ring where the modulator is inserted into the transmission. There should be no fluid where the vacuum line attaches, if so the modulator is bad.

If a vacuum modulator has fluid in the vacuum port, it has failed and should be replaced.

Jack up and support the rear of the car to minimize fluid loss. Remove vacuum hose from modulator. Remove bolt and retaining clip from under modulator. Remove modulator by pulling straight out. Install new modulator with new o-ring, replace clip and bolt and vacuum hose.

The vacuum modulator on a 300zx should be located on the rear of the engine. It is on the passenger side at the top, close to the firewall.

There is no adjustments to a 350 Turbo Transmission (GM). The only external thing that would cause shift problems is the vacuum modulator on the side. This is replaceable easily. Check for proper vacuum signal to the modulator. Make sure there are no holes and or kinks in the vacuum line from the engine to the modulator. If none is found, replace the modulator for shift complaints. If it is slipping, the tranmission will require removal and overhaul. This transmission uses wet clutch plates and automatically compensates for wear in the plates to a certain point.

Check the vacuum source to the vacuum modulator. If it's good, try a new modulator.

That transmission is electronic controlled. No need for a modulator valve.

When the vacuum from the engine sucks in transmission fluid from the bad modulator and shows up as heavy blue smoke out the exhaust.

The vacuum modulator is located on the passenger side of the transmission, just above the tranny oil pan. It has a vacuum line going to it. It actuates a valve in the tranny for upshifts.

Starting with the 1995 Ford Explorer model the transmission is ELECTRONICALLY controlled ( so there is no vacuum modulator )

Assuming you mean the modulator on an automatic transmission... The modulator help to control the timing of the changing of gears in the tansmission. The modulator uses manifold vacuum to finetune the shift point, lower vacuum means higher load, throttle is open wider, shift point will be delayed.
