VACUUM LEAK AT POINT OF SHIFT

1992 Ford F-150 • 128,000 miles

The engine is a 4.9 straight 6. I have a leak that sounds like a "turbo" a "shhhhwwwwsssshhhh" sound only heard when the tranny shifts while accelerating. I have replaced all visible vacuum lines which leads me to believe that it is maybe a manifold leak. I have sprayed at least a couple cans of carb cleaner under the hood to try to locate this leak also. The exhaust also smells "fume-y" like it is running rich. I have replaced all the regular maintenance parts including O2 sensor and temp sensor. Any Ideas?

I'm sending a chart and you can check if you have ppower brakes it may be your vacuum booster or a hose inside for your heater controls. If you ahve sparayed everything underhood and foun dnothing then I doubt it's there.
