Gear Oil Smell

Hello to all Pathfinder owners, I just joined. This is a sweet website. I am on my second Pathfinder and bought a 1996 XE 5sp recently. I had my clutch replaced and ever since once the car warms up I smell gear oil coming from the shift lever. It is especially bad when I open a window and create a vacuum effect. I have checked and have no leaks on the underbody. I changed the transmission fluid as well. I am wondering if there is some sort of seal that should be around the shifter that is missing? Or maybe a vent house off the transmission is venting into the vechile? If anyone can shed some light on this subject it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Looney
