Whatever smell or fumes you're getting from your vents has nothing to do with the transmission being replaced unless the mechanic who did the job broke or didn't properly replace some piece of the exhaust that they removed. You definitely have an exhaust leak and it's rising up from the leak, into the engine bay and getting sucked into the system through the vents between the hood and windshield. Exhaust leaks contain a lot of carbon monoxide which is dangerous even at low levels so don't continue to drive the vehicle until you find and fix the leak. There are several places you could have a leak starting from the exhaust manifold to the end of the tailpipe that could potentially get sucked into the vehicles HVAC system. Start by checking from gasket between head and exhaust manifold, the exhaust manifold down to the catalytic convertor, then from the cat to whatever connections are behind it (flex pipe, muffler, and tailpipe). Check the gaskets in between those connections and that nothing is loose, rusted, or broken. The leak in your situation is *more than likely* going to be towards the front of the vehicle somewhere in front of the firewall so check extra carefully there. You also have an egr system (exhaust gas recirculation) which could leak exhaust directly into the engine compartment. When trying to locate the source of the leak, do it with the engine cold (not having been driven or on recently). You can look and listen for signs of an exhaust leak which could include a build up of soot somewhere or a "ticking" type sound near the manifold. My favorite way of finding an exhaust leak if I don't see or hear any indicators is to take a piece of paper and hover it around all the exhaust areas with the engine on; it will "puff" or, in other words, move with exhaust pulses if held directly above or next to a leak. Exhaust components get extremely hot so be careful not to touch anything. If you can't find the leak, make a service call to somewhere near by and drive it *one last time* to wherever you find a mechanic to specifically look for an exhaust leak. A lot of places, especially smog centers, have emissions wands that are helpful in finding leaks.
