I hav a mercedes s350. when i drive the car shutters when it is changing gears.

It is usually a good idea to get it to a auto a mechanic if the transmissions begins shuddering, but there are some things you can check at home. If the vehicle shudders this may be a sign of low trans fluid or dirty burnt fluid.
Check the owner's manual for the location of the dipstick for the transmission pull a dipstick out and look at the fluid on the end of the dipstick if it's bright red its good if it's black or brown tis burnt you can smell it smell of burnt smell.
No idea of how many miles but if over 100k dont do a trans flush have a "trany splash" done. Flushes on high mile cars can change the fluid 100 % but not the filter. Splash changes fluid in the pan but not the torque converter. Unless there is a drain plug on converter, but a new filter will clean up the converter fluid.
Find a reputable mechanic so you dont end up with a bigger problem if its just the fluid.
Oh if when you pull the dipstick and you do do that and you see that the fluid is a little burnt or it's low always check tranny fluid when the engine is running
To get a accurate reading.

Transmission shuddering combined with transmission slippage may be a sign that too little (pluged filter) or too much fluid is making its way to the transmission. This is usually a telltale sign that the torque converter is failing.

Hope this helps a little.
Best of luck.

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?

place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

My transmission fluid turned brown. I beleive from getting hot.The bad radiator I think caused this. Should I change the fluid or leave it alone?

You are right to look at the tranny fluid as it has turned brown. This happens naturally over time and mileage. Depending on the mileage, sometimes it is not recommended to open the transmission pan to change fluid and filter. If over 100,000 miles, check with your local shop for tranny flush or fluid filter change per warranty consideration. You can add a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer to your tranny without having to drain any fluids. I have used this often on higher mileage cars with great success. The bottle costs about $11. even at your local Walmart:) Read the instructions carefully as the full bottle contents need to be added with engine running and tranny warm. Hope this helps.

Were is the location of mitsubishi mirage 2001 transmission filter????

im not sure if this model is service able for a non mechanic. but the tranny filter is located behind the tranny pan of the transmission. you will need to drain all of the transmission fluid before you take the pan off. the filter in itself is very easy to get off. it may get a little frustrating getting all of the bolts off the tranny pan. should be any where from 15 to 20 of them depending on the model. once you get the pan off, look at the new filter and judge by that on how to remove the old filter. after you get the old filter off repeat the steps of removel in the opposite order. now most tranny filters will come with a new tranny pan gasket. if it doesn't i strongly recommend buying a new one. they should not run you more than 10 to 20 bucks at any local parts store. it also would not hurt to line either side of the gasket with permtex ( i would go for the high heat red tube) line the bolt holes up and bolt the tranny pan back to the transmission. be sure not to over tighten the bolts. the tranny is only aluminum. after you have everything back together look in your owners manual to see the specific type of tranny fluid you will need and the exact amount you will need. once that is done you should be good to go
