Question about 2000 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

1999 Continental Shudder when shifting into third gear.

This shudder will occurr when the engine is lugged between 30 to 70 miles per hour. I have had it about 4 shops and the dealer thinks it
is the tranny lock out and replaced the fluid and put in an additive thinking that would help. I need help.

It will be one of 2 things. It is either the lock up torque converter or a coil pack miss-fire.
You can tell if it is the lock up torque converter by lightly applying brakes with your other foot during the concern. If it goes away then it is the lock up torque converter. If it hasn't been doing this for to long then servicing it and putting an additive in it usually corrects it. However it takes about 75 to 100 miles to do so. If that doesn't cure it you will have to replace the torque converter and depending on how it looks maybe the stator support and the TCC solenoid.
If it is a miss fire then it will probably show up under mode 6 data on a scan tool and replacing that spark plug and coil pack should remedy that.

2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport extreme shudder at 40 mph- if I press the gas-pedal and get the RPMs to rev, the shudder ceases, only to return once I am back down around 38 mph-41mph.


which engine the 3.6? v6?
that shudder is called MISFIRE.
get a tune up yet, even $1.49 spark plugs?
no its not the trans,
if it dont slip, its not trans, (see RPM races? that is slip or too low gear)
if it shifting to the right gears, its not the trans can you count them?
is the CEL lamp glowing or flashing driving, is yes, that means
scan me now. in fact scanning while it shudders, is like (magic)
why start guessing, do a tuneup,
then scan it.
if its is misfire the PCM will tell you what cylinder misfires.

are your spark plugs 6 years old, if yes, why?
going for 200k miles on them.?

2007 HONDA ACCORD SECOND GEAR SHUDDER


Well, you did a really good job of describing the symptoms, but you didn't do so well describing the car. Are we talking about an automatic or standard transmission? are we talking about a four or six cylinder engine? You are asking about a drivetrain problem without giving any information about what drivetrain the vehicle is equipped with.

With all that said, IF we are talking about an automatic transmission being pushed by a V-6 engine, then there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that matches the symptoms you are describing. In this case, the problem is most likely being caused by a deformed or damaged exhaust pipe "A" mounting bracket.

Inspect the rubber bracket for cracks or torn rubber. If the bracket is damaged replace the bracket. Bend the stud on the exhaust pipe if necessary to get the stud to go through the bracket as straight as possible so the stud does not "ground" against the sides of the bracket. (see diagram)

I have a 95 Mitsubishi Mirage, 1.8, manual transmission, distributor driven. 179k miles. Just started today, shudder after shifting in all gears, levels out after a moment, but seems to shudder stil


I would be checking the engine mounts as the shudder is when the engine is bouncing around under load
it it has a cable operated clutch, the problem could be that as the engine is allowed to move , it is affecting the operation of the pressure plate
it may be true that the distributor may have a problem but in this case , not electrical
distributor problems are limited ,to starting, missing, irregular timing but not what you describe

My 2007 veracruz has a shudder when starting in 1st gear and when shifting into second. Also have a pulsating in 5th and 6th gear at 1400/1500 rpm.Seems like the car is lugging in 5th/6th gear. Could this...


Mine had a *bad*, but intermitent engine shudder (like it was running out of gas) between 30 and 40 mph. After 3 trips to the dealer, it finally did it in front of them. It's quite dramatic, so they admitted that I wasn't just bringing it in for fun and started guessing what was wrong. They found a TSB that recommended starting with one of the O2 sensors, which fixed it perfectly, immediately.

Sounds like yours isn't your engine - but I thought I should say something just in case.

Would a P0742 TCC open code cuase no engagement in


The car most likely needs a new TCC solenoid. These were a common failure in G.M. cars causing the symptoms you were describing. Other symptoms may include: shudder or stalling at stops, car lugging on acceleration, harsh shifts, etc. Car may feel like stuck in second gear on stopping and taking off from stop. I hope this helps.
