SOURCE: lock up converter shudder ? when I apply reverse and 1st

If you can find the lead that operates the lockup solenoid in the transmission, you could cut it, but I would not recommend that. Likely the converter has an internal failure. Further operation can cause more fine metal (from broken part) contamination to circulate into transmission and damage can be costly!!!

SOURCE: car shudders at low speed when turning

This sounds like there is something worn in the steering. If it is a rack & Pinion steering the rack could be worn out. It could also be the CV joints to the front hubs. Regardless it does not sound safe. Take it to an independent mechanic, NOT THE DEALER, and have it inspected. There typically is not charge to inspect/identify the problem.

See if you can hear your fuel pump go on when you first turn your key if not replace it. It should have a humming noise when you first turn your key.

Torke converter needs to be replaced. Before you do that check the mounts.

Shudder could be the lockup torque converter if it is an automatic transmission. Another one would be the drive axles. Check the CV joints and u-joint in the drivetrain. If the shudder comes and goes with load changes, it could be either. However, to tell if it is the torque converter, watch the tachometer when the shudder occurs. If the RPM rises slightly, then drops off as the shudder stops, it is the torque converter. There is an additive for this issue that can be purchased an any parts store, called shudder-ease. Hope this helps you.

Transmission shudder on 1997 Mercury Gran Marquis


When you get a shutter- drag the brake pedal lightly-
that will turn off the torque converter clutch if the solenoid
is working

The rpm should go up with any brake pedal application-
if the converter is releasing

If you determine the torque converter clutch is bad & the
shutter,then the trans has to come out

Check engine & trans mounts also for wear

Shuddering at idle in a 2002 mercury cougar


1st to second sounds like a forced shift i would check the 1-2 shift solenoid inside the transmission and make sure the speed sensors are all in good working order, clean and apply electro grease to plugs on the transmission , as for the idle problem it could be many things from sensors for the engine to a torque converter lockup solenoid need more info is the check engine light on? you said it shudders is it missing or has a surging idle ( high and low) does it die when it goes low idle or stay running

04 ram 1500 2wd. trans shudder at cruising speeds under 55? Doesn't during acceleration. Change filter and fluid to no avail.


That sounds like a torque converter problem more than likely. It sounds like it's trying to lock up (supposed to do that above 60mph) at a low speed. It will feel like a harsh shift or a shudder when it's trying to engage. Just to make sure I'm correct, drive it and listen to all the gears. When at 55-60mph after it has gone into it's top gear it will normally drop about 200-300rpm when the torque converter locks up.

Torque convertor shudder going uphill in my 1992 Dodge Caravan, A604-transmission.


A TC shudder on a 604 is the first sign of the end. You may can get away with putting a torque converter in it , if you do it soon ( tomorrow).If it shudders going up hill it is most likely not the converter since the clutch is released under load. I would suspect and engine miss first.I am constantly dealing with vehicles that someone has diagnosed as a converter shudder and turns out to be something else , most the time just a bad coil or set of plug wires.

Transmission shudders between 40-48 mph


Torque converter clutch not engaging properly.
I recommend taking the vehicle to a transmission shop This way they can determine whats causing the converter clutch to shudder and sometimes if the repair is electricalits not so bad ($). But other times its a rebuild($$$$). Good luck

For my '01, v6, galant: what kind of transmission filter and fluid does my car use/need. Please help.....


Use only Genuine Mitsubishi Car Care Products Diamond ATF SP III to avoid Torque Converter Shudder and failure. I learned the hard way. My local repair shop, a NAPA repair shop, used Ultralube Transtex ATF Premium Dexron III/Mercon Performance. This fluid caused violent Torque Converter Shudder which if not immediately flushed out could have led to failure. After flushing and replacing with Diamond ATF SP III, the Shudder is eliminated.
