First thing to check is the motor and transmission mounts. If they are worn, the motor and transmission will move when putting it into gear. You should feel this going into reverse .
If the mounts are good, make sure the fluid is full, but Not over filled.
If both of the above are not the problem, then it is possible the torque convertor is going bad or there is a clogged valve. These should be checked by a respectable mechanic.

Mazda 5 has a heavy shudder when pressing clutch pedal in

think you need a new clutch ,could be dual mass flywheel playing up or just a pressure plate fault ,My best advice is to ask a local garage to have a look .Also when driving and stopping at lights always put parking brake on ,neutral,foot off clutch and brake as this will burn stop light bulbs out quicker.Sorry but iam old and this is the way i was taught to drive .it pays dividends in the end as the thrust bearing and the fingers on the pressure do not wear out .

Fix for shudder and loss of power in transmission of 1999 lincoln towncar at appx 45 mph, transmission will shudder and sometimes start losing power. i can then pull over and take out of drive and then to...

I would have to agree that the shift lock acculater is going bad, Because if the transmission is shifting OK when it is in gear then the transmission is OK, But if you want to keep it that way you can change the trans fluid and filter and gasket, After doing that add a bottle of Prolong transmission treatment use the PROLONG TRANSMISSION ONLY itg can be bought at PEP BOYS or some other auto parts store's do not use any other type of treatment because the PROLONG is the best it treats the parts and the metal not the fluid, I put it in a ford LTD trans with over 200,000 miles on it and the trans is still working fine and now it has 278,899 miles on it.but also check the fuses and the locking system

2002 chrysler town and country shudders when braking and also when driving at certain speeds

Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, Or if it shudders on breaking it could be the disks or rotors are warped. The part where you say it feels like it's not getting enough air is an indication that the engine has a vacuum problem. How does it feel at idle? Trouble shooting is like going to the doctor, the more information the better. If the symptoms happen on cold starts, or is it random. Does it only happen when you break? If you put the gear in neutral and coast and you hit the breaks does it do the same thing? let's try and narrow it down, let me know? GE

Subaru legacy 1997 shudders when accelerating through changing gears car is automatic

if this happens while the engine is cold please run it idle once to start in the morning then drive and if it does always then. put the gear to neutral with the brakes on and push the accelerator slowly to higher side to see if engine is smooth if it shakes or shudders or engine seems to un stable use carburettor cleaner with the engine roaring say around 2000-2500 rpm. just spray from the opening intake of the air filter on top of the engine. spray two to three times, if it does not work remove the top cover of air filter remove the air filter and close the cover then try again. if it still does not help take the car to service station to check for all hydraulic oil and clutch oil. are you sure that engine oil is on top indicator or it is low. this could also be the reason and the engine could cease also.better first check for the engine oil level on the oil dipstick.usually located near the fan belts of the engine front side

Put car into low 4 wheel drive, then switched it back to auto...but the light on dash still says low 4wd. How bad a problem and can we continue to drive it local ...feels like in low 4wd?

To get into low and to get out of low you are suppose to put the vehicle in neutral. Its not suppose to shift without using the neutral position once the gear is selected. The knobs and lights on the dash will not response correctly without going into neutral.

You should be back to normal once you follow the procedure. You should not over rev the engine by driving in low, so watch your tachometer and do not exceed 3000 rpm.

I would be more inclined to look at the U-joints at either end of the drive line. Bent tubes usually cause vibration at speed. Jack up both rear wheels and put gearbox in neutral. Spin the wheels by hand and observe the drive line for being bent as it turns. A rare problem which allows the rear axle to twist under acceleration might be possible.

Clunky Vibration or Shutter

I'd shudder too at 260,000 miles. . By shudder, do you mean vibration?. U-joints usually show up at around 45 mph. So try to narrow it down.
