    Only thing so far is to change transmission fluid. The other option is a high mileage ATF attitive that I got from Pep boys. I still have it but not as often.

DO NOT USE ANY OTHER FLUID OTHER THAN MITSUBISHI FLUID!!!! Any other fluid other than Mitsubishi fluid will blow the torque converter these transmission are very picky. Have a COMPLETE fluid tranny flush with Mitsubishi ATF Fluid. If your truck is an AWD that had a recall on the drive shaft, if you have an AWD and did not experience this before you have just been lucky and now had your luck run out at 160K. I would however put my money on the use of non-Mitsubishi transmission fluid.

I have same problem. searched internet and found (edmunds.com)
mitsubishi endeavor maitenance and repair.
Feb 04, 2012 (3:31 am) I just purchased a 2004 Endeavor LS with 45,000 miles on it.....from a dealer. On my test drive at 40 MPH there was a slight "shutter". The best way to describe it is like when you run over the little reflectors in the middle of the road and you tell your passengers you are driving my braile.

Anyway, the dealer fixed it, reassured me that it was NOT the transmission. He told me that they called a Mitsubishi dealer (I purchased from a Chevrolet dealer) and the mechanic immediately told the Chevy's dealer mechanic what to check. They did...problem gone. Five days have come and gone and I have not had another problem. I did purchase an after market warranty....2 years/24k miles for a little added comfort. What I would really like to know is if anyone here has experienced this problem and if so, can you explain it to me in english? I have a low speed shudder that is around 30-40 - emo_smiley.gif

I had an 04 XLS with a similar problem. I took mine into Les scwabb where they found that the nut of the bolt to the "nuckle" behind the drivers wheel was missing and the bolt was sliding out. I purchased a locking nut from a nuts and bolts store and fixed it myself. Drove it another year without a problem then sold it. Have your tires checked. Mine did this for a while before I took it in and it threw my alignment way off and wore the tires unevenly so I had to purchase all new tires for the car....

What would make the front end shake between 20 and 30 MPH and then go away?


Sounds like your transmission unit could do with a fluid change, along with a new filter. If you are over 100k in mileage, transmission shudder can be common in some models. Have an auto shop drive it and give you a firm quotation for fluid and filter replacement.

On the long shot, it could be a drive shaft joint tightening up if you have a transaxle.

Hope this helps...

That symptom occurs when the guibo bushes are bad. There is one between the transmission and drive shaft and then another one between drive shaft and rear diff. Get it checked. They normally vibrate under load.

Tranny shudder low speed 35-45 mph


The shifting sequence releases one clutch as it engages the other, so it may be one or the other out of timing, so there is a partial engagement or disengagement. Does the tranny oil, on the dipstick smell burned, or feel significantly different than fresh fluid? How many miles on the fluid? What model 95 Dodge? Has the tranny been rebuilt some time in the near past? (I ask that because, years ago I had a BMW tranny rebuilt by a very good shop ans noted on the work order that it had to be built and filled only with type F fluid. When I picked up and road tested the car, the tranny made an groaning noise on the up-shift. I took the dar back to the shop and asked what fluid it was filled with. They said Dexron II. I pointed out the work order and my telling them to only use type F, . They changed the fluid and refilled with type F, which was a waste because the clutch plates were contaminated with Dexron, so they decided to rebuild the trans mission,l They did, and filled it with type F and it was just as bad, so they claimed there was probably a problem in the valve body. I asked them what fluid they soaked the new plates in before assembly, It was Dexron, so they rebuilt it again using tyoe F for the pre soak of plates and bands, The tranny worked perfectly.
For a Chrysler product, I would only use Mopar brand fluid, even if the manual said there was an acceptable substitute. This is also true for the brake fluid and coolant, as the cost of a mistake can be huge. Remember, whoever changes the fluid is married to any problems that show up. I owned a six bay repair shop with a full machine shop for ten years before retiring. We did not do transmissions, it was legally safer to have them done by a reputable transmission shop or the dealer, bringing them the vehicle.

It may be your torque converter, or you may need a simple fluid change. Make sure they use the EXACT fluid as mentioned in your owners manual. get the fluid changed first, as replacing the torque converter can cost a couple thousand dollars.

Vehicle shudders at certain speeds and rpms.


Sounds like the torque converter. can be tricky, new one expensive, I had the same problem, talked to a buddy who is ford master mechanic, he told me to DRAIN, the TC, then put new fluid in. He said DRAIN, and NOT flush. because if you flush, and the magnet inside is missing or screwed up, it will push all of the little pieces of metal and **** into transmission. I had the dealership do this, and it cost around 150-200. It worked, and I was lucky, cause they told me it hadad no magnet, but it worked, not shuddered since.

Transmission Problem


Your particular vehicle has the 4R70W trans,and i have rebuilt a ton of them over the years.It could very well be a TCC shudder.Let me explain.Between the rear of the engine,and the front of the trans is a Torque Convertor.Inside the convertor is a clutch that only applies after 4th gear is achieved.This is to reduce slippage and gain better fuel economy.Sometimes,the fluid will deteriorate,or the clutch will become weak and won't hold totally,and will give a chattering or running over a washboard sensation.Sometimes the engagement and disengagement is simply harsh.This can usually be remedied with a fluid replacement of both the pan and the fluid in the torque convertor,along with some shudder fix fluid that you add in to the fluid.Total cost should be $100-$150-$200.If the fluid change and shudder fix doesn't correct the problem,then the torque convertor itself would need to be replaced with a remanufactured unit.Ford has more info on this shudder fix as there was a recall campaign i believe for the convertor shudder problem.Good luck.

Transmission shudder


I had a similar problem on my 93 Accord after I accidentally threw the car in reverse at 50 mph, obviously wrecking the transmission. When I got it rebuilt I was told the transmission pump was to blame (clogged with "shrapnel"). I, and your car manual, recommend taking the car in to get the tranny looked at. Especially considering you just had the fluid changed which is what would normally cause the problems you are describing.
