    I recently had a motor mount replaced and oil changed. Problem seems to go away if I accelerate through it but very jerky t times while trying to maintain speeds less than 40 mph

    My motor mounts are replacements, Trans is newly rebuilt, but out of warrantee. I think it or an old engine (212K) is the problem and one I will live with until it drops dead..

    Since original posting, replaced longer of 2 transaxles including CV joints. 50% improvement. Previous axle was cheap Chinese make. Replace with much more expensive Chrysler rebuilt.

It's a step-by-step process. If it only happens on acceleration then it is a drivetrain problem. Start verifying from the outer cv joints and go in from there

Shudders(shakes) at about 60mph

You may have worn out CV joints on the front wheel drive axles, they vibrate/shudder badly if they are really worn out.

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.
