Transmission shudder advice

2519 Views 44 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  lakes73
So I got the infamous shudder and quickly panicked and took it for a wheel balance hoping for the best.. still a shudder so I take it for a transmission fluid change shop calls and they tell me bad internal transmission so then I start really freaking out until I read more into it.. so I’m thinking to just go for a transmission flush and hope that solves it all. What would you guys recommend?

p.s I just hit 223k miles

I wonder, when the dealer replaces the torque converter- since the fluid is lifetime rated, are they going to re-use it or replace with new?
