Problem Description and Possible Solution
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.
Average mileage: 120,000 (72,000–148,000)

A VIBRATION/SHUDDER OCCURRED AT APPROX. 35 MPH. THIS WAS DUE TO THE LOCK-UP TORQUE CONVERTER CYCLING. A TRANSMISSION RE-PROGRAM (FLASH) SOLVED THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A FLASH UPDATE TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE. I WONDER HOW MANY TRANSMISSIONS HAVE BEEN OVERHAULED OR TORQUE CONVERTERS REPLACED UNNECESSARILY.
