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.

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.
had to replace transmission. Transmission would not change gears, only first and sometimes second gear would work. Nothing higher.
