The vehicle shudders during acceleration and the tachometer goes up when it shudders. It is not the drive train because I just had a complete new assembly installed.
I had the trans rebuilt last year but now when I ease off the acceleration it shutters or vibrate as it slowly down shifts but if I simply touch the fuel petal it stops until I release it than back to vibration
