Its time to vist a transmission shop and have them test drive your car and provide a diagnosis. Unfortunatly, when it comes to transmissions, all the working parts are on the inside and have to be removed to be checked and/or serviced.
Dr. Tranny Shudder Fix. I have a 1996 Lincoln Town Car, 125k miles, had a shudder that progressively got worse. Worried I'd need a new tranny even though mine was replaced at 89k. I read someone recommending Dr. Tranny Shudder Fix and thought it couldn't be that cheap or easy. But it worked. Put the small tube contents into my transmission fluid and it was gone immediately. Bought on Ebay for $11 bucks. Car runs like new. Truly amazing.
I have read on several websites that you should have the transmission fluid replaced. Take it to a transmission shop, not one of those places that change your oil in ten minutes.
