Car shudders in high gear under load - transmission?
My '95 SE shudders & vibrates when in overdrive or high gear when car is under load, like when going up a hill. It doesn't take much of a load to start the shuddering. I get it to stop by stepping on the gas so it downshifts, or letting of the gas, then stepping on it again so it goes into a lower gear and gets the RPM up. I'm assuming it'* something in the transmission!? It was doing it when I got the car at 122,000 miles. It now has 143,000 miles. Anybody have any idea what this might be? Thanks.
