Almost sounds torque converter related... May be the Solenoid causing the TC to not fully lock... And if there is slip there it can cause a shudder..

Still hard to say tho.. You'd have to have the Dealership have a glance at it.. I'm hopeful that its minor

Crap! You said the dreadful "D" word

Ugh...well...I guess I'll let her sit the rest of the winter out and then come spring I'll get her looked at. My fiance'* boss used to work for a Chevy Dealership so hopefully he can figure it out.

Thanks for your help

Dose anyone know if the TCC solenoid can be unhooked on these trans externally?
As different as they are the one I had was a TCI 700R4 in 92 Camaro. Mine could be unhooked externally & the car would drive normal with the exception of no TCC lockup.

Something else to consider, though it might be a stretch... If you don't drive it all that often maybe you have gotten some little rodent buddies that have gotten in there somewhere & caused some havoc.
It'* not all that uncommon for people who store or seldom use their vehicles.

The 65 E is a little bit too much on the complicated side to do that... with this you will also cause a lot of driveability issues and possibly burn the trans up, and that just yanking the TCC wire...

I can only imagine, other than the TCC on my 700R4 the only other electrical device was the speed-o output. But it was just a thought..
Good luck anyway, hope you find the problem.

I highly doubt that little "friends" got into my car due to it only really being parked in a heated garage for 2 months. I've only put 300 miles on the car since September, but before that I was averaging 3,000 miles every month and a half. I dunno, it'* weird. I drove the car last weekend and it was just fine, then I drove it Monday and Wham! So I'm stumped.

Heated garage dosent mean anything to a cold mouse other than a warm place to sleep.
I've seen guys with garages cleaner than most peoples houses & still find rodent damage to their stored vehicles.

Anyway I wasn't trying to imply anything, I hope you didn't think I was. Just something I've seen quite a lot on stored vehicles.

Have you had snow? Anything packed in behind one wheel?
