Didn't you have an Accent? A silver one? Unless I missed something?

By "shudder" do you mean that when it kicks down and you hear the drone, you can feel a mild throbbing from the engine? I get a similar symptom around 48-52mph in lockup. Just at those low speeds though. I'm not sure if it'* my unbalanced wheels or the Trans.

38-43


this happens when it is NOT in overdrive, it is when the torque converter clutch is locked, and it is unable to engauge all the way. I was advised by an (independent) trans shop to use some Limited slip differential additive.

if that does not work they will do a basic rebuild with 1 year warranty for only $1700 vs the $2000+ because most every other part in there should be in new shape

for the record the trans is almost 3 years old. Therefore I have no warranty

Limited slip diff additive?

Is this specific for a FWD or something they add to a RWD rear end?

If its what I think it is wouldn't it be harmful to the clutches? Just wondering

yeah thats the stuff you put in you rear end when you have clutches in there, helps them clutch better

Mine does not kick down at those speeds, but I do get a 'shudder' type feeling holding 35mph to low 40s. I have to get up to 48-52 for it to kick down to 1700 rpms. Otherwise at high 30mph range I'm at 2200rpms. I'm not sure what'* exactly normal, so as long as it keeps engaging I'll hope it to be all good. I am always in OD too.

HMM, I'll see if dads interested in selling the 4T60E HD he has here out of the 1993 Park Avenue Ultra parts car. Has 93k on it and worked excellent the 20 miles we drove it.

One thing to note is that it is not a Traction Control equipped trans so the trans would work, but your TC would be defunct.
