i am on the 3rd torque,you are probly correct about the shudder but it is poor elct throttle controle to a poor valve body and computor to keep the torqe locked up to long, do not by the emmision isueas lugging engine notclean.chrysler is the problem,they deserve bankrupsy. cliffGuys the torque converter is not the problem!! Go find a set of rumble strips on the highway and drive over them, unless you're experiencing that kind of vibration the transmission is not shuddering. If you're feeling a vibration around 60-80kms and your engine RPMs are down around 1200-1300 its the engine vibrating!!!
The problem is solely in the programming of the transmission. Torque converters, valve bodies, and complete transmission assemblies with not fix this problem.
The 42RLE transmission works this way to meet emissions regulations.
