Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no. only around 50-70 mph and gets worse if i try accelerating slowly. if i let up on the gas and come back slowly it will go away for a few minutes

this does sound like a bad torque converter, if you shift it out of over drive, does the shuttering stop?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
tried that and still had the problem
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 5 years ago.
then its not in the overdrive gears, and is most likely a bad torque converter,Tim
