Customer Question

Hi, I was driving on the highway today when my truck started shuddering every time I accelerated in 4th gear 2006 F150 4.2l v6 with the manual transmission. 111,000 miles.
JA: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?
Customer: No problems shifting at all. 5th gear shuddered even worse
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I just got home a few minutes ago and inspected the truck. Nothing underneath seemed out of place
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not that I can thinkj of

road test again and push the button on the end of the shifter. that will not allow the torque converter from locking up and see if it still happens. the clutches in the converter may be the issue.
