Welcome to JustAnswer!!! My name is***** a 16 Yr Dodge dealership technician and I will be helping you with your question today...
How does the fluid look? Have you tried servicing it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Fluid looks pink still was gonna do a filter change and see if that helps any had it flushed last year about this time
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
The shudder is from the clutches not fully engaging all the way and will vibrate/chatter/shudder until they are fully engaged. Since the fluid it's burnt, there's a chance you can service the transmission and add some friction modifier like Trans-x which also has alcohol to sweel the seals and give you a firmer shift. Give that a try and if you still have the shudder after 500 miles then I would look into building the transmission..
I hope this helps, and if you need anymore assistance all you have to do is reply..
