Hello, when the vehicle is shuttering does it go away if you put the vehicle in neutral?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Never tried but as soon as i pull away it stops

It sounds like you have a torque converter shutter. It happens when the fluid breaks down. To correct it you want to flush the transmission. It won't affect longevity of the transmission. Having the transmission flushed will correct the concern.
