Customer Question
I get a vibration...

I get a vibration sometimes when it shifts into it's final gear. If I take it out of Over Drive, it's fine. It only happens when in overdrive.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

This is a 1999 merc mountaineer AWD V8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mountaineer yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've had local mechanics work on it and so far no results. One said that there is a belt that is slipping. I never heard of a belt in an automatic transmission.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nope, that's it.

Hi my name is***** vibration is from the lock up torque converter for the transmission. Sometimes you can have the fluid flushed and torque converter drained to get most of the fluid out and put in mercon five or six fluid will fix problem. If it doesn't then converter will need replaced.
