hey how are you ,I will try to help you with this issue

the shudder on these vehicle ,under load,(like 2000 rpm ) will be a TCC solenoid, torque converter shift solenoid or the torque converter itself, to know for sure we need to have it scanned with Volvo or equivalent scanner ,

what is the mileage on it now and was the trans ever serviced or checked for fluid level and quality

lets start here and we go from there

Please let me know

Thank You
