lightly accelerating between 45-50 MPH with torque converter locked, it shudders. I accelerate harder and it goes away. If I run with it in "tow/haul" it doesn't occur. My wonderful dealer cannot replicate therefore cannot fix....any ideas? 2004 1500 4x4 with hemi.

Mine shudders now and then too. Dealer said its normal.

I think its the lock up trying to let go and go back etc.

Now, whenever I need to hit it a little while in a high gear, I put it in tow/haul mode. No problems that way.

normal my ass..they reprogrammed my torque converter saying that the reason that my truck does not idle right when the engine is cold is becasue the torque converter is locking up.. guess what it is still doing it and i am going back today..in my experience the dealership is full of shit..

The converter still locks in 3rd gear in the tow/haul mode.
