Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


From what you are describing this is a common issue with the torque converter which is located between the engine and the gear box.
The splines inside of the torque converter become worn and result in the shutter. This normally does not damage the gear box and just the torque converter requires replacement.
