  • My E4OD developed the dreaded torque converter shudder a while ago. I changed the tranny fluid and added a can of JB tranny supplement.

    I'm contemplating the Transgo HD2 for my E4OD when I drop the pan to change Also, thhe Transgo kit refers to Torque Converter Shudder.

    I have a '90 E with the E4OD and it has a torque converter drain plug. If you can get it while it is fresh shut off you may get up to 2 gallons out of the torque.

    Anyway, the driveshaft and u-joints are all tight as hell. If you touch the brake pedal to turn on the stop lights the shudder will immediately stop. Securely engage the transmission gearshift selector lever in the park position, fully set the parking brake control and leave the engine running. D is the same as D with the transmission control switch actuated light on.

    At the same time, and under my own assumption that the fluid had likely never been changed, i added a quart of Lucas oil additive when i filled it up, so as to prevent any further damage if only i'd seen the article about lucas and foam. So, a few months later, the truck develops a very severe shake between 38 and 45mph, one that i could compare to driving on tires shaped like cam lobes.

    Hi Bryan Have you checked the fluid to see if it is burned? I have a '90 E with the E4OD and it has a torque converter drain plug.

    If you can get it while it is fresh shut off you may get up to 2 gallons out of the torque converter. Mine had sat for a long time and so drained back to the pan and I only got about a gallon or so. When reinstalling the plug may want some permatex on the threads and be very careful to not cross thread. What kind of tranny fluid did you put in?

    I believe it takes Mercon and if you were to put Type F in it would likely make for some very firm shifts and maybe could cause some shuddering as the Type F does not have friction modifiers IIRC. It seems to be one of the very few transmission additives that is viewed as a good product. It is worth the few dollars to save your tranny. I used to be under the impression of Lucas Trans Fix additive being the best. Even before reading anything here, I have grown to question it.

    It performed wonders in a mile 91 Lumina transmission that was slipping. The same on a 98 Taurus, then the same on my friend's 94 SLS, and oh yes, it made one more problem in a 94 Corsica, but it didn't fail.

    Maybe coincidence, yes, but it sure followed a trend. Since the last bad experience, we've not used Lucas Lugeguard has been the choice additive. Trans fluid temps were checked during driving and idling with the 96 STS before and after the Lucas additive. This was not issued until the I believe 95 with the 4R70W's, but since the E4OD is the same tranny save a few sensor I'd say you apply.

    Personally I swear by Lucas but if there is something better I will use it. On the surface it sounds as if the Lucas screwed up the Dynamic Friction coefficient of the bulk fluid. Put in some LC, run it until hot, and then drain as much of the fluid as possible, and replace with the specified fluid. I don't know about the '93's, but the 98's used MerconV.

    You can avoid that big splash of ATF by suctioning off as much fluid as possible through the dipstick tube. Have found it very useful in changing Transmission fluid, Power Steering fluid, gear box oil and small engine oil. I did not drop my pan as it had been done 20, miles previous and the filter changed then. So I drained the torque converter TC , suctioned out the pan, ran it for about a minute, drained another 5 qts from the TC.
