Default Transmission Shake(auto)?

My "new" '99 Automatic with 4.6 has a transmission shake, especially in OD at low speeds. Feels like it is running on 7 cylinders. I am going to check the TSB's but thought this may be very common and somebody will know what it is and the fix, hopefully! I was told that the tranny needs new fluid and there is an additive that is supposed to remedy this possible converter shake/shimmy. Ring a bell with anyne? Thanks, Mark

You might want to post this in the regular 4.6 forum not the '05+ 4.6 as our motors and transmissions have little in common.

My 99 GT auto did the same thing. It was still under warranty then and was taken care of. The problem is that I don't remember what the problem was. Sorry, but it must be a common problem.

It's the torque converter. Possibly can be fixed with just a fluid and filter change, however I had changed the fluid with the same problems and the shake was still there. Then you have to replace the torque converter to remidity the problem.

My Dad ( God rest his soul .. my best friend ) anyway .. he had / my Mom has it now..
a 97 Windstar .. it sounds just like YOUR problem.. but you won't like my answer.. it needed a trans overhaul.. sorry.. as far as adding.. snake oil/ additive.. you are wasting your money and may cause more problems...

Thanks. I did a google search and came up with the problem and supposed answer. Use the correct Dexron 5 fluid and an additive for the problem. As stated it is the torque converter and if needed then that is what I will have to get! Thanks and I will check out the 4.6 forum for older cars, didn't see it, sorry! Mark
