Re: Shudder Problem
I realize this is an older post, but I had the same issue. I looked all over & apparently there is a faulty seal where the tranny fill tube meets the top of the tranny. As the A/C condenses it runs down the side of the fill tube & leaks through that seal. Apparently, the Mercedez/Benz trannys are also pretty sensitive - as it does not seem to take much moisture to cause it to shake like a beast!
The only "fix" anyone seems to know of is to flush/fill the tranny & cover that seal w/ ATF-RTV silicone. My mechanic did this and it worked pretty well. I may have to have him check it again though, as it has started again (1yr later), but it is not nearly as bad nor as frequent. He told me that he has seen them as bad as the fluid being pink!
I really wish Chrysler had done better on this one!
