auto shudder at 80km
i have an xh ute which starts to shudder at around 80km, took it to a transmission shop and they reckon it is the torque convertor. he said i could either replace it for a ridiculous price or just simply cut the wire and disconnect it which is common practice for taxi's apparently. he stated the only disadvantage is that the box runs slightly hotter however taxis still go for ages. before i consider such an action though, i thought i would get a second opinion.
so does anyone know if this is true and secondly are there any other disadvantages or potential problems that might arise?
