Hi, On my 2000 town car signature series recently felt for a nano second right when overdrive kicks in feels like I ran over 1 rumble strip as you see on highways, its a quick single thump or shudder, to me it feels as it's coming from the rear of the car but not 100% sure, Also when slowing down I feel it downshift right before stopping, also recently when taking off I can hear the tranny shift into 2nd, I can't describe what I hear when it goes into 2nd but it's not a shudder, Appreciate any replies.

It could be an accumulator or shift valve hanging up or a wiring issue not allowing a shift solenoid to not engage properly or something like a seal bad in one of the clutch paks.
