I have a 2004 Mitsubishi Magna with a 5spd auto transmission. It's done approx 75,000km (47,000 miles) and up until now it's been fine. About 3 weeks ago I started noticing the gear changes becoming harsh****** and since then it has started shuddering when I take my foot off the accelerator. I notice it most in 3rd gear around 60kph (35mph), but it does it in all gears. It only does it initially when my foot comes off the pedal and then it smooths out again as the revs drop further. Today I did some maintenance which included: Oil change, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter, and fuel system treatment additive which is meant to clean injectors and such, and I sprayed throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and in the idle speed controller section. I then took it for a 20min drive and it's still doing it. I didn't expect it to be fixed, but if you can help me out and give me a suggestion or two that would be much appreciated.
Thanks heaps in advance.
