The concern appears to be the overdrive, however, the actual problem may be the torque converter. If you try turning off the overdrive, does it still do it? Most often, when the overdrive goes out, it simply fails to engage. The most common shudder from Ford transmissions is the torque converter. Unfortunately, the solenoid isn't usually the problem, but the torqe converter itself. Try turning the overdrive off and see if it still does it. Post back with an answer and we'll go from there.
