2000 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 132000 miles
My car has developed a torque converter shudder, according to a transmission shop I took it to. They told me that the best fix for this is a complete transmission and torque converter overhaul. Is this the only way? Also, I have been continuing to drive the car, turning off the overdrive when I am traveling at low speeds in stop and go driving, then turning it back on when I accelerate to highway speeds. If I ultimately have to have the transmission overhauled, will my continuing to drive it in this manner result in any further damage and expense?
