It has the 350 engine. As stated the transmission is shuttering under acceleration and when maintaining speed on incline. As much as I hate to hear that I have detrimental issues, it's an answer I must seek...Chuckie!!!

If you're fairly sure it's coming from the tranny I'd start with a fluid/filter change, especially if it hasn't been done in a while. I was having shuddering on my 93 Lincoln Town Car this spring and a fluid drain and filter did the trick. I did add a quart of Lucas Transmission treatment (extra thick tranny fluid). On a side note, the Town Car has a torque converter drain plug, which is a great because you can change out 95% of the fluid, vs the suburban which leaves all that fluid in the torque converter.
Good luck from a fellow Coloradan and 99 burb owner!Current Rides: |99 Chevy Suburban- the family truckster |93 Lincoln Town Car- 250K miles & still churning -now a fan of the Panther platform

Oh, you may want to consider adding a drain plug, or finding an aftermarket tranny pan that has a built in drain plug. I wish I would've done that to my Suburban when I changed the fluid last year because it is a MESS dropping that pan.

It is and its a pain. And I'm sure you already know this, but check that magneto inside the pan. If it's got tiny bits of silver.. well you know what that means.Hotty Toddy!
