Properly Diagnose a 722.6 Shudder in Vehicles with MDS System Engines

A 2007 Dodge Charger equipped with a 5.7L V8 engine and 722.6 transmission was brought to a transmission shop. At the time of the visit, the vehicle had more than 88,000 miles on the odometer. The customer told the service writer that the vehicle had previously been to four different repair shops in a failed attempt to eliminate a downshift shudder and cold-stall condition. A technician road-tested the vehicle and described the condition as a vibration when coming to a stop and — since it was February in the Northeast — the cold-stall condition also was quickly verified.
