Dieing Torque Converter? Need an opinion.

Truck has 134K on it, pretty much stock truck. Seems to shift ok, but the truck has a noticeable shake while you are accelerating or just cruising up until about 60 mph, then it stops. while accelerating or cruising under 60 mph the shake stops when you let off the gas. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I forgot to mention that when you take your foot off the gas and then just touch it again there you can hear a a slight but noticeable thud or clunk. Also the U-Joints are about a year old and look good.

check all bolt and fastners ion the rear end. usually the TC will be giving a grinding vibrational noise that you can hear when idleing. It could be your TC, but sometimes the OD light will flash on the shifter for the trans telling you theres somethign wrong.

Does it do it hot or cold, or does it go away when warm?

No it always does it no matter what temp, and the tranny never overheats.

No. It just has a shutter/shake to it. No violent, just steady.

mines doing the same thing? At first I thought tc, but if it was that wouldnt it not do it if you turn the od off? Supposedly, that stops the tc shudder? Or tapping the brake lightly? That does not effect mine. Mine does it at 40 to 45 mph and 1200 to 1600 rpm. Its fine on the freeway. I wonder whether its my tc or injectors skipping? i dont know how to tell?
Oh, mine does not seem to do it cold.????
