Any options less than 4 grand.

I have a 2000 Excursion wit 183k miles. The tranny is jerking while in overdrive. I think it may be the torque converter but I am no expert. Is there anyone out there who has experience with Monster Transmissions. They list a 4r100 for 2300 plus the price of their torque converter. My truck is basically stock and does only moderate towing.

I wouldn't go trying to spend that much without getting a good trans shop to scan it for codes from the trans. Is your OD light flashing?
Also, first I would drop the pan, check magnet, replace filter, clean it all, add the lost fluid, and maybe even drop the valve body and clean it.
But it may not be trans problems at all. Could be a throttle position sensor (TPS), maybe even the camshaft position sensor (CPS), fuel filter, loss of high pressure oil, or who knows.

I will definitely change the fluid and filter but the jerking is getting worse and it happened today while towing my boat with the overdrive turned off. I need to check around for a good tranny shop. Does anybody know of a good one in western North Carolina?

I don't think the trans is your issue.

I just went through a similar issue... Between 45 and 60 the truck would really buck, I could hit the tow button and it would go away. RPM was 1200 to 1800, I was for sure my OD was toast. I had some rough starts from a dead start too, so I was kind of baffled... I didn't have any engine lights. I pulled the codes with my CTS, I had two for #6 injector...

Turns out the injector came unplugged, easy fix and bucking is all gone!!!

Thanks guys I will check the codes this weekend. I sure hope I get lucky and find something other than a weak transmission.
