I have a 2015 XLT 2wd. About 6 mo. ago I added the trans fix additive and it stopped the shudder. Now it is back. We just went on a trip, and it is really noticable. It has 194k miles on it. Do I add another bit of the additive or go to ford. Thanks, all...

Is the check engine light on?
I have a '16 and had the plugs changed before I took a road trip from TN to KS. Turns out #3 plug had a hairline crack in it, on the way back I got some weird shuddering and a check engine light.

Have you tried a drain and fill with fresh transmission fluid?
Drain and fill....meaning remove the transmission pan and just change the filter and fill it back.

The flush is not a recommended. I have a 2010 with the same issue I used the shudder fixx and it worked which means that the fluid needs to be changed. If it didn't work that means your torque converter is done.

Agree with the last post about the torque converter, 194k is a lot.

Rebuild likely needed. Wait too long and risk hard part damage which will add to the cost.

Find a good transmission shop, don't shop price, and have it looked at.
