I have a 95 Town Car that has been going great in the two weeks since I
bought it. Today I sprayed some orange based cleaner on the cam covers and
rinsed off with water. An hour or so later I went out to fill up and the car
now has a shudder at speeds between about 25-49 MPH that seems to be similar
to the torque converter shudder described by others. Applying the brakes
seems to stop the shudder seemingly confirming Torque Converter but it seems
odd that it would start this just after I did this little clean up job.
Any insight would be appreciated.
If I have to drain the converter I would like to know how this is done.
