Low air pressure in the tires would put drag on the car. Going uphill should
put drag on a car too. And, if you were able to start off on a hill without
a shudder, low air pressure shouldn't cause your torque converter (or
anything else) to shudder.
So if you are experiencing shudder in your car now, it is not because of low
Shudder? As in "torque converter shudder?" Absolutely not. If you know
what TC shudder feels like, I don't think you could ever be fooled into
thinking a tire shimmy or vibration would be TC shudder.
If you have no idea what TC shudder feels like, that would be different.
I'm an expert at knowing what TC shudder feels like. Just was wondering
if it was possible that low tires could kinda do the same thing to the
car as going up a hill since the car won't roll as easy with low tires.
