Many Chevrolet Colorado owners are complaining about shudder or vibration on their vehicles. Dealers are suggesting transmission fluid change, torque converter replacement and other remedies.
Shudder/Vibration easily felt in steering column about a week ago, has gotten worse and more often. My dealer has been great getting me in a loaner car, so no complaints there. They said I needed to replace the torque converter. My truck only has 2500 miles on it, so it’s essentially new. The tech who signed me in mentioned it may be the transmission fluid they’d used originally, (or the torque converter, which it ended up being). My concern is wondering what they used, why that could cause shudder, vibration, any “long term effects” for the transmission? I understand that may be a different issue, but I found it interesting the tech volunteered this info as if it’s a fairly frequently occurring problem for the 2018 Colorado with the 8 speed automatic. In any event, I assume they’ll do a transmission flush anyway along with replacing the torque converter.Car complaint Chevy Colorado
