Hi,
I have this problem where I am driving along at high speed 80KPH+ and all of a sudden it sounds like the tail shaft is banging about, but then it comes good after a about 5 seconds ... I have looked and there is no obivous signs of problem, but I will add that this happened twice and both during heavy rain... I am wondering could it be electrical as it only has happend during rain maybe soleniod on the transmission ? Definite tail shaft type sound and feel !!!

Has anyone else had something simular.

shuddering at over 80k's usually means the converter is slipping, it may not be this, but from my experience its a definate possibility.
the converter locks up once over 80k's and a worn/old converter can slip and make a shudder/vibration throughout the car and cause a slight loss of power (especially up hill) untill you either back off your speed or get above 90-100k's and it will usually stop slipping.
if it does happen to be this you'll need a new converter.
