last week I bought a 2013 Acadia ...I’m now noticing that it shakes/putting when going into 2nd/3rd gear (so I think?) I am a single mom of 2 and have no idea about cars lol ...it has no check engine light or anything... I’m nervous it’s the transmission ...if so I’ll be sick!

Transmission. But can't say if it's a problem or an annoyance. My '19 flares during the 2-3 shift often (I know exactly the parameters, can make it happen).

Thanks for the reply....when I’m going from 0 mph to about 30mph is when it starts shuddering and Wanting to putt (1800/2000 rpms) the guy I bought it from said to change the oil and spark plugs and see...but I have a hard time believing that one sigh

Took it today to a transmission shop ...it is in fact the transmission/torque converter :(

When you mentioned shuddering, I was afraid it might be a failed torque converter. Good Luck.
