F250 1995 vibrations 20 to 50 km/h

Hi guys,

i have had my truck for over 4 years now and it was running really until few weeks ago, starting to vibrate between 20and 50 km/h when it shifts gear, i guess between the second and third, and it seems like it takes forever to get to the gear.

i serviced the transmission fluid, i changed the filter ( the fluid was dark and stinked like crazy), then it was still vibrating, so i change my spark plugs, it was needed but it sill vibrates..

Any idea ?

Btw, my f250 has an automatic transmission, a 5.8l V8 EFI, and it's a RWD, 208000kms and got tuned up when i bought it in 2013, everything got flushed, serpentine changed, differential flushed, some wiring changed

thanks in advance for your comments

Sounds like torque converter problem.

Where are you located? Any chance you got some ice or snow packed into your wheels?

I'm in Edmonton Alberta Canada, we had effectively some really cold period but would it last that long with some thawing days ?
But if so, were exactly should i check ? Also my long box is empty so i don't have any weight and it's a RWD

Look at the inside rim circumference for snow/ice buildup.
