on the back of the bottles they will list what fluid types they will meet.

as for the shudder... don't rule out engine trouble if you haven't already. fix that before anything else.

One thing about using OEM fluids... if you have any kind of Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth... use the mopar fluid. theirs is the only one that works well in those car for some reason.
