Automatic transmission problem with my 2004 Ford Ranger, why is it shuddering?

I have a 2004 Ford Ranger, it begins to shudder really hard when I begin to go over 55 mph. I thought that I may be able to fix it by changing the transmission fluid and filter, but it is still shuddering after I changed them. When I drive it for a bit the O/D OFF light comes on and begins flashing. It goes away when I turn off the truck and turn it back on. I also feel a kick when it shifts into 2nd.

It also appears that no matter how I try to Google why a transmission shudders I find nothing of value, does any one know why a transmission shudders? Or whats wrong with mine for that matter?

Update:

It was the Torque Converter, you guys don't know anything! -_-
