You mean it shuddered really bad? or you mean itacclerated, and felt like
the engine cut out andstuff?  If it is shuddering, you are probably
talking about chatter.  Chatter is usually caused by getting oil or
something on the disk.  At first it will slip, then after it soaks in a
while and dries up it will chatter like a bitch.
If thats the deal, its a problem with an oil seal somewhere, or my freinds
car was doing it when his freeze plug that is in the bellhousing went.
But either way, I would seriously doubt linkage.
