Car shuddering. tranny problem?

My car was sitting at idle waiting for the light and just a huge shudder, that happened about the three times, happened. The problem was there maybe three months ago but was less extreme. I also recently got an engine put in, but im afraid i migt have to rebuild the tranny, since its the same one for about 180k miles on the tranny and about 70k miles on the engine. Does this mean tranny rebuild.
Can someone help, thanks

Auxiliary belt...

I had exerienced the same thing a couple months back, what happen was that the pulley (forget which one) at the bottom of the front of the engine had cracked. The last one at the bottom side of the driver side. It slowly had gotten worse and finally the crack get bigger and the pulley lifted up and the belt ripped off and had to get it replaced. Easy fix... Take it in as soon as you can to avoid any other damage to your car.
