Default Shuddering when attempting to shift gears

Hi, I've been doing some searching in regards to my problem, but not sure if it is exactly the same, so here it is.

When my PT gets to the transition point at ~50, it will sometimes jerk as if it can't catch the next gear and not go to the next. After a bit of shuddering it will sometimes stop, but once I get to about 60 it will slows back down to 50 and then shudder and catch again.

My father thinks it is the filter and fluid, the local Aamco I had checked with their "transcan" advised it would be a 1690 repair.

Any advice would be great.

My PT:
2004, 81K miles, used from Chrysler
