Looks like your transmission is finished my friend. You should change the oil at around 50,000 miles. Now you need to rebuild the tranny.

Im sorry Robyn it sounds like your transmission is done. about a 2500 dollar job to rebuild , try to get help from Acura they will want to see that you have been getting it serviced tho, unfortunately they were still very problematic until acura redesigned the trans in the 07 model of luck !(Robyn FYI-It doesn't move in park rite?and the speedo does not show your speed increasing in drive rite? if those things are happening you have a broken cv joint which I do see on the V6 Hondas&Acuras, other than that you need a trans.(sometimes they do not turn check eng light on ,fyi.when I worked for gm we never had so many trans problems .I have worked weekeds with Acura just trying to catch up on failed transmissions.sad

oh Acura.. Why am I not surprised. If I had a dollar for every friend and acquaintance that had their tranny go on their Acura i'd probably have $10 dollars, and that's a lot considering not every single one of them is driving an Acura.

Unfortunately most transmissions don't have lights or warnings on the dash telling you something wrong. My car has some minor tranny issues now, but other than that no lights and it drives good. (not an acura)

If you tranny has black oil, jerks when shifting gears, grinds when shifting gears, slips from neutral or any gear then my friend its time for a new transmission or a new car unfortunately and Acuras are expensive to maintain.

Hello Robyn, it sounds like you have huge transmission problems. Your only solution will be to rebuild your tranny. My best suggestion will be to take your car to a reliable transmission shop. Brand new fluid or additive is not going to fix your problem. Honda/Acura are well known for building weak transmissions (research). Next time, make sure to replace your transmission fluid on time (between 30,000 and 60,000 miles depending on your owners manual). The price for the rebuild will vary by location and shop, but I can tell you it will be around $1800 to $2500. Good Luck!
