Default my '80 Accura Integra goes really slow when starting in 1st all the way to third gear. Why?

I start in 1st and it goes really really slow and takes a while to build up speed to get to 2nd, especially if I am going uphill. My r.p.m.s go high, but not my speed.Then, when I'm in 2nd it is a little better, and works best if I take my time building up speed. But it is still really slow.Finally, when I get to 3rd gear, I'm usually okay and I can then keep a fine driving speed.But I don't have to tell you all how aggravating this is. I live in a city and there is a lot of stopping and going. All the cars behind me get p.o.'d, but I can't do anything about it. I have to drive my car to work. There is no other option.I am sure that I am putting it in the right gear and I had an oil change less than 200 miles ago.Can anyone please help? I'm desperate for suggestions and I can't afford a new car right now.

Sounds like your clutch is slipping, make sure it is adjusted properly. If so then it is time to replace it.

I can't get past the fact that you're driving a 28 year old car! Perhaps it's just getting old and doesn't function as well as it did when it was new...

Yes its probably your clutch. Clutch dont last forever you know. It seems like it's slipping and not adjusting properly until 3rd. So try replacing your clutch and see if everything is good. best of luck.

there is no such thing as a 1980 integra. Acura didn't come into being until 1986. do you mean 1990?not sure if you have an automatic or a manual transmission. I had a 1990 AT integra GS and when I was at about 120,000 miles, my car started to do that. It would nearly red-line until I hit about 40 miles per hour. The folks at local car repair shop and the local acura dealership informed me that it was the beginnings of transmission problem. I would at some point have to get the transmission replaced. best advice either take to acura or a trusted mechanic.
