Default '96 Acura 3.2TL automatic hesitates in first gear?

I have a '96 Acura 3.2TL automatic, and it jerks a couple times while taking off from a dead stop before shifting into 2nd gear. The rpm's hesitate while they rise but once it shifts into 2nd though, it doesn't jerk anymore? What is the problem? Is it the Spark Plugs? Or is it the Spark Plug wires? or is it something completely different?In other gears It doesn't Hesitate. Its only when its in first gear. When I floor the gas pedal from a dead stop, there is no problem. Its only when I take off regularly that it hesitates. The idling is the same as before, it usually idles around 1500rpms. Do you think the first gear is sticking?

Since you did not mentioned any trouble with rest of the gears it does not seem like spark plug or plug wires problem. Is car idling at a lower speed then before? May be your gas pedal is slow to respond?

We had a 98 TL which is the same thing. All of the TLs through 2003 had horrible transmissions. All of them have to be replaced at sometime. When you have a bad transmission, though, many different things can happen. It can grown, hesitate at different parts, or (in our case) hesitate and then quickly overheat.This repair will be costly, so get ready...
