Default my 2003 acura tl type s sounds like its in neutral when when im taking off at a light?

it sounds like my transmission is slipping some time but it only does it when im taking off at a light, or when i first start taking off good. 99% of the time it changes right it is a 5 speed automatic

Bye-bye torque converter. Sounds like another infamous Honda 5AT bites the dust Your dealer may be able to goodwill this as automatic transmission failures are pretty commonplace with Honda.
