Default Acura 2007 RL

Drive about 300 miles cruise set at 75, no problems. Come to a stop at toll
booth and pick up the ticket. As I take my foot off the brake and start to
accelerate the car starts bucking like a bronco, tach fluctuating wildly
between 500 and 4000 rpm. It's hunting for a gear and can't find one to
engage. Towed into nearest Acura dealer 40 miles away. informed no one
working labor Day weekend. They graciously give me a loaner.
Anybody got any ideas what the problem is?
ps - the fluids were all checked and changed/topped off in May.
Thanks for your input

Did you happen to notice whether the D trans light on the dash was
blinking?

Did you turn the car off and turn it back on to see if that cured it?

Are you sure it was fluctuating wildly like THAT, and not simply
between, say, 500rpm and 1500rpm? maybe 2000rpm?

you're under warranty, which is good. It could be transmission related.
Maybe Honda's infamous auto transmission technology has hit you where it
hurts.

On the other hand, if you've exaggerated the symptoms, it could be an
idle air control valve. That apparently is a VERY common failure in
Hondas (I've had two fail, both on the same car, in 7 years; dealership
isn't at all surprised).
