Default My 2008 Honda Accord Automatic in the past few days has been shifting weird at take off from a...

...full complete? stop, it shifts from 2 to 3.5 gear with a slight kick if you are taking off slow, if you are taking off fast it shifts at a hard rev from 2 - 4th gear. This happens after the car warms up and the car has 91,000 miles on the car. Could this be a bad transmission?

before you go condemning the transmission, check the transmission fluid level. if its low you will have the conditions you describe. if the fluid is low, then look for a leak because hydraulic fluid doesn't just evaporate.

if the fluid level is correct, change the transmission fluid. have the fluid that is drained out run through a paint strainer. that will show if there is any metal from internal damage in the fluid.

the reason this happens hot is that temperature affects the fluid viscosity and the seals inside the transmission. a 'thicker' fluid or seal can transfer the hydraulic pressure well enough to shift the trans cold by you could have internal seal leaks or insufficient pressure when warm.

hope that helps
