Hello. This is a common problem with Acura transmissions that have V6 motors. The transmission would need to be rebuilt or replaced entirely in order to fix the problem. There are recalls from the dealer about transmission problems in these cars. I recommend that you contact your local dealer to see if your car has a recall for the transmission.
