Ok, so I have a car issue. Unlike most or all of you guys and girls, I know NOTHING about cars. Here is my problem......
I have an auto 97 EX and whenever I go to accelerate it acts like a manual.
Hmm, maybe that doesn't make sense....it seems like it's hard for the gears to shift? You know when you shift gears it kinda pulls back...it sorta feels that way. I have to push really hard for my car to go fast..especially up hills!!!
I don't know...does anybody understand what I'm trying to say. HELP

I know that honda's had problems with their Transmissions in the past it might be your trany slipping or not engaging correctly.
This is my guess, your tranny is slipping. When was last ime the tranny fluid was changed?

If it has been a long time, chances are it has damaged the tranny, and after flushing the tranny fluid, you will have a few minths before the tranny actually goes bad. On the other hand it may be bad already and need replacing. In any case this is probably not a good thing. :(
