How do you know when the transmission is going out? on 1996 Acura RL

Driving one day about 70mph,the car slowed down to about 65.Then it speedup again to 70,then I heard this clonking noise from underneath car, pulled over and called a tow truck. Car will go into drive & reverse,but when driven around 35mph it makes that clonking noise underneath.

That generation of transmission gave some trouble, If the transmission oil is discolored or smells burned it could be an early sign of trouble. A check Engine Light will come on for some a lot of transmission codes. Have it checked out by a transmission or Acura specialist.
