    I haven't fixed it I can't afford the damn thing, Acura should replace all these garbage heaps. They knew about this in 2000 and it still happening in 2004, maybe you should look into changing your transmission to a different kind of transmission since this one doesn't seem to be working! But you know that's how it goes, because this just wouldn't be the United States of America if people were not being ripped off by corporations.
