1996 Honda Accord Ex mileage: 120,000. My car has some difficulty in accelerating when I stop at a traffic light and then proceed. It will not go beyond 20 mph, and the engine has a loud noise. Thirty seconds later the problem disappears. The problem occurs occasionally, especially on local roads. In addition, I was told that I need a valve adjustment very badly when I did the oil change this January. Does the problem have anything to do with it? My transmission is leaking.

Do you

We think that the problem you described may be caused by the transmission; something as simple as being low on fluid. Worse case scenario is after 120,000 your transmission may need to be overhauled.
