2001 Acura TL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles
When I speed up the car, the RPM shoots up rapidly and the gear does not change. It would eventually go to a higher gear and RPM will drop down, but the gear shift is happening at a much higher RPM than usual. For example, it would go to about 3000-3500 RPM at the speed of 30-35 mph before shifting to a higher gear and RPM dropping.
Once when the ROM shot up, I got " Check Engine" light and took it to a shop. The mechanic read the code. It was 730 - " Incorrect Gear Ratio".
I know that Acura had extended the warranty on transmission, but it is already expired on this vehicle.
Wondering if someone can tell me what the possible cause could be and what would it typically cost to fix this problem!
