Engine Performance problem
1992 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 156000 miles

I have a 92 Accord that drives great. It is a automatic however when I am accelerating I can tell there is a jerk when it is moving between 1st and 2nd gear and maybe even between 2nd and 3rd. Again it isan automatic but you can tell when a car is moving between gears. What could be the casue of this problem. Mechanically this seems to be the ONLY problem this Homda has once I get up to about 35 40 it is smooth sailing.
