I own a 96 Accord with 140,000 miles. The car has an auto trans. When I start the car it will have a slight shutter when it idles and the tach will show variance of about half (vary between 1.5 - 2). When I put the car into gear, it hesitates while in first gear (push the gas pedal but will slowly gain speed and hesitate to gain more). However, once the car shifts into 2nd there is no problem. If problem only occurs the first time I am in 1st gear. If the car shifts into second gear and then stop the car and try to drive again; there is no hesitation of sputtering. Is this an engine problem or trans? What could be causing the problem?
have the same problem?
