I'm not sure how to word this but let me try to explain.. When I'm slowing down and my RPMs are around 2-3k, im downshifting from 3rd to 2nd gear without any rev-matching. But when i engage the gear into 2nd, i feel a horrible jerk, its not a slight jerk, but it feels as if i hit the brakes really suddenly. Kind of hard to explain but the car seems to hesitate really badly when i downshift to 2nd gear. The RPMs arent even that high, i was shocked and I thought I stepped on the brakes but i didnt. Its very brief, and short and happens occasionally.

Anybody have any ideas what the problem might be? I know it sounds unclear but any help would be appreciated.. thanks.

Hmmmm being about as mechanically inclined as Britney spears is clean, I'm going to gracefully back out of this one but keep my face in here for suggestions.

I'd just take that shit to Acura to see if they can figure it out.... :laughing:
