honda prelude 2.2vtech auto gearbox

Hiya Ive recently bought a 2.2 vtech prelude 1997 but am having problems with the autobox, when its cold it seems to slip really bad when i accelerate, when its warm it doesnt seem to be as bad but still does
it, if i change gears manually it seems to be 3rd and 4th gear which is where the problem lies is this a common fault or something that is easily fixed or am i looking towards a big problem? Danny

The automatic in the Prelude has been a problematic transmission for Honda. You probably need a new one or a rebuild.
