I have a 1994 Acura Integra LS automatic with about 175k miles. I've
noticed that something occurs when I'm cruising in the higher speeds.
When I'm going about 70mph the RPMs are roughly 3000. When I hit the
gas to speed up to 75 or so, the RPMs sometimes (not always)
by around 200 RPMs . Then it will jump back up to the
correct higher RPM a few seconds later. Please note that I'm not
hitting the gas hard enough for the transmission to gear down when
this happens. At first I thought that it was just the RPM gauge
behaving strangely. But, after doing this a number of times, I can
actually feel the engine losing the RPMs ever so slightly. I can't
seem to recreate this issue in lower speeds, however.
Any ideas what could be causing this and how to possibly fix it?
