Default 95 civic ex coupe acceleration problem

Hello all I got a 95 civic ex coupe with a d16z6 engine and automatic transmission I have a problem when I try to accelerate the car will barely even move and when I try to press the gas all the down it still barley moves until it reaches a certain rpm then it drives but right when I ease off the gas it does it again so no matter what it does that and it shifts hard WHEN it does shift.. can anybody help me out with this problem please? Someone said that its the automatic transmission

"someone" might know what they're talking about...
Do the RPMs climb in neutral like they should? If so it's more than likely a trans issue

Is it idling rough or misfiring?

I'm gonna tell you like this. Honda auto transmissions of the 92-00 suck. They all slip, hard shifts etc. I had a Ls integra with a auto transmission. It did the same exact thing, and anybody I knew with a auto civic. I drained tranny fluid, did what I could nothing helped. Untill I sold the car because of that spite fact. Any manual 92-00 civic can put down more power than a auto transmission civic. Excluding accords, preludes.


But short answer is, you're gonna need a new transmission/and or torque converter.

True statement although he mentioned that it doesn't climb rpm's in neutral.

Just because it doesn't climb rpms in netrual doesn't mean the trans isn't bad. This is why I said and or torque converter.
