    A.) It's a Honda, they always bog at low rpm's

    B.) The "smeel" is probably the clutch from trying to make it go faster in 1st.

    I think its that thing you get when you ride in an 8 cylinder car, but Ive never ridden in one of those so I have NO experience in what torque is.

    the answer is in there .....

    HONDAS HAVE NO TORQUE

    your acura is a honda

    therefore, it too has no torque

    hondas NEED RPMs to make power

    below 4k they have the balls of a female chihuahua

    and your clutch is probly fried too
