So, I wasn't having any problems then my car sat for 2 days after Christmas and when I drove it home (yesterday) the problem suddenly began. It started with a clunking noise and a bit of vibration when accelerating in 4th and 5th. Then today after driving the car for 10 minutes the vibration got worse and the noise in much louder. This is now happening in all gears between 2k & 3k rpm and lessens to a fine vibration at higher speeds. Again, this only happens during acceleration. If the car is in neutral it wont happen, I can rev the engine and no noise. The clutch seems to be working fine, no problems with shifting the engine sounds normal but when I speed up its a very loud clunk and the vibration almost feels like something hitting the firewall. Other than that nothing is wrong with the car that I'm aware of other than an exhaust leak that developed early last week. I'm about to get under the car but I'd thought I'd post and see if I can get some feedback any input is very much appreciated. Thanks.

I recommending checking your ignition coil as there is most likely a hairline crack that is allowing moisture to get in. Take a hair dryer and blow it on the coil for several minutes after you've washed your car and if it starts, then it's definitely the coil... it's very common
Sorry to inform you that it sounds like your transmission needs servicing. Check the fluid levels and replenish if level is down. If after doing this,the car still wont shift properly or smoothly,,then you will have to take the car into a transmission mechanic.
I finally just had this fixed on my 1992 Integra, after dealing with it the past year or
so (same problem, and only in cold weather). They replaced the shifter switch (parts and labor
cost me $150), and it's been fine ever since, I'm very happy to say!
