Wow you should know the accords and tls had a recall on the j30 j32 ( 3.0 and 3.2 tecs) after 99 families after their tranny return lines was designed to small and the overheating causes the tranny to be slow and burn up... they are all notorious to be slipping and sluggish in 1st and 2nd gear... also the second gear drum is known to crack ...next thought ...is call 1 800 acura ask if there is recall on your tranny... next thought about your wacky gauges your vss ( vehicle speed sensor ) is mounted on the side bby the mount on the side of the tranny it is pulse width modulated which is an ac current to you TCM transmission contrl modual and is multiplexed along with your PCM computer or Ecu your car computers recieve signals from your 2 crankshaft sensors and your map sensor and your Tps sensor those two are on your throttle body...these give the signal to your car to know what gears to shift it recieves load throttle position and speed signals now on a honda like that to have those symptons i believe to go to the Vss is first to blame...i cant access the info from here but i can get you full diagnosis that you can do with a multimeter monday afternoon western time zone...it will save you thousand bucks on the things you will learn about your car and the test you will know and how easy some of the test are to do...
