Question about 2002 Honda Accord
If the lunge is a problem with the first shift(1st-2nd)then you are most likely at the beginning of the end.these transmissions develope small problems that create debris and clogs the filter.You may not notice anything until pressure drops in the transmission and the second clutches are damaged and by then it is too late.the filter is not a servicable item without disassembly of the transmission.If the surge is not a shift problem then it is most likely not a transmission issue but a engine drivability problem.You need to start with have the system scanned for codes at a repair shop so you can have some idea which direction to go in.Good luck!

If you are saying it 'bangs' into gear if you give it any kind of aggressive petal on launch, you might have the beginnings of trans issues that might get expensive-has there been any maintenance done on this car, like a trans service where you drained the trans fluid and replaced the filter?(if applicable). If not, you should do this, as the symptoms you point to indicate a problem with a plugged or dirty valve body. Hondas use a specific trans fluid so make sure you buy it.

Thanks for choosing FIxYa and welcome to the sight. Usually, this could be a sign of low transmission fluid. Have you checked to make sure the transmission is not leaking fluid and the level is correct? Has it been awhile since you changed the transmission filter? If it always happens at low speeds, it may be fuel related or it could be a vacuum leak. A simple leak can cause the car to act up. Then again, the transmission may be damaged and need worked on.

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral safety switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The park/neutral safety switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to de-energize. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the contacts in the neutral safety switch open and the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
