    I just bought a 2004 honda civic and have noticed the following problem....

    When the engine is cold (car has not been run for several hours) and i first
    accellerate from a complete stop, the car will accelerate for a second,
    seems to loose power and hesitate for about a second, and then resumes
    normal acceleration. After a minute or 2 of driving (once the car gets
    warm) the problem goes away. Honda says nothing is wrong with the car, but
    i think there is and it is really pissing me off

  2. You should take your car immediately to a dealer. They are the only ones who
    are experienced enough to be able to deal with this problem.

    What kind of transmission?

    This sounds like the tranny problem I had with a 1999 Acura, the auto
    transmission needed a flush, as it turns out.

    OTOH, it happened all the time, not just when cold, but only when I
    accelerated hard. And come to think of it, it seldom happened from a
    complete stop, mostly happened when trying to pass from a rolling
