Hey guys I have an 07 RDX 55k miles on it and now all of the sudden I'm having problems.
Stopped at a stop light the other day I go to hit the gas and the car wont move.. finally after laying on the gas for like 10 seconds the car starts moving again.. This keeps happening often and is really starting to freak me out.
Also the other day while driving at low speed the car actually felt as it were back fireing while driving down the road almost as if whenever the transmission was shifting it would knock back like it wasn't going in gear or something..
Does anybody have any idea what the cause of these issues could be?
I am hoping to get the car into the dealership at some point this week but i also know the warrenty is up so I kinda want to have an idea of whats wrong before they start telling me its everything and I shell out a fortune fixing things that aren't actually the problem..

Why would you wait to take it back to the dealer when you are dealing with something that sounds as serious as you describe???
So...later that day when you stopped and it happened again, what were the conditions? How long had you been driving it? Hard or easy? Was it hot? Did it ever stall? Does it sound the same when you start it and turn it off? Has it happened again since? Were conditions similar? ETC...
I had the oil changed right after the first time it happened.. The mechanic drove the car around and didnt notice anything wrong.. later that day when i was stopped it happened again
Did you take it back to the mechanic-if not-time to do it and find out what they say.

When stopped at a light i accelerate normally and the rpm's move but only between 1 and 2 and then after laying on the gas for a few seconds the car will finally start to move but no harsh shifting at that time it just slowly starts to move normally again..
The harsh shifting was last week before this problem as i was driving down the road it felt like the car was jerking as i accelerate and decelerated...
And I called the mechanic that changed my oil back and i told him the problem was still happened and his only reply was take it to the dealership he wanted no part of it...
This is all my opinion. Please take this as a suggestion.
since, i can not physically see the car, I'm ruling the transmission out, as it doesnt sound to be the problem
it sounds like the car is in limp mode, and only allowing you to drive in the 1-2 RPM band.
there is either a bad sensor somewhere, or you have low oil pressure.
Please, physically check the oil dipstick. make sure the oil is inbetween the low and high markings.
if the oil checks out, your next best bet is to get it diagnosed from the dealer.
