Why????? why did you waste your time and money to go to AAMCO?..
ughh.. Extended Warranty / Service Contract? Don't trust in any extended warranty contract other than American Honda otherwise you could seriously be wasting your money on aggrevation and empty promises. Most ext. warranty contracts don't cover diagnostic fees and if they find out this was a pre-existing problem.. sorry..
Give us more details on your problem. Answer IHC's questions.. Last time I heard a whine from the tranny it was a t/c (torque converter). What gears do you hear the whine? Do you feel a lag when you open up the throttle?
I'm jumping ship on this one.. best advice I can give is give us more details and if you take the car to a shop.. seek a reputable honda / acura mechanic / shop or a reputable transmission shop that does honest work and will be straight up with you. Acura will swap your tranny for around $3.5k.. gulp.
