I know, I know...
After my transmission was replaced, by the dealership, I had two sources of whining (besides me, that would be three).
The new trany whined in 1st and 2nd gears. It got better over time ~50K miles.
They add a external ATF filter in-line with the cooler lines, when the trany gets replace under warranty. The filter fills with crud in, 20-30K miles, and as it does, it goes into by-pass, this makes noise. There is a Acura TSB here somewhere.
Bottom line replace the filter. The filter dose not exist parts list, exploded view, for the car. Search here for the Honda part number, or replace it with the a Magnefine filter. Make sure its installed in the correct direction. Good luck..
