I had a 2002 Acura CL Type S and it started having shutters in tranny made car shake sometimes and not want to go like it should. I changed tranny fluid and filter then drove it about 150 miles then changed fluid and filter again and it ran great no problems with tranny anymore. If you do this you have got to change fluid and filter 2 times if you only do it once you may cause yourself big issues. The 1st time you change it then drive it the yuck inside will come off into fluid that's good as long as you do 2nd change if not the yuck can cause clogs and tranny may fail.

Sounds like the transmission needs a rebuild.

I don't see this as related to the console. This issue is usually caused by the idle air control valve. The valve may be bad or possibly the wiring. If it's the wiring, normally the computer will turn on the engine light.
You can check the valve operation using a common obd2 scanner in data mode.
Here is more info from autozone.com:
Engine idle speeds are controlled by the PCM through the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve mounted on the throttle body. The PCM sends voltage pulses to the IAC motor windings causing the IAC motor shaft and pintle to move in or out a given distance (number of steps) for each pulse (called counts). The movement of the pintle controls the airflow around the throttle plate, which in turn, controls engine idle speed. IAC valve pintle position counts can be observed using a scan tool. Zero counts correspond to a fully closed passage, while 140 counts or more corresponds to full flow.
Idle speed can be categorized in 2 ways: actual (controlled) idle speed and minimum idle speed. Controlled idle speed is obtained by the PCM positioning the IAC valve pintle. Resulting idle speed is determined by total air flow (IAC/passage + PCV + throttle valve + calibrated vacuum leaks). Controlled idle speed is specified at normal operating conditions, which consists of engine coolant at normal operating temperature, air conditioning compressor OFF, manual transaxle in neutral or automatic transaxle in D .
Minimum idle air speed is set at the factory with a stop screw. This setting allows a certain amount of air to bypass the throttle valves regardless of IAC valve pintle positioning. A combination of this air flow and IAC pintle positioning allows the PCM to control engine idle speed. During normal engine idle operation, the IAC valve pintle is positioned a calibrated number of steps (counts) from the seat. No adjustment is required during routine maintenance. Tampering with the minimum idle speed adjustment may result in premature failure of the IAC valve or improperly controlled engine idle operation.

TESTING The IAC can be monitored with an appropriate and Data-stream capable scan tool

idle control valve is either blocked or damaged this controls engine at low revs or idle, removing the pcv is just letting more air into the fuel system, but this will not be controlled airflow. this is the under side of the idel control valve
underside_with_valve-02v24stlnrwd2v1pzef3romw-4-5.jpg top centre is the wiring connection, this is what needs cleaning or replacing. they more than likely just needs a good clean, also clean the MAF and replace the air filter as if this part stops working there has to be a reason from the air intake. MAF use MAF cleaner only. idle valve clean with carb cleaner give it a good soaking, and shack out an flush again do this a few times and then shake it out then spray loads inside and leave to soak. for about an hour and shake out the rest a flush it one last time. and leave to dry. then refit. when no more dirt comes out.

Thermostat is bad or you are out of water.

1998 Acura CL | Answered on May 20, 2015

Yes, the thermostat can cause that if it's sticky. Replacing the thermostat is more labor intensive than the cost of the part.

The clicking noise is the starter relay, which sends power to the starter. sometimes the relay is mounted on the starter, sometimes on the fender. I would say the starter is bad and needs replaced. Sometimes you can get a bad starter from the factory. Just because its not that old, or even brand new, doesn't mean that its a good working starter. Replace that starter.
