It doesn't sound good. Check the tranny fluid level. Check it when you've driven a few miles & the fluid is warm. If you can't drive it. Check it cold. There still should be some fluid on the stick it just won't be the proper level.

On these particular vehicles (isszu made) there is no tranny dip or fill cap.... could it just be the fluid? I'm stressin out about a tranny overhaul...

If you haven't seen any Tranny fluid where you park, then a overhaul or replacement is a possibility. I guess my questions are: How many miles are on the Honda & when was the last time the tranny filter (screen) & fluid were replaced?

I had this very same thing happen to me about 6 months ago and it would come and go with a check engine light on or off. Get this it is your ERG and fuel Filters. Lol I changed mine out and have had no issues at all with this again. I thought it was the transfer case but mine was in very decent shape. Loss of power can be a laundry list of things. If you go through the motions of ok alternator is good, oil is good, your transmission has oil not transmission fluid like other cars by the way. Test out your vehicle in each gear hesitation is normal when cold so take it for a drive first then start to change gears allowing each to catch do not press the gas in 2nd and 3rd. Also notice that thumb button gets stuck well guess what it has a purpose so make sure that works. After that it's the fuel line and pump. So good luck!
