engine or tranny problems??

hey yall,
so i do have a prelude but its away for the winter so i'm driving my s**tbox civic for the next few months. well its still a honda so its not that bad... it just has 311000 km's on it.
anyways sometimes when i accelerate from a stand still the engine has to work really hard to pull the car. its almost as if the car is trying to accelerate in 3rd or 4th gear almost. thats what it kind of sounds like and feels like. but it is in 1st or second cause i manually shift down to D2 sometimes and it doesn't change. so when its doing this i sometimes shift into neutral and the rpm's rev right up. so i'm thinking that the engine is fine. but usually when a transmission is going, it slips which would produce lots of rpm but little movement on the ground. so what in the heck is going on? is there a possible fuel delivery problem? or maybe something else is losing power somewhere else? i'm not sure if i'm explaining this well enough for yall so feel free to ask me questions. thanks!

Yeah sounds like your auto tranny is failing.
