Changing Fluids and doing self maintainence help - 2010 MDX

Can someone provide step by step instructions on how to change the most common fluids for a 2010 MDX? I am noob when it comes to working with cars, but I want to learn.

I need to know what tools to get, what fluids to get, from where to get them, , and a picture/video/cartoon would be really, really helpful.

- rear differential
- transmission fluid
- transfer case fluid
- regular oil change
- power steering fluid
- changing brake pads and brake fluid


Any info would be greatly appreciated. I am in NJ btw, and I would be willing to stop by if someone wants to show me any or all of these in person.

All of this info is readily available here and on other Internet sites, usually with excellent pictures. Best bet is to search for each particular operation as you will not find one source which covers all of the items you are asking about. Another good option is to buy a Factory Service Manual. Don't waste your money on aftermarket manuals, eg Haynes, as they often give generic and/or incorrect advice.

Yeah, like artbuc said, the information is already posted in this website, and Youtube is a great source for these things. You can save a ton of money by doing them yourself, but you probably do need someone to help out the first time, especially for something as important as the brakes.

Rear Diff Fluid Change

Since no one is helping, I figured I might as well share with others what I find.

best video in terms of clarity/quality I found about Rear Diff Change for the MDX:

What the heck do you expect people do to do for you? Want someone to come over to your house and do the work for you? Guys like you really tick me off.

Once you figure all this stuff out, do you mind posting step by step instructions with the tools needed and pictures or video? Make sure the pictures are taken by a 10 MP camera or HD video so they're clear. I'm in Houston btw if you're willing to fly here and show me all of these in person.

Were you geniuses never taught that if you don't have anything nice to say to keep your mouth shut? Or maybe that slipped because being "ticked" off at people on the internet was a priority...

Finally a thread with some entertainment value around here. 5-stars. When you slackers get a chance, can you google Kate Upton and post some pics in here?

How nice was this after several folks responded to your first request:

Gup said "Since no one is helping...." ?

Be honest with yourself. Asking someone to post what size wrench you need to install a drain valve is getting pretty ridicuous.

Changing Fluids and doing self maintainence help - 2010 MDX

I'm confused. This post is asking for help, the getting upset because the responses weren't fast enough, then posting a video of what you were looking for (not requested by anyone) and finally getting upset with everyone else? Wow.
