Mdx Has A Trans Filter!!!

For some reason Honda dealers are clueless on this. Dealers say (and are told by Honda) my 05 Ody "has no filter" and 04 MDX "has no filter". This is False, those in the Ody forum have changed their http://www.odyclub.com/forums/showth...threadid=37268 filters.

The 01-02 MDX has a canister Filter #25450-P7W-003

The 03-07 MDX has a cartridge filter #25450-P4V-013

Confirm this if you plan to service your MDX. Good luck trying to find a dealer to do it, they state that there is no serviceable filter.

Once I change mine, I am going to put in a Magnafine inline filter that gets a yearly change and never change the stock filter again.

they are not hard to change, i would alot about an hour to do it, you will have to take alot of stuff off to get to it.

and yes the dealer will do it, all you have to do is ask. (mine will anyway)

I am just wondering, why the maintenance schedule doesn't even mention this filter? I found the schematics for 03, I think item 3 is the filter. 25450-P4V-013.

That is the correct schematic for 03-07 and 05-06 Ody. It is posted in the link I listed in the very first post with a better view of the filter in a reverse view. You pose the same question posed on the ody forum and no one seems to know. the dealers insist that a filter does not exist.

On a 2003 (thru 2006) MDX it appears that the transmission filter is internal to the transmission, and requires the transmission be removed and disassembled to change the filter. In my opinion, this is terrible "engineering". Which means when your transmission cooler blows...which is inside the radiator (which is bad engineering too), and you want to flush out the transmission fluid and change the filter...you now have to remove the transmssion to change a simple filter, that used to be externally replaceable on earlier models. It also appears to be externally replaceable on the Oddysey for all model years.

I'm bring back an old thread here but I think AustinFranklin is right. I have spent the last 2 days looking for the mysterious filter in my 05 and failed. According to the diagram, the Odyssey and Pilot have different trannys than the 03 to 06 MDX. If you look at the Honda transmission, the filter is on the tail end of the transmission while the Acura tranny is on the engine side. I think it's bury between torque converter case and the transmission case.

You have me questioning this now too. I'll take a hard look at mine and see if I can spot it since I keep saying I am going to do it soon. I just looked for the part again and I'm coming up with this strainer for my 2006. That would probably be the intake in the pan??

Part 3 and 19.
J35A5, those are the right parts...but look at the diagram carefully. Those parts appear to be accessable from INSIDE the transmission.

Now, if they are externally accessable, then that's great (and belive me, I'd LOVE to be wrong)...but so far, no one has been able to find them accessable from the outside. I have not pulled the transmission out, and taken it apart, to check if the filter is actually inside either, so...I could still be wrong.

The 2002 and earlier, had an external filter that was near the filler. Check the diagrams for the 2002.

Best Regards,

Austin

I agree with you 100%. I actually spend 2 days looking for this filter and fail. I think it sits between the transmission and the bell housing. I am just like you...haven't had a chance to take it apart but pretty sure it can't be change from the outside.

I am a very loyal Honda/Acura Customer but man...y would anyone do this?
