Don't worry, i'm a person of my word..I will leave soon as this ordeal is over..

The facts is none of you would never wrench on your own vehicle, except a few, the rest...ummmmm not going to say..

"if you can afford a $55k vehicle (when it was new), why do you even ask. Just go get it done!

I'm looking at the forums, Nothing but question...but when there someone willing to contribute, throw that person down the bus and question them..

Hey, remember visitor come and go ..what special contents that forum have that make visitor stay..not bunch of "cry babies' that ask question Only..

Please reconsider.

Well said George.
SuperTech, thanks again for all of your assistance and contributions to the site.

Obviously, your claim to go away was an empty (and now broken) promise.

Remember the consequence of talking crap when someone is not present to defend themself.

Karma is a B*tch

Sigh. Thanks to everyone for the warm sendoff. Guess I can't stay away just quite yet till this guy makes just a bigger ass out of himself a bit more.

Actually what trigger my harsh reply was " I need to hire you" In a way, i find that insulting...and that's how it started..

Anyway, Since Supertech is not present here to defend himself, I cannot talk about him anymore.

Still didn't stop you from berating me some more a little over an hour later....

You don't have to remind how much dealership charges, and how it work..this whole ordeal is not about that.

actually mechanic at dealership go online forum learn how to fix car, learn tips and trick that factory school don't teach them...

the most knowledgeable guys are those work for independent shop, know how to work on vast car makes and models each and everyday..

To see someone claim them-self "supertech" and think he above everyone else, deserve a spanking..
"I need to hire you" was, yes...a bit of a backhanded compliment since I absolutely don't believe you about your labor time. How is it that I have been in Acura dealers since the MDX came out a dozen years ago, and I have never ever heard of a tech doing the transmission R&R as fast as you claim (3.5hrs)? And I have more of a data pool that just me, my "heavy line tech", or even my entire dealership. I remember years ago when we were banging transmissions out almost daily, I asked my DPSM (and he's a guy who sees thousands of warranty claims) what's the fastest he's seen that job go in. And I quote, "nobody can do it faster than 5."

So who's the liar?

You...a supposed former Honda dealer tech who works at a small shop which doesn't have all the specific fixtures and special tools that dealers have to do that job?

Or me...an active dealer tech who has a pool of hundreds of other techs at dealers all around the Bay Area to base information on?

I dunno. Maybe they passed out speed/crack/meth at your dealer to make everyone so superhumanly fast. But in the real world...nope it's a 5+ hours job for an experienced tech. Maybe 2 days for an inexperienced one. And pretty frigging impossible for someone in their driveway.

You said, don't say anything is impossible unless I've done it myself. Ya know...I bet if you hit it juuuuusssst right, you could survive a jump off the god damn Golden Gate Bridge. But, I'm gonna forego the trying it myself part and just go ahead say that's impossible too.

As I said, your DIY thread with the pictures was a good idea. And it sure was nice of you to take all those pictures. But also as I said, it's just not something most anyone should do at home. If you really want to do DIY walkthrough, do it like most of these folks would be doing it...without your lift and without your transmission jack. Where's the pictures of that one...since you've done it in a driveway haven't you?

Credibility is a pretty important thing on the internet. As I said, everyone can come off as an expert. But most smart folks take everything they read on internet forums with a big grain of salt. But when you come in here, say you own a shop, and then post pictures...you seem more credible than the average guy.

So maybe someone sees your thread and thinks, "well shoot he made it sound easy! I'll go ahead and do that job this weekend on my MDX. I'll save thousanads!" Then they try it, and get stuck. Or break something. Or worse, get injured.

I jumped in your thread to more or less call you on bullsh*t, so hopefully my credibility might convince someone thinking about tackling that job to second guess you...which they should.




Aaaaand once more, let me clear up some disinformation before it sticks with anyone. The "most knowledgeable guys are those that work for independent shop" is true...and also not true. BTW, I have worked for (and managed) indies in my 15+ year professional career along with working for dealers...and not just Acura (I'm also a Master Certified GM technician and was a team leader at Cadillac since you just love to see me brag about my acomplishments). Yes a good tech at an independent shop will have knowledge of how other manufacturers do things, maybe some diesel, maybe some EV, whatever. But they'll never truly be great at any one brand, unless their previous gig was at a dealer for that brand. In the context of what relates to what this forum is interested in , the Acura MDX, I can not think of anyone outside of a factory engineer who will be more familiar with and expert in that vehicle (or any other Acura) that someone who is actively serving at a dealership. Tell me, oh great independent shop more knowledgeable guy...I'm already certified to repair the 2014 Acura RLX. I PDIed the first two at my shop. I know everything about all the new technology it has, including the Precision All Wheel Steer and direct injection. I've put quite a bit of miles on one already and I know what normal is and what broken is. You even seen one in person yet?

So while I don't think I quite know "everything" about the MDX, I'm 100% sure that I know more that you about the MDX. If that comes off as being "above everyone else" then you know what? Good! As far as I'm concerned, my word should be taken as gospel compared to anyone else. Including you. If I need to be "spanked" for that.....well. That's another conversation. I'm 6'4" 240lbs, and I can be at your shop door in five minutes pal. Sure you wanna go down that road?

New guy posts one of the most well-constructed DIY-type posts I’ve ever seen on this forum (I perform ALL maintenance on the wife’s 2010 MDX btw), and a seasoned forum member gets a craw and picks on exaggerated maintenance times. Well, if there’s one thing you can always count on, it’s exaggeration on a car forum, whether it be trap times, gas mileage, or maintenance times (i.e., it only took me 5 minutes to change my oil, blah, blah; and then, the internet brawl begins). I say so what, new guy exaggerates on a repair time. That post was otherwise outstanding. You owe the new guy an apology or it truly is time for you to go. No offense. Been there and done what you are doing, and have left car forums after making thousands of posts myself. Just giving you some perspective on this one. FWIW, I have always appreciated your contributions to the forum. But please rethink or move on.

SuperTech versus HTL!

Both are tremendously informative, but both are with egos of the Titans.

Both are too quick to take offense.

I have benefitted a lot from both, and I will be sorry to see either one go away, but that's their prerogative, not ours.

Anyone else taking sides is just adding fuel to the fire. Those who said things like "why don't you go away" and then accuse HTL of being an internet bully, well, you need to take a good look in the mirror - Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle!

This thread needs to be closed before fistfights begin.

I'm not violent person...willing to peace talk if the other party agree. If he decide to bring the heat to my door step..violent is necessary in order to defend myself.

Based on your writing style, I'm reasonably confident that English wasn't your first language. And I have no problems with foreigners before anyone plays the "you a racist" card. The point is...I'm not sure what country you are from, though I'm pretty sure this applies there too...but in this country; a grown man does not say another grown man "needs to be spanked" unless A-you're trying to start a fight or B-you're a gay man and it's a sexual thing.

Those are the only two reactions there is for that situation. So which is it? If it's the latter...I'm not your type. And if I was, even sight unseen, I'm sure I could do better.

And you're sure I work for Stevens Creek (hasn't been called that in years BTW)? There's about half a dozen Acura dealers within reasonable commute range. So sure that it's Autowest Acura, or just want to keep spewing half cocked information with every post?

Have you missed the part where I said that you could potentially be seriously injured trying to do a transmission removal at home following his DIY post?

The exaggeration about labor times was his attempt to discredit me because I was trying to discredit him. Which is exactly why I posted pictures of the labor op times to unequivocally prove that my times are the actual facts of the matter and not guy two guys lying about who caught the biggest fish at the lake.

Yes I know exaggeration is rampant on the Internet where anonymity pretty much protects people from losing face if they get caught in a lie. Goes back to what I've said about credibility. Whether HTL stays or goes too, doesn't matter for him much anymore. He may as well delete his account and leave because I've sullied it with this "scandal" right off the bat...so he can never really give much advice to anyone who's seen this go down anymore and really be taken seriously. Might as well just good off and post meme pictures or "lol" at posts all day now.

And when I claim trap speeds....I already know that people don't believe it. So when I do, I post a picture of the timeslip to prove it.

Ok guys I think that's enough. Again if you don't agree with a persons technique it's understandable, also if you put your input in. But when it comes down to personal attacks that's where the line has to be drawn. With that another thread comes to a close. Both parties do not start a new thread in re to this. Put each other on your ignore list and leave it be.
