I checked to see how much parts will cost, and to my surprise, parts totaled just over $200. I can't justify pay over $1400 in labor cost alone...these dealerships are ridiculous with these labor costs.

I have a separate thread on this board about it. I did a leakdown test and did not find anything. So I decided to replace the radiator first and then do a CO2 test. It cost me about $500 in parts (all hoses, thermostat, temp sender, Honda radiator fluid) and now everything is running fine. I've driven up the Camarillo grade at over 100* outside with the AC going and I got no heat problems. More importantly, no CO2 is showing in the test.

I now think the dealer was completely lying or totally incompetent. Now that I've done the CO2 test, I can't remotely see how they could do the test with a cracked, empty radiator.

Here's to another 100,000 miles!

Exactly !! They can't do a co2 on a empty radiator . That's your first clue that there just trying to rob you !Glad your catching on to there game for future problems ! They probably seen a over heating reliable MDX and felt the need to just throw it in the back
Without checking it and just tell you that your head gasket is blown so you can trade for a less reliable brand new Honda/Acura and a bunch of payments.....never bother with the dealer unless it's absolutely must is my opinion

Glad your MDX is fine though !! Don't just expect a 100k miles expect another 200k-300k as this high mileage forum isn't a good measure of the MDX durability ......think I'm lying CHECK OUT THIS NEAR MILLION MILE MDX... ecspecially 2001-2002 j35a3 seeing as there's Litterally no reported head gasket or internal failures reported on the first two years of MDX ...........https://www.google.com/amp/amp.timei...n%3fsource=dam

My 2001 has just over 300K. Lost the power steering over the past weekend. It has a few blemishes, drivers seat cushion leather ripped, passenger side second row seat doesn't like to collapse flat.

Our 05 had a torque converter fail at 160K. Had a leak from the trans. cooler that was not visible externally. Swapped the trans. and TC with a used unit. We now have over 210K with no other issues. This is NOT a repair that the average DIYer would want to undertake so it would be inherently\prohibitivly expensive! As. It was, it cost me about $1100 and I am a master mechanic with my own facilities! Other than that the vehicle has given outstanding service and is a dream to drive!
