  1. 07 MDX. Headlight issues.. Any ideas??

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    If you are experiencing a significant decrease in brightness with the same original new bulbs, that's likely the igniter or ballast that you have a problem with. I would get a specialist's opinion before replacing them as they are not cheap at all.
  2. Does this tire is fixable?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Nope. Get another used non punctured tire.
  3. 2008 valve cover

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    If you wait for another week until next Friday, you can use my detailed Valve Adjustment video I'm in the middle of editing right now. It includes the complete replacement: valve covers, spark plug tube seals, new grommets, intake manifold gasket, intake manifold cover gasket and TB gasket.
  4. Radio works but clock won't set, no other inputs work

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    That's weird. Can you turn on the audio menu at all? XM? Can you load a disc? I don't remember exactly, but it might trigger the system to switch to CD. I would just try and disconnect the battery again for 10 minutes. Here's how you get to the secret menu:
  5. Radio works but clock won't set, no other inputs work

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Does your screen come on? Can you use navigation? Can you get into the secret menu?
  6. Snapped rear coil spring and cost question

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I would replace both of the springs with OEM ones. They cost 60 bucks a pop.
  7. Removing oil pump and do the reseal

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Since you have to take the TB off for this, this is usually done along with the TB change. So you just replace the TB components first, then put the engine mount back through the new TB, but not install the TB yet (let it sit on top of the engine), put the side mount back. Now you can remove...
  8. Blown Tube Seal

    General Discussions
    What's so terrible here? A set of these costs about 10 bucks.
  9. Bought a new-to-me beater DD MDX

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Interesting! I thought all second gen MDXs have VTEC both on intake and exhaust. Is this not the case?
  10. Bought a new-to-me beater DD MDX

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Just look at your dipstick within a couple of minutes after shutting off a fully warmed up engine and make sure the level where it's supposed to be: in the middle between lower and upper marks. Do the same in about 500 miles and then in another 500 miles. Obviously, if the level stays the same...
  11. DIY: Adjusting Valves in Acura MDX

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    No, only the intake manifold one is metal, the cover gasket is orange rubber. Weird! I got no problem buying them directly from Acura in Canada just a couple months ago. May be they replaced it with a new kit? Just ask your local dealer, they should be able to help you out. We don't have the...

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Thank you for your detailed perspective on this, I appreciate it!
  13. Bought a new-to-me beater DD MDX

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    That's a great write up! I'm quite curious as to how bad it is to install new pistons and piston rings into the old head without any sort of honing the bores. With the cylinders likely already having developed some form of ellipsoid, even if it's minor, what would the effectiveness of the new...

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Here you go (this is for pre-face lift, so 2007-2009): Valve cover gasket kit ( you need 2, one for each cover, includes cover gasket, spark plug tube seals and new bolt grommets): 12030-RYE-A01 Intake manifold gasket: 17105-RCJ-A01 Intake manifold cover gasket: 17146-R70-A01 Throttle body...
  15. What wheels from other mdx's will fit the 2010 mdx?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    You have to also consider why you need winter tires. May be you live in a place where it snows all the time and you are driving in snow mostly in winter. Then the narrow tire advice applies. However if you are driving in the city where the snow gets plowed quickly and effectively, your best...
  16. Fumoto oil drain valve

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    Wow, I didn't know third get takes more than a quart than the second gen. I thought the engine is smaller, how come?
  17. Cost to replace the rear main seal at the dealer?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Dude has been a mechanic for 50 years, he is also a very frugal person, he is advertiser friendly, his A- grade Youtube channel gets him over 40 million views monthly translating roughly to about a two million dollars in annual revenue in just ads. He is basically a multi-millioner by this...
  18. Cost to replace the rear main seal at the dealer?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    No, Toyota just happens to be the #1 car manufacturer in the world, so he advocates for it mostly. But he is not opposed to the truth. For example, he admits that the Civic is very good and better than Toyota's competition.
  19. Is a later year back up camera adaptable to a 2008. I' wondering if just changing the camera would provide better resolution.

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Perhaps there's something wrong with your camera. My 2008 camera is very clear, including night time. Not sure if you can purchase a similar or better quality camera for a reasonable amount of money. But please do let us know if you find one. P.S. 2010+ models camera is actually reportedly...
  20. what does "check tpms system" light mean?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Good timing! Will save you some money for additional rebalancing!
