  1. Unknown part mounted on the transmission

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Part of the trans breather system.
  2. Water problem

    Problems
    The drain tube for the evaporator box must be clogged.. So if you use the A/C it will eventually overflow.
  3. 2016 MDX Brake Issue

    Third Generation MDX (2014-Present)
    The right term is "Riding the brakes" and brake fade and heat warp are common with people that likes to ride the brakes so in a way the dealer is right... But is the dealer correct? do you ride the brakes?
  4. engine oil capacity

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    All Hondas are meant to be measured when the engine is HOT! this is because oil circulates and gets stuck on the sides of the heads and block this means the oil level will drop as opposed when cold when the oil has time to drip down and artificially rise the oil level…. Never check the oil level...
  5. Clunk in rear?

    First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    Check the obvious start with the rear sway bar bushings and sway links... Then shock absorbers.
  6. intake manifold runner control valve

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    The IMRC is a little valve that sits in the Intake Manifold is main purpose is to equalize the pressure between both sets of runners inside the intake manifold to gain more power at high engine RPM... In low engine rpm the valve closes to gain Low end Torque. The motor is located at the top...
  7. AC Inverter Died :/

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Will wait for your report! if you end up changing it and everything suddenly starts working then it really was the unit... It would be a bummer if you spend the cash only the find the fuse still blowing.
  8. Upgrade Acura MDX 2008!?

    Problems
    It should be possible the 2013 is just a refresh…
  9. AC Inverter Died :/

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    ^ That is exactly what is happening to mine! as soon as you open the key the fuse blows! I think I used it once when I got the car and it never worked again... The thing looks flawlessly on the inside I reckon It might not even be the unit itself but something else, There is definitely a short...
  10. 2011 MDX, is it possible to add the navigation system from base version?

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    The NAV in the Tech is nothing to write home about. Get a standalone GPS with cool 3d graphics and be done with it… I have a Tech and I never use the NAV due to the outdated graphics and maps, I also live in México so the full North American maps in my TomTom GO600 have been a life saver..
  11. AC Inverter Died :/

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I didn´t fix it, It kept blowing fuses every time I tried and Since I rarely used it in the first place I just let it be. The inverter is in the center console beneath the coin tray.. You pop one of the side covers (drivers is easier) and you will see it in front of the shifter module.
  12. Pedal commander

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    The acceleration is the same as without the DBW lag… The DBW Add-on simply removes the lag of the pedal it doesnt add any power that what already has in the X.
  13. 2008 MDX Rattle on Accelerating

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    IIRC there was a TSB for the intermediate shaft Heat Shield causing rattle?
  14. 2010 mdx tech, keyfob, lock buttons, pwr tailgate, nav screen and driver memory all not working

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    IMO I dont think the sub harness can affect the NAV as there is nothing concerning the NAV connected to that harness.. That might be a separate issue.
  15. 2010 mdx tech, keyfob, lock buttons, pwr tailgate, nav screen and driver memory all not working

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    You can try cycling the door between open and closed to see if it is the driver door sub harness… Sometimes putting the door at a certain angle makes the wires contact and work.
  16. 2006 mdx Ac stop working, fan blowing

    First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    If relay is good and there is power to the Clutch Stator then check for clutch air gap and freon charge. If both of them are ok then you need a new Clutch Stator.
  17. intake manifold runner control valve

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Damn never seen one go bad? But in any case its a super easy DIY fix if you want to save up on labor... Labor on this should not go more than 0.30hour if they wanna squeeze you out they will charge 1hour for it.
  18. WEAREVER Brake Pads

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Akebono pads which is the OEM Supplier are simply average as they are designed to LAST, LIFESPAN is their priority. They dont have the bite of the Wearevers and have sub-par brake fade.. To 90% of the people using OEM pads are non-issues since they are not likely to push the pads too far they...
  19. WEAREVER Brake Pads

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I bought a second set after the original... They are pretty good pads overall but they are too noisy when hot, Driving around Tijuana (Same road elevation changes as San Francisco) and they start to make some irritating metallic squeak sounds, It goes away once they cool down.. And brake fade...
  20. 2013 Base Does it use Canbus light bulbs

    Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I converted mine to FULL LEDs… Didn´t have a single issue, They are all Philips LEDs except for the 2 courtesy ones in the tailgate.
