  1. Transmission Problems
    I was driving my 06 MDX on the highway and noticed a faint burning smell, smoke, and revving at 5k rpm. I looked under the hood and saw a fluid splattered around the right side of the engine and where the transmission fluid goes. Is my transmission dead? Just fixed oil leak, new tires and...
  2. First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    Torque converter clutch issue related to this error seems to be fairly common but I don't see any drill downs in this or other forums. I can see stories how triple flush and solenoid replacement made the issue go away for a week or 2 but not the real diagnostics, let alone solution. My 2003 X...
  3. Third Generation MDX (2014-2020)
    Has anyone pulled the transmission in a 14+? My 2014 regularly will not go into park or drive properly... car acts like it is in neutral. The dealer is telling me I need a new transmission. I'd rather pull it myself and bring it to AAMCO for rebuild to save money on labor. Unfortunately, I can't...

    Just bought an 04 MDX with 172K on it “ as is” and it came with lots of problems. This one I can’t figure out. The transmission had almost 2 quarts more in it and I drained it to spec. Did a drain and fill and it seemed to work but the check engine light came back. It goes out after a few days...

Despite taking a long test drive, as soon as i took it off the lot, I started experiencing transmission issues: 1) Jerking while coming to a stop 2) Thuds and noise in the cabin when switching from park to drive etc 3) Car stopped reversing 4) Engine would...

    Hi All, I purchased the 2016 MDX couple of days ago. While test driving, I didnt feel any transmission jerk or lag but after bringing it home, I am feeling lots of jerks and lags. I have read in some other posts about some software update. Will this fix this transmission issue? please help.
  8. Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I have a 2011 MDX with 158k miles on it. Serviced regularly - timing belt change, water pump, check and fill fluid levels, needed repairs, etc... And 10k miles ago a mechanic added 4 quarts of tranny fluid during a 150k mile service. They charged for 4 quarts, but my understanding is that this...

  11. Third Generation MDX (2014-2020)
    HI everyone. I've just purchased a 2017 MDX and am not happy with the way the transmission is performing. I'm aware of some the issues with the 9 speed. I'm going to do a drain and fill x3 and see if that helps at all. Does anyone use any 3rd party fluid or is the OEM ATF TYPE 3.1 the one to go...
  12. Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    I just fixed the P0847 error that came up in my 2008 MDX so I'll do a quick writeup on what I did. A few months ago I got this error and even though it's the 3rd clutch switch, I lost my 5th gear. I reset the code and the error didn't come up again. Just recently the error reappeared and this...
  13. Transmission Problems
    I got a rebuilt transmission put in my 2002 MDX in October last year. As soon as it was put in the mileage went from 19MPG (12L/100km) to 13MPG (18L/100km). Then in January I needed a new Fuel Pump and the mileage then changed to 17MPG (14L/100km). Also it still kind of kicks into a lower gear...
  14. First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    I believe my 2002 MDX Touring (198K miles) has experienced an unusual transmission failure and I'm not sure if its repairable (other than $$$ replacement). Searched forum; nothing like this noted. I'm looking to upgrade to newer MDX but am trying to get this 2002 drive-able for a trade-in (or...
  15. First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    I have a 2005 MDX premium package (MDKA Trans). I’ve not had trouble at all from my current transmission, using nothing but Honda ATF in the stock configuration. My concern is that I’ve now crossed the 200k mile mark and I’m sure it’s death is not far away. I plan to buy another good used unit...

    Hi There, Happy Holiday! I recently purchased a 2017 SH-AWD tech mdx, the transmission shifts between 1-2 and 2-3 is almost always harsh, it is more noticeable when cold start. I did saw many posts 2 years ago, some forks had the same issue, I am wondering if there was any solution for such issue?
