  1. Fourth Generation MDX (2022+)
    Hey everyone, So I have had my mdx for about a year and 14k miles later, I have started hearing a clicking sound when I turn the steering wheel to the right. This sound is audible at lower speeds or when stationary and only happens when I turn right. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with...

    Thanks for your help in advance !! I just had the 3.5L engine in my 2006 MDX touring replaced. I had the vehicle up on ramps to change the oil as I always do, but this time I noticed that I must be missing a cover of some sort. I am sure it was there before or it would have stuck out like a...
  3. Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Hi all, New to forum and I'm in a bit of a panic here. Long story short my tyranny went out. I got a replacement from auto wrecker put it in and now everything seems seized up. Can't turn over the motor by hand or turn the fly wheel by hand. I was able to turn the flywheel while I was bolting...
  4. Problems
    So I was driving along, no problems and suddenly my entire dash lights up like a Christmas tree as you can see in the images. I have the electronic break light flashing, I can hear the transmission grinding and and even the gear 'D' on the gauge cluster is blinking. As I change gear, I hear a...

    Could a transmission specialist please advise me on this... 2003 MDX.. tranny works fine and shifts great at first, but after it warms up I lose all gears, everything seems like neutral. I can shut off the car, start it right back up and have normal gears again for a few miles, then have to...

  8. First Generation MDX (2001-2006)
    I’m looking at a 2004 MDX on Facebook Marketplace. 176,000 miles $4,000 1 owner I asked the seller if the car has had any transmission issues or work, or if it has been replaced. He said no issues or work on the transmission. This scares me because I’ve read horrible things about the 04 MDX...
  9. Second Generation MDX (2007-2013)
    Alright, so I’ve found a great MDX with <100k miles at a price I can stomach. I’m ready to pull the trigger here, then I came across sites with info about how MDXs are known for transmission failure, kind of across the board. I thought the 08s-09s were ok, but it looks like that may not be the...
  10. 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...

    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...
  12. 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...
  13. New Members Introduction
    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.
  17. 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...

I’ll be driving along n the transmission will disengage n the D5 light will go out briefly and when this happens there is a simultaneous clicking noise by the shifter. I was...

  20. 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...
