This video is more than 1 hour long and seems very detailed. Just wondering whether anyone has watched this video and how similar the Pilot is to our MDX?
Thanks a lot!

Yes, watched a couple times. This guy is a true pro. Very applicable.
Every single Honda J Series Timing Belt procedure is the same... The video from Eric O. Is Maintenance Manual spot on, Except the part where he cuts the t belt.
You can watch any video from a TL, Accord, Odyssey, Ridgeline, Pilot, TSX, RL, Etc and they will all be true for the MDX.
IMO, Eric the car guy is a total hack and I do not waste my time watching his nonsense. I’m pretty familiar with Toyota’s and would not agree that replacing oil pump and cam seals is common, quite to the contrary.Do u want to edit your post a bit? Don’t know what u want to say.
I was looking forward to seeing how to replace crank and cam seals. Kind of disappointed. Also he didn’t replace oil pump and seals. This is commonly done on Toyota. Not sure about Honda.
Also when he tested the engine he left the power steering stuff unhooked. Isn’t it going to create a mess?
The part about taking engine mount off is quite unexpected to me at least. Maybe this is common for Honda V6. Taking the ps stuff apart is also quite unpleasant. Really hate to deal with fluids.
He also didn’t mention properly draining coolant in the engine block. The water pump location is quite high. There should be additional coolant down there.
Cutting the t belt is fine for him. But it would be nice to see the book way of doing it. Maybe one day it will be relevant.
