i went to local honda dealer ship and stated that it was internal transmission failure and needs to be replaced. is that true?

 

Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 10 years ago

that does not sound right i have not heard of that ? i work at acura and have yet to hear that.

when the failure happened was the a/c on and was this at night or day.

im wondering if the alternator had a spike. did they scan the computer for codes ?

I think the alternator might has a spike it was suggested by toll truck driver and probable honda service scanned the computer for codes .. all i know is, they recommanded to replace transmiision and recheck..

 

 

Mechanic for Acura: MASTER TECH, Acura Technician replied 10 years ago

well i would recommend you drive the vehicle and keep an eye on it. if the problem persists then contact acura and set up a apt to see what is going on.

the 05 mdx we don't have a lot of problems with the 04 and earlier we do.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
