Hi. It’s a 2010 MDX...
Hi. It’s a 2010 MDX with about 80K miles. Under acceleration, it knocks or chugs. It doesn’t seem to go any slower, but I haven’t diagnosed the sound. Has done this since we purchased 18 months ago. Not running premium fuel.
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: Same starting, and I don’t think there has been a change in the mileage.
JA: What is the model of your '10 Acura?
Customer: MDX
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I've not really tried anything yet. I can do some repairs, but limited expertise. When I thought it was the transmission, I checked the fluid, which was quite low. Added transmission fluid, and thought problem was solved. I can’t say the noise really went away when I added the fluid.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: That’s it.

Ask Your Own Acura Question

are you getting a check engine light?

No check engine light. Just the gurgling or chugging noise under hard acceleration. It does it less when I put the car into sport mode, this generally keeps the RPM higher than it would be in drive.

ok, standby please

Looks like they issued a service bulletin for pinging. I tried to paste a paragraph here. It wouldn’t let me, but this is the site.

That’s it.

There are no TSB's for your vehicle on this. That is for the TSX model not yours

Here is the TSB that you need to have complied with concerning your issue

Thanks David. Do you think that TSX problem could be going on as well?

its a possibility, but its not a known issue on the MDX

Ask Your Own Acura Question

I would definitely be more concerned about having the first TSB done.

Great, thank you. Should this be covered by Acura if I bring to a dealership?

no, its not a recall. Its a bulletin at the owners expense

What Customers are Saying:

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.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
