Customer Question
Why does my mdx...

Why does my mdx 07 say check emissions and engine idiot lite stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on constantly. I put injector cleaner in on a full tank and put RPX in it. Dam thing has California low emmisions sticker

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your California yourself? What have you tried so far?

Its an Acura. Trying anything I know. Is there a water condensing purge valve in the undercarriage that may send false signal.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really. this piece of shit navigation is screwd and the disk does not work, found no PC card in the box below the drivers seat. what does it 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.

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

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.
