this code is for a lock up control solenoid in the transmission. if you have a health issue and you choose to ignore your doctor's advise, it's your life. similar with your MDX. you could get a second opinion from a shop that has lots of Acura experience or since you think it runs good, just drive it until it dies. at some point, everybody needs to develop a relationship with whoever takes care of their car. do they trust him? is he honest? is he just trying to sell stuff or is he really looking out for my car? if you can't trust your guy, you need another shop. if you just want to do things your way, good luck!
