Acura MDX QuestionsRefine by vehicle
i have had both front and rear brakes replaced in the last 10 months. the car has about 90k on it , my son called last night and said he pulled out of a parking lot and realized he had no brakes. what could this be?
we had him leave the car and will have it towed on Monday.
May 2003 Acura MDX died last night. I went to the airport to pick somebody up and when I turned the key it turned over then went completly dead, no lights, no horn no electrics at all. I could not jump start and the battery is only 1 year old.
I have an MDX 2001 Model about a month ago, I started noticing noise when the car is idling, it seems as if the accelerator is depressed.
Now the car can only drive on D2, after you engage on D2 and on speed you can now manually push it to D5. However, if you stop for any reason, you have to manually put it back to D2 before you can drive again.
Our vehicle has only 27,300 miles but is 6 years old. We do mostly local driving so we did a pre-emptive brake pad replacement on both front and rear. A caliper seal was leaking so we had to do that replacement also. Does this seem early or is it a function of brake time like the pads?
Driver and front passeger carpets are collecting water from under the carpets.
ACURA dealer quoted $645 (including 10% discount)
seems pretty high...
Just replaced my starter with new one and starter still stays engaged with flywheel for about two seconds after car starts.....this is the reason I replaced the starter to begin with.
A few months ago I noticed a humming sound and sometimes a vibration when gently accelerating that puts the tachometer b/w 1000 and 2000 RPM's. Above 2000 I don't notice anything. Took it to dealership yesterday and they said the torque converter is failing but everything else is fine and it wouldn't hurt anything. Est cost $2700+tax
Does this sound right. What about cost? I was thinking of trading it in beforehand and now esp if I have to plunk down almost $3k for a repair. It has 99k miles.
i just had my oil changed at the dealer and rep said that very soon I would need the big service at 105000 mile and he said it would cost around $3500.00 does this seem right? I have always taken my car to the Dealer for all the service so the car is not in a terrible shape, runs fine.
I have a 2003 Acura Mdx and the cd-player used to work fine... now it doesn't play ANY cds. I used to think that it was because the cd's weren't original cd's but I also tried original cds and it wont play those either... please help!
a light came on that read 4vtm. Once when I tried to put my car in reverse, it would not move. When I pushed the 4 vtm button, it does not work. Several months ago, I had to have a torque converter on it. It has a one yr warranty. Shoud the warranty cover this? If not, what will be the approximate cost?
I also need a quote on the power steering reservoir. I have been told that I need both the pump and reservoir.

My 2004 MDX with 105,000 miles has tires that leak down and set off the low tire sensor. I believe the sensor is correct based on checking with a gauge. Is there any reason that the tire should leak down?

I need to replace the radiator on my 2003 Acura MDX. I need step by step detailed instructions, as I am a "fix it my basement" type mechanic and this is an extensive repair. I am out of work currently, and cannot take it to a garage, so I would truly appreciate your help. Thanks much, iamn2tiques.
cannot eject disc from compact cd player
Randomly my MDX will not start. When I turn the key on, all the lights, aux features, everything works perfectly except the engine won't start. The starter is not energizing. I can hear relays picking up when I turn the key to start, but no action from engine. I don't have a key indicator either. When this condition occurs, usually we are home. So we wait for a while (twenty minutes, hours, even a day) then try to start up the car. Usually it fires up fine like there was no issue. The dead time seems random in length. Not sure where to go from here. I would take it to the shop, but by the time I would have it towed there it would probably fire up just fine. Anyone have suggestions or previous experience with this kind of problem?

p0300-P0306 map reading at 1.14 what does this mean
Hi. Last summer, my check engine indicator lit up and I took it to the dealership. They found Code P0740. They noted on my receipt that they found the transmission to be failing and recommended it to be replaced. I didn't notice anything wrong in the way my car was running. No noises, goes into reverse when I put it on reverse, wasn't slipping, it was running great, actually. But I know nothing about cars and when I was told that my transmission needed replacing, I had it replaced. Looking at my receipt, it appears that they also changed the ECU. The diagnosis costed me $70.04, and the transmission and ECU, $5,421.90. (Please don't scream). I was just talking to my friend about it and he told me that the only possible affected components with that code are 1) hydraulic control system; 2) torque converter, and 3) transaxle. He also said that failure of any of these three components would render the car undriveable. But my car was running just fine. He also said that the transmission is irrelevant, and the ECU is irrelevant. Can a mechanic please confirm all that? Thanks guys!
