#968 of 2050 2001 MDX engine bucking badly
Feb 11, 2006 (1:46 pm)
Engine began by hesitating, check engine light came on. I shut it off & waited approx. 1 hour.. Restarted, check engine light not on, car ran great. 5 miles down the road, check engine lighta as well as the VRM-4 (4wheel drive )light came on and the car began bucking badly. I was worried to get home. car never stalled out.
Local all makes shop ( Naples, Fla. Acura dealer 2 weeks out for appt.)checked for fault codes & said that 3 cylinders were misfiring. The car sat for the morning there waiting it's turn to be looked at. The tech said that he found a vacuum hose off, reattached it, car ran great.
We then put approx. 500 miles on a trip. car ran great. Back in Naples, same exact problem occurs. Car bucks badly, both dash lights back on. I an concerned to drive it. I might have to rent a car until the Acura dealer can fit it in. Any thoughts? Pete M.

I have the same problem with 2005 MDX. Went back to the dealer and they did not know. If you find a solution, please post.
#970 of 2050 2002 Transmission replaced
Feb 11, 2006 (6:54 pm)
I have a 2002 MDX that has just over 65,000 miles. For the past two months, the transmission had been slipping but not enough to register a code. (I had the recall performed at about 35,000) Finally it stranded me and finally registered a code and the check engine light came on. Acura replaced the transmission. It was covered under extended warranty but Acura took care of the balance of the rental car, etc. I have no complaints with their service. . . BUT now the car makes a "wind-up sound" and another constant clicking/rattle which sounds like it's coming from the front left. Has anyone experienced this problem? It wasn't there before.

I have been having a funny sound like metal clanking. I had torque converter replaced after having the trans recall done.

I purchased a 2004 MDX last weekend (24,000 miles). Last night the same thing happened to me. I inserted the key & cycled the ignition twice. After that it let me out, but I'm not sure if that is what did the trick.

just a thought. Change gas station in Naples. Sometimes bad gas will make an engine mis-fire.
#974 of 2050 Ignition key stuck
Feb 18, 2006 (6:57 am)
On 2 occasions the key cannot be removed. Take to dealer and they manage to remove it without doing any corrections to mechanics they just keep on trying until they are successful.
You can be sure every effort is made to remove it before bringing it to dealer. Any suggestions
#975 of 2050 quality replacement parts
Feb 25, 2006 (1:40 pm)
My 2005 MDX touring w/ Nav was badly damaged recently, including a broken windshield, when my neighbor's tree fell on it. My car insurance company, Geico, gave me an estimate for repairing the car. It quoted the cost of "quality replacement part" for the windshield. I was told by a friend that since my car is only a few months old, Geico should pay for OME parts for all repairs. Could anyone clarify for me the rules on this (i.e., OME exclusively vs. QRP for the repair of a brand new car)?
Also, the original windshield has rain sensing capability, but the quote from geico indicated the QRP is a windshield w/o rain sensor. Is it possible they can use the original rain sensor on the replacement windshield? Thanks.

The problem lies within the shift lever on the console. Apparently some PIN is not locking or unlocking into place all the time. My sis had the problem with her 2005 MDX and the service guys rolled their eyes a lil. However, when they looked at the shift lever they notice the fault. It is not with the ignition entry area but with the shift lever when you put it into park. The service guys at Acura of Boston fixed it
