2008 Acura MDX Transmission Service

What Does Your Acura MDX Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your MDX’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Acura MDX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Acura MDX transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your MDX at all.

2008 Acura MDX Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura MDX? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your MDX’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your MDX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my MDX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 MDX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
