Question about 2006 Acura MDX
I then brought the car to a local shop to evaluate the problem .He also found that there was material and sludge in the radiator and flushed it several times until clean then replaced coolant to car spec's. The heat improved mostly with this but not still not back to normal .I returned to have the system inspected again the system ws flushed again and also had thermostat replaced as well with again only moderate increase in temp from heater. I was told to drive the car for awhile and see if got better.Well 2weeks went by and thinks got worse in tht the care started to over heat. I then brought the car to the dealer ship for thinking they would have better invite into the problem.The thought the head gasket may be leaking causing over heating.The preformed a high pressure test which was negative but did discover a leak around the thermostat .Ths fixed the overheating problem but still not the heater problem.I was told the heater core maybe the source of the problem but this could be very expensive to fix. Also I have noticed a water sloshing sound from uner the dash board but never any water inside car. Has anyone else had this problem if so what was the solution. Also if it is the heater core what is aresonable price to replace it.The car has 160k miles everything ese is functional on the car. Thanks for feedback on this problem. Frustrated and cold
I'm sorry to hear that you are having a problem with the heat on this car , I have checked on pricing , I would recommend to check small shops like mom and pops shops and see if they could replace it cheaper , but must likely it's the heater core sorry to spread the bad news , but things just happen . I have attached a price but I would negotiate and check around , you will find someone who doesn't have as much overhead as others , could very reasonable . Good luck to you and I hope this help .

I am experiencing the same issue with my 2005 MDX. I am not getting any heat from the front vents and hear water sloshing around behind the dash. I have not figured out what's wrong. Did you have any luck.

This particular model suffers with head gasket problems. I have had to replace head gaskets on several of these vehicles to solve the overheating problem. The two cylinders in the rear of the engine are the problematic ones. The head gasket goes bad in that area which sends combustion gas into the cooling system. This then creates air pockets which in turn causes the engine to run hot. The air pockets then shift and as water starts to circulate again, the temperature goes back down. This cycle repeats over and over.
Solution is to replace the head gaskets.

if poor performance was noticed right off the bat, the timing belt is not timed properly. this will cause lack of power, rough idle, pre ignition(little noisey), and rich exhaust.youre going to need to first, find a friend or someone whom you trust to do your automotive work.second youre going to need to start over by tearing it all down systematically and taking note of anything done wrong. third find reliable information on the timing marks for this vehicle. i hope for your sake nothing is broken. let me know how this turns out, ill be happy to help further if you need.
