Question about 2001 Acura MDX
My 2001 acura mdx touring suv is making a howling noise from the transmission. sounding like the pinion gear in the tranny is howling. when i accelerate it howls and when i let off the throttle it stops. between 40-60 mph it gets to be fairly loud or have to have radio on a little to counter it. how can i quiet this issue with my high mileage acura without tearing into the transmission?. apx 145,000 miles. Rod
You will need to pull it ,and have it rebuilt. Need to be careful,because they usually don't touch the diff,on a trans axle rebuilt
I would get a reman from the dealer and have a shop R&R yours,then return the core.

Had a similar problem with my '01 MDX - 120k miles about 3 mos ago. Made a clunking noise and suddenly locked up. Had it towed to my local mechanic that specializes in Acuras/Hondas and got a rebuilt one for about $1200 less than the dealer was quoting. No problems since and have driven from Calif to Colo and back,
