Hi. Noobie with a problem

Hi
Please forgive me if i am not posting in the right place
I own a 2003 MDX w/205k miles. The tranny was rebuilt at 150k. The weirdest thing started happening this week. sometimes when i am coming to a stop, the car feels like I am being rear ended and it stalls out. No check engine lights come on. it will start right back up (may take a couple of attempts to get to drive again). A mechanic who specializes in Honad/Acura thinks its the tranny. A tranny guy did a diagnostic and didn't get any codes. (the mechanic could duplicate the problem, the tranny guy couldn't). I would really like to keep the car going, but at this point sinking another 3k for a tranny is not an option. please help.

thanks

Try driving the vehicle in D4 around town, and see if this helps....

Thanks for the reply. That is exactly what I did this morning on my way to work before seeing your post (good guess on my part) with no problems. I did shift to d5 on the highway. Was that necessary?

Seems to be something that is common as the MDX ages. Drive it in D4 around town, and D5 on the highway, and you should be fine
