The Acura ZDX is a very new car, Introduced in 2009. 2010 as it’s first official model year. Designed for people who want a top level, medium sized luxury hatchback. The engine is an aluminum V6 of 3.5 liters in size in the TL model, or 3.7 liters in the TL SH-AWD [all wheel drive] model. It would be rather unusual for an engine failure to occur out of warranty. However, certain conditions out of the drivers control can occur.
Should you be the recipient of an unfortunate and expensive situation like this. Replacement Japanese Acura ZDX Engines for sale is the most cost effective avenue. Call JapaneseEnginesForSale.com.
Called the J37A1 engine, it was developed in 2007. Being 3.7 liters or 3664 cc [cubic centimeters] in displacement, it uses a belt driven SOHC [single overhead camshaft] 24 valve design engine with VTEC [variable valve timing].
One of the most ingenious and effective features of certain J-family engines is Honda’s Variable Cylinder Management [VCM] system. The system automatically disengages one bank of cylinders under light loads, turning the V6 into an inline 3 cylinder engine [using only one bank of cylinders]. The most recent Variable Cylinder Management system is capable of making it’s own decisions based on inputs from the ECM [engine control module].
It is fully computerized and uses real time signals from critical areas on the car to make adjustments on the fly, thus saving fuel, yet increasing overall power and manners.
The 3.5 liter engine was introduced in 2011 for the TL model as the standard engine. A VTEC V6 engine also, producing 280 horsepower. Using hi-tech ‘drive by wire throttle’ system eliminates the old inefficient throttle cables.
