#80 of 90 Shifting Problems
Dec 28, 2011 (10:36 pm)
Chevy Equinox - 2010
Purchased BRAND NEW!
Though, it does have 61,500 Miles already (I drive tons)
Issues is as follows:
1. Shifting has become a MAJOR problem (automatic). As I accelerate, the RPM increases, the car decides to think while around 2-3 RPM; as it has ended its thoughts, the car accelerates. Unsure why it has started to do this, I am extremely puzzled, as it does not seem right...
2. The car decided to show its CHECK ENGINE light at least twice in the past two weeks. Usually stays on for a day or so and then it vanishes.
3. The CHECK STABILITY TRACK came on about a week ago and said it should be checked, but has not come up again; should I be worried?
4. I had ON-STAR diagnose remotely my check engine light once and they told me that something with the fuel gauge is not working; either to little or to much fuel is being fed through; can this be right?
Any and all help would be great!

Ughhhh So we bought our 2010 4 cyl Equinox LS this last summer following the end of our beautiful 2003 Grand Prix GT who made it to an impressive 284,000 miles.
We wanted good mileage with enough room for all our extra stuff. I drive a lot (35,000+ miles per year) for work. Well here we go, as I read all everyone's posts here our stuff is unraveling. I have the same issue with the low tire pressure in the rear tire. Which I will be addressing with our Dealership! We have already had the drive belt stretch and has been replaced. Now over the last week or so I have noticed a slight thump when parked or idling. Tonight when coming to a stop light my Nox gave me three hard (vehicle moving) thumps. I put her in park right away and she died. I started her right up and seemed to be ok the rest of the ride home.
I need to know how to fix this!!!!! It sounds just like what I am reading above and this vehicle needs to last us for a very long time.

Another GM Dealer had my Equinox all day today and said there was a TCM update ALSO which the 1stGMDealer should have done when they did the PCM update. Remember now I took my Equinox BACK to that dealer with complaints and they said there was NOTHING they could do! I questioned today at this different dealership about the change in my mpg and what they would do about that. The reply: well hot weather and getting gas at different gas stations can make that difference!! Really...2.6 miles difference from BEFORE the PCM update on the pinging? Don't buy into that sir! So 2 down and 1 MORE to go before 2500 miles and my 36,000 mile warranty will be expired.. Help....thank you..

So 2 down and 1 MORE to go before 2500 miles and my 36,000 mile warranty will be expired.. Help if you've had a increase in your fuel economy on a Equinox 2010.........thank you..

Good morning Christina,
I am have a lot of the same issues as other customers are stating. I purchased a 2010 Equinox in July 2012. Since then, I had the transmission rebuilt, computer work down, and belts replaced - all to fix several problems. Problem is, I am still experiencing these same problems. I live in Wisconsin and my Equinox is currently in the shop trying to determine what is going on. It has been in the shop off and on for over 30 days now. I have had great customer service with the Chevy dealership. Can you please reach out to me to discuss. Thank you.
