#116 of 120 100k with misfire and overheating!
Jan 27, 2013 (11:27 pm)
I have taken such good care of my equinox and now it has overheated twice. Thermostat changed twice and now it shakes when I start it until it warms up! It has now started to jerk a bit when driving on freeway. Engine light came on and pep boys said it was a leaky valve, which we replaced! Engine light came on again they said it is misfiring on cylinder 2, is it only going to get worst from here? 80% of the work aha been done by pep boys as the dealer is way to expensive. Already changed the timer gasket on it and flushed the radiator, which still smells as if something is burning or leaking fluid, but no leaks! Haven't fixed the misfire yet as pep boys just re-did the leaky hose and the check engine light turned off, but it still shakes, any advice? I need help! The truck has 108k miles and was serviced at 97k!

How often did you change the Dexcool? Also, check the coolant reservoir; is the coolant a pinkish color or is there sludge in the reservoir? Good luck.
#119 of 120 under 100k and a spun bearing.

And another issue with my Equinox, after horrible noises when turning and the dealership telling me they do not hear anything and i show it to them during a ride along and they tell me it is normal. TO now less than 100k miles and i have a spun bearing which I have to replace.
I will never buy another Equinox and I am not sure i will even look at another chevy after the amount of problems I have read about with the equinox and nothing was ever done.

Mine does the same thing. It stalls while driving, sometimes even on the freeway. The check engine light will come on and then go off by itself.
At first I thought it was problems with my fuel injection because it would only do this when I had 1/2 tank of gas or less. But yesterday, it did it on a full tank of gas. Like the others, every time I bring it to the shop, the check engine light goes out and they can't find anything wrong.
