2008 Chevrolet Equinox ProblemsAC Not Cold Due to Failed Compressor
The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
Vehicles with a 6speed automatic transmission may develop one or more of the following faults related to a broken 35R clutch wave plate inside the transmission: Illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723, loss of reverse gear, slipping or harsh 3rd or 5th gear shift. Removal and dis-assembly of the transmission will be required to replace the broken 35R wave plate. It is also extremely important that all debris from the failed part be cleaned from the transmission while it is disassembled in order to try and prevent future problems.
2008 Chevrolet Equinox QuestionsI changed the EGR valve last week, a week later new diagnosis says EGR is bad? (1 answer)
I had a hard hesitation and no power before the EGR was changed and it went away and ran great for 1 week, now the new diagnosis says the EGR Valve is bad again? How can this happen? Is there something else making my EGR Valve bad?
The last time I filled up with gas, the car started missing. I put in a can of Sea Foam, now I have only a 1/4 of a tank left and it is still missing. When it misses, I press the gas and it will stop. Should I put in another can of Sea Foam?
