2008 Chevrolet Equinox ProblemsCheck Engine Light Due to Gas Cap Issue
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.
The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.
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.

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?
