2009 Chevrolet Equinox ProblemsTransmission Fault and/or Check Engine Light With Code P0716, P0776, P0717, P0777, P2714, P2715, and/or P02723
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.
Vehicles with certain V6 engines may illuminate the Check Engine Light one or more of the following codes: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, or P0391. Our technicians tell us that some vehicles may require a powertrain control module (PCM) software update to correct this issue. Other vehicles may have excess camshaft end play on one or both cylinder heads which will need to be corrected using special procedures outlined by GM.
2009 Chevrolet Equinox Questionsproblems with engine turning over a little longer before actually starting (1 answer)
This is happening sporadically. Usually after a short trip, less than five miles. When I park and run a short errand, and come back to start again, it acts like it may not ignite engine. Turning over, but not starting for a couple of extra seconds. Then it does start up. Had it happen today ...
Tires one at a time are fine one day and the next going flat. No reason can be found when take to be checked.
The brakes work fine. The noise is coming from the dash and only happens when the car is in park.
