Chevrolet Equinox Problems

Compressor

The AC system may not blow cold at times. In many cases, replacement of the AC compressor has corrected this issue.

The Check Engine Light With Code: P0011, P0014, P0021, P0024, P0341, P0346, P0336, and/or P0391

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.

Rattle From Front Lower Control Arm

The front lower control arm portion of the front suspension may cause a rattling noise over bumps and require replacement.
