I am going to put the smoke machine on it tomorrow and check for vaccume leakes. The dealer ship is saying its probably my engine but they only looked at it for 30 mins. Not one time did it act up. So the next test on this 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated! They are premium silicone 7mm wires that are about 1 inch shorter then the originals. I just bought this 2005 equinox and the person had the wrong plugs in it, auto lite platinum so I bought ac delco plugs and new wires to change them. During acceleration and deceleration the automatic belt tensioner moves to accommodate the higher and lower tension.
My car has an automatic transmission. I have included some other information that is not symptomatic, but might be pertinent to trouble shooting the issue. So it may no longer be under warranty if it was built in late 2006 like ours was. Faulty mechanical valve train components like worn camshaft lobes or stretched timing chain can also cause the engine to misfire; they too might need to be inspected carefully. A certain percentage of loss means there is a problem.
He removed this spark plug and showed it to me, and sure enough it was black and had actually cracked. And, the body leans a lot in turns. Being only 20 minutes from I decided to try a limp it there. There was likely another problem code - perhaps for an. Sometimes it will miss a bit right after it starts.
I'd be prepared for a bill from the dealership. Hello - these are likely unrelated problems - although all frustrating. I have not pressure checked the cooling system. This would cause the problem at idle any any motor. Take a look around and see if you can find the vacuum leak.
Curtain airbags were made standard for 2009 they were previously an option. The car did same thing. I intend to disconnect the battery tonight and force the vehicle through diagnostic relearning, in hopes of solving the problem. I wonder how many others have blown the fuse because of incorrectly connected jumper cables. It was not on, temp showed getting hotter.
. I thought I might have had water in the gas at first. Since it is a used motor its hard to find a starting point. More specifically a lean condition. The V6 offers adequate power, but sounds coarse and gets mediocre fuel economy. With just enough knowledge of auto mechanics to be dangerous I thought maybe it is the Air Filter since I had never changed it.
This is the 4 cylinder. Check for vacuum leaks and perhaps do a power balance test to see if you have a problem cylinder. There is also no problem at higher speeds or steady driving or accelerating. I'll do a proper power balance test soon. After removal, the valves and valve seats are inspected. If it's been a long time since you had a tune-up done last time, it's a good way to start; at least you will eliminate spark plugs and other tune-up items as a possible cause for misfiring. When no vacuum leak is found, the ignition and fuel system components are tested and shown to be working properly, then the next step is to look into an internal mechanical fault.
Engineers call this a power contribution. Please or to join the conversation. Posted on Nov 01, 2011 Try putting in bosch spark plugs with the 3 electrodes ,might help. If this condition occurs on your 2008 Chevrolet Equinox within 10 years of the date your vehicle was originally placed in service or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first,the condition will be repaired for you at no charge. I was leaning towards a fuel injection problem but I have not checked for vaccume leaks so I will start there. Either way, the must be removed.
