I ended up fixing the starting/rough idling issue by adding fuel injector cleaner to a few successive tanks of gas. Now I just do that a couple times a year and haven't had the same problem since.

As for the "Service Traction Control" and "Service Stabilitrack" warnings, that was somehow a symptom of a bad EGR valve. I found that solution online and haven't gotten those warnings after replacing the valve (I was able to do that myself).

Good luck with your issue. I think the electric system in the 08 Equinox is a weak link - I had to replace the radio/CD player just a few months after buying the car (new), and have had intermittent issues with the A/C switching from intake to recycle and turning the compressor on and off (I think that is a problem with one of the radiator fans not turning on and the system getting too hot, though).
