Default 2011 2.4 ltz

just had mine in for service this week.....originally went in for a knocking noise, turned out to be something faulty with the water pump...picked it up and drove halfway home and the ses light came on...brought it back immediately and tech said they forgot to clear the codes, give me 5 minutes and you will be on your way. Well, an hour and a half later they were offering me a rental because the actuator is bad!! lol i have put about 150 miles on it after it has been fixed and noticed it is running a lot smoother at idle and acceleration and so far an increase in mpg's...keep my fingers crossed

Here’s an update on our problem - We brought our Equinox in last Friday night, explained what it was doing (revving high, jerking forward). They told us that it is likely low in oil and that we just needed an oil change. They assure us that this is all that it is. Apparently, these vehicles use more oil than normal and since it is low, it will make the engine do some “wonky things.” So, they change the oil, we drive away and the jerking continues. We bring it back in on Monday morning, and they send a service tech out to drive with us so he can see what the issue is. We didn't even leave the parking lot when he felt the jerk. He told us to turn around and go back to the dealership. There is something wrong with the transmission. They have had it since Monday. It is now Wednesday morning. We called yesterday to check to see how it was going and they said they were still working on it and would get back to us. I can't believe I am having transmission problems on an 11 month old vehicle with less than 25,000 KM on it! So frustrating.

Exclamation same problems

we just bought a 2011 dealer driven equinox leftover with 4800 miles on it back in early september. last night i experienced a momenterly loss of power on the highway. today my wife was out doing errends and the equinox staled out. onstar diagonistic told her it was an electrical short, and that it should be towed. the equinox was towed to a local dealer where they said there is a recall for a cam shaft something or other. shouldn't this have been done before we took delivery from the dealer?

Yes I partly agree but you can't fix something that ain't broke.

Or at least acknowledge the problem. They will get it right for you!

our 2011 equinox 4cyl built 5/2011 is having problem with rpm racing, and car jerking. we had 11195 recall done at 5,200. We are now at 7,100 miles. All went well between recall and now. I am afraid of this vehicle. We bought it in June 2011. We are senior citizens and were looking forward to traveling by car.

Just two weeks ago, my 2011 equinox LT, 2.4, had the same problem as you describe. The engined revved up to 4.000 rpm's and hesitated leaving my driveway. I called my dealership, they towed the car in but were not able to duplicate nor get a code. They kept the car 6 days but did give me a loaner. They never found the problem. It has not done it since. Did your dealer find anything? Now I already had had the recall 11195 done to include the oil change. I have filed the problem with the engine revving with the National Highway Traffic Safety Asso. I hope you see this and respond.

Were you trying to quote someone?


I think the 11195 recall would have fixed this issue unless it happened after the fact. Its for the cam shaft positioning sensor or at least so I think it is... Did they reflash the ecm?

I had the recall done Sept. 24th. The engine revving happened Nov 9th. I have not had it happen since but wonder every time I get in the car if it is going to.

I didn't mean to quote. I am still figuring out how to do things.

My vehicle is back in the shop for the 3rd time. Service engine light came on. Onstar advised me to drive it for 5 more days to see if it corrected itself. I am a senior citizen but not stupid. I took it in to the dealer this morning and have a loaner. Will be interesting to see what they find this time. this is a 2011 equinox 2.4 4cyl.

We picked up our car from the dealership Friday afternoon. They said there was a lot of carbon in the gas. They cleaned the injectors and told us to use the gas in the tank and start using another station when buying gas. It seems to me they are trying to put the blame somewhere else. We still have about a 1/4 tank gas so will do as instructed and see if it makes a difference.
