    what temperature sets off the ENGINE HOT A/C OFF warning?

    Had stuck open thermo on my 07 torrent. Scan tool said motor was 155f. And code was for coolant temp too low and coolant temp too high. P0126 and p0128? Been awhile. New thermo is at 200-205f when fans come on and then go off. then I had lousy heat at idle. But ok heat driving. Flushing heater...

    2005 Overheating

    Well, intake gaskets are 2/3 work required to pull heads. So, there is that. Still have to take lots of crap off top of motor. I’ve done 5 equinox head jobs.

    2010 Equinox with transmission problem - how much should I hope to get for it?

    I bought a 2010 Ltz for $800 2 yrs ago. Had a bum trans. But 180k miles. Seller said it had new head. Ran fine. It did move. Had a bit of rocker rust. I found a used trans but decided to sell it. For 800. I see same rig for sale a lot. $1200? Usual price now.

    Steering noise

    Odd thing. Steering made a groaning sound when turning wheel. I thought maybe strut mounts? Rack and pinion? I unhooked tierods end, yep that’s odd. No change. I could then twist strut assy independent of rack and I could hear the sound while turning strut. Turns out it was the sway bar link rod...

    Cooling system flow?

    Flushed cooling system. Seems stable now. Then last week temp gauge said cool but scan tool said it was normal. Next day temp gauge said ok. I’ve been driving it a bit but not daily and it seems ok. But, I have water in system. No antifreeze. I think heat is ok at idle. Hard to check with 70 deg...

    08 Equinox/Pontiac Torrent 3.6 Transmission Issues

    I bought a 2010 equinox w/2.4 that had a new timing chain but bum trans. i drained black trans fluid and refilled but I had 1-2 gears but no 3rd up. I let it sit for 2-3 months after I found out used trans was $2000+. And rebuild was more. Then I sold it.
