    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.

    Oil life monitor?

    I just saw the oil monitor symbol flash on my 05 equinox. I think I reset it within the last 6 months and I only have a few thousand miles. The 05 does not have a DIC so I don’t have a % oil reading to go by. The 08 equinox is behaving. The orange symbol has not come back on.

    Detroit Axle - yay or nay?

    Ha. You plan on keeping it for 100k miles more? Is that 5+ years? I tried the $35 China bearings. I’ve bought a dozen over 5 yrs for 5 different rigs. Fix em, sell em. But, I have kept the vue and have done 1 wheel 3 times in 5 yrs. so, I would say stay away from the $35 ones. a local yard sells...

    Intake gaskets and surge tank

    Intake gaskets and surge tank

    question is, a bad intake gasket would not cause a high surge tank condition, would it? Yes crud in cooling system may indicate poor coolant flow? If you have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. I pulled intake. Not to inspect gaskets, but to pull heads. Intake gasket had a problem. Were...

    Oil life monitor?

    The equinox is a 2008. my kid said light is off. Via txt. I wanted her to say that the symbol does not flash on/off when she turns off suv.. I’ll ask her today if that means it does not flash when suv is shut off. I drove my torrent yesterday and that lcd square does light up, a full block of...
