You shouldn't have to go down to the head gasket. It's a VERY common problem in the 3.1 that the intake gaskets leak. Good luck!

My Equinox has less than 36,000 miles and has a blown head gasket. We know this because of hose pressure and water on the oil fill cap. What would make this happen? Is this common with the 3400?

A blown headgasket isnt what you have, unless its been overheated. You have bad intake manifold gaskets, have them replaced before you ruin the engine bearings. VERY COMMON

I have liquid in all 4 of my spark plug chambers. does this mean i need to replace the headgasket?

Type of liquid matters, if radiator water: usually this is other then a headgasket. Intake manifold crack or gasket is more likely. If oil: head is most likely seriously damaged. Was anything worked on recently? Did engine overheat? Could anything have been poured/splashed into throttle body or engine submerged?
