2008 AWD Chevrolet Equinox acceleration problem

I have a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox AWD. The vehicle hesitates and jerks when going uphill over 40mph and around 2000 rpm. If I get off the gas and re-accelerate, or if I hit the gas harder, it settles down.

    Already ran 2 tanks of gas with STP fuel injector cleaner and it didn't help.

    then odds are that your filter is plugged or your fuel pump is getting week

best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

Sorry Cleef, on dial up and lost the connection.
The reason it does this at higher speeds is that more ignition spark is needed to fire the spark plugs.
Yes, it's time for a tune up.
A shop that has a scanner can identify which cylinder is causing the misfire. It will have stored a code to do this.
I hope you find a good expert on chat. If not, message me back here and I will help you find your problem.
Again, my apologies for my poor connection.

Where is the fuel filter located on my 2006 chevrolet equinox?


For 2006 Equinox 2WD 3.4L SFI OHV

For 2006 Equinox AWD 3.4L SFI OHV:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f8075dedf

Its the same for both types of Equinox.
The short story: the fuel filter is an integral part of the fuel pump, and 06 Equinox has 2 fuel pumps (each presumably with its own filter), due to the odd shape of its fuel tank.
Note: the last time I thought I had a car whose owner thought it was a fuel pump/fuel strainer/fuel filter promplem turned out to have a bad spark plug wire - it caused identical symptoms (engine missing alot, especially going uphill).
