SOURCE: how to change 2005 chevrolet equinox back spark plugs

With all due respect for the opinion - I suggest you will do it better working from the underside for the 3 on the rear of engine.
Four points in your story motivated me to try from the underside (and I just finished the job without any hicups):
- mechanics suggested from the underside
- 130 lb sitting in the engine compartment will likely damage or crack something
- removing the distributor should not be needed
I drove the car with the front wheels on a pair of inclines to get more clearance underneath, secured it, then squezed from the front between the wheels. A good thin flurescent light can fit from the bottom up to help you see what you're doing.
The boots from the spark plugs I removed without much effort, then with fingertips I felt the exact place of the plugs. I fit a short 3" extension over the socket, then squeezed the handle and started turning. All theree came out without problems (before removing completely I also squeezed the extension pipe of a can of compressed air and blew air to clean around the plugs).
You need to "see" with your fingers and remember how the plugs are inclined to fit the new ones, but otherwise is just a little exhausting that you have to be a contortionist and find a good position (something to raise your head while working underneath, like a cardboard box would be useful).
So the bottom line is that it works as well from the bottom and don't have to remove anything else.

SOURCE: Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?

There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.

SOURCE: whaT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO CHange the back spark

The easiest way to change the back plugs on a GM V6 is to pay someone else to do it. You need good light, good tools, lots of various extensions, swivels, and universals. A good vocabulary of curse words also comes in handy.

2005 equinox died n won't turn over again.


As with any no-start condition, you first need to know if it is no spark or no fuel.
You could try spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air cleaner hose to check for no fuel. Or pull 2 or 3 plugs and check for spark.
Also take a look at the ECM for trouble codes.
It could be anything from a plugged fuel line to the gas tank to a bad relay to a dead ECM.

How do I replace spark plugs and wires on chevrolet equinox 2011 2.4 liter front wheel drive


First, I think it highly unlikely that a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox would be due for spark plugs yet. They only have to be changed every 100,000 miles.

Second, you could spend the rest of your life trying to change the spark plug wires on that vehicle and never accomplish it. 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is not equipped with spark plug wires.

Then, if the spark plugs were somehow in need of replacement at this time, I highly recommend that you do not try this at home unless you have access to compressed air to clean the debris out of the spark plug tubes. Otherwise, severe engine damage can occur. (I have replaced many cylinder heads because of DIYers attempting to change their own spark plugs without the proper methods and equipment.)

With all that said, you must remove the ignition coils to get to the spark plugs.

My 2005 Chevy Equinox LT has a number 1 cylinder misfire. I already had the spark plugs and wires changed. I also had the coil changed and it still misfires. I checked it with my OB2 computer, and it reads...


Have you done a compression check? I had the same problem on an S-10 Chevy pick up. Found that # 3 cylinder had low compression due to a burnt exhaust valve. No more problems after having valve job done on the engine.

I have a 2005 Equinox that is idling rough and seems to lurch a little during driving. What could be causing this?


Check all under hood vacuum hoses. If it has over 90,000 miles since the spark plugs and wires were changed, replace them.
