Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LS
I had a thermostat replaced but the faster u drive the heat works when u start slowing down it cools off
Either it has low coolant still, an air pocket or most likely the heater core is plugged and needs to be back flushed

If the blower is blowing air just fine, but you cannot control the temperature, you need to listen to air coming from the vents while turning the temperature from hot to cold. If you do n ot hear any change in airflow, then you may a temperature door in the dash broken. this is becoming a common problem on the Equinox

If your engine cools down when moving fast, you either have a problem with your water pump or your electric fans that cool off your radiator and a/c condenser. This is controlled by a temperature switch, but these fans should kick on instantly when A/C is selected.

hi, im sorry to say but the problem could be more serious it could be that your head gasket has failed and needs replacing, the only thing you could try is drain all the coolant then make sure that if you have an air bleed screw on one of the pipes that this is open then just trickle the water into the coolant system doing this ensures you have no air locks.
Once the coolant system is full then give it a try and see if it over heats, you may find that its just an air lock thats causing the problem but if it still over heats then your going to need to get a compresion test done or a sniff test to check the coolant for signs of engine gasses from the cylinder.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
