2006 Chevrolet Equinox Engine Light comes on and goes off, running loud, gauge

For the last 3 weeks my engine light will come on and stay on for a couple days then go off. This morning I went to drive and my mile, RPM, and thermostat gauge did not move. I started truck up again and it they began to work. The engine also sound loud when I first start it in the morning. Took it to autozone when light was on and they said I needed to replace my gas top again. That was 3 weeks ago.

    Can you get accurate reading from diagnostic without engine light being on?

    The check engine light does not have to be on to retrieve trouble codes if they have been recorded.

SOURCE: 2006 Chevy Aveo Check Engine Light coming on and off

It needs a code scanner hooked up to it,to tell you why the light is on and the cause. If there is an autozone near you take it there or
call different auto part stores to find out if they do that.Without getting the code, it's just guessing what the problem is.

All these code's are to your transmission, your mech needs to do more then pull code's, he needs to look at date on sensor to transmission before opening.

P0740 - Torque converter clutch solenoid circuit

P0758 - Shift solenoid (B) electrical

P0785 - Shift timing solenoid

P0761 - Shift solenoid (C) performance or stuck off

I would try Trans - X first pores right in to trans.

You engine is TBI, It uses a MAP sensor check the vacuum line for crack and make sure yo have a good seal, The distributor also check and make sure the pick up does not have corrosion which causes the relutor to stick. As for the EGR it would cause a misfire, and yes the do fail. I am sticking with the IAC as a problem its a stepper motor and has a high failure rate, chack also the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) for corrosion that gives false reading.

My 05 equinox keeps over heating. We replaced the thermostat. The car will run then the temp gauge goes up. When I drive it the temp gauge goes up then after driving like 2 miles it goes down then back up...


If you are positive there is no air in the cooling system and it is full of coolant, I would look for a blockage in the system or a faulty water pump.

Green light on instrument panel


Hiya--the green headlamp logo on the instrument panel comes on automatically after you start up the engine.
The green light comes on when your headlight switch is on 'auto' until you turn it to 'parking lights' or 'full on' function, that'll turn off the green light...it's normal.
The other thing is if one of 2 headlight bulb reach the end of bulb life, the green light will flash on/off a few times then stay off....until you or the garage shop put in new headlight bulb.
