Does the transmission fluid on an 06 Equinox need to be replaced @ 60K miles? Or is the fluid "lifetime"? Driven under normal driving conditions.

Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

Where is my transmission dipstick on a 05 equinox


There is no Transaxle level dipstick in the 3.4L Equinox engine. Chevrolet states in the owners manual that it is a zero maintenance item.
There is a bolt serviced, fill hole on the side of the transaxle case that doubles as the max fill level point where your mechanic can check the fluid level and color / smell for diagnostic purpose.
With my particular Equinox, regardless of the zero maintenance aspect of the transaxle, I plan to replace the fluid and filter at 150k miles for peace of mind.

Equinox has wet floors on both sides in front.....windshield wiper fluid has been filled twice, and just becomes empty. 2008 chevy equinox, do not know what is wrong or what is leaking


1) don't these cars come with a 5 year 50,000 mile warranty? if so take it to a dealer

2) if not under warranty I would replace the washer fluid lines coming from the washer fluid reservoir. something has become disconnected and fluid is not getting to the nozzles. you may need a repair manual to show you how to get to them.

Do I need a transmission flush on my 2006 equinox, 97,000 miles


It is a good idea to have your transmission fluid/filter changed at every 50k miles. If you're having any problem with your transmission shifting, hesitating etc I'd get it tested/diagnosed by a transmission shop before doing anything.

What recommended service is there for the 2005 equinox at 60,000 miles?


Definately do the plugs and wires, air filter, Transmission service, Brake fluid flush, coolant flush, power steering flush and differential (if applicable to your car) if money allows. Priority would be plugs and wires, air filter, trans service and coolant for now And then work your way down.

Hi, where do i find the dipstick to check the trans fluid on a 06 chevy equinox?


this model doesn't have a transmission fluid dip stick, it is a sealed transmission, there is a fill plug on the case of the transmission just above the pan in most cases, the fluid should be just below the plug, u must access this from under the car.
