It comes thru the PCV system. Possible bad PCV valve. Replace the valve and recheck.

SOURCE: I need to reset my computer on a 2006 chev equinox

there are 2 ways to do this, use a scan tool ($50 for a basic one) to reset the light, the other is to disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes, be advised if the problem is not corrected that set the light the light will come back on in about 20 miles, also if the system is not ready u will fail smog, this means they (person doing the smog) know there was a problem.

SOURCE: where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox

Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter for Sport Trac

If the car is running good no engine problems or poor gas mileage I wouldn't worry about it. This is done as preventive maintenance. Every tune-up parts have replacement recommended periods. Ignition components, all filters and lubricants should all be replaced the most every six moths depending on how much you drive. Its all common sense if you check your oil and its black its time to change it. If your brakes are screeching same thing and if it been six month probably well over 15,000 miles since you replaced the fuel filter it'll be a good idea to change it.

I have a 2011 Chev. Equinox. engine, 3.0L DOHC, V6 SIDI engine. I change my own oil. What Brand and type of oil should I use and what brand and number oil filter should I buy.


If you change your own oil you may void your warranty. The dealer uses Chevron oil and an AC Delco oil filter. Fram is a good oil filter too and the delco you would have to get from the dealer. The fram oil filter part number is PH10060 and oil wise anything is good except Pennzoil. If you choose to run synthetic oil though dont go back to conventional oil.

I HAVE CONDENSATION IN HEADLIGHT ON 2008 CHEV Equinox. How do I fix?


First you need to find out how the water is getting inside. It could be as simple as the bulb socket is not fully tight, or the gasket between the socket and the reflector housing is damaged or missing. Or, the housing could have a crack in it.
