Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

Open Question

My 06 chevy equinox idles rough when the a/c is on, it sometimes idles so high that it makes the truck **** forward. This worries me because if i get caught at a red light and theres pedestrians walking it feels like it wants to take off on me with my foot on the brake. What could be causing this ?

    Any check engine lights on? Does the high idle only happen when the A/C is on?

SOURCE: Hard Starts, Rough Idle

Certainly possible.Key on /engine off cycles the pump for 3 secs.In a quiet place like an enclosed garage you can hear these pumps running and at this stage it might sound abnormal, louder and squeel-ish in a sense.Then can be verified by taking fuel pressure readings with a test gauge...good luck

SOURCE: Rough idle

I had the same exact problem on my 2004 Colorado (3.5L). Cleaned the MAF sensor (with MAF sensor cleaner) and throttle body/plate - cleared it right up.

You probably have a large vacuum leak. With the engine running, listen under the hood for a hissing sound. Check all of the rubber lines running from the intake.

3rd brake lights are usually just held with 1 or 2 screws.if the clip or plastic it screws into is stripped,you can usually find a used part pretty cheap.it may just need to be screwed down.the metal clips may be found at a hardware store.

Do the cooling fans come on ? Your vehicle should have two fans controlled by The PCM - engine computer energizing three different relay's for low and high speed .

My 06 Chevy Equinox is idling high. How can you reduce the idle. It's at 3,000 RPMs just sitting still.


The number one cause for high idle is an imbalance in air pressure, An engine that is idling too high may be caused by a faulty idle air control motor valve that has completely failed or that has simply become weak and is not functioning correctly. God-Bless!

My 06 chevy equinox sometimes has touble starting. After a few cranks a little push on the gas pedal it turns on. What might be the problem?


In most cases this is causes by a failed pressure check valve in the fuel pump, this allows the fuel in the lines to drain back to the fuel tank where the pump is located and this causes the hard start.

Would A 2006 Chevy Equinox with just 40,000 miles


Possibly. It depends on what the climate is like where you live. For instance, if you live in an area where the summer climate hits 110 (i.e. Phoenix), then your vehicle will need to be serviced more regularly. Best recommendation, take your vehicle to AutoZone, Checkers, O'Reillys, etc. for a free diagnostic check.

In my 06 Chevy Equinox I went to put the key in the ignition and the ignition wouldnt turn to start the car up?


**** the steering wheel hard side to side. That should release the interlock. Otherwise the ignition switch is worn (unusual in a 06 car unless it's an awful lot of stop and go driving).
