2006 chevy equinox water pump changed, intake gasket changed, thermostat changed radiator flushed still overheating. can rev car up and temp drops but let idle and it starts overheating again

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 .

Would changing the thermostat help my air condition to cool? does great while driving but when idling at a stop light/sign it blows warm air.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I wouldn't change the thermostat. Sounds to me that you are low on freon. Have you tried to add some to your vehicle?

I just changed the water pump, thermostat, and flushed the heater core. I ran the car for a while with the surge tank cover off and kept filling it. As soon as I got on th e-way it overheated.

The surge tank should only have a little water in it, not full. I hope you didn't overfill it, this can cause your problem, but I would look at the radiator and make sure it is not plugged and your cooling fans, make sure they are running as well. Then last but not least your water pump may be bad even though you changed it, check for good flow through the radiator, if flow is good and strong then check the fans. You have already done most of what can be done, make sure the thermostat is not in backwards, in fact take it out and see if the car runs cooler, this will help pinpoint the issue also.

Heater does not blow hot air do i need to change thermostat and how do i do that it is a 2006 equinox

Hello: Before you replace the thermostat, check the temperature door (air mix door) actuator. Make sure it is working. It should be on the passenger side of the heater case under the dash. Make sure the linkage moves when you move temperature selector on dash from hot to cold.

Need to flush cooling system of a 2005 chevy equinox and change the thermostat

You can buy a flush kit from your local auto supply store to add to your cooling system for this and future flushing. As for changing your thermostat - simply remove the thermostat housing - remove the old thermostat - replace with new (be sure it is the one rated for the season at hand) - replace gaskets (or use RTV gasket maker) and reinstall housing. Fill the system with proper % ratio of coolant to water (usually 50/50). Drive away happy.:) PS You can find your thermostat housing by following the top rad hose from the rad back to it at the intake manifold.
