Thanks for using FixYa. The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. Please revert with the codes so that I can tell you where exactly the issue is.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

What would be the best spark plug to buy for an 05 Equinox with 60,000 miles on it and what would the gap be?

!st let me say your engine is not due a set of plugs until 100,000 miles, and to change them any sooner is a waste of money.

If you still wish to replace the plugs use ACDelco Spark Plugs, here is the part number and gap.

ACDELCO Part # 41101 [Iridium]

I have a 2004 Hyundai SanteFe.I am approaching 60,000 on it. Manual calls for: replacing spark plugs, replace coolant, maybe timing belt and a hundred other check points. Cars runs and sounds great. Do I...

Yes, time to do these things.
FYI - you can purchase a complete kit for Water pump replacement which includes the timing belt, tensioner, gaskets, etc. You can't get to the water pump without first removing these items anyway, so do it before the pump fails or worse, the timing belt breaks and grenades your interference fit engine.

Example here: Amazon com Evergreen TBK313WPT 99 05 Hyundai Sonata Santa Fe Optima 2 4L...

Plugs are a piece of cake and it's time for those as well.
Replace coolant, and while you're at it, the thermostat.

I hope this helps.

My car starts rough and its stops with me whats the problem its a 2008 scion tc i just changed the spark plugs am completely lost the engine light is on what is the problem?

you shouldn't need plugs until 100,000 miles. if the engine light is on you need to run a scanner on the car to see why. something has failed like maybe an injector. parts stores will run scanner for free hoping you will buy the parts from them. what about warranty? drivetrain sometimes has longer warranty. good luck

Car won't start up when cold outside

Some more details would be nice, does the engine crank over with the starter but, don't start? Does just click, no turning at all, what weight oil is in the car. If the engine turns with the starter but, won't start I guess I would suspect a frozen gas line, have you added gas line anti-freeze? How many miles are on the car, have you changed spark plugs? The spark plugs are usually good for 100,000 miles, maybe less with with short trip driving.
