Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

Ignition key will not turn on my 2005 chevy equinox


Try turning your steering wheel hard to left or right while trying to turn the key and see if that resolves tour problem. Sometimes if you shut the engine off with the wheels turned the power steering will hold pressure against the steering lock mechanism.

What are some of the reasons I would hear a squeak/whine when turning the steering wheel on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?


The steering components need to be greased is my first option, but if this doesn't help, then your problem could be the power steering pump causing the sound.

Try rocking the steering wheel back and forth. Also even though the tumbler is the cause most of the time you should check the electrical part of the switch at times when it goes it won't allow the key to turn. Rocking the steering wheel is so that you can make sure that it is not turning due to the steering lock putting to much pressure on the tumbler.

2006 chevy equinox lt can't get the key to turn. so the car won't start, stuck in park all-wheel drive so it won't tow or move out of the parking spot.


Turn the key while turning the wheel, either to left or right. "jiggleitalittleit'llopen" I had the same thing happen to our GMC safari, the steering wheel got locked. The wheel had turned sharply and it was jammed. I fiddled with it turning the wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key, eventually it popped loose. 'WHEW!' Good Luck!

I have a 2005 Chevy Equonox


you might have to dismantle the key ignition assembly on your steering column. Have you tried getting some channel locks or some pliers to swiftly yank out the key? Is the key bent inside the ignition? If so, you have a problem on your hands and you'll have to remove the assembly and most replace it.
