Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
A small percentage of Chevy Equinox vehicles manufactured in 2005 were shipped with a
faulty PCM. The PCM is the "Powertrain Control Module" which controls virtually
everything on your car. Think of it like Windows on your pc at home. If Windows fails, the PC can't do what
it is designed to do. Same with the PCM in your Equinox. If your PCM is faulty,
you will get random problems at random times - most of the time this cannot be
diagnosed at the dealer because the PCM itself cannot tell them it's failing,
other than complete failure.
But it could also be a fuel delivery system failure - one of the fuel pumps is dead or dying or the fuel filter (unfortunately located in the tank and nonserviceable by the owner) is clogged.
The only way to know for sure is to have the codes checked.
