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.

2005 equinox died n won't turn over again.


As with any no-start condition, you first need to know if it is no spark or no fuel.
You could try spraying carb cleaner or starting fluid into the air cleaner hose to check for no fuel. Or pull 2 or 3 plugs and check for spark.
Also take a look at the ECM for trouble codes.
It could be anything from a plugged fuel line to the gas tank to a bad relay to a dead ECM.

How do I replace spark plugs and wires on chevrolet equinox 2011 2.4 liter front wheel drive


First, I think it highly unlikely that a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox would be due for spark plugs yet. They only have to be changed every 100,000 miles.

Second, you could spend the rest of your life trying to change the spark plug wires on that vehicle and never accomplish it. 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is not equipped with spark plug wires.

Then, if the spark plugs were somehow in need of replacement at this time, I highly recommend that you do not try this at home unless you have access to compressed air to clean the debris out of the spark plug tubes. Otherwise, severe engine damage can occur. (I have replaced many cylinder heads because of DIYers attempting to change their own spark plugs without the proper methods and equipment.)

With all that said, you must remove the ignition coils to get to the spark plugs.

What all do i need to change when doing a tune up for a chevy 2005 equniox


Just basically spark plugs and an air filter. The plugs don't need replacement until 100,000 miles. The fuel filter is located inside the fuel pump assembly in the gas tank and is not serviceable. It doesn't require a PCV valve and there are no adjustments available for the throttle body, idle or timing.
