SOURCE: Water pump on 2005 Chevy Equinox

Water pump is locate on the front center of the engine.

I will rate water pump change as a 7/10 in difficulty scale.

You should check for special tool(s) requirement from the library before you start.

It's a good time to change the drive belt at the same time.

50/50 coolant mix is fine.

If you haul heavy load or in cold climate then bump it up to 60/40 mix

DO NOT FORGET to find or draw the belt routing diagram before you undo the tension.

A 30 second sketch will save you a lot of time.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox, keeps over heating.

Make sure you have the proper antifreeze mixture of 50/50 (antifreeze/water), Too much water will boil over and too much antifreeze will gel up causing overheating. The other thing you can do is replace the temperature sensor and that is on the intake manifold by the thermostat housing, you can see it and can be replaced in under 10 min with a socket and disconnecting the wire clip to the sensor. If your not sure where the temperature sensor is, you can pick up the sensor at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions for you to replace it with common tools. 
The other thing to is the radiator fan turn on once the gauge hits 190-205 when the car is stopped, If the car is moving then it should not be overheating since the air should be flowing through the radiator. It also has been know for the Antifreeze to gel up and crystallize in the cooling system and may need to be flushed out, this is common with the Orange Antifreeze and is always neglected and the 50/50 ratio is no longer and thew antifreeze ratio is higher causing the gelling and then crystallizing. This can be fixed buy flushing out the entire cooling system with Preston Radiator flush, just follow the instruction and you should have the problem solved. 
Good luck and keep me posted, Start with the cooling system flush first before replacing the temperature sensor.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy equinox overheating..

I can almost guarantee you have a blown head gasket. I had all of these symptoms too. Bubbles in the antifreeze resevior when cool, loosing antifreeze when driven and finally smell and white smoke out the exhaust. Even a pressure check of the radiator came out fine. This seems to be a common problem with the 05 Equinox due to aluminum heads. Cost me about $1600 to fix but the new gaskets are supposed to be made to withstand the expanding of the aluminum heads. Good luck!

Where is the location of the oil pressure sender on a 2014 awd Chevy Equinox?


The AWD Equinox has two model selections (LS & LT) and two 2.4L engine options (K2.4L FI DOHC & the K2.4L Flex Fuel DOHC.)

Information on the Equinox engines oil pressure senders location is difficult to find on line so all I can offer in the way of help is to say that It will be on the engine block connected to the ECM (engine Control Module) with a single TN/BK (Tan/Black) wire lead.

The Oil Pressure Sender is a distinct looking unit that is sold by Autozone and they provide pictures of the various makes which should help you identify the units location on your engine block.

2005 Equinox: 2005 chevy equinox vibration at low speeds...


A low speed vibration is likely caused by a tire. Check to see if any rims are bent. Have the tires checked and replaced as necessary. If the tires are worn unevenly have an alignment done. If this is an AWD model check the driveshaft and support bearing.
