Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

I have a 2005 chevy equinox Ls and have changed the thermostat,flushed the radiator,changed the spark plugs and wires, and refilled the radiator with coolant. and did a oil change. and it has been overheating ! The first time i tried to test drive it was having some white smoke then it went away. what else can i look at to find a solution to this? Oh forgot to say its at around 90k plus miles. I also found that the coolant level goes down after it cools down,but i have found no leaks.

Possible blown head gasket. Put in gear with your foot on the brake and rev up to see if there is vapor coming out the exhaust. Also remove radiator cap and run engine to see if bubbles come out of the radiator. Either of these would indicate a blown head gasket or possibly a cracked head.

What doe a tune up for a 2005 chev cavileir coup concest of


Your typical tune up will consist of changing your spark plug wires, spark plugs, air filter, coil wire, coil pack, oil change, transmission flush, radiator flushed, and breaks check. It would not hurt to have your injectors flushed as well. I hope this helps you out. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

My 2005 Chevy Equinox LT has a number 1 cylinder misfire. I already had the spark plugs and wires changed. I also had the coil changed and it still misfires. I checked it with my OB2 computer, and it reads...


Have you done a compression check? I had the same problem on an S-10 Chevy pick up. Found that # 3 cylinder had low compression due to a burnt exhaust valve. No more problems after having valve job done on the engine.

Need to flush cooling system of a 2005 chevy equinox and change the thermostat


You can buy a flush kit from your local auto supply store to add to your cooling system for this and future flushing. As for changing your thermostat - simply remove the thermostat housing - remove the old thermostat - replace with new (be sure it is the one rated for the season at hand) - replace gaskets (or use RTV gasket maker) and reinstall housing. Fill the system with proper % ratio of coolant to water (usually 50/50). Drive away happy.:) PS You can find your thermostat housing by following the top rad hose from the rad back to it at the intake manifold.
