Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox
Change the plugs with the proper ones and make sure you check the plug gap. check and replace the air filter if its dirty, change the fuel filter and probably changing the plug wires wouldn`t hurt either.

SOURCE: My 1992 lumina euro 3.1
if thats all it does i wouldnt get rid of it .
does it stall out at idle or while driving?
while cold or hot?
there are many possibilities.
but a common problem on these 3.1s is the IAT motor or idle control motor attaching to the throttle body.
post me back

Plugs, Direct ignition modules should be checked for conductivity and resistance,oil, oil filter, 14 quarts of tranny fluid, tranny filter,oil, oil filter, serpentine belt, tensioner pulley setup ( cops beat on these motors) fuel filter, flush the coolant system ( a new radiator is great for these cars), timing belt, purple oil for the rear end, Id either ad Lucas (my first chioce) or marvel mystery oil for the motor, tranny, and rear end, as long as there isnt any serious trouble mechanicaly this will condtion the moving parts and reduce breakdown of those partts. Other than that i think you'd be wasting money, i work at a dealer that specializes in goverment cars, ive seen theese steps bring a car that wont move and barely run, to a dependable daily driver. good luck
