Question about 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox. I am in the Air Force and just arrived in England. We have to get a full vehicle inspection and one of the things the mechanic told me was that the fuel filter needs to be replaced. I bought the Chevy when I was here in 2005, then went to Italy for 4 years and now I am back in England. It has about 45,000 miles on it and has never been inspected. From what I have read on internet sites, the fuel filter is inside the gas tank. Is it inside the fuel pump? If it is in the fuel pump, should I get the fuel pump replaced? Or is this something that doesn't need replaced? Thanks!!

Hi

Firstly be careful where you take the car to in the UK, I know of many garages that will try and rip you off with an american car so do question everything they say. there is no need to change the fueal pump it should be good for 100k miles.

The filter is inside the tank but not inside the fuel pump.

Hope that helps
Regards
Dan

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.

When do I change belts and hoses? 2005 Chevy Equinox


I would typically tell people to change them around 100K miles unless they see problems earlier.  Sometimes you don't even need to do it that often but I'm a huge proponent of preventative mainenance.  Just make sure that your hoses don't have any "soft" spots in them.  Squeeze them all over, especially in the bends.  Hope this helps.  Thank you in advance for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

2005 equinox the intermittant power steering issue


The power steering is on this vehicle is electronically assisted. Meaning it does not have a power steering pump. The electric motor could be going out, pulling too much current at times, and tripping the breaker. The best thing to do is take it to the dealer, and have them inspect it.
