Re: 2005 Chevy Equinox
On a DIS ignition system there are many things that can cause it, i would check the plugs the wires and the coil packs in that order, if the plugs have any wear at all replace them first and check the rest of it before going any further. Only use recommended plugs or autolite double platinum plugs do not use any of the fancy expensive plugs they do not work

There is no Transaxle level dipstick in the 3.4L Equinox engine. Chevrolet states in the owners manual that it is a zero maintenance item.
There is a bolt serviced, fill hole on the side of the transaxle case that doubles as the max fill level point where your mechanic can check the fluid level and color / smell for diagnostic purpose.
With my particular Equinox, regardless of the zero maintenance aspect of the transaxle, I plan to replace the fluid and filter at 150k miles for peace of mind.

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!
