Question about Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

Good Afternoon: I wonder if I can help you locate a mechanical problem that has my 2006 Chevrolet Equinox AWD wagon, the problem is that when I drive over 120 km / hr mobility starts to vibrate inside completely and the vibration comes from the rear. We perform the alignment and balancing 4 wheels, so also check all steering and traction system being so good. That may be the problem, support may be central in the gimbal bearing is in poor condition?

SOURCE: Body vibrations from 60Km/hr to 120 Km/Hr

Are the tires balanced? Did they use stick on weights, if so? If this holds true, see if there is a mark on the wheel, where a weight has flown off.

How about the front end alignment, and condition of the tires. Sometimes a belt slips in the tire. This is hard to see, but can be found by sliding your hand around the tire, and you will feel a bulge to one side. (Use caution, as there's no telling what may be stuck in your tire/s, and you can damage your hand or fingers. I realize how that sounds. One has to use finesse, when checking one's tires, with this method)

SOURCE: Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car

Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.

Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Good luck,
bob

SOURCE: My car vibrates the steering system is in good

Hi I am Vortash the main things that cause wheel Vibration are
1/ wheel balancing ( thrown weights mostly )
2/ wheel bearings
3/ susppension arms
4/ ball joints
5/ track rod ends worn
6/ steering shims loose
7/ damaged cv joints or drive shafts (transverse engines )
8/ Prop shaft missalignment (rear wheel drives )
9/ and this is the most popular one tyres not fitted correctly (twisted )
10/ unlikely but more common than you might think Buckled wheels pot hole at 40mph do a lot of damage ..
hope this gives you some ideas and good luck with finding a solution regards Vortash

SOURCE: Transmission

120 km/h is about 75 mph for me. 3400 rpms is not too high. I had the same question. My research says that this car just runs in that range at that speed. No problem needing fixed here.

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.

Where is the temperature sensor located in the 2006 chevy equinox


Since the coolant temperature sensor is an input device for the engine control computer, and it is located somewhere on the engine, don't you think it would be prudent to mention WHICH ENGINE your 2005 (or is it 2006?) Chevrolet Equinox is equipped with?

I would be happy to help you if I knew for sure what we were talking about...

Where is the fuel filter located on my 2006 chevrolet equinox?


For 2006 Equinox 2WD 3.4L SFI OHV
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f8075dedf

For 2006 Equinox AWD 3.4L SFI OHV:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/repairinfo/repairguide/repairGuideContent.jsp?pageId=0996b43f8075dedf

Its the same for both types of Equinox.
The short story: the fuel filter is an integral part of the fuel pump, and 06 Equinox has 2 fuel pumps (each presumably with its own filter), due to the odd shape of its fuel tank.
Note: the last time I thought I had a car whose owner thought it was a fuel pump/fuel strainer/fuel filter promplem turned out to have a bad spark plug wire - it caused identical symptoms (engine missing alot, especially going uphill).

My car is not wanting to start lately. I have a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox. it got a new battery in the fall so it shouldn't be that. i'm wondering if it is the alternator??


I have the same vehicle and it had the same issue. I am a turbine engine mechanic so I am pretty familiar with engine issues. Turned out to be the ignition coil. Cost about $70 at autozone and it isn't hard to replace if your mechanically inclined, a repair shop will charge you about 2 to 3 hours for labor (about $250) and about $200 for the part. so it's better to do yourself.
