  1. This car has nothing but issues, now I have water coming in when it rains and my back seat floor is a puddle. Took my spare tire out and have water in there also. Sprayed the whole car down and can see the water coming in when I spray the roof. Looks like it may be coming from the roof rack area. Took the panels off to look and the roof/body seal may be the culprit. Also found a bulletin on this. I ordered some 3M sealer on Amazon so I'll try and replace the seal. Anyone run into this on an equinox or terrain?
  2. You guys are all too funny promoting your products...lol. I think this is for more DIYers that buyers/purchasing people.
  3. Jegs is up to $8.99 a quart now. I guess the deal was too good. Just bought it at $3.72 from Summit Racing: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/ado-10-9253?seid=srese1&gclid=CjwKCAjwmNzoBRBOEiwAr2V27Q3Cu57fnfBV_o6Inm0L4n8st5K7hqjf6IBBukD2PrQGTrxUqgoY1RoCYWkQAvD_BwE
  4. Here the rail...I ended up removing the wrong injector. #4 is closer to the drivers side. I followed a wrong online diagram for firing order!
  5. My 2014 has an exhaust smell in the cabin which is more noticeable when idling. I read online that the exhaust manifolds crack. Well today I’m getting into this and it’s a bitch. The secondary air injection is in the way on this model to access the exhaust manifold heat shield. Finally got the heat shield of and can see a crack... Now trying to remove and replace it. Got the O2 sensor out and it’s in bad shape!
  6. Replaced the #4 fuel injector and that seemed to have solved the issue.
  7. That 43 number goes to a volvo according to this ebay listing https://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Volvo-S60-01-07-Rear-Right-Passenger-Quarter-Window-Glass-43R000016-/123200437009
  8. How many miles? The 2011 equinox has some service bulletins and the emissions are covered to 150k I believe with special coverage. There's also a fuel pump recall. The cat converter they did for free on my 2011 and fuel pump.
  9. I'm having an issue I can't seem to figure out. I have a scanner and was able to pull some codes but here's what' happening. Randomly, the car will loose power, traction control light and check engine light come on. Here''s what comes up: U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module) U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module) P0300-00 Engine misfire detected (ECM) P124B-00 Cylinder 4 injector high control circuit shorted to control circuit Cleared the codes and the car ran normal for a day or so, then same thing happened and same codes. Took the plastic off the engine and inspected wiring, wiggled wires to see if I can get it to happen again thinking maybe there's a break somewhere with the loss of communication. But nothing. Ran it again fine, but then started to misfire and lights came on. Codes this time were only: U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module) U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module) P0300-00 Engine misfire detected (ECM) I also recall a few months ago, a couple of times my radio would turn off and on by itself like it lost power for a second. This made me think I had some sort of communication or loose power somewhere. I did install a new alternator and battery like 6 months ago so I checked all connections and they are fine. It's random. What could it be? Bad injector but intermittent? Don't they usually just go bad? Shorted wiring causing intermittent issue or loss of communication back to control module? Brake control module issue? ECM issue?
  10. They look like they are in good shape. Any numbers or tags on the inside?
  11. So I had some problems with slippage during some of the hot days. Bought this 2014 chevy equinox AWD used with about 90k on it and I guess the tranny was never serviced. Drained and refilled the fluid in the transmission, which was only about 4 quarts or so (need to flush to get it all) and it was black. Did it again in a week or so to mix in some good fluid. Car ran alright but instead of a slippage, it started to develop a hard shift. Next day, started to drive it and it would all of a sudden rev out like its in neutral. Coasted the car to the side of the road and moved the shifter, but would not engage into drive or reverse. i shut the car off and restarted and then it would go into drive (electronic control) but after a few feet it would pop back into a neutral state with the shift indicator in drive. No codes, no lights.
