Try bleeding the air out of the top of the water pump 7mm wrench will release the air from the water pump, then run your engine for 2 minutes after making sure the coolant levels are good, run your engine at 2000 rpm for 2 minutes the heat should come back

My 2005 equinox won't start all the time either. Sometimes it sounds like there just isn't enough power so I have to try it two to three times.
So frustrating!!
I want out of my lease so I can get a Toyota!

Look at the key. If it is worn, switch to a new one. This happened on my 2005 Equinox. Dealer would not help either...apparently it is MY fault that the ignition wears the key down.
I had the same problem. I went to the dealership and bought a new one. Problem solved

My lights on the dash board went out last night. The flourescent needle indicators were still lit up though. Cars were flashing there lights at me. Low and Behold I didn't have rear lights. Gonna go and buy some fuses, as soon as my ride gets here. Read a couple of scenarios on here and apparently that wasn't the problem but I gotta try something

so my wife owns a 2005 equinox lt awd it started off good and running amazing after about 35,000 miles weve had to replace the head gaskets three times the heads replaced and all the gaskes from valve covers to intake gaskets. the car was in the shop numerous times for the a/c not working and the starter not working and leaving her strained. after all was done the car still kept overheating so replaced the water pump today and now the car wont start. it will keep cranking and cranking but wont start.
The Equinox has a problem with losing anitfreeze. Mine was using it and using oil from day one. You have to check both every month or you will blow the head gasket. I push down on the bumper to see the level in the expansion tank. I added two gallons in 70,000 miles and many qts of oil.

I have a problem with the passenger side window. It goes down halfway and stops. If I push down on it a little, it starts up again. Has anyone had this problem?

My key got stuck and it was worn down. I went to the dealer with my key code (It's in all those papers that they give you when you buy the car) and made up a new one. Then I got duplicates made from Ace hardware and put WD-40 on the key. Once in a while, I spray the key and slid it in. It works great.

My service engine soon light came on so I checked the cap. It was loose. The spring broke inside it. I bought another one (OEM only) online and the light went out after a few fill ups.

My mechanic replace the motor in the passenger side window. He said it was the easiest motor he has ever replaced. The motor may be rusted and it may take a little elbow grease to get it off, but once you do, the new motor goes right in. $135 plus 25 labor

I have owned a 2005 Equinox since May of 2004 - biggest piece of crap that I have ever owned.
I have replaced the following items in the 75K miles I have owned it: AC Compressor, head gaskets, thermostat, spark plugs and wires, both front door harnesses, 3 window motors, both rear trailing arms, both rear coil springs, both front struts, both front control arms, front sway arm end links (twice!) rear sway bar links, serpentine belt (have to unbolt the engine mounts in order to do that), headlight bulbs (5 times already!), it eats tires and front brakes & rotors like crazy (5 times for both), when the battery died, it ruined the 6 disc CD player, the rear carrier bearing seized up, the rear hatch struts failed, had to clean the throttle body 3 times so far, the coolant overflow canister was replaced twice, the front door checks were replaced twice, water pump replaced, thermostat, the coolant had to be flushed FOUR TIMES, I finally gave up on Dexcool and put the green stuff in, the ignition switch is slowly chewing up the ignition keys, the roof rack can no longer be adjusted fore and aft, water leaks into the headlights every time it rains, the steering shudders every time you have to turn it sharply, the delay on the wipers is extremely annoying & is practically in-adjustable, the rearward view is non-existent, the horn is practically inaudible to anyone outside of the vehicle, the seats had to be covered because they stain too easily and cannot possibly be cleaned, the steering column will need repaired soon, all of the coolant hoses were replaced TWICE, the $500.00 rear view mirror broke and cannot be repaired (only replaced), the transmission has five forward gears but can never seem to find the right gear to climb a steep hill, and I'm sure I've missed several other things. If I keep this car much longer, I imagine that every major part on it will be replaced.
Oh, and by the way, equinoxcentral.com appears to have been removed from the internet. It was a GM sponsored website designed to promote the vehicle, but turned into a complaint forum in the end because of the numerous problems the vehicle has had that GM isn't interested (or even capable) of addressing.
Because of this vehicle, I will never EVER purchase a GM vehicle again.

05 Equinox won't shift out of AWD. Just had a blown head gasket replaced and the mechanic says it sounds like it won't leave AWD. Anyone have a similar problem or a solution?

I agree with all of the post! Chevy should have named it the chevy paradox instead of the equinox. Window pillars coming off, just wait until someone takes them to court because it takes someone's life! Bad breaks! Bad motors! Just everything BAD! I love only o e thing about it! So far I have convinced 13 people to purchase vehicles from other manufacturers other than Chevy or GM. They use to have the slogan " the heartbeat of America today is today's Chevrolet" guess they need to change it to the heartbreak of America is today's Chevrolet! I wouldn't even drive one if they gave me a new one for free! Maybe to the border, after I have full coverage on it! Leave the keys in it and just walk home than back the next day and see if someone stole it! They probably wouldn't even take it! Criminals are smarter these days! Chevy I'm sorry but all of my family and friends have given up on you so we will all take our business elsewhere and if you are reading this post, well you are grown ups and you can make your own decisions but just see how you are being treated by Chevrolet they sell junk and won't stand behind it! can someone say class action lawsuit! Not me, they've already rubbed me of my time and energy. bye bye Chevy hello Ford!
