I also have a 2010 Equinox that has been nothing but trouble. We bought it brand new in June 2010. We have changed the oil every 3,000-5,000 miles and never followed the oil life dummy guide. Here is a list of all the work and replacement parts: 6-10-11 28,265 miles...transmission shifting hard and automatically accelerating... Reprogram both PCM TCM. Strange pinging sound...found tensioner for balance shaft and water pump to have internal damage causing chain slap. Replace the tensioner and balance shaft. 8-29-11 knocking noise coming from enigine...replace links from excessive play in stabilizer bar and verify stabilizer rings in correct place per PIT5090A. Noises continued and got worse. In September we received a recall letter that stated chrome layer on chain may come apart damaged fuel pump plunger causing gasoline to enter crank shaft. 9-30-13 64,664 miles. Upon inspection pieces of timing chain guides fell into oil pan. Chain loose and broken guides.replaced timing chain and balance chain. Also replaced fuel pump because it was leaking into crank case. Parts replaced: chain,tensioner, gasket,pump, pipe, seal, gasket kit, bolt (2), filter, oil, chain, washer, tensioner,guide. Recall12312 oil life monitor update reprogrammed ECM per recall. 12-31-13 Equinox goes back in the shop for burning oil and engine sounds like diesel engine. Jolting, shaking, and stalling repeatedly in traffic. Still in shop. They say they are replacing pistons and piston rings now. I hate this automobile.. Worst decision we ever made. Oh yes I forgot they have no idea why its burning oil even after we showed them the zebra strips letter we found online. GM knows exactly what's going on and refuse to make this right. Telling everyone I know how awful this has been.
