If the High pressure fuel pump is sending too much fuel to the system causing the gas to go into the oil ,why hasn't someone come up with a solution ? If there is a fix for this someone please post it. It appears that this a big contributor to the Equinox w a 2.4 motor having so many internal issues. I fixed a corvette once that had the gas in the oil issue. Replaced the OEM carburetor with an after market. Too bad there were years of damage to the gaskets already ,oil leaks were the death of the 350 motor because of gas eating them away. Just curious ,when or how will that be addressed with the fuel injection essentially causing the same problem?

Default Driving my daughters 2010 Equinox

Today I'm driving my daughters 2010 Chevy equinox and the engine is very loud as I press on the gas pedal. Also send to have a hard time shifting from gear to gear. I asked her about it she said it's always been loud and she's had the hard shift checked out and it's always checked out ok and "nothing is wrong with it". I've been driving a Loooooong time. I feel this noise, since it's only when I'm in motion, is the transmission and the fact that it has a hard time shifting just makes it evergreen more suspicious. Chevy, since this seems to be a problem by many others just by the connects on here (and what about all the people who don't think to come to the forum) why can't you do an investigative recall?? ? My kid will probably never buy another Chevy again and that makes me sad because I generally love all my Chevy vehicles

Wait til you get to about 45% on your oil change and the OIL disappears FAST. Like in a day or 2.You could ruin the motor easily.Those dipsticks can be hard to read also .I got fooled once when I thought mine was OK I drover 220 miles got home heard rattling and checked oil next day before starting. DOWN 3 quarts..

Well, i forgot about this thread its been 4 years since i posted. Way back in August of 2015 Our 2010 Equinox overheated and cracked the block with no warning. Dealer offered $7500 for a new engine which we said no. So they offered us $300 for the whole truck as a trade in, we said no. Since then we have purchased a Subaru Legacy and a Nissan Sentra which we bought both brand new. The Legacy was in once for the gas door was sticking and thats it. Only back to the dealer for normal service, Sentra has never been back to the dealer for problems.
