2015 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 162024

Equinox 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,721 miles


I understand there are Lawsuits Pending in regards to this situation. From the Plaintiffs mentioned in the Suits, it appears that most, if not all were in Northern, Cold Weather States. We live in Arkansas. The Incident with our Equinox occurred when my wife did the Remote Start so the Vehicle could “Warm Up” before going to an Appointment.

She had no idea what had happened until the Oil Light came on and the Engine shut Down. She notified me, I went to her location and filled it up with Oil and took it to a Repair Shop, where they discovered the PCV had frozen and caused back pressure, which blew the Rear Oil Seal and subsequently damaged the Timing.

Repair Estimate $3,000.00

Equinox LS 2.4L L$

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125,000 miles

On 2/10/23 my 2015 Equinox main seal blew and had to be replace costing $1423. Four years ago, same issue occurred, paid $1,400 and month later the engine blew during an extremely cold winter. Luckily the engine was under warranty, however this issue should not happen again with a brand new engine. I will never build a Equinox or any car from Chevy. Nothing but issues with this car.

problem #1

I was driving home and my engine started making a noise, so I pulled over to the gas station, where I could see engine oil was leaking. I had my friend bring me a couple quarts of oil which I put it in and drove to where I get my oil changed. By the time I had drove that 10 miles those two quarts of oil had pretty much leaked out of my car. He informed me that my rear main seal was blown and to take it to the dealership. I called them because the oil was pouring out of my car at the same rate as if you tipped a pop bottle upside down and let it pour out. The dealership told me because I didn't have warranty left on my car and it wasn't covered under the class action lawsuit that they couldn't help me unless I was willing to pay for it. So now I'm sitting with a car that I have a large amount left to pay on that I can't afford to get fixed.
