The auto stop and the engine keep having issues and the engine lights come on. Then I get an email from On Star that I have a problem with my engine!! 2 times it happened and they fixed it!! The dealership told me there was a bulletin--I would like to see that!!!

Wife picked up the car on Sept 4th, check engine light came on Sept 9th with 600 or so miles on the car. Engine light for an internal engine problem P25A9. Dealer had the car from the 12th to the 25th, changed out an oil jet in the engine and changed the main ECU for the car said it was fixed. We picked up the car the 25th, within 3 hours of picking up the car, the same Check engine light is back.

problem #1

Feb 072018

Equinox LT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles

I have had the check engine light on intermittently for a couple of weeks now. The dealer says chevy says they do not have a fix. And to ignore the check engine light. I am terrified to drive the car. The dealer said I could get another vehicle but, they tried to penalize me by making me pay 15 months more in my contract. I told them that I cannot do that. Now what can I do. Who can help??
