2018 Chevrolet Equinox Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012018

Equinox LX 1.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


While driving at constant speed and rpm oil pressure goes from 30psi to 70psi. It doesn't seem like high oil pressure is as big a problem as low pressure. My other cars do not do this as oil pressure goes up with rpm so I asked McDaniels Service Technician and Service manager if this was normal. Technician said he couldn't repeat it but it does it ALL the time. I asked if this was normal and they both weren't sure.

In October the Service manager said he would check and get back with me but as of Jan 30, 2019 I have no response. I have called a few times but no call back. I called GM customer care and Corporate office. They said they would follow up but when I called back in January they just said I have to take it to the dealer again.

Actually I'm not sure this is normal or not on the 1.5t Equinox. It may be normal, maybe GM has a variable pressure pump to add pressure for variable valve timing. The problem is the Technicians, Service manager and Customer care have not been able to tell me this. They should know or be able to get an answer for their customers on technical questions. Cars are more technical today and the Technicians and Customer support should be more technical to address these issues. Regardless they should be able to answer customers questions in a timely manor and tell customers if they have a problem or not.

Three months is too long to wait for answer, it seems as though any issue is stalled or delayed to try to wait until the customer gives up or the warranty expires. I'm glad this is just a minor issue -I hope.
