Problem with my 2005 Chevy Equinox v6. Repair work done prior = none beside basic preventative maintenance.
Question = I have a growling noise in my rear of the vehicle. As I start to speed up it starts then around 30-50mph it get really loud. As I slow down in starts to stop then at 10 I don't really hear it.

 

Answer: A growl noise could be a tire noise.
More likely a hub bearing. These usually change when you are driving and turning. Example- Highway off ramp turning right, noise would either get louder or softer. Same with turning left. If this is a 4 wheel drive Equinox, it could be a noise in the rear differential. This would require a Tech to inspect very carefully to determine the fault.


MY 2006 CHEVY EQUINOX LS SEEMS TO DRINK A LOT OF GAS AND A SENSOR KEEPS COMING ON, BUT EVERY TIME I GO GET THE COMPUTER HOOKED UP TO IT ALL IS SAYS IS GAS SENSITIVITY SOMETHING.

 

The term " Fuel Sensitivity" is not a phrase related to any codes. The key to poor fuel economy is to scan the computer codes and give us the number in order for us to help with this problem. The code would be in the format of " PXXXX " related to the emissions system.

    How Things Work

    Anti Lock Brakes -What Does The ABS Light Mean

    When wheel slip is detected during a brake application, the ABS enters antilock mode. During antilock braking, hydraulic pressure in each wheel hydraulic circuit is controlled to prevent a wheel from slipping. A separate hydraulic line and specific solenoid valves are used for each wheel. The ABS can decrease, hold, or increase hydraulic brake pressure to each wheel.

    Throttle Position Sensor Code P0121, P0122 and P0123

    The throttle position (TP) sensor is used by the powertrain control module (PCM) to determine the throttle plate angle for various engine management systems. The TP sensor is a potentiometer type sensor with three circuits: a 5-volt reference, a low reference, and a signal. The PCM provides the TP sensor with a 5-volt reference circuit and a low reference circuit.
