This sounds like the fuel pressure regulator is leaking fuel into the engine when it sits, it will start as if it were flooded if you try to restart within 20 minutes and it will crank longer when cold because the fuel system needs to prime up. I hope this helps. Take care.

First, recalibrate the air handler by the following procedure;
From the Equinox Service Manual
1. With the ignition on, simultaneously press the A/C and Recirc buttons, 3 times in less than 2 seconds
2. Verify that the A/C and Recirc LEDs are flashing, Wait 15 seconds for calibration to complete
3. After calibration is complete, press the A/C and Recirc buttons to verify proper LED tracking to function selected

If this does not correct the air handling issue, have the nearest dealership diagnose possible loose electrical connections , broken air dam doors, etc.

Best of luck.

Short answer is that I've never seen a dealer charge a customer to hook up and read codes from the ODB2 port.
I think that pretty much defines that particular dealers service department.

The transmission is not designed to require fluid maintenance per the owners manual-ever. That's why there's no user available dip stick.

The cooling system is designed for flush and replace only after 150,000 miles.

Somewhere in your town is a small, affordable and professional garage with an excellent mechanic. Give him or her the list of grievances listed by the dealer and let them work their magic for much less.

You are right, some of what is listed is bunk, some could be real issues.
One that is not real? The steering is electronic assist, no fluid, just synchro-motors. What were they going to flush, your wallet?

I am a firm believer in the factory franchised dealer concept however, there are some that should have their franchises revoked, I think you found a pretty good candidate.

Best of luck.

Unusual, but with no other info, here is a procedure that has to be performed to abate general hard starts with the 05-06 models;
Once a year or 2, have a mechanic clean the throttle body inner surfaces with a rag and some brake cleaner spray.
Varnish builds up and the throttle plate sticks to the inner surface over time. A cleaning every 2 years at the longest prevents this condition.
Access through the removed air cleaner to throttle body rubber connector is all that is needed to clean the area.

Change the temperature of the air and see if the temperature changes. If it doesn't change, then you probably have a bad blend door.

I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

Reads like it might possibly be a poorly connected steering column harness connector, intermittent computer connection on one of the harnesses or other including connector damage from someone in the past that got frustrated while making a large connector "fit", causing pin damage and not quite locked harness connector.
Also, after so much time, cleaning of the throttle body opening is in order just in case you are dealing with an electrical problem, as well as a separate hard start issue. Cleaning the throttle body opening makes a big difference in general hard starts that clear when the accelerator is tapped with the key in the run position with the engine not yet started.

A good trusted garage or good dealership is going to be in order for this one.

There is no filter, unless you are referring to the screen filter on the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.
