Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
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.

Make sure the doors and trunk,and hood are shut,open them,and shut them .activate the anti theft,wait about 1 minute,and disarm it,see if it will start,if not,the key fob may need to be relearned,try turning the key on,leave it ten minutes,then turn it off,and right back on,then wait ten minutes,and turn it off,and right back on,do this a total of three times,,30 minutes,then try and start.

You will have to purchase a new/rebuilt CV axle. The axle is held in place at the hub (wheel) with a large nut that is put on with a lot of torque. If ti is "staked" then you will have to lift the flat spot out of the groove. Once the axle nut is removed, then you will have to seperate the hub from the steering components enough to allow the hub assembly to pull out and let you remove the axle asssembly. Usually removing the lower ball joint and the stabilizer bar will do this. Once the axle is removed from the hub, then you have to pull it out of the transmission. When you pull it out there many be some fluid leak from the transmission so have a drip pan ready. Assembly is basicly the opposite.
Since the axle nut can take up to 150 Ft/Lbs of torque, unless you have a large breaker bar or an air driven impact gun, this is a repair that is best left to someone with the tools needed.
