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.

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.

Did you check the throttle positioning sensor mounted on you engine? This can usually be found near air intake on engine. There are two sensors, one on the gas pedal and one on the engine itself. May videos on on testing.

My 2006 equinox won't start after it warms up

Does it only 'not start' after putting in gas or anytime after it's been warmed up?

Does the Check Engine Light come on? If so, take it to an auto parts store and they will usually check it for free.

Google the codes displayed when checked to see what to fix.

Start problem

I have had the same exact problem now for 2 years. I have taken it to the dealer and it never does it for them and they say everything is within GM standards. I read about other gm cars having the same problem and some of them have been lucky enough to fix the problem by replacing the fuel pressure regulator. I am currently trying to see if its possible to replace in my '06 equinox. if you have any news please reply!

In the morning it takes approximately 5 trys to start my chevy equinox. Recently, it has started just turning off like it has run out of gas. Than it can take up to an hour (or more) before it restarts....

check the fuse for the fuel pump. or the relay. actually, check all fuses...i think i've heard of this before on an equinox, where the owner actually replaced was just a fuse

2006 Chevy Equinox - Service Lamp Reset

Turn the ignition to run. Within three seconds push the gas pedal to the floor three times. Turn the key to off, and then start the car. The light should flash three times signifying that it reset. If it does not, try repeating the process, but instead of turning it to off after stepping on the pedal, just start the car.
