Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox
Checked gas cap, no prior starting issues, smell of gas outside after I parked the first time, no visible leaks or service lights on.
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.

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

Check the ignition coil packs. It sounds like a spark problem.

It sounds like the technician ether unplugged or damaged your idle air speed sensor. I would return the cherokee and file a complaint. Armed with the knowledge of the possible problem you may come out of this with the job done correctly. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.

I have an 06 Equinox with same prob. It's a common problem in these vehicles according to others.....My service guy keeps telling me nothing is wrong. I just laugh at him. Don't waste your money on a tune up. Search online for other Equinox owners.....there are more issues out there. You are not the only one.
