What kind of battery does the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox use

The battery in your 2005 Chevy Equinox was engineered to provide you five to seven years of service. In time, the battery will wear down and no longer provide the power needed to start your engine. Sometimes this will happen before five years. For 2005 Chevrolet Equinox all Submodels and all Engines check this LINK:

Hope helps.

How many litres of oil does the 2005 equinox take?

One Quart = .95 litres

Do not over fill! Most modern engines with filter change will take 4.5 Quarts or just under 5 litres. If you are unsure just do four litres, run the motor, turn off, let stand for a few minutes then check the dip stick. Remember to whip the sick as you pull it out then push back in then read the marks, both sides. Then add more oil if needed.

5W30 is standard for modern GM vehicles, for all temperature ranges. Synthetic vs normal is up to your preference.
