is your check engine light on? sounds like a ignition misfire. what your spark plugs look like? is it individual coil packs on this engine? sorry im more familiar with euro cars.

I had issues starting my equinox. I took it to the dealer and they did a fuel system clean and flush. It was "gunked" up from engine emissions and that was keeping it from starting. Now it starts every time. They recommend doing this every 15 to 30k.
