I was stopped at a red light, my vehicle was idling slightly rough, not too bad, I didn't think, then it cut off.

Asked by Nov 28, 2014 at 01:32 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I did immediately start it back up, but
coming to complete stops, were getting the
same result. So, I would not let it idle, I just
put the vehicle in neutral at a stopping
point to keep it from cutting off again.

Before doing anything ... did you just get a tank of gas? or did you do anything to the car at all ... like wash it or change a filter? You could have water in your gas

I filled the tank on an out of town visit, and this occurred after driving from that fill up for approximately 180 miles, no washing, no filter change. Although the vehicle had an unusual incident about two weeks ago that has never occurred. I get regular oil changes based on the oil percentage. About two weeks ago, the engine was clicking and I checked the oil, and found it was empty, something that has never happened since I bought the vehicle new.

OMG .... empty oil Good grief .. didn't you get a Red light? Any how ... if there is a large amount of water in the gas you may not see it until the tank is under half full Water floats on top of gas ..refill the gas tank and if it seems better than get some additive that removes water

Thank you Tom, I will try that. And by the way on the oil situation, no the oil light did not come on, and of course I immediately refilled it with the proper kind of oil per the owners manual. I am planning on discussing that matter with Chevrolet.

I purchased the 2012 Equinox on September 16, 2015. On October 20, 2015 it cut off me 3 x. I drove it into the dealership. Of course it did not cut the ff on them. But they found that there was no oil. Now I have to do this oil consumption test per gm and bring my car back to the dealership after 1,000 miles. I took the car home on Thursday andabout 3 hours later, it cut off 4x. I took back to the dealership Friday morning. I'm so grateful to have a warranty but it is such an inconvenience. I really like gm cars but this just might be my last.

Wow, I thought I was alone. My 2011 Equnox is doing the exact same thing. I decided to take it to another dealership for a second opinion. I don't have much faith in the one I purchased it from...
