    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Slipping Equinox

Question

I have a buddy with an Equinox that has some slipping issues. When he is driving, just randomly the car would act like if it went into neutral and the car would rev up.

Anything that any of the torrent guys can relate to?

Gah, Topix. That site is very hard to take seriously at times...

What's the mileage on the Equinox? Has he kept up on transmission fluid intervals? Filter change? How hard is he on the car? There are numerous factors that can cause transmission slippage.

he is a car junky so he takes care of his car like most of us who care about our cars do. everything is on time. fluids always topped off, etc. nothing that can really cause mechanical issues though.

their are no hills in south TX at all. :)

Necroposting but, My father has an Equinox and it had some really weird issues. For example, when you use the key to open the door, the car alarm goes off.... what the hell? haha. There were a few others but that's the one I remember the most because it freaked my brother out.
