2010 Chevrolet Equinox LS 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


My vehicle has been great until it got cold outside and afraid its becoming a death trap. My vehicle has 83,000 miles and this winter my vehicle has decided to lower speed on its own no matter what speed im going.. I was on the interstate with my children doing 70mph and my vehicle violently started shaking the reduced engine power came on and service stabilitrac n immediately wouldn't let me decide the speed of my vehicle it dropped to 40mph and no faster there was no shpulder to pull off and had to drive it like that with people flying up on us scaring us to death.

Had the same problem and juve3 is correct. It is caused by an electrical component in the throttle body and to repair it, the throttle body has to be replaced.

Hi Lindsey, I own a 2010 Equinox also and had the exact same issues as you are currently having last year, not fun at all, at one point I stopped driving it. It's the throttle body, it needs to be replaced. Hope this helps if you haven't gotten an answer yet.
