My Chevy Equinox 2011 has oil dripping out of the exhaust pipe which is sucking the oil out of the engine. The comment made by JoAnn, said a valve was replaced to correct this problem. The valve was not identified, would it be the Pollution Control Valve was the problem. Please reply before t5-16-2016 if possible.

My 2011 Equinox is getting this valve replaced as we speak! This problem sucked nearly all the oil out of my engine and the truck stalled at an intersection nearly killing me and my girls! Do you know if this is an actual recall by Chevy?? I usually get all the recall notices, and there have been about a half dozen for this model, but didn’t get one for this problem. Thanks!

If there was a recall for this, would would have been notified. To double check, just call your local dealer, give them your VIN number and they will check for a recall.

My 2012 is in the shop now with this problem. Once fixed should I see an improvement in fuel mileage

If the engine was not running properly before, then you may see a small increase.

Yes, most cars and trucks have certain problems that are common to them. On the Chevy Equinox, have the rear cylinder checked for leaking coolant. Or, if the check engine light is on and the truck hesitates when driving, this could be the sign of a bad head gasket. This contaminates the #1 spark plug and causes a misfire.
