So here's the deal, i've taken it to the dealership but to no avail... they said the problem is common w/ equinox's as well... i'm hoping the geniuses here can help me out <3


nearly EVERY morning when i start up my vehicle it does this:

keep in mind, i'm NOT stepping on the brake, accelarator, etc.... it just does the high rev, lowwww chug-a-lug-i'm-trying-not-to-die-out, psycho rev then goes to normal. I live in tennessee so thought maybe humidity may be affecting it? *shrug* but it didn't do it during the winter months as frequently... right now, it's doing it every day. at the end of a work day (generally 9 - 14 hrs) it 90% of the time won't make that same crazy move but the next morning (7:30ish - 10ish when i leave for work) it does it all over again....


H E L P ! it's driving me nuts and the dealer so far has reset my computers, told me to only use shell premium fuel, had the system cleaned, all to no avail... what do u guys think i should try and has anyone else had this problem?

Something like that happened to my 89 honda accord. Forgot what the problem was, but I think it was a sensor that went bad.

Well my 2006 G6 when starting up guage meters go all the way up like that, its not that its revving up its just testing computers i guess, thats normal to see guages rev up like that when starting car, dont notice too much of the car dying or anything.... I know that guage rev up are normal though! But from what I saw in the video it looks normal, dont know what you so worried about, sounds normal too.

That's how my car starts every morning. It seems normal to me.
BTW, the gauges that sweep across all the way at startup are just for show, not for any diagnostic purpose.

They do show some diagnostic purpose. They show that the gauges and lights are still working. If something doesn't turn on or move when the car is turned on then something needs replaced.

I think he's talking about the rev after the the needle returns back. I don't think that's normal. You can actually hear the engine rev up. When I had this problem in my honda it would rev up to 4 or 5 grand...scary when your in traffic.

Naw dude, its not normal. I build hot rods so idk 2 much about the computers on new cars but theres a sensor 4 ur injectors that tells how many psi 2 spray the fuel in2 ur cylinders when its at an idle. It could be shortin out and confusing ur computer during initial start up. I dont remember exactly what its called (it might b fuel pressure sensor or somethin like that) but next time ur at the dealership ask them about that and see if it rings any bells.... And dont let them try 2 tell u its its normal or fine because its really not, and they will take advantage lol. Only older carbureted cars do that when their choke is on 2 warm up and its doesnt even rev it just makes ur idle faster until its warm. The g6 is fuel injected it doesnt have a reason 2 just rev up by itself...

Sorry I kinda drew that out....

i'm glad u did...

they're resetting my pcm or w/e today... tomorrow morning they'll try starting it again to see if it's still doing it.... in the meantime, i've got a grand prix to tear up the curves on the way home every night, lol...


oh... and btw... Gunia and Chris... see next to my name where it says "some chick..." that'd be an indicator as to what gender i am... if that doesn't give u a clue, maybe this will:
