I am purchasing a 2021 Equinox 1.5 Turbo AWD. I would like to install an auto stop eliminator and a catch can. Can anyone recommend venders who make these items for my vehicle?

Interesting, just bought one for my wife, from day one the infotainment system looses its setting, every second ignition cycle. Have heard if the hood is not fully closed, it will not go into auto shutoff mode, that sensor on the hood can be bypassed to fool the pcm, but it might have a warning lite. Sportwing makes some vey nice color matched body side moldings.

They all have a switch where you can disable auto/stop but it resets when engine if off so you have to do it every start. My 2021 Sierra Denali has the switch. It just has a letter 'A' with a circle with an arrow going clockwise around the A.

+ I doubt anyone makes one for that vehicle, little demand I am sure the reason.

Don't waste money on a catch can. Its going to cause warranty problems because it affects emissions.

I have an Elite catch can on my 2021 Silverado. Whenever it goes to the dealer's service dept. I remove it and replace the factory PCV hose. I can do this in less than 10 minutes. I get about 1/2 to 1 ounce of liquid every 1000 miles in the can. I believe this helps prevent coking on the valves.

I have a 2021 GMC Sierra Denali 6.2L and its never been to the dealer for anything yet, fingers crossed.

I seen a few of those catch cans improperly mounted (IMO) where all that's in the can is not oil. Most is condensation formed by the heating and cooling cycles of the can itself. That is why there are massive amounts of "crud" in some yet no real drop in oil level.
