There are numerous complaints about the Chevy Equinox heating up and then not starting. This has been a known issue with these trucks for years.
According to the most common discrepancies, the heads heat up due to a faulty head gasket.
In many of the cases, the heads "warp" from the overheating, which could result in a major repair typically $1,500 - $2,000.
You can Google "Equinox Got Hot and Won't Start" and you will find hundreds of cases.....but most of them were caused by faulty head gaskets.
you will have to look on the drivers side of the engine and it will look like a small round button type thing sticking out of the engine with a wire going to it(outer area has a hex shape to it for a wrench to go onto) it my also have a cover on it so look closely until you find it.use a pan of some sort to catch the coolant when you remove it good luck
There is a few things that could course your car to be over heating
Air In Cooling System
Water Pump Failure
Head Gasket Failure
These are some of the common problems as your car is reasonable new i would't think the head gasket has gone it is more then likely what you say that the water pump is broke probably the impaler has broken off. To bleed the system you need to get it up to running temperature and remove the bleed screws in the cooling system starting from the highest one working down then back up. If you find it is hard to bleed and no coolant is being pushed out it is more then likely that the water pump has gone. To test if the head gasket has gone take off the oil cap and look for a mayo type gunk around it if there is then this means that water is getting into the oil system meaning the head gasket has gone another test is to use a spacial liquid that test for exhaust gases in the coolant system.
drop tranny pan.which will drain fluid. replace filter, gasket then pan refill with fluid .start and let run a few minutes then put in gear it may take a second for fluid to get all thru trans that should do it
