    Timing belt or chain in the Cruze 1.8?

    I know the 1.4 has a chain but now I am curious about my engine. Anyone know?

    The video posted on the topic below shows a timing chain in the 1.4T. I can say the older 2.2 ecotec used a timing chain so I would assume they are using one in the 1.8 ecotec too.

    Interesting. But that is the ecotec and mine is just the ordinary 1.8 With all the little weight saving measures done to the ecotec maybe they switched the chain to a belt??

    the 1.8l is also an ecotec. ecotec is just a family of engines, theres a 1.4, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2, 2.4, and probably others i forgot to mention

    Obviously you didn't read my whole post, I said I assumed it was a chain in because thats what GM used on the 1.4T & ALL other older ecotecs. I can't see them changing things for one motor.
    Also your source is very suspect, some random guy on another forum says belt so it must be so. Until I see a different maintenance schedule for the 1.8 VS 1.4T(or pictures) I will use the reasonable assumption its a chain like every other ecotec.

    1.4L has a chain. 1.6L, 1.8L 2.0L (diesel) have belts.
    Some things I know, some things I don't
