    Doesn't surprise me your water pump went out as well. I suspect an open thermostat puts a lot of excessive load on the water pump and a bad water pump will cause the thermostat to do strange things.

    This morning I had heat. So I dont get it. Also since this is an electric thermostat shouldn't this set off a check engine light if it was stuck open? i know there is a tsb for it. But it seems to be working again. odd

    unitednations16,
    If you experience this issue again I would suggest that you take your Cruze into your dealer to have them look into this for you. They will be in the best position to get this issue diagnosed for you. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,

    ? It's a thermostat and you put a ton of miles on your car already. You're going to trade it over a MINOR repair like that that you could easily do yourself???

    That makes no sense but ok.

    The TSB says That it needs a computer flash that a dealer has to do. Plus they said it should of set off the engine light in which it didn't. Yes I can replace a thermostat if thats the problem, is a electric thermostat the same as an old wax one? and a ton of miles? 40,000 isnt a ton of miles. LOL. my 84 AMC eagle has a TON of miles. Not my cruze.


    Well when your 2011 cruze has already had the transmission replaced and now no heat. and my 84 amc eagle runs great, it kind of makes a person mad. Right?

    unitednations161,
    I do understand your concerns with this. The only way to determine if your repairs are going to be covered under your warranty is to visit your dealer. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you. Please keep me posted on the progress with your dealer. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,
