    It didnt seem to be. I did not notice any magnetic tension on the plug when removing it from the socket. However, my hands were pretty darn cold and I couldnt feel much.
    Some of the pics are a little blurry. Probably from my hands shivering and the fact that I was just using my phone. I got it done though, for my Cruze friends!

    TSU, what did you do to get updated information about the new oil life? I don't think the gauge sensor it’s so smart that recognizes the new oil?

    ...the engine ECU 'calculates' oil life from miles-since-last oil change, engine temperatures, engine load and RPMs.

    ...but, the displayed OIL LIFE numbers will be incorrect if you (or the service center) didn't "reset" the display when the oil is changed.

    Oil change Monitor - reset

    Chapter 10, Page 12. Oil Life % monitor reset directions are located here in the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze owners manual. If your owners manual is in the glove box, remember you can read the manual page by page at the Chevrolet.com web site, under the "Owners" column.

    OP - Great post. What oil filter did you use, and where did you get it?

    Autozone sold me an STP S10246.

    I happened to use the Wix because it is what they had in stock. Got it at O'Reilly auto parts. I think it was ~$8.

    I just did my first oil change at 2,816 miles using OP's instructions and pictures - it worked perfectly. The hardest part was buying the 24 mm socket and the proper extension, since it wasn't part of my toolset. I do recommend that you use a funnel when draining the oil, - it rushed out really fast, and the funnel saved my panel from getting drenched.

    Thank you TSURacing!!!! You rock!!
