  1. Heavy white smoke

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Most definitely.
  2. Intercooler Upgrade?

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Agreed. I'm an hour or so east of Houston and have no issues. Recently on a trip to Arkansas I got 42mpg with cruising speeds up to 74mph. Also have plenty of power when I engage the tune. I only run Shell 93 octane which makes all the difference in the world with mpg and power.
  3. Low Oil pressure to head

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Not necessarily. It could be borderline. The lifters are at the top of the motor where oil pressure is lowest. Checking pressure might keep you from wasting another $200 on a repair that doesn't fix anything.
  4. Low Oil pressure to head

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Have you checked your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge?
  5. Heavy white smoke

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    P0496 is an evap code. I wouldn't think that it would be related to your white smoke.. Is the smoke white or light blue? As far as oil out the exhaust ports go, the rings may have stuck and it's pushing oil past the pistons. There's no telling what you'll run into when working on a sludge...
  6. Trifecta Tune

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    When the cruise is engaged (cruise light on) you're in eco mode. The cruise doesn't have to be set rather just on. That way the cruise control can work and you get your best mileage. When the cruise is turned off, you're in the tuned power mode. It would be pointless to run a power tune...
  7. Trifecta Tune

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I purchased my 2012 6 speed ECO brand new in May (I believe) of 2012. In June of that same year I tuned it with Trifecta. I still have it on and have never had the first minutes trouble with it. You get a very noticeable power improvement when it's engaged. When it's off you can still get...
  8. 12 cruze problems need help

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Old engine got water in it? Was the vehicle in a flood?
  9. 2012 Cruze Eco... should I buy?

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've had my '12 eco manual trans Cruze since it was new. Been a great car. No issues to speak of. No coolant or transmission repairs. I drive it 42 miles a day to work and back plus we use it for road trips/vacation.
  10. BNR LS7 Coil Pack Upgrade AVAILABLE NOW

    Bad News Racing
    If you car already has a tune, does it still need to be reflashed?
  11. How to keep 12V outlet running when car is off?

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics

  12. Ignition coil

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Too bad you couldn't get something a little hotter than stock that doesn't need yet another tune.
  13. Ignition coil

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Thanks, I'll look into them.
  14. Ignition coil

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Has anyone found a high performance coil for the 1.4t yet?
  15. Pioneer upgrade sucks

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Old thread alert. A simple way to improve the audio in these is to disconnect the center dash speaker. Imaging and separation both improve.
  16. 2014 Cruze TONS OF PROBLEMS AT ONCE

    Gen1 Service Issues
    Systems affected that were listed in the letter I got from Chevrolet are : radio/hvac/abs/traction control/steering/interior lights. Seems you need the battery terminal repair. I's covered for 10 years or 120k miles.
  17. Dash vibrating on highway, 2nd appointment coming

    Gen1 Service Issues
    Mine did the exact se thing. Dove m crazy. If you grabbed the upper cowl and put up or down pressure on it the noise went away. The only way I could get it to stop was to pull the cluster, take the clear plastic lens off and put foam between the lens and the housing. I haven't heard it since.
  18. Oil Pooling in cylinder 4

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Why don't you assist him with the $800.00 tow bill?
  19. My project: extending the range per tank on a '12 ECO M6

    Fuel Economy
    I think I paid 158 for mine, new off e-bay (complete module assm). My bladder isn't big enough to outlast the fuel in the tank now LOL.
  20. Supersparks!

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Throw me a PM if you hear anything. Thanks, Carl.
