  1. Diesel 2nd gen, hesitates when cold

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I got the car back today. They checked the fuel pressure and for any codes and nothing. They did however feel the hesitation I refer to. They showed me a bulletin stating the big exhaust leak at the turbo charger is “normal operation”. They want me to run through my tank of fuel, tank up at a...
  2. Diesel 2nd gen, hesitates when cold

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    The soot has been increasing since new. I keep the car very clean but the soot returns always. When the engine is running, I can smell that old school pre-DPF/SCR exhaust smell with my face a a half a foot away from the turbo while idling. It’s the same smell that comes in my vents if I drive in...

    Sure I’ll try to get a shot tomorrow of the soot. Thanks for the input Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Diesel 2nd gen, hesitates when cold

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    No issues starting. The car is a manual. I have my own far fetched theory... There’s splattered soot on my turbo near the wastegate. It’s been like that since 1000 miles in. I’ve raised the issue with the dealer and they told me again, that it’s normal. I find it hard to believe that any...

    As the title states, the car tends to hesitate when trying to drive for the first mile and then it clears up. It happens only under medium to low throttle. I’ve mentioned it to the dealer and despite it happening every time I drive the car, it magically “fixes” itself at the dealer. No check...

    I got the car back and it isn’t making the sound. It runs just as normal. I drove it a ton in all sorts of driving conditions since yesterday, no sound. I’m so confused. As soon as it happens again, right back to the dealership Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The dealership just called me again and they’re unable to find any issues with the car. I was told that “sometimes diesels are known to make more noise”. I emailed them the video and they assured me that diesels are sometimes noisier and the injector might not have been getting enough fuel at...

    Update: the dealership called to let me know they see nothing wrong with the car. I politely disagreed and emailed the service advisor the video attached in the forum. Let’s see how this goes... I’m hoping they don’t turn a blind eye on the issue because they don’t want to honor a potential...

    There’s a noticeable vibration at a specific rpm range, both sitting still and bringing rpm’s up and also while driving and cruising at speed. Im going to call roadside assistance as the Chevy by me is booked out until next week and have no loaner vehicles ...... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2018 Cruze RS 1.6 diesel. 6 speed manual, hatch. Came off the freeway today to a stop sign and heard a noise I’ve never heard before. Luckily I was very close to home so I pulled over and checked the oil, ample oil and no weird smells. I fueled up about 7-8 hours earlier at a station that does...

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Yeah? You think bad fuel? I’ve never been down that route That could be big big problems for the service station then because they have a lot of dump trucks and semi’s that fill there. I have other means to get to work tomorrow so I’ll be leaving the Cruze home and calling the dealership. It’s...

    Well, the car has been dead reliable and has been a dream to own. I went to pull away from a stop sign and heard an unfamiliar sound. I turned the radio down and boy...this doesn’t sound so great. I fueled up today and this sound showed up maybe 7 hours later after a full day of driving. 2018...

    I mean, sound is perceptive by the individual hearing it. Mechanical movement is going to make sound, but knowing what’s normal and not isn’t always easy. For instance, I can turn my wheels from left to right at a stop and hear a faint whining sound and the sound of tires moving on the pavement...

    This is extremely disappointing. It’s shameful that the 1.6 is tuned to no end in Europe, but once you bring it here, all bets are off the table. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
