  1. switch to #1 diesel = CEL

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    The CEL came back. I read the codes and there were 5 (!) of them. The error/failure codes were: Engine Control Module Electronic Brake Module Power Steering Control Module Steering Wheel Angle Sensor Module Multi Axis Accelerator Sensor Module So, I wonder if the cold is showing weakness in...
  2. switch to #1 diesel = CEL

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    It has happened with sufficient predictability that I did not have the code read. Next time, I will as it seems relatively unique to this car or fuel.
  3. switch to #1 diesel = CEL

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I put #1 diesel in my car recently--its getting cold and I drive my TD until the snow flies. Soon (40ish miles) thereafter, I was greeted with a CEL after starting the car. I've experienced this in the past when switching fuel and had the CEL extinguish itself. It has again extinguished...
  4. 90k Trans Flush?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Had mine drained and refilled last week. Dealer would only use GM AW-1 and they wanted $250 for the drain and fill. I was shown the AW-1 in the translucent plastic GM container and although my color vision isn't 100%, it looked brown to me (brand new). I had an independent drain and fill with...
  5. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I looked around a bit and saw $280-310 just now. A few days ago, I thought I saw about $150-170 on a site (new) but do not see that now.
  6. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I wondered about lubricating the EGR but had no idea what would not cause troubles down stream. 46,4xx miles
  7. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I drove the car a bit this past weekend and it ran well. This morning, was going to take it to work as the roads are currently clear here. No go. Same symptoms as before...cranks may run very poorly for a few seconds then dies. Cranks, experiences some misfires that interrupts the...
  8. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Since my car is parked for winter, I don't think about visiting here much. I'll look into the condition of the MAP too!
  9. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    It's very tempting!
  10. My EGR/Throttle Plate Experience

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    My '14 CTD would not start so upon reading here, I bought the T-handle T30 and a T30 driver and pulled the EGR valve out (also had to take the bolts out of the wiring harness so it could be distracted). It was stuck open. It did not have that much soot in it but I used brake cleaner and...
  11. road construction delays in commute--->DPF P2463 CEL, reduced engine power

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Car drove as one would expect with a reduced power message...not rough just anemic. Dealer performed the NOx position 1 sensor recall which they claim had failed and was preventing a regen cycle to occur. Road construction is finished. Time will tell. edit: Also, the parts guy quoted $258...
  12. road construction delays in commute--->DPF P2463 CEL, reduced engine power

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I commute about 40 miles each way 5 days/week on a 2 lane highway. For the past 3 weeks, it has been under extensive repair resulting in long delays and extended idling. Today, I started my CTD and was greeted with a CEL and reduced engine power message. Code P2463. Great. Appointment in 2...
  13. Last gen 2.0 TDI/Gen 1 CTD emissions

    Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    correct.
  14. 0w-30 dexos 2 ?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Maybe so. I guess, I'll have to settle for ACEA 3. Just read that VW has formally pulled the plug on TDI sales in the US so that only leaves Cruze for diesel cars here. That won't help my cause. Predictably, Volkswagen Is Abandoning Diesels in the U.S.
  15. 0w-30 dexos 2 ?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So far, I've not been able to ID a 0w-30 Dexos2 oil for sale in the US. :angry:
  16. 0w-30 dexos 2 ?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Not sure about a pan heater. Car came with the factory window sticker in the glove box. What option/package included that? Garage is kept at ~45F but work parking is outside and without access to electricity.
  17. 0w-30 dexos 2 ?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    -20F. Would imagine 0W-30 to be a bit more expensive as well. Other than an extra 5-10%(estimated) and some homework like this, is there an overt down side to doing as well as one can?
  18. 0w-30 dexos 2 ?

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Anyone running it? If so, please relate which brand and your experiences (or non-experience).
  19. Does not "glowing" the plugs lead to CEL's

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    As a new owner anticipating deeply cold (-25F) winter situations, is there any advantage to waiting extra time for cylinder heating? Will the plugs cycle more than once?
  20. first day of Cruze diesel ownership, first CEL

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Thanks. I need to take the time to look at the OM and figure out what's what. No CEL yesterday so that's a plus. As an aside, had to laugh at the note attached to the repair bill insisting the dealership receive only "completely satisfied" scores on the inevitable on-line satisfaction survey...
