  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello! I was told that after 60K miles I should use a thicker engine oil, since my car started to make a “click” sound coming from the lifters. I know the 5W-30 is recommended for Cruze 2011 1.4T. However, I’d like to know if can change to a thicker oil or should stick with tje 5W-30

    Hi guys! Could you please help me to know which spark plugs are the best for my Cruze 2011 1.4 Turbo? I saw online the NGK Laser Iridium IFR7X7G but not sure if will fit. Any recommendation? Also if you could help me with the calibration. Thanks

    I was having issues with misfiring so I changed all the spark plugs and the coil since I already had everything open. Issue seemed to be resolved but now it's back. It typically misfires under load. If I drive like I'm 90, I usually don't notice too much but it will still be present. If I'm...

    Hey there, 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.4 Liter Turbo LT So long story short whilst replacing the valve cover gasket one of the bolts that are on the valve cover got cross threaded. The bottom two rows of the bolt broke off. Now it won't screw back in securely. (My fault obviously). It now leaks from the...

    I am looking at a 2014 1lt chevy cruze with the 1.4l turbo and a 6 speed manual transmission (RS appearance). Can anyone tell me the difference between the 1.4l and the 1.4l eco? Is the gas milage better on the eco, and if so, is it substantial? What is your personal opinion between the two...

    Hi There, I'm new :) I picked up my 6-speed 2013 LT/RS back in November with just over 19,400 miles on it shortly after blowing up my second motor in my Cobalt SS... oopsie. For now I'm mainly here just to read some discussion on anything having to do with making and keeping her pretty (so...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2013 cruze lt auto 1.4turbo. I have been playing with the slap stick on my car and it seems that if i keep my rpms around 2000 my gas mileage is way better then letting it shift itself. Is that safe to do? I'm not too car handy so I figured this would be a good place to...

    Hey Everyone, Starting Saturday night I got my 1st check engine light on my 2011 LT Cruze with just a hair over 70,000 miles on it. I have a Bluetooth OBD2 sensor so I checked the codes and over the last two days I have got P0171, P1101 and just today P0106. The car is at the dealership now and...

    Given the recent recall flap and the fact that we own a 2012 Cruze with the 1.4l engine, I decided to check My Chevrolet.com for any and all recalls. (including the most recent one for 2013 and 2014 1.4l Cruzes for the right front axle shaft.) Note- We still have not received any written Recall...

    What's up Cruzin people. I just recently purchased a 2014 cruze 1.4t 6 MT. My question is what can I do to hear the spool better? I can hear it just faintly in at low rpms (1800-2500). What would be a quick mod to hear the spool better. Not looking to do a CAI at the moment. Is a K&N drop...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This might be seem like a stupid question, but I'm interested in knowing why it happens and what I can do to stop it. I'm 16 years old and got my driver's license a few weeks ago. I've been driving a 2011 Cruze LTZ that my dad drove before he got his new Jeep Grand Cherokee. Anyway, in the...
