    2012, Dec bought manual eco, 1.4L turbor. disconnected the negative post of the battery for 15 days, now reconnected the negative post, but the tire pressure monitor display does not show the numbers, only two hyphens. Also the power window buttons do not work as before. Before, when I just...

    Items needed Psi gauge at least 20 psi 1/4” hose Air hose connector to air supply To test for boost leaks you will need a psi gauge that will test at least 20 psi and that you can read accurately. I used a “T” junction and 1/4” hose, and one of the 1/4 inch hose I slipped over the connective...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Have a 2012 1.4L turbo Cruze that is blowing oil out the front crank seal. 75,000 miles roughly. I have replaced the seal 3 times as well as the crank pulley and it still is doing it. It can stay on the lift for hours running and no leak. I drive down the road, and it blows it out. No codes and...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have reset and every time the check engine light comes on. States P0299 code pending. Approx 183,000 miles on it. I still have the original turbo and replaced the oil feed line 2 weeks ago. I have some questions for everyone: Is there something else that may fix the issue besides replacing...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi for the past few months ive been having an issue with my cruze with 62k miles, where oil sprays all over or simply leaks out of the oil cap. I have replaced the oil cap twice which didnt fix the issue. Then changed the pcv hose followed by the camshaft cover. None of these fixed the issue. I...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    HEEELLLPPP!!!!! My 2012 Cruze Eco will not engage the starter bendix and I can't figure out why! This is the 3rd starter and GM original part. It overheated and died (from over flow hose coming off.) Then when we tried to start it again the starter would spin but not engage the flywheel. I...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've been researching a noise on my Chevy Cruze that started about a month ago. I thought it was a pulley or belt but I do not think it is. I watched a few videos of a front crankshaft seal failing so I tried to replicate the advice from the videos. When I pull the dipstick, there is a bit of a...
  9. Gen1 Powertrain
    So my cruze is shifting weird into 3rd gear and makes a weird whining noise in that gear only. The rpms shoot up and drop down real quick going into 3rd. It only does this after car is hot after I've been driving for a while. It shifts perfectly fine when it's cold. The issue happens whether...
  10. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    Last fall I replaced my own water pump. I know it's under warranty. I decided to do this and it worked for me. If you have a good shop great, for those of us that don't or want to tackle this themselves this is an alternative. This is something that worked for me. I'm not responsible for...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 14 Cruze non turbo 1.4l, not your average Cruze, I am wondering if any of you know if I would be okay with putting a turbo on my car? Would it affect my pistons etc? I know I’d need to send my ECU in to get updated.

  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    About a week ago on the way to work, pulling out of my driveway, my 2011 Cruze LT with 1.4L engine sputtered a bit, surged, then ran normal until about 5 blocks later when it just died. There was a noticeable burning plastic or rubber smell at the time of death. When the tow truck driver arrived...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Background: Purchased a car from Auction without showing it to a mechanic since the auto history of the car had no issues (Stupid me, only to realize later that the car has a major mechanical issue and that is why it ended up in a copart auction). Anyways, lesson learnt and have spent $3000...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    My turbo engine light goes on & off every so often. I was stuck in standstill traffic for over 2.5 hrs in early summer of 2017 on I-75. What could cause my turbo engine light to go on & off? Bad hose(s), Bad filter, Bad bearings or something else entirely?
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    What is the timing chain life of this A14NET engine? how many miles to exchange?
  17. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I think I mentioned this before, was the oil drain plug changed on the 2014 LT? The drain plug on my 2014 is 10mm. I don't remember seeing it that small on my LS or Eco(those were 14/15 mm) and my 2013 RS has a 5/8. was the plug on my 2013 changed and 10 mm is the norm for 2013 and later? Just...

    I just got my 2016 Cruze and I feel like the clutch is too soft. I have read about people doing a cdv delete on the 1.8L Cruze, but I have a 1.4L and I don't know where the CDV is located. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  19. General Discussion
    With the announcement of GM discontinuing the Cruze, I began to wonder which GM products currently use the GEN 2 1.4L LE2 engine? While GM appears to have addressed the piston issues with early 2016-2017 engines, if they discontinue the car, does that mean that possibly more problems might go...
