    Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket exhaust manifold that would remove the catalytic converter in the stock manifold? I have looked at a few previous posts and have not had much luck locating one. The first thread I looked at was by the BNR folks saying they came out with one. I...

    Hello Team, I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze (1.8L) with 105k miles. My car was affected by a faulty thermostat that caused it to overheat while idling and/or running the air conditioner; when I was moving or turned on the heat, the temp gauge would drop back to normal levels. About a couple months...

    So I'm looking through Rock Auto for a new Valve Cover and Gasket, since it looks like the PCV is shot, and they don't have the correct one (no PCV on top and it has a port for a vacuum tube). Other than the stealerships, where else can I get the correct cover and gasket? I've noticed that...

  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    So awhile back, my check engine light came on. I checked the codes and there was three that related to my thermostat. I talked to the auto store guys and they said its pretty common to replace them because they are originally made of plastic and tend to crack. I did some research on my own and...
