    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 an opportunity to buy a 2012, 1.8, with a manual transmission, motor is done, I also have found a extremely low mile 1.8 engine from a 2011, with an automatic. My thinking is that the engine should be the same, as long as the flywheel and flexplate are also swapped. Probably put a new...

    I bought this car almost 4 years ago. Every winter I have the same problem. I start it and it starts hard and sputters for a few seconds and then goes back to normal.

  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    My Cruze is throwing the codes P0299 and P0171. It doesnt have the acceleration that it used to. The CEL always comes on when im idling for a long time. I know the P0299 under boost code could be anything from a bad turbo to a boost leak. I'm just not sure where to start to diagnose the...

    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.

    I just picked up a 2011 Cruze 1LT RS for a pretty nice deal to fix up and use to keep some miles off my truck. The car has a transmission issue that I haven’t had a chance yet to take a look at, but this is what was described to me from the seller. The car will drive normally for a short...
