    Hi, 2012 Lt 1.4L, 135670 miles, USA. Recently, (yesterday) changed out water pump and thermostat. Water pump was leaking and thermostat busted. Also in 2013 water pump and thermostat was changed due to overheating recall. Now after test drive, coolant reservoir is boiling and sounds like...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    A common place for a vacuum leak on the cruze is that PCV on the valve cover. However that’s not where mine is coming from. After putting the old girl back together, I started her up and she was idling real low and rough. There is a whistle coming from the backside of the engine on the passenger...

  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm getting the P0171 code in my 2012 1.4LT cruze. The PCV valve doesn't seem like it's pulling in air and there is no noticeable issues when idling and doesn't lose power when driving. I sprayed carb cleaner around all the hoses for the intake and it didn't rev the engine like it would if there...

    Hi everyone. I purchased my Cruze about a year ago. This forum has been a HUGE help so far! I started with the ac off due to high engine temperature message. Replaced both sensors, then thermostat. That fixed it. Then the valve cover. Boy was that something. First replacement was by a relative...
  9. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello everyone. So I was doing some research on rear conversion to disc brakes and wanted to see what everyone thought. I've read through all the forums and everyone's opinion was the same, NOT WORTH IT. Although it will not affect most driving situations, well ventilated disc brakes will change...

    Hi, I’ve had this code come on last month (P0496) on my 2012 Chevy Cruze. I researched and changed out my purge valve but the check engine light came back on two days later. Has anyone dealt with this or knows what I should look into next??
  12. Gen1 Service Issues
    Our 2012 chevy cruz manual keeps cutting out, radio, lights and then we came out from shopping and it had no power at all. My husband moved around on the battery and power came back but every time you hit a small bump in the road it knocks out the lights and radio..... Is this the negative...
  13. Gen 1 Tuning/Engine Modifications
    I've been eyeing up the Trifecta Advantage tune as of late, and I have decided it's time to open my wallet. I'm just writing to see if the more intelligent people on this forum have developed a sort of "checklist" for mechanical (or emotional in some cases) pre-requisites. Are there any...

  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    I had a new member, @redakaoula, PM me about an engine noise. He is from Canada and I am guessing English is not his first language. I told him I would post this and ask for your help as I am not able to answer his question. I will have him introduce himself when he is back online. He has a...
