  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, I have a 2011 1.4 that needs a new head gasket. I found a short block from a 2012 1.4 for a great price. Doing some research online, it seems like they might not be compatible. Does anyone know the difference if any? Will it work?

    My 2012 cruze LT just started making a ticking noise. Sounds like it's coming from one of the injectors. It has 133000 miles on it. I was reading through some other posts about tickling and they mentioned the oil and lifters. Was wondering, at my last oil change 3k miles ago they put high...

    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...

    My son's 2012 Chevy Cruze has been nothing but problems. 1) Had to replace transmission at about 38,000 miles (after the five year warranty) 2) Today have had to replace the water pump (ok that could happen) but in the process the thermostat has to be replaced for the 4th time (the fan runs...

    Hi i just bought a 2012 cruze 1.4T. The issue im having is when i am accelerating and under boost it doesnt hold boost. It will build up to 15psi then down to 5-6 lbs then back up and back down. I have checked for vacuum leaks and have none. I was thinking maybe a issue with my actuator but i...

    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze 1.4 liter non turbo. It is making a noise while at idle, similar to an air brake being released and at the same time hesitating. I've recently had a full oil change including new cabin air filter. When the AC is on, the timing if the noise changes from about once every...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Ok so my Cruze falls on its face at high engine load like in 3rd-6th gear and I hooked up to a scan tool to check if there was codes and no codes so I looked at live data and my map sensor is reading 14 hg at idle and 50 hg at full throttle pulls I think those readings are wrong for a stock car...

    Hello I drive a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze Eco. I got an oil change and as I drove back home and pulled into my garage, I noticed smoke coming from under the hood. The oil change people mentioned the gasket looks a bit off like it could be leaking oil and to get it checked out. It looks like there...

    I just got a 2012 Cruze LT with the 1.4 Turbo. I am just wondering what mods people do to these. My first planned mod is a cold air intake, then a tune from trifecta (it wouldnt let me link it), and beyond that i have no clue what i want to do. i am planning to make this a quick car, loud and...

    It looks like I'm going to be keeping the Cruze a little longer than what I expected, and I'm looking at doing struts and shocks. For some of you that have been around for a while like @XtremeRevolution will remember that early 2011 and 2012 Cruzes prior to VIN C7239134 required replacement...

I replaced all the spark plugs the coil pack the mass airflow sensor and the fuel injectors. I also tried starter fluid. You can hear...

  18. 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...

    so my cruze's charge piping was popping off the intercooler for some reason I tried as hard as I could to get that stupid design of a clip to snap onto the intercooler and it wouldn't so I bought a silicon intercooler coupler to fit offer the end of the charge pipe and clamped it to the...

    So after 120k miles in Michigan, the roads have taken their toll on my suspension. Id like to just throw a set of quick struts on the front and new shocks on the rear. From what ive gathered, the eco has its own set of springs. The car also has the manual trans. Is there a dedicated quick strut...
