    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, so I've Just recently re-aquired a Chevy Cruze with a crapload of codes. Had a rough idle installing a new valve cover, new spark plugs. Which got rid of. On idle it will sometimes rev up and down (between 600-1200) and the traction control and stabilitrac will disengage until...

  6. P2097 on 2013 Cruze LT

    Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, My 2013 Cruze LT (86k miles) is currently showing code P2097 but am not sure what's causing it. When the check engine light first came on it seemed to be a sporadic issue that seemed related to fueling and the light would disappear every time I refueled. Lately it's been on regardless of...
  7. 2013 to 2019 Cruze wheel bolt pattern

    Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    They told me at the dealership that the bolt pattern on the 2013 Cruze is different then on the 2019 Cruze. Is this true? When I measured they appear to be the same, I don't know if I am missing something here. If I am not mistaken, I think the 2013 Cruze has a 5x105 bolt pattern.

  11. 2013 Chevy Cruze 1.4L - Squeak noise - Front crankshaft seal?

    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...

    Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I was hoping this problem would not resurface after I made every attempt to protect these Blind Spot Modules (Part # 22971842) from the elements this past summer. I very neatly covered them up with Gorilla tape and self-fusing silicone tape (see picture). I did this since these modules are...
