  1. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey, I have a 2018 Premier RS and noticed lately while doing 120km/h it’s sitting at about 3200RPM and won’t upshift to 6th. If I accelerate to 130km/h it will shift up to 6th but it’s a rough shift and setting cruise at 130km/h it doesn’t know what to do and constantly shifts up/down/up/down...
  2. Gen1 1.8L
    So driving around the other day I went to grab 5th gear and it was like I was hitting the far right side of the throw for my shifter. So no 5th and 6th gear. Got home and popped off the grey shift linkage bushing in the engine compartment. With the linkage disconnected the shifter had full...
  3. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I have a '17 Cruze Diesel with the 6spd manual transmission, just shy of 10k miles. It has recently developed a very heavy shuddering/shaking/bucking behavior that comes and goes, usually under the following conditions: -1700-2000rpm -Fairly light throttle -Speeds above 40mph (Gears 4-6)...
  4. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi, new to the forum. I just replaced my flywheel using the Mt removal diy on here. After getting it back together, it starts and works from 1 to 4, but the shifter won't move to the right, and it's a little difficult to find reverse almost like something isn't lined up. Can someone give me some...
  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi all, Figured i'd post about my current misfortunes and see if anyone else has experienced the same symptoms and can offer suggestions. My 11' 2LT with auto trans and 122k miles is slipping mostly in 5th and 6th gear while trying to accelerate. The most common scenario is doing 55 MPH on...

  7. Events, Meets, & Regional Discussion
    I have seen a number of threads highlighting the previous Lordstown meets and am very interested in attending ( and possibly helping out) the next one. It seems to be normally in the May / June timeframe and it is creeping towards February already. I just what to know if I need to budget for...
  8. General Discussion
    Not sure how to explain this. I did a search and couldn't find anything. Our 2012 Cruze LS/RS 1.4 is acting up. No codes so can't really pin point it. Just that when my daughter drove it she said it was jerking some going down the highway at times when she gave it light throttle to pass. I...
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    As the title says 5th cel at 23k miles. Last time they did nox and o2's. Wife just called this morning and said it's back on. It has been about 2400 miles since last cel. I have not pulled codes yet. Goes back to dealer tomorrow. Chevy is just about to own this car back. This trip should put us...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    Anybody else experiencing this? I have a 2012 1.4t When coasting down to around 25mph and even when just barely giving it gas yet still slowing down, when the transmission shifts from 5th to 4th, once in a while that shift will be so violent it actually lurches me forward a bit. Like a hit a...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Correct me if I am wrong, but some here have claimed that the fifth gear in an eco 6 speed manual is equal to the 6th gear in the automatic and the 6th gear in the regular manual. Well, I rented a 1.4 turbo cruze with an automatic. At 70 miles an hour I was putting out 2400 rpms in 6th gear...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I can't believe no one's talking about the Motor Trend comparison between the Cruze TD, Honda Civic Hybrid, Toyota Prius, Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid and the Volkswagen Jetta TDI. After all the blah, blah, blah...they rated the Cruze last because of it's lack of interior space. The winner was the...
  13. Fuel Economy
    I know you are thinking yea we know where 5th gear is so what. How many people actually use it on a regular basis or is it typically bypassed to go immediately into 6th? In my new attempts at hypermilng in the city, esp with lots of hills I find it to be the best high gear to use. 6th is just...

  15. Gen1 Powertrain
