  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, a quick question. I've done a lot of repairs and maintenance on my '11 LT with 145K miles, and one thing that is driving me crazy is the boost. It does get up and go, but if I'm trying to accelerate on an incline, I can feel the boost engage and then let off some, and it's a...
  2. Gen2 Powertrain
    I have twins and recently purchased two 2018 Cruze LT's for their 20th birthday. Now that we have had them for a couple of weeks, I do notice a difference between the two in regards to the acceleration. One of the takes off as soon as you hit the gas while the other has a bit of a delay or...

    ok, I have a 2016 cruze 1.4 turbo, with an auto trans. and about 85K miles on the engine. (133K on the body) At times, and not all the time, and mainly on hills, I swear I have to reach thru the floorboard and kick the throttle body to get the **** thing to accelerate up a hill, and not even a...
  4. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hi, new to the group but not cars. Recently picked up a '17 premier and it's been a great car. 76k miles on it now. I did all routine maintenance items when I bought it (oil change with pennzoil platinum, spark plugs, air filter, trans fluid drain and fill). When I accelerate under moderate...
  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    So ever since I’ve owned my CTD I’ve noticed a slight rattle, metal, from the engine area. I’ve check the heat shields, exhaust, all tight. Today I was changing my oil and noticed the lower mounting tab for the oil filter drip catch tray was broken. I bet this is the cause. Was going to remove...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze 103K miles and recently, I have noticed a hesitation under acceleration similar to that of a misfire. However no codes are coming up. A few times on the highway under acceleration up hill or to merge onto highway, it will hesitate and jerk real bad and the stabiltrak...
  7. General Discussion
    I have a 2012 Cruze that my daughters share. I am terrified to let them drive this car anymore. On several occasions while driving the car has lost the ability to accelerate until pulled over and turned off and restarted. It gives a message about reduced engine power, service stabilitrak etc...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hi guys, I have been browsing this forum a lot and found any good advice previously. I thought I might ask the community for some help with the issue I am having with my vehicle. I have a Diesel Cruze 2010 automatic. Only recently this has started, when I accelerate hard (no matter which...

    When my wife or I drives her 2017 cruze and the rpm's are 2k or less going down the road at a steady speed, sometimes the rpm's will suddenly shoot up to 4k rpm's without any increase in speed at all. It's almost like the transmission is slipping. No trouble codes, and when the oil was changed...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi, all. I've had an unusual issue with my 2011 Cruze stalling in acceleration, one that has not been diagnosed by multiple mechanics. Maybe someone here can help me out. For the last month, I've had an issue accelerating from zero or low speeds. When attempting to go from zero at a red light...

    Hi, all. I apologize if this kind of post isn't in the spirit of these forums, but you all have been very helpful in the past and I wanted to try again. I recently posted about an issue with my 2011 Cruze stalling in acceleration. There has been an occasional issue where when attempting to go...
  12. Gen2 Powertrain
    I’ve been noticing lately when driving that my 2018 Premier RS is making like a almost fluttering noise, more easily heard when accelerating and not even a hard acceleration. When I let off it seems to go away and then come back faint even without the throttle applied again. Car gas like 3200km...

    So the check engine light came on and now I do have the kick I used to accelerating, especially slow acceleration at higher gears and my gas mileage has gone up about 1L/100. The car is still very derivable but won't be able to get it looked at until Thursday. Any idea what this might be? Turbo...

  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi everyone, first time poster here. I have a 2014 Cruze 1.4L Eco Automatic with 120,000 miles that is is showing a P0299 code. I noticed a few days ago that the car started acting what I can best describe as very "sluggish". The car feels really heavy and slow when accelerating and is worse...
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello fellow Cruzers, First of all, thank you for allowing to be part of this great community. I have read many posts and I just decided to sign up. I need your help. I have a 2013 Cruze LS automatic 1.8 L. I bought off a friend. On slow speeds it bogs down. When I go at like 40mph and come...

    50k miles no engine codes last two mornings have been cold and on my way to work while accelerating, the RPMS go up and the engines is turning but my acceleration is slow. Ive owned the car for 43k miles so I know they are slow to begin with but not this slow. Almost like the turbo isnt working...
  18. Gen2 Service Issues
    I bought a 2017 Cruze hatch 1.4 gas 6sp manual about 2 months/3500 miles ago and the highway mpg has gone down from about 40 to the low 30s. I also noticed a bit of hesitation sometimes when accelerating. Are there any common problems with the turbo or powertrain that I should be aware of...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So the other day coming home my 2011 cruze idiled funny for a quick second and then popped the engine code. Thinking it was another dipstick pop i pulled over and looked. Nothing poped out or seemed like it was bad. So i got on the road and continued no more rough idleing for the rest of thr...
