  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Has anyone tried adding any additives to remedy a shift flare? It doesnt slip under load so im skeptical to add any additives to it and potentially cause more damage. I was thinking about switching to amsoil or adding lucas stop slip. Ive drained/filled the transmission twice so far and got alot...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    The front main seal on my 2011 Cruze Eco MT with 118,000 miles is leaking again, despite having been replaced once already. The oil pan seal is starting to leak, too. Has anyone had any success with "stop leak" additives with the 1.4 Turbo? I know this isn't "fixing it right", but I am about...

  4. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hello all. This is my first year with my Cruze 2.0L TD . I have been running premium D2 with the prescribed dosage of opti-lube. Here in Illinois we are currently seeing -7° degree temps and I was wondering if opti-lube is compatible with diesel 911? I have already needed a new battery and I...
  5. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So, now with winter winding down, I thought I would inquire about diesel fuel additives. 1. Did you put any anti-gel additive in your Cruze TD this past winter? 2. Do you put any cleaning additive (to remove water, etc.) in your Cruze TD on a regular basis? 3. Do you put any cetane boost...

  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Several years ago I stumbled on this thread over at Diesel Place (Dmax forum) which is an excellent thread comparing popular diesel additives. The thread is a bit long, but the vast majority of the information is in the first post. Most notably from the study, lubricity was improved best...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I just want to see if I understand correct. In the winter, a station can either blend #1 with the #2 or, alternatively, use straight #2 with additives? I'm getting some pretty significant MPG differences among stations so I am thinking some blend, some just use #2 with additives. Does anyone...
  10. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I left to teach this morning with the outside temperature right at -20F. My Diesel started in the way I'm used to after 48 hours resting in the open wind at such temperatures - a first start that quickly stalls, followed by a second perfect, successful start. I took a video of the start, but I...

    Given the discussions that are taking place in a variety of different threads I feel it appropriate that we have one thread dedicated to the discussion of diesel fuel additives. Sent from App
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    You guys that have been running the diesel Cruzes for a while, are you using any additives when filling the tank? Does the manual say anything about this? Going back to when I started driving diesels with my 84 Rabbit around 1998, I've always used Power Service white for the winter and Power...
  13. Fuel Economy
    Lots of articles regarding Acetone and Acetone Mixtures for Gasoline. Various reports sometimes result from using "Altered Acetone" The ONLY Correct Acetone to use as a Fuel Additive is 100% C.P. Acetone, 100% Chemically Pure Acetone. The stuff you get at Wal-Mart, Hardware Stores etc has...
