  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey All, I am wondering if anyone has procedures for adjusting the shift linkage system for a manual 2011 ECO. I can't get the car into 1st gear at random times, and eventually do get it in if I pop it into reverse and or second, and then slide into first. I suspect that the bushings maybe be...

    Just curious if you'd think it's a good idea to adjust the turbo wastegate to a higher PSI, on the hot weather we're getting here in summer? I hardly ever press the pedal past halfway, even when accelerating on a highway onramp, but 100+F temps do have quite an amount of heat soak. If I do...

    In my 2013 LT RS I removed the window tinting but it still seems as the rear view mirror does not adjust for darkness. Is there a fuse/sensor? Maybe the mirror is bad(or good as I have never had a self adjusting mirror) Seems like still on night vision. Any ideas? Edit I see there is a...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey all I'm thinking of adjusting the waste gate to try and get just a little more boost from the turbo. I'm not looking to get 40 psi boost or anything crazy just a slight increase over the stock setting. Has anyone done this and would it be worth the effort or should I leave it alone...

    does anybody know what the official way is to adjust the hood. specifically I would like to close the gap above the grill and chevy emblem. comparing my pictures to some stock cruze photos my hood looks like it has a bigger gap than most and I am wondering if this contributes to my high...
  6. Gen1 Brakes/Suspension Tutorials
    Back Story I installed Eibach drop springs for Christmas (2013). I never really thought much about how it changed the alignment in the car. It still turned fine, tracked straight, etc. I knew I had introduced some negative camber too. But the real tire killer is excessive toe! When I...

  8. General Discussion
    Hi, Anyone here have any thoughts on the quality of Cruze's rear drum brakes on the 1LT? How many miles have folks got out of them so far? Also, are they self-adjusting, or should they be adjusted every 15,000 miles? Thanks.

    I just added a spoiler to my car and now when I open using the FOB it barely opens. Is there a way to adjust the force using the 2 bars in the trunk? The only one I see could move would be one from the a securing clip. I can live with it, sometimes I can't tell if it is open or not. :question:

  11. Lighting
    Tonight was the first time driving my Cruze after dark. Something seemed a little off with the headlights during twilight, so with the help of a family friend I did an impromptu alignment. At 25 feet from the front bumper the cutoff from the headlights was raised by approximately 4", or ~2 full...
