    Hi! I recently swapped out my 215K mile manual transmission due to the 5/6 cone bearing failure. I put in a 30K mile transmission. My shifter is now out of adjustment. Reverse is where 1st was and everything is pushed right. Is there a fix? TIA

    Cruze/Sonic 1.4L Turbo LUV/LUJ Timing Adjustment Overview: There's a surprising lack of articles on this subject, so I'm writing an article on how to adjust timing on the 1.4L Turbo. This will need to be done any time you have to remove a cam, a sprocket, or the timing chain for any reason...

    I'm working on replacing the lock actuator assembly on a 2012 1LT. Has anyone gutted these doors or worked with the lock rod adjustment? Getting the lock rods off the lock assembly is quite the art of patience. I'd like to remove the lock assembly and the rods together. But to do this I must...

    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...

    New Special Coverage on the emission reduction fluid tank reservoir due to the issues with the heater elements. Looks like GM is moving through the emissions system piece by piece...... (Note: This also applies to the 6.6L Duramax Express, Savana, Silverado, and Sierra.)
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Saw a new warranty on and was wondering what the heck it was. I researched it and could not find any information on it. I asked the service department here and they gave me full written paperwork on it. I'll summarize it for you all. 8/12/2016 #38170: Special Coverage...

    Does anyone know if/how to adjust the clutch pedal height? Mine requires you to push it almost all the way to the floor! My 2000 Sonoma was MUCH higher. Thx for any assistance

    I have a 2015 LTZ RS package, and the sunroof is actually angled down in the back. I will get a picture later today, but basically from the front of the car it sticks up a bit and then towards the back it is actually sunk down in and creates what looks like a great place for water to pool up. Is...

    So I have had these headlights installed a little over a year, took it to the dealership and had them align the headlights, they said it was tough to do, but they did the best they could. I have been getting flashed by multiple cats every night I go driving. Does anyone know how to adjust these...

    Hey all, I recently had my HID headlamps converted over to LED, highly recommend, at least twice as efficient and looks much cleaner and is more reliable (I could go on and on lol) however I was following a friend and they told me how incredibly bright and annoying they were so I was wondering...

    So lately (the last 5,000 miles?) I'd noticed a gradual, slight change in shift quality on my '13 1LT M6 - like the engagement of the gears was less of a "jumping over a gate" feel and more of a gradual push into gear. I'd changed to Amsoil 5w30 synchromesh (2 qts.) at 30,000 miles, (currently...

    The vent adjustment switches are missing on three out of the four vents in the dash. I can't really find much info on it, only one other thread on another forum. I went to gmpartsdirect but can only find the part number for the two center ones. The outer one on the driver side says n/a for...

    I’m enjoying my 2014 Cruze. I’m curious what experience people have had with alignment. According to the Cruze owner manual, the Cruze is properly aligned at the factory and requires no adjustment unless you hit something. How true is that? I’ve read reports that a lot of cars are out of...

    So I was noticing in my car that on the passenger side the little tab to adjust the vent for the air was missing (must have snapped off). Are these tabs something you can purchase or am I going to have to replace the whole vent. Anyone else experiencing this?

    my pedal is way too low, car is new and just wondering if there is adjustment

    What does it look like? Is it the screw that has a ling white plastic collar over it on the top near the housings? Which direction do you turn it to align them more upwards? Googled the **** out of this and came up empty - the Cruze manual says to go to the dealer for adjustment... Thanks Nick

    is there an adjustment for the clutch? 2012 cruze base model 1.8 6 speed thank you.
  20. Gen1 Service Issues
    I reached out to another contact I had in GM a little while back to find out more about this, as many people were reporting this as an issue. The common reports complained primarily about the height of the handbrake when pulled as a direct consequence of improperly adjusted rear drums, but as...
