  1. A/C issues ambient air on idle

    General Discussion
    I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze LS and noticed that during idle or in heavy traffic I start getting ambient air with AC on. I have replaced condenser, new ac compressor, and recently filled with Freon. On the move ac works great super cold but now that temps here in Phoenix are staying steady over 100...
  2. What are normal Intake Air Temps?

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Just curious where the different air intake temperatures are taken and what they should be. I have two X Gauges, IA2 and IA3, but I would assume there is a IA1 as well. IA3 is always the highest so I assume this may be post-turbo, pre-intercooler? IA2 is a little lower but seems to get kind of...
  3. Filthy Air Filter and DPF issues.

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I have recently had issues with dpf plugged - engine power reduced and check engine light, etc. It went to the dealer and had a "service regen" performed in the parking lot. And it ran fine for another week and a half and set a code again... The vehicle has 18k miles and, yes, it is...
  4. P0597 and hot air from the vents

    Gen1 Service Issues
    Does anyone know if these are related and if so will a new thermostat fix both? I replaced the thermostat about 6 months ago and since it was cold weather here, I'm not sure if the heater/AC air from the vents was hot since then. I've noticed the hot air from the vents issue about a month ago...
  5. “Stealth eco” how to mod the air grille U0284

    Cruze Owner Projects
    I needed an aftermarket intercooler(heat exchanger) as all boosted engines do. I got the ZZP intercooler and it installed pretty good and easy. My Cruze is an eco which means it has that air grille device (where an intercooler belongs) and will throw a code if removed. So here is the...

  7. Best air vent cell holder?

    General Discussion
    I bought a cell phone holder on eBay that fits in air vent or CD player slot. I have a 2013. But the air vents are too small for the holder to fit in and I had to use the CD slot. But after a few months it started to warp from the Sun/heat and it's not staying tight in the CD slot. Does anyone...

  11. P1101 After installing Cold Air Intake and Atmospheric Bypass, fix?

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So as the title states, I installed a cold air intake today (one of the longer ones, previously had a short ram) and now I was almost immediately met with a P1101 code. At the same time I also did installed a BNR (Forge) atmospheric bypass valve. There were no codes before the install...

    Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior

    General Discussion
    Hi there. I've all but fixed my 2016 Chevy Cruze limited 1lt after the front bumper was torn off in an accident. I can't seem to find the harness/pigtail to connect my new ambient air temp sensor back up. I believe that the sensor clips into the front left bumper/grille but as I stated I can't...
  15. Is It Necessary to have a passenger air filter

    Gen1 Powertrain
    I have always wondered about the passenger air filter. The dealers gets about $60 to change it. Is the filter necessary? Why not just take it out? Older cars never hard these filters.

    Cruze Parts
    I bought a Spectre 9044 CAI for my 1st gen Cruze, but my wife hates it. I had on for a lap around the block and she said she would never drive it sounding like that. it came and the stock air box went back on. Happy wife...happy life huh? So I guess I should just sell this 99.99% new...
  18. Car blows cold air while idle or parked?

    General Discussion
    Good Evening, For the past couple of days I noticed while the car is in motion I get heat but if I ever stop (let's say while in traffic) I'll notice it'll get cold which is odd as that shouldn't happen. Is there something I can check to isolate what the issue might be? Might be an issue...
  19. Engine Air Filter has 4 screws

    Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    The last one is under the pipe to the front of the vehicle. Don't forget about it. It will easily break of you just remove the other 3 and forget about it.
  20. While doing the delete, i destroyed air conditioning plug.

    Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Where it plugs into the compressor there is a snap ring for the electrical connector. Is it sealed and under pressure? I was thinking about removing the snap ring and just soldering the connections but i don't know if the snap ring is holding a seal under pressure.
