  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello Team, I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze (1.8L) with 105k miles. My car was affected by a faulty thermostat that caused it to overheat while idling and/or running the air conditioner; when I was moving or turned on the heat, the temp gauge would drop back to normal levels. About a couple months...

    My 2012 Cruze is coming up on 100k and I’m thinking of changing the ATF. I got the vehicle at 25k and haven’t done it yet. I’ve read quite a bit on here so I’m confident it’s something I can do myself. I see a lot of people like the Amsoil signature series. What are your thoughts on the...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi all! I have a 2013 LT 1.4 and was wondering what to do... My current mileage is 74038 and I have no idea if the fluid in the Transmission has ever been changed. I am planning on buying Ammsoil ATF fluid regardless but am just curious as to whether I should get it "changed" or "flushed"...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    My 2013 Cruze has a 1.4L engine in it with 87,396 miles (140,651 Km) on it. I bought the car used when it had 76,488 miles (123,095 Km) and have no idea if the OE automatic transmission fluid is in there. I've been reading on here that I should replace it every 45k miles and I've been reading...

  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Can anyone point me to some technical data about the specification for ATF for the Aisin found in the CTD? Please note that I'm not asking for brand recommendations, opinions, or testimonials. I would use the AC Delco stuff, but at $30 a quart, I think a little research is in order first.
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was perusing a parts diagram for Black Betty the other day and discovered the Civic automatics have an ATF warmer. It's a small heat exchanger near the block to warm the ATF going back to the transaxle if needed. I didn't know this sort of thing was used. I found it a neat bit of...

    Can someone tell me if this is the fluid level plug on a 2012 Cruze AT? The bolt next to the axle boot. Thanks
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    2012 Cruze LTZ 59xxx miles First off, I did a drain and fill using Amsoil fuel efficient ATF. I'm so far impressed with the results. Smoother shifting and performance all over. I'm concerned though. I drained the fluid (didn't measure what came out), put in 5 quarts, released the overflow...

  12. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    I have been working on an alternate method for changing the ATF on this car for a while, and believe I have most of the creases ironed out. This thread will serve to discuss the procedure being outlined and provide assistance with any steps that still need to be discussed. Note: This does not...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've been reading into changing the ATF in my cruze lately and have decided I want to try to change it every 40k or so. However I'm not mechanically savvy whatsoever and I don't think I should attempt this myself. I hear a lot of bad things about flushes and it seems to be what all places are...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello, I have noticed oil (ATF, red oil) leaking where the driveshaft connects to the transmission (longer shaft, right side of transmission). I have searched the forum, and although there are many transmission oil leak threads, I have not found one related to the shafts. Exactly where the...
  15. General Discussion
    I am at 32,000 miles and I got my automatic transmission fluid changed and switched over to Amsoil ATF. I have to say what diference. Drives like a different car. Very smooth shifts and when I start in manual mode there is no hesitation and it feels like it has more power. Sometimes...
  16. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    It seems that AMSOIL is filling in the gaps for products. There was a rumor rearlier this year that they were working on a 5W-30 Dexos2 equivalent oil, but they've now verified that their ATF is suitable for use in this transmission as well, which is good since the GM stuff is ridiculously...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi everyone On several occasions I have spoken to the dealer about AT oil change - but he says "not earlier than the 120.000 km or more ...." My Cruze Diesel with 6t45 gear has now rolled 77.000 km, and today I replaced 4.8 liters of Ardeca Dexron Vl oil - no problems with it - but a strange...
