    I think the synchros are bad on my 2011 Cruze Eco with 6spd auto gearbox. I've heard people mention it happens more in cold than hot, but I noticed, if i accelerate hard in 3rd gear, the synchros get stuck, and suddenly jolt into 4th gear; which is why 3rd gear, even when hot, is not a gear I...

  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello there all, first post but it seems from some of the failures I may be on here often lurking, anyways. So I recently just got into a relationship with my gf and her car, a 2011 rs lt1 automatic, just hit 100k and she didn’t have an owners manual so I looked it up to see what is needed for...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This car has given me ****. Before I could make the first payment someone **** near totaled it out by smashing into me. Kinda wish that would have happened and get a none turbo model at this point, but from that day on it has been in and out of the dealer for thermostats, valve covers, etc...

    Hey everyone. For the past month or so I have been having some issues with my 12 Cruze witht the 1.4 and 6MT. It seems to hesitate/studder when under acceleration. It happens for a couple seconds and then goes away. It usually only happens when going up hill which is why I thought maybe a...

    all of a sudden, horrible noise sounded like rock under brake dust cover, never had that happen in personal vehicle, only in a semi had wife stand outside and ID what wheel sound was from, left rear jack it up, wheel off, start taking the caliper off to hear the hub noise, look down and...

    Hello, I have read some similar post on this, but did not find my answer. I have a 2011 chevy cruise 1.4L engine. When using the vehicle, its fine until we stop at lights or wait in traffic and when idling, there is a strong gas smell in the cabin of the vehicle. Last about 30 seconds when...

    Howdy folks! I've owned a Chevy Cruze for the better part of the last year or so. It was my grandfather's, and when he passed he left it to my father. When I finally became financially established I offered to buy it from him, and after negotiating a loan and price I ended up with a slick 2012...

    Im at my whits end here. I have a 2011 chevy cruze lt 1.4l. Ive had my valve cover replaced twice. Last time i had a leak in the corner closest to the alternator due to stripped bolt holes. My mechanic fixed that but now the leaking is even worse and still on the same side. Any idea what i could...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey everyone. My first post. My wife has a 2012 Chevy cruze 1lt with around 75k miles. The only issues we've had are the recalls which we got taken care of. 2 or 3 weeks ago, she said the car started idling hard in park stopped at stop signs. I drove the car and it did idle some. It finally...

    On way home from work, on side street crossing a four lane divided highway at a stoplight, I am the second car, I pull up about 10-15 feet behind a older Chevy Trailblazer. A woman driver ahead of me. Well she puts the darn thing in neutral and I can see it rolling towards my car, she dropped...

    I've got a 2014 LTZ with 19500 miles on it. Back in January after setting for a week the battery was dead. I replaced the battery and then a few weeks later I started getting check engine light,service traction control followed by service stabiltrak. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi guys. I've recently noticed a slow loss of coolant as the level has been dropping in the overflow container. The leak seems to be seeping coolant from the upper radiator hose where it connects to the water outlet. Previously the overflow hose leaked and was replaced by the dealership but I...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    After some research I believe I have narrowed down the 2 possible causes of my less than average MPG. 2013 LT 1.4L 1. How do I check for brake drag? Just jack up the front end, put it in neutral, and spin the front tires? 2. How can I for sure know if the O2 Sensors are a culprit? I am a...
  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello. I have a 2014 Cruze with 1.4l turbo. Started making a squealing sound. I removed the belt and it is the water pump making the noise. Car has less than 50,000 miles on it. Is it covered under power train warranty?
  17. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I stopped by a local GM dealership yesterday and asked the salesman if they had a new Cruze diesel on the lot yet. (I later found out he was new, but read on...) He looked a bit confused at that question, so I explained to him that they are starting to hit dealership lots and I wondered if...
