    I'm not too concerned about this, but I was surprised to see a build up of dust in the engine bay just beyond the seal under the hood. Seems like the seal isn't doing much. I know the VW doesn't have a seal at all and I'm not worried about it other than it seems the seal should prevent much...

    Hey guys, I recently did a muffler delete on my 18 Cruze(sounds pretty good) and i've been hearing a whooshing noise coming from the passenger side of the engine bay while in the car. It almost sounds like air escaping from a tube but when i took a look under the hood everything seemed ok. The...

    I had the water outlet replaced a few weeks ago (coincidence? Not sure), and just noticed this connector flopping around in my engine bay and can't figure out A> is it supposed to just be hanging there? and B> if not, where does it clip? There doesn't seem to be too much slack in the blue wire...

    Hey guys and gals, I just bought my cruze a few hours ago. Prior to this purchase I did a bunch of research here to verify this would be a good deal and sure as ish it is. Im a 6 speed L I think it is. Thats probably why the deal was so friggen good. Got it with 19 miles on it. Its a silver 16...

    I have a 2012 Cruze Eco (1.4L turbo, 6 spd manual), purchased from another individual at 62k miles a couple of months ago. The car consistently makes a fast clicking (almost a low frequency buzzing noise) in the engine bay when the key is turned to the ON position (second click), but before...

    The coolant inlet hose shot off and coolant went everywhere. How should I go about cleaning the coolant off and out of the engine/bay without damaging anything?

    We've got a 2011 Cruze LT with about 80,000 miles. Recently, when started and sitting at idle, there's a repeating noise in the engine compartment. It repeats approximately every 2 seconds and SOUNDS somewhat like something activating then shutting off. I'd classify it as a "thrumming" sound...

  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Been experiencing this issue since I bought the car a month ago. Its a 2012 LTZ. I have also been hearing a noise that sounds like a power steering pump whine, but since there is no pump, I was curious as to what it could be. Took the car into the dealership this morning and told them of the...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey all. So I'm still learning all about my cruze and some of the noises it makes. I know about the sound of the electric water pump cooling the turbo down after shutdown. But this sound I'm hearing is not that. It almost sounds sounds like a small diesel running about 20 feet away from you...
