    I just replaced the belt tensioner two days ago after a mechanic said it needed to be replaced after a vehicle inspection. The old tensioner was bouncing a lot and the thin, curved metal on the inside was also broken on it (see photo: Thin, Curved Metal Part That Broke Off Old Tensioner.JPG)...

    Here's the video: IMG_7152.MOV One thing that's important is that I took the thin metal pin out of the inside of the tensioner spring. It was loose and rattling. The tensioner was vibrating/moving the exact same way before I took it out though. There's also a clicking sound you can hear in the...

    Went out today and noticed the battery light on for the first time. Didn't think too much of it and within a mile got engine overheating notice and constant beep. Of course was on a 4 lane road and backed up red light so it was about 3-4 minutes before I could pull off the road, kept it in...

    I took my fiance's 2.0 diesel to my guy to get a quote on replacing the timing belt. He told me while we're there you may as well replace the water pump along with the pulley and tensioner. we looked all over ebay and different websites and we cannot find the parts outside of the...

    So I have a 2014 ls 1.8l manual that is due for a timing belt. I have the belt kit but my question is can you use a standard dual overhead cam lock kit or do you have to use the special tool? And if the special tool is a must then where can I find one?

    Hello, Yesterday my 2014 Cruze LS, 6sp Manual hit 100,000 miles. Usually I hit this mark under 4 years, but it took 4.5 years this time. Anyway, now everytime I start the car I get a "replace the timing belt" message. I am sure this is recommended and this is something built in, but does...

    Last fall I replaced my own water pump. I know it's under warranty. I decided to do this and it worked for me. If you have a good shop great, for those of us that don't or want to tackle this themselves this is an alternative. This is something that worked for me. I'm not responsible for...

    Hey gang. One of my 2016 Cruze Limited hit 60K miles Friday. Planning to change serpentine belt, maybe next weekend. Have a couple of questions dealing with the motor mount that must be removed to change belt. A. The service manual shows the engine being hoisted by only one point to remove...

    So 100k miles have come and gone on my 14 Cruze Diesel and now driving with the message alerting me to service the timing belt. The manual recommends replacement at 97,500mi, message comes on at 100k miles and I could have sworn I read somewhere something about 120k miles. I have checked mine...
  13. Gen1 1.8L
    Hi everyone! New here...ive been reading posts for 4 hours now in hopes that someone has heard of this problem. Ive had my 2014 Cruze for about 6mo. Now. Runs great. Timing belt warning came on just over 100k. Then i noticed shifting issues and also not wanting to shift past 40. Had a mechanic...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm about 5000 miles from rolling over 100k and I keep hearing that I'll get a 'change timing belt' alarm when I do. But I'm just wondering if anyone has gone longer and not experienced any problems? or has had a failure because they went longer? I have only experienced one timing belt failure...

    So about 3,000 miles overdue on timing belt change for my 2015 Cruze. Have the parts and plan to take care of it this weekend. Where can I find a diagram and any general info I would need. Just to make things easier. Also should I change out the water pump? I got the kit to change just the belt...
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just reached 100k miles in my 2015 Cruze LS and a message came up on the screen behind the steering wheel that says to replace the timing belt. Is this something that needs to be replaced immediately, or can I wait a while? Also, can I just replace JUST the belt, or are there other pieces that...

    Getting close to needing a timing belt and was wondering if there were any recommendations on a good shop to do it?

    What's up with tith this? Inspect engine accessory drive belts from 60-100,000mi & replacing @ 100,000mi maximum for fraying, excessive cracks or obvious damage (or every 10 years, whichever occurs first). Really? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I have 2013 making ticking noise , dealer says it is timing belt drive worn because of small oil gasket leak. Does not seem to make sense to me . Car has only 49000 km [ 30000miles] on it, oil changed every 5000 km. 1.4 turbo engine. any thoughts ?
