    So I just got my car back from my local Mechanic. He States that my purge valve solenoid is the cause of burning excess oil. I think not. I was sitting at the Toyota dealership near my house getting my wife's car serviced. My nephew and I were sitting in my car windows up just listening to...

    I have a 14 Cruze 2.0 TD. Bought it new. Currently have 369000 miles. Been a great car. Lately I have noticed a smell of burning oil inside the car, as well as out. Slight wisps of smoke from under the hood. I opened the hood and the smoke is coming from the gap right by where the hood latches...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello guys. I just put a new turbo on my 1.4 and all was well until 3 or 4 days after. The car started burning oil really bad under hard acceleration. Even moderate acceleration. It starts jerking and spark knocking then a plume of what looks like white smoke comes out of the exhaust. I went...

    Hi All, Hoping to get some opinions on my recent issue. So I had oil leak from camshaft (valve) cover gasket and I decided to replace it. Just the gasket, I know PCVs are common to fail but mine was still good so I only ordered a brand new genuine AC Delco gasket. I replaced it as shown by...

  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I did the PCV check valve kit a while ago. Lately have been noticing a burning oil smell, and had a buddy following me and I am getting oil smoke (blue) out of the exhaust, and have oil in my intake plumbing. 135k miles, no CEL. First thoughts are turbo seals, and second is possibly the...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So, I have a 2013 Cruze LT with the 1.4 turbo. 125, 000 kilometres(Canada) later I got the common burnt oil smell in the cabin. I looked at the motor and saw a leaking water pump, AND a leaking valve cover gasket. I decided to replace the valve cover gasket first and drive it for a bit. Sure...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    When parked or stopped at lights, my air blows in a burnt oil smell, I figured out that it is my valve cover gasket, there is a leak. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about changing this myself, really can’t afford labor fees at some shop, TIA

    Have a 2016.5 Cruze with about 30K miles. Yesterday I drove it for 2 30-minute trips. At the beginning of the first trip there was a very strong burnt plastic smell coming into the cabin. It continued for the rest of the two trips, albeit not quite as strong as when we first started. I...

    Hello new to the site, bought a Chevy sonic with 62k after about a month car started to run rough and blowing grey smoke from tail pipe. I disconnected PCV hose from the intake and saw bunch of oil in the hose. The way I understand how this valve works is its open one direction and restricted...

  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is my engine trashed?! First post...bought a 2011 1.4 turbo Cruze that wasn’t running. Owner said turbo was bad, and random misfire code. So I took a chance on it. Turbo was already off and cracked so I replaced it with a new one along with all new oil and coolant lines. Idled for ten minutes...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I checked my oil today after filling up the car, and I noticed that the oil level is at the bottom line above the cross hatches. I changed my oil about 1500 miles ago, and it was in the middle of the top cross hatch area. I didn't let it sit very long after driving it, so I think it has probably...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze LT, 1.4L. Recently, I have noticed while driving with my heater on, a nasty burning smell. When I turn the heater off, the smell dies down. One time, I even had a little bit of white smoke coming through the A/C vent. The smell does not happen immediately, but after...

    Hello All, I have a '12 Cruze 1.8L. Less than 1 year ago, my driver side headlight burnt out. Low beam did not work, high beam worked. I replaced both of them with brighter halogens. Then today, I noticed the same driver side bulb is out again. Same issue, low beams do not work, but high beams...

    Hi guys, My cruze started making a clunk noise shifting from park to reverse, right after the clunk and jolt I hear noise coming from the transmission. It sounds like fluid being mixed slowly. Earlier today I smelled a clutch burning while driving (i have automatic)... Seemed to be coming from...
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I recently took a long road trip. The last stretch was from Reno to San Francisco over the Sierra mountains - about 200 miles. There are a lot of 5-6% downgrades. I downshifted a lot to keep from overheating the brakes. When I got home the oil level was down a little. It makes me wonder if the...

    I have two 2012 chevy cruzes, one has about 50,000 on it and has the 1.8 and the other has 110,000 and has the 1.4.
