    Hello, I just recently changed my valve cover and gasket with OEM. I torqued cover in sequence with 71in.lbs. I scraped off old gasket remnants and used black high temp gasket maker silicone where timing chain cover meets the head. No signs of oil leaking anywhere from valve cover. My issue I am...

    Hello, I changed the battery in my cruze last week to a costco H5 650 CCA battery. It ran fine for about two days, then i started noticing some issues. The car starts fine but the air conditioning / heating does not come on, and only my passenger side lights / rear lights come on. What is...

    Hi all, I just changed my air filter at 130,000. I am second owner of car so not sure if it was actually ever changed prior as it was pretty dirty. Well I changed the air filter and then the next day I noticed rough idle and a check engine light. I got the codes from the check engine which...

    So I saw this 'great deal' on Amazon, for a set of Milestar MS932 tires. Never heard of the brand, sport tires, $50 a piece, what can go wrong eh? Well, they arrived well, looked good, came 'fresh from the factory'; still had their initial silicone stickiness, and fresh rubber smell on them...

    My 2014 CTD (127,000 miles) was shifting very rough. This was especially noticeable when taking your foot off the gas and letting the car coast before a stop light etc. I took it to Chuck & Meredy's in BigRapids and they did a drain and fill with Amsoil. Total amount drained was about 1...

    The owners manual for my 2014 CTD says 10 years or 97000, the dealer service information shows 3 years or 97000. If that's the case, looks like it's time to replace the timing belt. The water pump already appears to have a slow leak any way.

    I just visited the center, put in my Vin# (sometimes clearing cookies wipes out the stored information) and it says I have no recalls however I might have recalls. Is bad news on the way, it never had said this before...

    2011 Crue eco, I have a humming noise in the front end that sounded "almost" like a bearing going bad. When I turned left it was quiet when I turned right it got louder. I replaced both front bearings, and the noise is still there. Its louder at lower speeds, and when I get going 55-65 I cant...

    Changed from Diesel Kleen to Stanadyne Blue. Engine is more quiet with Stanadyne Blue x2 dose. I use an additive to protect the pumps and increase the Cetane to produce less soot. I have been running DK since first day of use. Cheers. Will update after a couple tanks.

    I took my 2013 Chevy Cruze to a local dealer today and was shown to have a leaky oil pan gasket, which was repaired under warranty. I forgot to tell them that I use full synthetic oil and they filled it back up with synthetic blend. Will this cause any problems and if not, how soon should I have...

    Yesterday I shimmied under the car and opened the water drain into not one, not two, but four clear glass receptacles. About three quarts in total. Everything that drained out looked like water. Crystal clear, with only a hint of hydrocarbon odour. The water drain had never previously been...

    36 month warranty is about to expire, no way can I hit that 36K mile mark, unless I tour the USA, Mexico, and Canada. Wonder if I should get day credit for the number of days this thing sat in the shop for warranty repairs. Or can I punch days out when leaving the country for several weeks...
