    Is it necessary to drain the coolant before replacing the thermostat housing? Will it dump a lot of coolant if I don't? Have a 2015 with the 1.4l turbo and a check engine code for P0599 "Thermostat Heater Control Circuit High". No other symptoms or leaks evident. Thanks for your help.
  2. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey guys, I am getting ready to replace the spark plugs in my 17 premier. I was curious to know what plugs you guys use, I have the ACDelco 41-153 plugs in there currently. Also what is the torque setting that they want them at?

    I have a 2011 chevy cruze that the dash lights went out on one side, I took it off and found that there aren't any bulbs to change, it looks like a circuit board, do you have to change the whole board? or am I not seeing the bulbs to change.

    Is this all that's needed for ethanol blends for the pcm to comp the extra fuel with stock injectors? I know they limit out pretty quickly. I have a station by the house that sells E30 and would like to tune for it. Eventually I plan to go with bigger injectors for e85 but I want to try this for...
  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    I talked to my local dealer and they said they'll change the tranny fluid on my Gen 1 Diesel. I asked him what they'll put in and he said what ever the manual calls for. I asked if I brought my own would they put it in and he said yes, but he can't guarantee the validity of my powertrain...

    I left the repair shop with new pads, rotors and one new caliper. The old caliper had stuck. After I left I noticed the code P21DD (DEF tank heater?). Could they have done something to cause this? The car has 96k.

    I have had my Cruze for 3.5 years. Sadly on September 6th the vehicle was totaled. My wife was driving and did the tango with an 18 wheeler. Thank you Chevrolet for saving her life, all airbags deployed and she walked away (with help) with only a minor sprain and bruising. In August of last year...

    Looking to get rid of my 16" steelies and put on some 16" alloys. What cruze (or other GM) wheels are out there that have the same offset, backspacing, width, etc. as my '14 LS 1.8L steelies?
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello guys. my 2013 cruze is giving me the P0599 code. This came up after my wife took the car into an independent service station to have my coolant replaced. the attendant drained the coolant by removing the tube under the reservoir housing which i read is not the right way to do it but from...

    I'm at the point of changing my brake fluid. Got 50k miles, and rear brakes are squeaking, Pads on the front, and just replace the rear shoes too. I usually work alone, and bleeding brakes alone sucks. So, I thought of just use a syringe and emptying the brake reservoir with it. Then fill it up...

    Hi everyone. My car has a light switch that comes without the "OFF" position, ie, I can never turn off my lights if i want too. I have AUTO, Parking, ON. I saw this replacement on ebay: OEM Electric Power Headlight Control Switch for Chevrolet Cruze New Wonder if in the US the same part is...

    I recently had my shock/struts replaced at @70K. Something I noticed besides the improved ride and handling: My MPG seems to be up? I have a 2012 Eco with now 82K on the clock and even while using 89 octane fuel instead of 93 it seems to be improved by a few MPG. I only mention this because I...

    I have a gen 2 2016 Cruze LT and the headlamps that came stock are horrible, I live out in the sticks and need better vision at night. I bought a set of Xenon Replacement bulbs but I cannot find instructions on how to change the bulbs, there is so much stuff crammed under the hood that I cannot...

    Just curious if the difference in handling is worth switching the non zlink rear with a zlink one and if it's as simple (or almost simple lol ) as unbolting the the old and putting in the new. A complete used zlink system can be had for around $450. Has anyone ever done this?

  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    The title says it mostly. My Cruze automatic is at like 2700 rooms at close to 80 mph. I'd gladly sacrifice some RPMs and a mpg or 2 in order to change the gearing and add some more zip to this car. Goal is running a 14 something 1/4 mile. Don't tell me that's an unattainable speed because I'll...
