  1. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I've got the 2014 Diesel. I thought I would pull the throttle body off and clean it. I could not believe how bad it looked! I've got 75k on it. I think I will be cleaning it again.

    How-To: Charge pipe clean - up. Overview: This is going to be a quick how-to for cleaning the charge pipe that is likely to leak boost over time. It gets dirt and stone inside. You may also want to remove the driver's side one and clean it, but that one was not leaking for me. The passenger...

  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, I have a 2015 Chevy Cruze 1.4T. I was wondering, I removed my valve cover and found a lot of sludge. Would it hurt anything for me to pour that cleaner on to the bearing caps and shafts to try and clean some of it out? I used some carb cleaner, I have the drain plug out of the oil pan...

    Fuel mileage loss, fix = clean the Map Sensor again. I might just buy a couple of them and replace it every 12 months while cleaning every six months. I have never had to do such a thing to any other vehicle I have owned. I have never owned a boosted car before. Cheers.

    I'm new to the Cruze world and I'm having trouble finding products that will help me keep the interior as clean as when I bought it. I did find floor mats and went with weather tech. But I'm looking for seat covers. Just for the front seats. Also something I can put in the cup holders to keep...

    So what are people using to clean and wax their Cruze? I asked a service person at my Chevy dealer and he recommended a car wax with carnuba in it. But what does one do to clean the outside of the car? Anyone have any recommendations for specific products and / or techniques? Thanks!

    This is my 2014 Cruze LT I started out first with the k and n typhoon intake then following that I wanted to do something about the stock wheels because they are so booty so I got these bad boys, Jeep Wrangler 17x8s with 1 inch adapters to make it 5x105 to 5x114.3 so I could fit those wheels I...

    The CTD I bought had low miles, but in those 4000 miles someone added DEF and spilled it in the trough around the fill cap. There are a lot of white crystals in the trough as well as in that general area. What is the best method to clean that mess up? Thanks, Chris

  11. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Has anyone out of warranty who has P0133 code attempted to clean their own sensor rather than replacing it? I ask because I have had P0133 pop up twice. The first was at about 25,000 miles. The dealer applied the fuel trim update and cleared the code. Then again about 500 miles later the code...

    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?
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Been misfiring and took a look at the plugs and Springs. Slight corrosion on 1 2 3 and real bad on 4. Bought new plugs and had new Springs but any idea how to clean the corrosion off the coil? I plan on buying a new rail when I have the money.

    Anyone "cruzing" out for the clean culture big night meet?? Not sure of too many details about the meet but I've been to their previous ones and they have amazing turn outs. Let me know if anyone wants to set up a cruise out or is going to already be there!

  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello all; so we replaced the batter earlier this year. Our 2011 Cruze LT 1.4 turbo has about 65k on it, and been a good car. However, we have been having issues with the car starting lately. If we 'tap' the negative terminal with a crescent wrench a couple of times, the car starts. I thought...

    Was working on cleaning my cruze when I noticed this on both side mirrors. Anyone know what I should use to clean this off? I have no clue on what it is, cars been out of my possession for several months since I'm military. This is the only imperfection on my baby :(

    I was participating in some extra curricular activities last night and the need arose to make a slight detour to avoid trouble. Yeah something like that. Anywho, I got some cement splashed up on my quarter panel and back door, in the same fashion mud and snow would splash up. It's been there...

    At one point I tried the Meguiars NXT wax. That was a huge mistake because it didn't last very long, and I got a little bit on the plastic around the mirrors and it left ugly white spots on the plastic. I tried everything to clean it, but seems to be impossible to remove from plastic. Someone...
