    Afternoon folks (in Aussieland anyway), Few things would make me happier than seeing the 2.0 TD engine in my 2013 Cruze Wagon last forever and ever. For this reason, I have been considering anything that can be done to prolong it's life for as long as possible. I already change the oil every...

    GM dealers here in NB Canada are recommending bringing my Cruze 1.4l in for a fuel system flush/cleaning not a super cheap process. As I have been complaining about my fuel mileage drop in significantly with 87octane fuel. So much so I stoped buying it and only using 91. I can get 7.4l/100 with...

    How do you clean the engine and areas under the hood without messing anything up? When I was replacing a hose the other day some coolant spilled and just noticed a lot of dust and dirt after almost 60,000 miles. Would like to make it look nice and clean..

    I searched the forum and couldn`t find anything so I`m thinking this really IS impossible. But has anyone found a way to clean the trunk liner in our cars? I have a 2014 2LT, but I think they all use the same material. Kinda like the fuzzy part of Velcro that has the same effect on dirt/debris...

    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!

    Considering taking my DPF into a truck shop to have the DPF cleaned on a FSX DPF cleaning machine. Problem is they need to know what the vacuum and other pressures are so that they can insure it meets specs after being cleaned. Anyone know how to find that information?

    finally the weather has been dry and started to warm up and was able to do the yearly clay bar, sealant, and wax. The Gold Mist Metallic has grown on me with the black. Wasn't a fan at first but now I am glad I bought the color. It cleans up really nice.

    I had a bit of an incident a while back with my Cruze. Some stuff got on the dash and in behind the buttons on the radio. It was all cleaned up fairly well except for what crept in behind the buttons and a bit into the front air vents. I found another thread about removing the dash plastic...

    Throttle bodies get dirty and have to be cleaned obviously from time to time. As always, looking at the butterfly plate is never enough, the front is always clean looking. The horror show is on the back. My previous vehicle, GMC Envoy, was prone to getting a bouncing idle speed and eventually...
