  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2011 1.4L chevy cruze. This morning I drove it about 3 miles in 0 degrees F and was parked for about 3 hours. Tried to start it and didn’t even get a crank just a click. Tried jumping the battery and still nothing. Then replaced the battery with a brand new one and car still won’t...
  2. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    After I filled my tank with local Co-op diesel on May2 it has been running really rough until warmed up.It misses,stumbles when trying to accelerate and the engine vibrates at idle.The mileage has gone from 31 to 25mpg (all city). It seems to point to fuel but i'm wondering what issue would the...

    I have a 2018 Cruze and I noticed that the air coming from the vents is alot warmer than the outside temp. It feels as if its 15 degrees warmer than the outside temp. Is this normal?

    Hi, I'm new here... the warranty expired on our 2014, so now I'm taking care of it. I have an issue, and have seen a similar thread on the 2018, but I'm thinking 2014 is a different generation? I need to learn about that. Anyway, here's the issue: I'm in Northern MN. At this time of year...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So as the title states, I installed a cold air intake today (one of the longer ones, previously had a short ram) and now I was almost immediately met with a P1101 code. At the same time I also did installed a BNR (Forge) atmospheric bypass valve. There were no codes before the install...
  6. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    Hey so I live up in North Dakota. Over the past few weeks it has been suuuuuper cold out. I believe my car has the factory autostart that came with the 2011 Cruze. It's what came with it when I picked it up from the dealer. But lasting only 10 minutes does not really help from the freezing cold...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Went to start it up this morning and it cranked slowly for 30 seconds then started. Ran for a minute then died. Went to crank it a few more times then it seemed like it was hydrolocked. Hit the battery with a 15 amp charge for a couple hours and still going the same thing. It’s acting just like...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    I bought this car almost 4 years ago. Every winter I have the same problem. I start it and it starts hard and sputters for a few seconds and then goes back to normal. Took it in last year while I was on warranty and it wasn’t cold enough and they couldn’t find anything wrong. Yesterday was the...
  9. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I live in SoCal--it doesn't get cold here, so we don't have winterized fuel (I believe) That being said, I can drive up into the mountains here in just a couple of hours and it will be <30F. I go skiing and park it for a few hours so it gets cold. How cold does it have to be before I add...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    2014 LT2 RS 1.4T 6 speed Bought this car new, it's always been cold in the winter. Current temps are in the teens here and it's livable. I would have gotten rid of the car years ago if it didn't have heated seats. -20* temps are misserable in this car. Currently it will reach and maintain 170*...

    I bought a Spectre 9044 CAI for my 1st gen Cruze, but my wife hates it. I had on for a lap around the block and she said she would never drive it sounding like that. So...off it came and the stock air box went back on. Happy wife...happy life huh? So I guess I should just sell this 99.99% new...
  12. General Discussion
    Good Evening, For the past couple of days I noticed while the car is in motion I get heat but if I ever stop (let's say while in traffic) I'll notice it'll get cold which is odd as that shouldn't happen. Is there something I can check to isolate what the issue might be? Might be an issue...
  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey guys, Was hoping I could get some insight on this before investigating any further. I'm in PA where the weather is obviously very bipolar. Back in February I was driving up a relatively steep hill at about 15 mph and it sounded like the engine was hesitating to run. The engine light blinked...

    2015 Cruze as soon as I start it the cooling fan sound extremely fast and loud. The a/c is fully charged and it gets cold for a few minutes then starts blowing hot air. Any suggestions?
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Ac not blowing cold, fans not running at a low speed, cheapo ac gauge reads in “alert 2011 Cruze 1.4 has 106k on it, it has had the ac replaced and other bits along with it replaced in the past cause the ac ate itself (replaced 70k) It was super hot today (98 degrees) and the ac wouldn’t blow...
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2013 RS/LT Cruze with 83k miles (133k Km). About a week ago I thought my A.C. might be going bad but since we had a little cold snap so it felt normal. However now we have 90+ °F (32+ °C) weather and I'm dying in my car. No cold air. I can hear the blend door moving when I move the...

    So my Cruze is making a weird noise when it’s cold starting and it goes away once it’s warm. Any ideas?
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've got a 2012 Cruze LT/RS with the 6 speed manual, for some reason when it's cold you can barely get it into 1st or 2nd and third will grind unless you're careful, all other gears shift like butter. If it's a hot day or when the car warms up I don't have this problem. I just bled the clutch...
  19. Gen2 Powertrain
    PN#84356430 Supposedly comes with a code for a reflash. Not sure of power increase, but hey I can have an intake and tune under warranty for ~400$!! I ordered the part today (3/9/18). It wasn't available through the dealer, but I found it online. Has anyone else ordered this yet?
  20. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hello all, I have had a rotational chirping/squealing noise when the engine is cold (winter time cold).It goes away when the engine is above idle and when the engine warms up.I'm thinking a pulley bearing. I will take it in soon but i'm curious if anyone else has had the same thing happen and if...
