  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 11 cruze with the 1.4 turbo. Recently did a compression test due to burning oil that I thought was a bad turbo but not so sure now. Cylinder 3 has 210 cylinder 4 has 205. But cylinder 2 is 170 and 1 is 155. Could that be enough to cause blow by. Should I be worried about it. And should...

  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Billowing smoke and no power. ​Long post, so bear with me. So, going home Wednesday, I turned on to Michigan Ave. While accelerating, the engine started to stumble and lose power. I barely made it to 50mph and was not able to maintain that speed. All the while it was laying down a smoke screen...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is my engine trashed?! First post...bought a 2011 1.4 turbo Cruze that wasn’t running. Owner said turbo was bad, and random misfire code. So I took a chance on it. Turbo was already off and cracked so I replaced it with a new one along with all new oil and coolant lines. Idled for ten minutes...

  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I checked my oil today after filling up the car, and I noticed that the oil level is at the bottom line above the cross hatches. I changed my oil about 1500 miles ago, and it was in the middle of the top cross hatch area. I didn't let it sit very long after driving it, so I think it has probably...

    I have a tune and typically I drive with Cruise on ergo tune is off. Tonight I was driving down this long hill by my house and as usual I had th car in 5th using engine braking to maintain speed. With the tune off, the car starts @40 MPH and will accelerate to @55 if I don't watch it...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2012 Eco and when I go to a friends house and park in her driveway. If I don't set the Parking brake the car will roll backwards. I never tried this with my 1.8 so I don't know if it is a engine size problem/engine problem with not enough compression to hold the car back or even a...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, Recently been having with my 2011 Cruze (in Australia it is a Holden Cruze) It no longer holds in first gear (or any gear) on a hill. It will start slipping down. I do not believe it is the clutch, as there is no sign on slippage (even on big hills). I have marked the drive belt with chalk...

  13. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hey all! I have a question for you all. I was wondering if anyone else felt as if the front springs we have in our Eco's are too weak? Before we go any further with this I'm going to put it out there that I'm 6ft2in and 300lbs. I know I'm not a small fella and I'm sure the Cruze knows it. The...
