  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    this morning i got in my cruze 1.4 turbo and drove it to school. like normal i checked the engine temp and tire pressure. according to the computer i had 32 psi in the front and 33 in the rears. I had started at 35 in front and 36 in the rear. so i was concerned but thought with the recent cold...

    The computer has a fatal flaw. When I switch from US mpg to Imp mpg the conversion is anything but correct. For example 50 Imp mpg should be 40 US mpg but the computer gives 41.6 US mpg vice 40 mpg. It's just a simple calculation because there is 32 oz in an American quart and 40 oz in an...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I gotta ask. Is it possible (with one of those computer tunes) to make the manumatic NOT downshift into first gear? If it is possible the only problem I could see is the car not going into neutral at low rpm's and getting messed up because its no longer...
  7. Gen1 Powertrain
    I don't understand the reasoning behind the computer controlled thermostat. Sometimes I've heard people say it allows the motor to warm up faster but I don't see any difference between my Cruze and my GMC pickup with an old-fashioned mechanical thermostat. The Cruze doesn't warm up any faster...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    In my other thread about the 1.8 valve adjusters one of the replies had a link to the GM Powertrain web site. I read through the specs on the 1.8 Cruze motor and it said the 1.8 has a computer controlled thermostat. Somehow I thought only the 1.4 turbo used that and the 1.8 has a conventional...
  9. Electron Performance
    Thinking of this as a new concept. Desktops, to Laptops to Mobile phones, Pda, etc.. How about a car computer :D ? I need maximum inputs. Imagine a kick ass computer in your car, that probably does all the things that a regular computer does + you guys can re-configure/design your own display...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    Black/black LTZ. How often do you guys change the oil in your Cruzes? My local mechanic says 5,000 is a good rule of thumb. I'm a little over 5,000 but my computer says there is 50% oil life remaining. Wondering your thoughts. Thanks.

  13. Fuel Economy
    Hello. Just got my cruze on Saturday. I have driven it about 100 miles (so its at 15miles) and I am just two lines above half of tank (58% full according to onstar). My computer is saying my average MPG is 14.5 and onstar is saying 17 mpg. 1)how can there be such a big difference? 2)Why is it...
  14. Gen1 Powertrain
    My buddy has a turbocharged HHR and bought a computer upgrade that gets him more horsepower and better MPG. Does anyone know if GM has or is coming out with such a thing for the Cruze? The only thing i've done so far is drop in a K&N air filter. I'm pretty happy overall with the car but the...
  15. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I'll be picking up my new red Cruze Eco next week and am looking at options for the fog lights. According to gmpartsdirect, the computer needs reprogrammed after the install. It this true? If so, it might just be easier for me to have the dealer install them. I have read over the other fog light...
