  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello everyone! I have a 2013 Cruze with 128k miles on it and just noticed today there was a wet spot on my garage floor when I came home from work. Where I live we are in fall weather, 30-40 °F (-1-10 °C), so its not from condensation or my A/C compressor. I opened the hood and saw the coolant...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    2016 Chevy Cruze Limited LT, bought in late ‘17, with 20,500 miles on it. I currently have 44k on it. It’s a 1.4 EcoTec Turbo. A couple days ago it had coolant issues. For the first time, and after driving to & from my house a couple times, I got a message pop up on my dash that said “AC off...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    After draining the coolant and replacing my thermostat housing, I have run into an issue while prepping to bleed the system. The plastic bleeder valve has quite literally disintegrated while trying to remove it. I attempted to be as gentle as possible, but any force applied to the valve has...

    New guy here. Bought a 2014 LS 1.8 with ~130k miles on it March 2021. Recently I found out I have a coolant leak, and I'm looking to work on my own car so I guess this is the perfect car for me. I am in the process of preparing to replace the thermostat housing and the throttle body inlet pipe...

    2012 Chevy Cruze LT 1.4 My water outlet broke recently so i replaced it. As well as flushed the coolant through the plug that's under the car. The replacement came with it's own sensor so the old sensor was tossed. Since then my coolant temp gauge doesn't seem to surpass 1/4, fluctuates from...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have scoured the internet for the last couple hours as well as the forums here, and I can’t for the life of me find the answer I’m looking for. These Cruze talk forums have been extremely helpful for the last few weeks so I figured I’d create and account and ask the experts... I have a 2014...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I finished a head job recently on my cruze and I have hopped through a bunch of hurdles as is, but now it overheats! the coolant boils over into the revisor tank and overflows... great! First thought of course is that I messed up the head gasket, but I got a new head, felpro gasket, new...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey Guys, I have been dealing with a severe overheating problem with my 2011 Cruze 1.4 LT. The car could not make it more than 1/2 a mile up the road without coming up to max temperature and giving me a warning to idle the engine. The coolant level is fine and I have replaced the thermostat...

    I have a 2013 Cruze 1.4 turbo, 6 speed. I know there have been common issues with the cooling fan, specifically the resistor failing. Mine seems to fail within a year of replacement. I have been replacing them with a Dorman brand unit from O’Rielly (lifetime warranty, thank goodness). It is a...

    2012 Cruze LT. I’ve been through hell with this car, replaced the engine less than a year ago, have replaced several leaking coolant hoses, My car overheated on me, I made it home and realized one of the hoses was disconnected and a little shot. I replaced that and it’s no longer leaking...

    Hey Cruze Fam , I need some suggestions. I recently purchased a used 2011 Cruze lt from a small dealership, everything checked out, clean car fax, two owners, low mileage, excellent Condition, great price. Well I only had the car for 3 weeks and I got the “AC off due to high engine temp” so I...

For the love of Chevy Cruze replace those hose clamps, your hands will thank you. Parts and price below, this is CA so prices might be...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I had to replace the hose on my '14 Cruze because I was driving and saw smoke, pulled over, and the upper radiator hose was spewing coolant! I took it home and un-did the hose and notice the actual water outlet was broken! Anyone have any ideas on how exactly this piece was damaged like this...

    Can anybody confirm or know for a fact that Amsoil antifreeze is safe to use in a 2014 Chevy Cruze diesel 2.0 LUZ considering they use dexcool Stock in this car?
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, so I believe I had the recall waterpump replaced early in my 2013 LS’s life. Then in Nov of 2018 my second water pump busted wide open. I got it replaced with a new oem. 13 months later in Dec 2019 this one started leaking too. It’s leaking only a few drops at a time, not enough to drip to...
  18. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze 1.4t that I just replaced the motor with a used motor because the head gasket went on the original one. I heard the motor run and scanned the computer and everything seemed good. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Im having a reoccurring issue that started...
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey everyone, my Cruze has recently been losing a lot of coolant. The reservoir will be empty after about 2 weeks if I don't fill it up. After looking at the car it seems to be one of the hoses connecting to the water outlet, since that's where I'm finding all the excess coolant dripping from...
  20. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey! I have the MT and sometimes now I’m smelling slight coolant smell coming through my air vents. I have no leaks tho and when changed my MT fluid my mechanic said there are no leaks, he said the clutch starting to go out could cause similar smells. My clutch hasn’t been slipping at all. Any...
