    Hey everyone, Happy Easter! I am looking for some advice on my 2014 1.4L Turbo (126k miles) that is having overheating issues. The problem arose when I replaced the valve cover gasket and decided to top off my antifreeze. My hand slipped and I ended up overfilling the expansion tank. No biggie...

    Hi there - I came to the site looking for information on which oil to use to do a friend's oil change on their 2012 and read through some very interesting and informative threads, a lot of which referenced a 'tiered engine oils list' link that I was really looking forward to checking out but it...

    Hello ... I have a 2013 Cruze with 1.8L engine, 175k miles. I noticed recently that the temp gauge was not getting to operating temp, so I checked the coolant level and found this. I initially thought this was oil, but I'm not sure. It is more BLACK than it is BROWN. I wiped the funnel on a...

    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...

  12. 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...

    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...

    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...
