  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    So yes, Ive looked at many of the thousands of posts about coolant loss, the most common failure points in the system, parts to replace, and each post usually has something in common... some sort of leaky evidence giving its owner confidence in where the leak is. However this is not the case...

    Bought a used 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.4 L4 eco manual. Bad idea I know. Scrolling through the Vehicle Information menu, I can see everything but the coolant temperature. Instead I get a black screen where the coolant temperature should be. Do I have to replace the temperature sensors to fix this?
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey! So I purchased a used 2013 cruze LTZ about 9 months ago and ever since it's had the same continuos issue that no one can seem to properly diagnose, not even GM certified service. The car only has 100,000 km. I've been topping up coolant every week, there's no visible coolant leaks. And...

    Alright everyone. Here's a short history of my two Cruzes leading into today. First one: 2012 Cruze RS Red Loved the car, but after about 80k miles it needed a catalytic converter (they could find no other issues). Soon after (I drive almost 40k a year) the car crossed 100,000 and was out of...
  5. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey all, i’m trying to help my brother in law fix his 2012 Cruze. He’s getting the infamous “A/C disabled due to high engine temp” message. I replaced the temp sensor in the thermostat area and cleared the code...it worked for a couple of hours and then the code came back. So I figure it’s...

    I got a 2013 Cruze LT 1.4 Turbo and it's leaking coolant. I can see it wet right under the top coolant reservoir and leaking down below it but when I pulled it out to inspect under it, I didn't see any obvious leaks from it, not from the plastic container itself nor any of the hoses connected to...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2013 Eco. Today I ended up doing a nice pull from a stop light to the next. When I looked down after sitting at the next stop light for a couple of minutes I noticed the temp gauge was warm - it was sitting in between the middle hash mark and the 3/4 hash mark. It fluctuated back and...

    G'Day Guys! Really need some help please. 2011 Cruze 1.4 AT 123000 kms (76500 miles) Recently noticed a drop in coolant level and upon looking under the hood noticed oil "leaking" around the water pump and front left area of the engine (photo attached). Crawled under the car and noticed the...

    I seem to have a coolant leak down on the lower radiator hose(or so im assuming) The problem is it downs behind the passenger fog light and above the engine pan/skid plate and I cant see any way to easily access this without tearing apart the whole front corner of the car... Am I missing something?
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is it necessary to drain the coolant before replacing the thermostat housing? Will it dump a lot of coolant if I don't? Have a 2015 with the 1.4l turbo and a check engine code for P0599 "Thermostat Heater Control Circuit High". No other symptoms or leaks evident. Thanks for your help.
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Well I just got my turbo back on and all back together to find out the coolant return line is leaking. I didn't replace this even though I had a new line I could get it unattached from the snap on cooling line fitting thing. Do these come apart? What's the best way? Can I just replace these...

    Trying to find this sensor on the daughter’s 2014 Cruze Diesel. ACDELCO 55591401 COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR goldcruzetempsensor The problem is that the temp gauge does not ever show any reading. We installed a ScanGauge-II, it reports 40 degrees at all times. So I bought the easy to find...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2012 LTZ 1.4L Turbo. I noticed a red liquid this AM on my garage floor. Told hubby about it when I got home from work and he backed the Cruze up and found fresh red liquid on the floor. I have no engine lights, warnings, etc. It's at 91,800ish miles. We bought it used about a month ago...

    Hi!!! I have a coolant leak behind the engine. See photos below. I found similar issue here however mine seems to be leaking from under the "hose manifold", in the linked topic members discuss hose leak. Some of the questions I have: What part should I replace? Does anyone have an exploded...

  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Well, today is the day I've been looking forward to all winter. Took my cruze out of storage and on the drive home I noticed the temp gauge was a bit higher than normal (a few ticks above half way). I also noticed that the heater was not blowing hot air. Checked coolant reservoir once I got...

    Been searching posts and google the last hour and can't find exactly where the weep hole is located on the water pump. Can anyone maybe circle or highlight it in a photo and post? Here is the recall bulletin if that helps.https://gm.oemdtc.com/540/engine-coolant-leak-from-the-water-pump My '12...

    I have a 2012 Cruze LTZ, a few months ago, it started overheating and the temp sensor was all over the place and eventually would force out all the coolant from the cap on the overflow. According to what I found, I determined it to be the thermostat that was causing the issue. I replaced the...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I swapped my wife's thermostat this past Saturday and this morning her car was obviously leaking since a over heat orning came on. She checked the resevior and it is empty and also sent me the attached picture. It does not seem like there is any liquid around the seal to the thermostat but...
