    New cruze owner (2011), tried a quick search to identify with no luck. I have not thoroughly searched the forums due to time crunch, if the info is already posted please point me in the right direction. Am I looking at the oil cooler sensor? Can I replace this without doing the whole wiring...

    Hello Everyone, By any chance, does anyone have pictures or a diagram that shows which is the return and feed cooler lines for the transmission fluid cooler? I am planning on doing a transmission fluid change and I want to do it through the lines to get out all of the old oil. I know the...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    So for the last couple months I’ve been smelling something burning when I start my car. Took it to the dealer on Friday and they said that my oil cooler was leaking oil onto my converter and it’s a 1000$ fix. Got a second opinion from Midas and they said my car oil cooler isn’t leaking. They...

    Does anyone have an estimate of the cost to replace the oil cooler in a 1.8L non turbo 2014. Repair pal says around 400 but Ive seen posts on here as much as 1000.
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2011 Cruze eco with a manual transmission and 150K miles. I was getting a bad smell, especially when idling after the engine was warm. Diagnosed oil leaking on cat and fixed it by replacing the oil cooler seals. Biggest job I've attempted on my own and the air is clean now. Heat is your...

    Recently had one of these lines develop a hairline crack in the flex portion. They are coolant lines made of plastic....ridiculous. Great thing about them is they are quick disconnect, so a small pick to grab the wire lock, pull away from the hose, line pops right off. Outlet oil cooler...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm currently replacing the original water pump at 75,000 miles. While draining the radiator, I noticed signs of oil in the intercooler line from the turbo to the cooler. There's someone on youtube who has removed the intercooler to be cleaned and he removed the bumper. Has anyone removed...

  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Can someone confirm that you dont have to remove the whole turbo to do this i.e. the headers. I have seen other threads, but i wanted to make certain that all I would have to do is mainly remove the Cat converter and then I would be able to have access in doing this. All beit with a bit of...
  12. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi everyone, If you monitor your Charge Air Cooler Temperatures, then what do you see? Mine usually starts at ambient when I start the engine and then hover at 150F. However, it is not unusual for me to see 280F while I accelerate onto the interstate. The A/C is on. I believe the...
  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    Please see attached photo. Numbers 1 and 2 are the accumulation points of what appears to be oil. The box is the where there is some elbow clip/seal that i believe is causing the leak. Would I be right? There is no oil leak residue visible from top side at all, so i confirm no turbo feed lines...

  15. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Good morning everyone! Well, I'm at 153K on my '14 CTD and finally got around to changing out the leaky transmission cooler lines. The lines have been seeping since about 70k, but when my transmission started to slip I knew it was time to swap them out. Sure enough the trans was about 2...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, I've found leaking or weeping on one of the transmission cooler lines on my 2012 Cruze 1.4L with 72k mi. Has anyone used aftermarket transmission cooler lines in cold weather states which leak less than the OEM ones? I know about the hand made replacements, but I don't trust myself with...
  17. Gen1 1.8L
    Hello everyone, It has been a long time since I came on here to post. My Cruze is now at 125,000 miles, been a good car so far, feel like we really connect and I know her well. I've been taking good care of her, general as well as preventive maintenance. At about 100k I successfully replaced...
  18. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    Hi all, I have repaired my transmission cooler lines for 6 dollars by buying a 3 foot length of 3/8ths TOC hose and hose clamps (which I already had). First of all, the reason the original cooler lines leak is because they are poorly designed. You will see in the pics that there is no bump...

    Recently I observed that the radiator coolant in my Chevy cruze 2012 was looking funny. When I visited the service center they informed me that the engine oil heater along with the thermostat had to be replaced. Due to this lot of heat was generated and all the gaskets were burnt. He gave me an...
  20. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I just rolled over 100,000 (100500) and I went out to dinner with my wife and I noticed a slight smell of something when I got out of the car. Thought, maybe something is up but not sure. Went home after dinner and I heard the cooling fans over the engine at a stop light. I looked at the temp...
