  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    For the next couple weeks I'll be testing my auto stop / start bypass that would cost you a couple bucks in parts and a couple hours to install. It will require you to press a button each time you start the car. If it works flawlessly for me for the next few weeks I'll write up a brief how to...
  2. Gen1 1.6L & 1.6L Turbo
    Hi all I'm am Aussie with a 1.6L turbo. As of this morning, the fan runs presumably at full speed all the time while the engine is running. The engine light DOESN'T come on, but I do get a message on the dash telling me the car needs a service. I have an OBD reader and there are no codes. Any...
  3. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Got my 2017 Diesel 6 sp manual about 2 weeks ago and really like it so far (1750 miles). I admit I was ready to try and get a "fixed" VW, but saw that Chevy had filled the gap and apparently has a clear approvoal from the EPA. The dealer had to expand his search radius to 700 miles to find a...
  4. Cruze Owner Projects
    Did my winter preparation on the Cruze today and also got a new Nikon camera, came up with these... Yes, I'm well aware I blurred out the plate in a couple. I posted those ones on Instagram. Girlfriend thinks they're lame so maybe you all will appreciate them:
  5. Lighting
    I'm looking into getting these headlights: 2011-2015 Chevy Cruze Projector Head Lights - (Black / Clear) A few questions: It says it comes with an H7 bulb. What does this mean? Would the H7 LED bulb I've seen floating around here in that one headlight thread work in these? I think @evo77...
  6. Cruze Parts

  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2012 LT with ~96K miles on it. The wastegate is done and I am getting ready to replace it. Question 1 I am wondering if the '16 and up turbos are a direct swap and offer any benefits over the '11-'15 turbos. It is a nightmare researching these Garrett turbos. I tried reaching out...
  8. General Discussion
    I finally test drove a cruze today, actually enjoyed it, but a lot is lost in the heat of the moment. I didn't commit to anything. It has 55k for under $10k otd. Currently have an 06 cobalt with 212k it's still a solid car but problems here and there are exceeding it's worth to me. My mpg's...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I'm hoping @XtremeRevolution can maybe help me answer a couple of questions here, but I thought I'd ask in the form of a post in case anyone else can benefit as well. Perhaps these questions have been answered before, but I haven't really found the definitive answer I'm looking for. #1: Amsoil...

  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Issue is since last week, i've had the check engine light come on twice, stays on solid for a couple of days then goes off.. then a day or so goes by then pops back on again. I have an OBDII scanner and it sees no codes. Last year I had a similar issue where it came on and again, my mechanic...
  12. Fuel Economy
    2012 1.4turbo 6 AT. Summer mileage continues to go up. I usually put on about 450-500 miles before I fill up (normally 13.5 gallons). This has gone up significantly since the warmer months have hit, my last two fill ups were 580 and 600 miles respectively (again both at 13.5 gallons). If all...
  13. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Ok, after readying pages and pages of back and forth on the Fleece vs Trifecta I think I've decided to go with the Fleece tuner as it's the more 'tame' version which is what I'm looking for. I'm NOT going to race this car or looking for any super high performance upgrades, just want to increase...

Also,could someone with the new tune please post a 0-60 video on here or youtube ? stock or lightly modded would be best, would like to compare to...
  15. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hi, I just bought a diesel Cruze and am selling my 2012 eco manual. I was holding out for a diesel manual but my wife said she didn't want to drive a stick any more because pushing the clutch was bothering her back. I really love he eco (40.6 life time mpg) but the diesel is definitely much...
  16. General Discussion
    Last night I installed my forge BOV, I was told it would be much louder then my stock BOV w/ intake. I find that not true? It is only slightly louder, but also I am finding it doesnt dump like the stock BOV did? it's an airy push and fairly quiet. Though sometimes, when really giving it some gas...

    Hello there, I am new to this forum and joined because I have a 2013 Cruze Eco. A friend (who I no longer talk to) made a lot of adjustments which ended up costing me a lot of money. He put on K-Sport coil-overs, lowered it, and adjusted the camber/toe (I think?) which ended up destroying my...
