    Hi folks, I was just wondering if anybody has treated their steering wheel with one of those custom, hand-stitched leather covers? I really don't like my wheel as it is at the moment, and really like the look of these (I've included a couple of photos of what I'm looking for). If I did...

    Hello, My 2014 Cruze has 93,000 miles on it and have discovered the squeaky noise coming from the engine. By a previous post discovered by pulling the dip-stick the noise went away, so the PCV may be an issue, I checked it and everything there is fine its not sucking any air. So, its the crank...

  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    I was looking under the hood of my daughter's 2012 Cruze 2LS (~60k miles, 1.8 liter LUW) and noticed oil leaking. It appears to be coming from around the valve cover. Reading the forum, I've learned the 1.4 turbo is known for leaking there, with the PCV being the underlying cause. Is the 1.8...

    Just a quick question if anyone knows how to remove the light cover on a gen 2 sedan license plate light? There are no visible screws I see to undo to remove. So, for the life of me I've tried looking for ways with trim removal tools to get this cover off but no luck.
