    So my PVC went up end of fall. Swapped in a new valve cover and it's leaking at all the bolts. Pulled it off noticed no o-rings. So I popped on a few at the heads. Still leaking, most seemed to come off anyways when I tightened the bolts down. Any suggestions on how to get a good seal? Or did I...

    I've check my PCV system no change in idle when i cover the diaphragm and then orange "arrow" is there and the hose blows air freely when it when you blow and completely stops when I try to pull air threw it. It does look super greasy in there us this normal? So it sounds like a constant...

    Hey there, 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.4 Liter Turbo LT So long story short whilst replacing the valve cover gasket one of the bolts that are on the valve cover got cross threaded. The bottom two rows of the bolt broke off. Now it won't screw back in securely. (My fault obviously). It now leaks from the...

    I got the check engine light a few days ago. I replaced the valve cover however I didn't have a torque wrench so I did it by hand I originally read it as foot lbs so I am only new realizing I may have WAY over tightened it out of ignorance. Snug tight + 6oclock. There is no bead of oil that I...

    Hi all, I have looked all over the forums and trying to find something about replacing the timing front cover gasket and can't find anything. Maybe because there are so many posts.. Anyway What I really needed to know is do we have to pull the whole timing chain off to replace the gasket ...

    1. Is 11570729 or 11611451 the correct number for the driverside? 2. How do you install it? 3. How do you remove the old one? 4. My old one is still intact on the pillar as I pulled my garnish off very slowly and it ended up just bending and deforming off the tether. Is there a way to reuse...

    I have a 2013 RS/LT Cruze with 83,000 (133,500 km) on it. While I was filling up one day I noticed these weird chips on the car. I think that the clear-coat was somehow damaged and I'd like to fix it or get it fixed. I tried posting on a detailing forum on Reddit and only got a couple of answers...

    Hi there, Owner of a Chevy Cruze LTZ 2014. About two weeks ago the car started having a rough idle when the check engine light came on, engine seemed to be making a squealing sound, and even the battery died one day. Chevy Dealership said it was a valve cover and manifold replacement to fix...
  17. General Discussion
    There are countless threads and articles online, about engine covers, and how some people hate them. Personally, I prefer an engine cover, but seeing that my car suffers from heat soak, I was thinking if perhaps removing the engine cover will help cool the pistons a bit? I'm not sure if the...

    My parts lady told me the 1.4L valve cover is on national backorder. She didn't tell me when they'd be available. Has this caused any issues for anybody here, and any idea when it'll be available?
