    Hey Cruzers, been lurking here close to 2 years now and I've just started a few of many projects that I plan to do with the CTD. One of them being as such, installing aftermarket fog lights on the 2015 CTD and getting them to turn on thru the BCM via the stock GM headlight switch. The Problem...

    Just purchased a black 2014 CTD! Black on black with nav and blind spot sensors, this will be my third Cruze. I had a black 2011 Eco manual and a green 2014 Eco manual that was sadly totalled last week. Anything I should know? It did have the recall issue fixed. I'm going to miss driving a...

    So I recently had a bad situation go worse. Yesterday driving home from work I ran over something that shredded the front passenger tire to the point I instantly lost all air pressure and immediately got a warning. I pulled over and the car sat overnight until my father who is in town could try...
  5. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    Hey guys, I've been browsing this site for a few months and finally decided to join as a member. I'm a local car dealer from NC, and love the idea of diesel cars as commuters. My only experience prior to owning a Cruze Diesel is having a 2002 Jetta TDI that had nearly 250,000 miles before it...

  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    After a good run, I finally pulled the trigger and sold my CTD and bought a 2018 Volt LT. I have to admit, I was a bit sad and apprehensive since, for the most part (aside from a few failures like HPFP, DEF heater, sensors), the CTD had been pretty good to me, and I loved driving it. However, my...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So I’m 6 months into owning my diesel Cruze and love it. Haven’t had any issues with any emissions related components yet and only had to fill the DEF once. I know in due time it’ll cause problems (egr, dpf, etc). My question is does anyone here on the forum have a delete on their diesel Cruze...

    Hi all, I currently own a '14 CTD and went out for a test drive in a '17 Sonic 1.4T and really like the way it drives. I'll say that I've had absolutely no problems with the Cruze so far, but I'm wondering if it would be worth it to trade it in for something (albiet) slightly newer. I've got...

    So my Cruze is making a weird noise when it’s cold starting and it goes away once it’s warm. Any ideas?
  11. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Almost a year ago, I had a flat on Interstate 10 in Arizona. The factory flat failed to inflate the tire; all of the sealant just ran out the hole. But, I did have AAA, so they gave me a lift into town where I had the tire replaced, and bought another cannister of sealant from gm for about $30...

    Last time he sent oil in for analysis at 65,500 miles people could scarcely believe their eyes, yet the lab said "re-sample in 7500 miles." Brad knows AMSOIL is made of pixie dust, unicorn tears, and Abe Lincoln's beard hairs, brewed in an oak barrel made from the remnants of the USS Liberty, so...

    Do you guys know of any wheel spacers made specifically for the the CTD? I know the lug pattern is different (5x115) but I would also prefer them to be hubcentric.
  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I had my DEF tank heater replaced under some special warranty at 44,500 miles maybe around Oct 2017, dealer topped off DEF when they performed replacement. Now I am at 58,500 and have driven 14,000 miles, my DEF % just hit 35% left, if I do a little math and ran to empty it would be 21,500 miles...
  15. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Have 15 Diesel and the trunk latch was getting lazy, at first I thought it was extreme cold, well it’s worse now really won’t open. Wouldn’t be a huge deal but I have 13500 miles on since I added DEF. the 35% indicator has not displayed yet which seems odd. I drive lot of highway miles. Anyone...

    Hey there. So I filled up diesel at Husky today for $64 and then I go to check my estimated range and it says 502km only. Usually it’s around 750 to 800. I feel like my CTD is not nearly as efficient as it should be. Any ideas why it could be doing this.
  17. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Over the past week here in MI we've had the coldest temps so far when starting my car. I had -17F last week and the car barely started. I had a Stanley jump battery go dead while trying to get it to start and finally had to have the wife jump the car with her 3/4 ton truck. (car started just...
  18. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    As described in a different the I'm having trouble with fuel gelling. I found this in the owner's manual for my '17 CTD and wonder if anyone can expound? What parts are heated? How strongly are they heated? When are they heated? Etc.
  19. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hey there. So I recently bought a used 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel for a good deal. My friend has a 2015 Chevy Cruze Diesel aswell and I notice whenever I’m with her her’s exhaust note is deeper and has way less clatter. Is there any reason why mine has way more clatter and doesn’t sound as good as...
  20. Gen2 Powertrain
    My 2017 Cruze Diesel with manual transmission did not come with an oil pan heater. The dealership told me it had one but in reality it did not. So after much research, I have found very little info on the 2017 Cruze turbo diesel oil pan heater. Here is what I have found. If equipped "new" the...
