  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. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Are there any You Tube videos on changing the oil/oil filter and 9 speed automatic transmission fluid in the 2019 1.6L diesel Cruze? I like to do my own simple maintenance tasks. Perhaps there is a service manual available I'm not familiar with.

    Bought my 2014 Chevy Cruze in June of 2018. I’ve had a couple of issues with him and have frequently read this forums to figure them out. I’m thankful for everyone here!

    I originally searched the forum and google to see if a heated leather steering wheel could be added to my Cruze. I didn't find anyone that has done it. So I bought a used steering wheel and i did it anyways, figuring leather would be nice upgrade alone. Unfortunately the heat didn't work when i...

    First actual post, (I'd be happy to be shown a way to search existing posts - I don't get anywhere searching on this forum!) I have 2013 Cruze LS. I've just discovered today after opening up the panels, it does not have an existing PDIM for me to replace. After much searching I discovered...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    So as I posted a few days ago here (http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/25-gen1-service-issues/233538-c-not-blowing-cold-air.html), my A.C. hasn't been blowing cold. I noticed that the radiator fan was not ever kicking on after a long drive and took it into the dealership to have them diagnose it...

    Well here it goes, this is my project....2014 Cruze Diesel with 93k miles, bought from the infamous Copart auction(yay). I have mixed feelings about that "wonderful" business, but that's a whole other thread. I decided that my last auction vehicle was not worthy enough for my 80mi/day drive as...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just completed XR's great coolant flush and water outlet replacement DIY instructions. I found my old water outlet was coated in thick white scaling. This is from a 2012 Cruze with 72k miles. Does this white scaling exist within the entire cooling system - engine, radiator, hoses...
  12. General Discussion
    So I've been a long time lurker of Cruzetalk for several months now, I've read almost every "How-To:" and several other daily threads. I've gained a lot of knowledge about the Cruze from this forum as well as it's users. I've also been watching Youtubers such as: Chris Fix, Scotty Kilmer, and...

    With winter not too far off in its full force, I finally got around to beefing up my mud guards. I have been running with a set of aftermarket mudguards on Amazon for quite a while. Recently bought another set to replace one of the front ones that broke. After that I went over to the store to...

    Hello guys, I recently changed my own car battery after it died on me. This problem came after jumping the car to start it AND changed the battery to a new one. Windows go up or down 30 seconds after the engine is on. The problem is when accesory power (turning the key on before ignition) is on...

    I have done all of my own oil changes on the Gen 1 Cruze. It's super easy on the gen 1 and only takes me about 15 minutes. I don't even lift the car. I have an oil drain container that fits perfectly underneath. The oil change place I used in the past wants $69 for the Cruze because it requires...
  18. General Discussion
    Hey all i'm new to this forum and I'd like to start off by saying I own a 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited Lt and it's by far my favorite car I've owned. It's a shame that I haven't got around to doing any aftermarket modifications to it since I bought it though. This is where my issue arises. I want...

    For 2011-2015 Cruzes and 2016 Cruze Limiteds made in the United States and Australia only. These directions are for updating from the basic 4" radio to a NON-Navigational Mylink radio ONLY. 1) Buy a Mylink silver box specifically from a Chevrolet Cruze. I recommend part number 84026635 or...

    Many of you have seen that GM was kind enough to leave the wiring behind in 2012 Cruzen so you can just plug-n-play a glovebox light. All of this is explained in the HOW TO: Install A Glove Box Light in 2012 Cruze by silverram323. Of course, GM being GM, the wiring was deleted on 2013 and...
