  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    So, I have a 14 Cruze with 1.4t, got the P0171 this morning. I still have a few months of powertrain warranty remaining. Are there any scenarios where the problem could be fixed for free or do I need to bend over?
  2. Gen2 Powertrain
    Just been diagnosed with the dreaded cracked piston. '17 Premier Hatch with 20k on it. Are the other 3 pistons a ticking time bomb? Should I trade it off asap after the first piston gets fixed?
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi Guys, The dreaded P0171 has reared its ugly head again ... Reading through previous posts on this forum I have already checked/done the below - Cleaned the MAF sensor a couple of times. The CEL goes away before coming on again after about 300 Kms. - Checked the diaphragm in the valve cover...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    Dealer replaced valve cover last year and stated intake was inspected and ok. Now a little over 1 year later I have this bird chirping noise under the hood. While trying to locate the noise I remove the oil cap and realized what seems to be an extreme amount of blow by. I checked the vent in...

  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Last week, I started getting the Battery Saver Active notification on my DIC. Put it on a charger and noted that the battery ( 1st charge attempt) was at 64 % and would go no higher than 69% on an extended charge. After a long drive of about 40 miles, got alert again , hack would not work and...

    So this morning I saw, for the second time in 76,000+ miles the "dreaded" speedometer sweep to 100 MPH. The tach didn't move nor did the engine speed change. Stopped on level ground at a stop light so the clutch was in and foot off the brake. I tapped the throttle and the speedometer...

    Well, cold weather is back and so is that dreaded rattle in the rear passenger side of the car. Has anyone made any progress on figuring out how to fix it?
  10. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I have been slowly hooking up my system using XR's SQ thread as a template. Over the weekend I hooked up the Vifa tweeters and I get the high frequency whine. I searched the forums but most of them seem to be kinda open ended, but the most common suspect seems to be the PAC unit. I am...
  11. General Discussion
    I have heard from some car guys that the best way to avoid this is to never run in recirculate mode and always run fresh air inside... This is what I have always done on my 2000 Silverado and it it has 213,000 mildew free miles, but the Cruze seems to get the mildew smell more from fresh air on...

    So i recently filled up with 89 octane, i waited until my tank was almost empty. First thing i noticed was more pick up when trying to get on the highway. I am now at about a quarter a tank and my car claims i'm getting 34.2mpg. Soon as i filled up, on the ride home i was getting mid to high...
