    Chevy's New 1.5L Engines Are Melting Themselves | Shifting Lanes The new 1.5L turbo engines are melting their pistons deeming them inoperable. The last thing you want from a new car is an engine that melts itself but some Chevy customers who drive the new Malibu and Cruze are experiencing just...

    I didn't see anything on this. Sorry if it was already posted. A friend of mine at a dealership said that they have had to replace pistons on four new vehicles so far. Chevy's New 1.5L Engines Are Melting Themselves | Shifting Lanes

    Found this online when researching to convert my 02 Silverado over to E85. It is a little dated since it was published in 2011 but explains a good bit in detail. http://www.liquidsunenergy.com/learning/ppt/ice.pdf

  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I thought some of you would be interested in seeing what the engines used in the Australian Cruze looked like. Series I, 110kw 320nm torque single cam, belt driven. And this is the series II which replaced the series I in 2011, 120kw 360nm torque duel cam chain driven. The pictures of the...

    I've been reading a lot of posts about the trifecta tune and am definitely interested! Any chance of getting another group buy setup for the near furture? I get paid the 15 th :)
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This weekend I took my 2014 1LT for the first long drive since I bought it. Went about 477 miles and got 38.2 MPG. On the way there the DIC said 44.2 MPG, but there was a strong head wind on the way home. I checked the oil when I filled up tonight, and it is in between the bottom hash marks and...

    I looked but didn't see another post about the Cruze TD engine being selected one of Ward's bests. Take a look at the text here: Diesels, Turbos Dominate 2014 Ward’s 10 Best Engines | Ward's 10 Best Engines content from WardsAuto. Sorry if this is a duplicate or old news...just saw it today on...

    ERROR! The 2015 Cruze will NOT have two NEW engines! The LEA 2.4L and LHU 2.0LT engines belong to the Verano. I appologize for MY error, which arose from GM giving both Cruze and Verano the Vehicle Code " P ", which (ironically) points to the fact that they are essentially the same vehicle...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just noticed the other day while draining my oil I had to pull the oil dipstick out for the oil to flow smoothly. I also noticed the dipstick and oil fill plug have o-rings on them to seal air and oil. Why would they do this?? Down the road with many miles on the car not you only have to worry...

    I need a new car for the wife but buying the very last year of a model line doesn't appeal to me. Also the Cruze gas motors are pretty old tech compared to some of the new stuff coming out which can only assist in fuel efficiency and performance. When can we expect the new body style and...

    This is a press release from Chevrolet. "The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze will make proper oil filter disposal and recycling easier. The Ecotec 1.4L turbo and 1.8L four-cylinder engines will use a cartridge style oil filter which is easier to recycle and service compared to the conventional steel...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    I'm sure its still too early for this discuss, but I would like to know if somewhere down the road, would the Cruze be a viable candidate to have V6 engine? I like the market the Cruze will compete in, where 4 cylinder engines get maximum output and make decent cars, it would be a nice...
