  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm interested in testimonials about signs of a Turbo that is starting to get "tired." Is there a sound it starts making etc? I have a sound I hear when I accelerate that I've not heard before. I'm wondering.....the car has 78,000 on it. It isn't burning oil. It is hard to describe. So...

    so i got engine oil cooler replaced it seems like oil was mixing with coolant, but no traces of coolant mixing with oil, should i change the oil or will i be fine. I put the car for sale and only plan on holding it for a month or 2, and i'm sure new owner will replace oil after buying it.
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    So I'll post this under powertrain but i suppose it could go under electronics too. The other night in my garage, I was messing around with manual door lock on my Cruze. I put the key in the slot and was unlocking the car. However, I got in and pushed the button and brake to start the car (2013...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    I've been told by my mechanic that GM has a "hidden" warranty that covers a turbocharger failure up to 100,000 miles regardless of the year of the vehicle. I have a 2011 Cruze with 90K miles that I bought used and my mechanic said there is oil in the inlet that is a sign of imminent failure...

    Hi guys, haven't posted here in a while. Having some issues with the cruze. '13 Eco M6,128.5k miles. Transmission bearings are whining pretty good. Would like some advice as to what options are out there for replacing the transmission. Seems like buying a used one is possibly a time bomb as...
  6. Gen2 Service Issues
    Good Morning fellow Cruzers, I have a 2018 Cruze 1.4 Turbo, only 4k miles. I was coming home from work on a transition from one Freeway to another on a long curve. lights and alarms went off on the dash, I look down and it said "steering assist limited drive with care" . The steering wheel was...

  8. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Today, after exiting the highway after 200+ mile drive, upon acceleration from a dead stop I heard/felt a very loud clunking/banging under the center right engine compartment. The condition only occurs on acceleration, identical noise in all forward gears. No CELs, everything running OK...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    This is a longstanding issue with all Chevy Cruze cars for several years now! Chevy have not addressed this problem and we all are suffering because Chevrolet continue to produce vehicles with the same design flaw, and there is a solution not a Chevrolet one yet though! The intake...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    We bought our Cruze new in 2013. Been fairly happy with it, with just over 48,000 miles. The only problem we have had is the apparently common grinding when shifting from first to second under hard acceleration. After that experience I researched it and found on this site that they all do it...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi All, After several discussions with Chevy about the failed transmission in my daughter's 2011 Cruze 1.8L (only 98,000 miles), I've taken it upon myself to find out how many other owners have experienced the same $4,000 nightmare. If you have had a total transmission failure requiring a...
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello everyone, I am somewhat new to the forum, but have been reading and finding tips on here for years and you guys are great! My wife bought her 12 Cruze 6 speed brand new and it currently has 135K on it. After having a burst disc (second one, first one occurred at 75K) in the valve cover I...
  13. Gen1 1.8L
    I bought my 2013 Cruze a year ago, took it to my mechanic I trust because I was noticing a rocking when I was stopped at a stop light. Thought it might be time to change my transmission fluid, good thing I checked and didn’t ignore it because my fluid was jet black with metal flakes....yay...
  14. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Have any of you had the DPF fail either under warranty or outside of warranty? How many miles? Did they diagnose what caused the DPF to fail (root cause analysis) or just say the DPF itself failed? What type of oil did you use? Dexos2, C3 , or other non-recommended types of oil (Rotella...

    It’s to the point where this needs to be done let’s all work together to get GM to recognize the manufacture defect in the check valves Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    After doing some research, I have found that there is one aftermarket option being marketed by Dorman part number 615-380. This intake manifold is sold without the fuel rail, injectors, and throttle body but also comes at half the cost at $165 via ebay. But they appear to be scarce. Here are the...

  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I bought a 2011 1.4L Cruze a few months back with roughly 100k miles. A few days ago, I noticed that the heater was struggling to keep up, but I assumed that it was just the cold weather we'd been having.. About 10 degrees F or so. So yesterday and today the heater has not been working at all...
  20. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey everyone, I recently discovered I have been living under a rock so I should get in touch with the Cruze community! I have been having some frustrating problems with my Cruze this past week. My car was getting very high temp and the display notified me of "A/C Off Due to High Temp" and...
