    My 2012 Cruze is coming up on 100k and I’m thinking of changing the ATF. I got the vehicle at 25k and haven’t done it yet. I’ve read quite a bit on here so I’m confident it’s something I can do myself. I see a lot of people like the Amsoil signature series. What are your thoughts on the...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2012 1.4T auto with 119000 miles. I am getting positive pressure out of the valve cover @ idle. I believe this is causing the oil leak I have. The car only leaks under load, and most of the expelled oil is located low on the passenger side of the engine compartment. I am going to do...

    I was getting 510+ miles average per fill and the past fill up range said 450. Today filled up and it went to 464. My driving style and highway/city miles hasn't changed. I know there is prob 100 different reasons for this but anyone have any ideas? Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Stock 2013 Cruze 1.4 Auto 102,500 miles Past few months I've been hearing a squeaking coming from under the hood of my car. At first I thought it was the serpentine belt, so I replaced it with no luck. Then I thought it was the serpentine belt tensioner, so I replaced that with no such luck...

Around 75-80,000 miles check engine light came on(po299).Around the actuator rod the turbo was cherry red.Took it into the dealer.mentioned the...
  6. Gen2 Service Issues
    Just got a 2017 RS Hatch and did my first fill-up last week.I wanted to do a few fill-ups to see if the issue repeated itself and it did. Each time i fill my tank, the gas gauge only gets to the second to the last line on the gauge before the Full line. Also, I purposefully ran the car longer on...
  7. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    My DEF tank was down to 25% so I figured I'd put some more in. I grabbed a 2.5gal peak box and dump it all in so I should be about 80% full but it still reads at 25%. How long after you add some def does it read the new level? Do you have to fill it to full before it reads you added some? I...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So, as a result of my recent shift flares when cold, I decided it would be a good idea to change fluid again. As per the good advice in the DIY thread, I started with the fill plug. I put my T50 snugly down in there and started turning, but something didn't feel right. I tried pulling it out...

    In other words....do you fill up @ 1/2? 1/4? Below E? Fuelly really helps look at that...i average a little over 14 gallons per fill, usually the DIC has read "low" for a few miles. Don't think there's anything wrong with that, as long as i dont push it too much and run it dry.

    2012 1.4turbo 6 AT. Summer mileage continues to go up. I usually put on about 450-500 miles before I fill up (normally 13.5 gallons). This has gone up significantly since the warmer months have hit, my last two fill ups were 580 and 600 miles respectively (again both at 13.5 gallons). If all...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    I've talked to two people lately who had their manual transmission serviced at a GM dealership, one of which is a heavy line dealer tech. Remember when GM filled our transmissions to 1.6-1.8 quarts, and that 1.8 quarts was the re-fill spec? Remember when I started advising everyone fill their...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I filled it up this morning with 15.069 Gallons till all the bubbles were out at $3.35 p/g. The tank holds 15.6 gallons and the info gauge said I had 100 miles to go. What's the most you've put in? Diesel.
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    2012 Cruze LTZ 59xxx miles First off, I did a drain and fill using Amsoil fuel efficient ATF. I'm so far impressed with the results. Smoother shifting and performance all over. I'm concerned though. I drained the fluid (didn't measure what came out), put in 5 quarts, released the overflow...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Good afternoon, I finally got around to dumping the factory fill from my 2015 Cruze 1LT. I wanted to do it by no later than 500 miles, but life kind of got in the way so I had to push it back a little longer than I wanted. When the sample was taken, the vehicle and oil sample both had 1,213...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, Would anyone with a 1.4 turbo be willing to help me out by checking what they get when removing the oil fill cap at idle? I'm seeing what I think is way too much positive pressure and an immediate drop in idle as soon as the cap is removed. Thanks for the help, Steve
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    Stopped to tank up tonight after work, I filled the tank and when I started the car I immediately noticed my low fuel light and DIC warning were still displayed. I drove all the way home (30 minutes drive) and the gauge had eventually (and excruciatingly slowly) returned to full, but it took the...

    I got my amsoil trans fluids in and I was about to do the swap and found this. I guess the dealership will be doing the trans fluid swap then and order a new fill bolt to replace the one that got stripped out during the last 2 axle visits. I guess I can skip to the beverage of choice now...

    I really love the car and getting good mileage, but filling the tank is driving me nuts! What I notice is that I have to go 'real slow' on the pump to get it really filled, but it takes several minutes. I do a lot of highway miles (avg 65-70) and I've been watching how many miles it takes for...
