fluid

  1. General Discussion
    No leaks that I can find, but I'm having to add brake fluid every so often. It will pop up that the fluid is low and a service stabili-trac message will appear. This is baffling me. No visible leaks and fluid disappearing...any ideas?

    So went to go change my trans fluid and my transmission drain plug is rounded off. I can't seem to find a replacement anywhere. Any time I do a search it just brings up engine oil drain plugs. Any idea where I can find one? Thanks!
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I haven't been able to find any topics discussing this. I was wanting to check the fluid level in my manual transmission because it has been hard to shift in gears 1-3 at lower speeds. I'm running amsoil 75-90 transaxel and Mt fluid that is about 1.5 yrs old. I just can't remember if...

    I have a 2012 LTZ 1.4L Turbo. I noticed a red liquid this AM on my garage floor. Told hubby about it when I got home from work and he backed the Cruze up and found fresh red liquid on the floor. I have no engine lights, warnings, etc. It's at 91,800ish miles. We bought it used about a month ago...

    Coming up soon on 50K, and would like to change my trans fluid around then. Has anyone done this themselves, or had it done at the dealer? If so, what fluid did you use or how much did you pay for at the dealer?

    Hello all, I am currently looking to change the transmission fluid on my 2015 Cruze LTZ and was wondering which fluid should I use? I've seen Amsoil being the fluid that most on here prefer but I shall skip it due to the price. Are both below just as good as the other? I list these because both...

    So we have a 2014 Cruze diesel with 245,000 miles on it. A few months back the dealer replaced the Nox sensor under a recall. Since then the def quality poor light has been on 4 or 5 times and has went out shortly after. This time it’s limited me down to 65 and now 55 I’ve called the dealer and...

    Alright, so my 2011 6spd MT has 165,000 miles on it. Shifted fine with no issues at all. I figured I would do some preventative maintenance and change the fluid out. After a few forum searches it seemed like Amsoil Synchromesh was the ticket. So I drained the old fluid and put Amsoil in. Now the...

I bought the car used when it had 76,488 miles (123,095 Km) and have no idea if the OE automatic transmission fluid is in there.

  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    I talked to my local dealer and they said they'll change the tranny fluid on my Gen 1 Diesel. I asked him what they'll put in and he said what ever the manual calls for. I asked if I brought my own would they put it in and he said yes, but he can't guarantee the validity of my powertrain...
