  2. General Discussion
    2019 Gen 2 owner here. Wondering if anyone else had any noticeable differences running premium in their engine. I’m not sure if it’s just my brain tricking me but I put premium in the car for the first time sense I bought it and my car seems to be running a lot smoother (other than chevy’s...
  3. Cruze Parts
    I bought them and they are just flat out too big for my car. ZZP will not work with me at all on an exchange or credit or anything because of a simple mistake, after I have purchased THOUSANDS of dollars worth of parts from them (which I am still pretty pissed about, and I kind of hope they see...

    I have a set of 80# injectors that installed and cannot get to work. They were only in for 30 minutes and are brand new with all packaging included. The car never left the driveway with them in. I'm looking to buy some 42# or 60# injectors as I'm doing a flex fuel conversion soon (already have...

  6. Fuel Economy
    Hi, Newbie here on this forum. I am in the market for a car. Been looking at the Gen 1 Eco, but see the EPA numbers for the Gen 2 are higher. I am looking for the best fuel economy possible as well as range per tank. Wanted to reach out to the experts here to get your feedback. I prefer a...
  7. Gen2 Appearance/Body Tutorials
    Given the Diesel has 2 caps, one fuel, one DEF, and no easy options for a locking DEF cap.. and a prankster can cause an expensive repair with addition of inappropriate things to either, I found a quick, easy and cheap way to make the fuel door a locking door, with $9 lock from amazon, and less...

    Is there something available for the 2011 Cruze 1.4T? On your site THIS KIT DOES NOT WORK ON 2011 CRUZE"
  9. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm hearing a whirling/whining sound after engine shut down for about 15 seconds. From what I've read here, it's probably the Fuel Rail Pressure Control Valve. Does this sound means it's getting time to replace or is it normal. It just started doing this a few weeks ago. We have around 150K on...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    So its been about a week and my 2014 cruze with the 1.4l engine has been acting a bit odd. Has 122k miles. Under heavy acceleration or minor acceleration at highway speeds (65mph-80mph) the car skips/bucks sometimes heavily. My fuel economy is down about 3mpg, also have a severe loas of power...

    Here is a link for a website that will find the closest 93 octane fuel near you, if you are looking for it. I found it works with the GPS on my phone and locates the nearest one just by going to the site. Just thought some might find this helpful. https://find93.com/
  12. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I was surprised and happy that I got over 60k miles out of the OEM Goodyear tires, but tire time came and I wanted some black wheels, so I went up to 17" wheels and put on some 205/55R16 Continental PureContact LS tires. I'm not sure which piece of this setup is the biggest culprit, but my fuel...
  13. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    I searched the threads and could not find a sticky or other post about how to remove and replace the fuel water separator housing assembly. I didn't see any videos on YouTube for this either. It looks pretty straight forward with 3 connections: The main slip on bracket, the electrical...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi all, i have a 2012 Cruze Eco 6 MT with just over 100K. i'm getting check engine light with code P0496. i found great basic info here searching the error code & it sounds like either part in question can reasonably fail at this mileage but what's not clear is how to tell whether the purge...
  15. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Has anyone tried repairing a stripped plug using a gasket maker like permatex instead of buying the entire water separator assembly? I stripped my plug tonight and I have to drive out of state on Tuesday morning. I cannot find an online source that will overnight the part to get it here before...

    I found this as an option for L5P Duramax engines: http://blackmarketperformance.com/store/p148/l5pduramaxcatadapter.html This is more expensive than fuel filter options for prior Duramax engines. It used to be about $80 to convert to a Cat 2 micron fuel filter.
  17. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Earlier this week I did an almost total fill-up from Kroger. Today at work the car was parked all day where temperatures dropped to about 18°F. Leaving work the car was bucking and chugging out of the parking lot for a good 20 seconds until the engine warmed a little bit. Judging from my last...
  18. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm curious to hear other owners data about any drop in fuel economy with winter fuel. Since the Polar Vortex arrived (and left) where I live I've experienced four tanks of fuel that are consecutively terrible. From the Polar Vortex I'm sure the fuel suppliers have been blending #1 diesel into...

    Bought a 2018 TD and it gets great fuel mileage. I've been over 700 just in the first few months of ownership, but I'd like to push that number up as far as I can get it. Any information would be appreciated.
  20. Vendor Deals
    <p class="p1">A clean engine is a more efficient engine (and also a more powerful one), so a fuel injector cleaning is an important part of maintaining your car. While you can always visit a mechanic to get this service done, this is actually one of a few maintenance items that are pretty...
