    General Discussion
    So I'm about to pull off the dealer lot next week with my brand new 2019 Cruze RS and I want to go directly to Valvoline and get Full Synthetic put in. Anybody have any reasons why this is NOT the best idea? I feel like it's a good plan.

    General Discussion
    I know there are many very informative posts out here related to oil. Very informative, but I’ve made no conclusive headway in a situation I have.

  8. Reasons why AC capacity won't hold full??????

    General Discussion
    I've been seeing cars that won't hold above 180 psi on the high. You drain and measure the drain down. You end up with 75% of underhood label capacity. Create the vacuum. Using the underhood label for capacity. Recharge with a scale. A full charge clocks in at 240 - 275 psi on the high side...

    Hey y'all. I was leaving a green light this evening when the car began to lug like it couldn't get out of its own way. I went to 100% throttle and the car felt like it was missing or misfiring.

  13. 2011 eco not making full boost

    Gen1 Powertrain
    So I have barely had my cruze for maybe a week and I decided to put a short ram intake on it. Well now I'm not making full boost.

    Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So after doing (and continuing to do) some digging into what I can expect from a Cruze oil burner, I'm leaning towards a full delete on the motor. EGR, DEF, DPF, muffler- all of it, gone. Has anyone done this before, and if so, what can I expect as far as how the car will respond? Would prefer...

    General Discussion
    Hello, I recently have been having this issue with my 14 Vermont tuned eco reaching 22psi and then dropping to 14psi and back up to 22 as the rpms rise.
