  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    Alright y'all, I know I know. Why would I do such a thing? I'll explain below. Ultimately I hope to get some kind of simple help DIY help here. If not, I'm ready to dish out some money to fix this issue. My 2016 Cruze overheated on my way to see family. My coolant was boiling, so I proceeded to...

    Spring is coming, and with it, your general maintenance on everything you put away for winter. I'll be doing my annual oil change as well and firing up all of the lawn equipment not long after. Some of you may not know, but AMSOIL has a pretty heavy focus in the small engine world as well. For...

    1.4 auto transmission intermittent whine I have a ‘12 Cruze 1.4L turbo automatic with 146k Just yesterday, I noticed a whine coming from the transmission when I go from a start until it shifts, I think, from 2nd to 3rd gear but goes away after that. It doesn’t do it every time or from...
  4. Gen1 Powertrain
    So my cruze is shifting weird into 3rd gear and makes a weird whining noise in that gear only. The rpms shoot up and drop down real quick going into 3rd. It only does this after car is hot after I've been driving for a while. It shifts perfectly fine when it's cold. The issue happens whether...
  5. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey, I have a 2018 Premier RS and noticed lately while doing 120km/h it’s sitting at about 3200RPM and won’t upshift to 6th. If I accelerate to 130km/h it will shift up to 6th but it’s a rough shift and setting cruise at 130km/h it doesn’t know what to do and constantly shifts up/down/up/down...

    Hello Friends... MY daughter has a 2011 cruze 6 speed manual. The clutch pedal goes down with almost no effort.....and then wont go into gear. The fluid level is fine, no signs of leakage anywhere of fluid. My daughter said a while ago (yes daughter is a little light on the details) that...

    I just started seeing what appears to be a gear looking icon on my radio display.....however I cannot find in the manual or anywhere on line what this is? Any help?
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    We have a 2011 - one day last month wife went to go to work. Backed out of the garage, then shifted to drive, and nothing happened. No slip, just nothing. Trying to manually put transmission into 2nd or 3rd gear, nothing. Reverse worked GREAT so she figured out how to use reverse and the...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    2011 Cruze 1.8 auto. Posting for a friend who has a daughter with the following issue: Car will downshift into what I can assume to be first gear at highway speeds (55 & 65 mph). The front tires obvisouly drag when this happens and the RPM goes to 7500 or so when they catch up. They immediately...
  10. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hello all, I have a 2018 Chevy Cruze LS automatic trans. Hopefully someone can shed some light on what the point of the L mode is on the shifter. The OM says it is Low, but the way they diatribe it isn't low as in high/low gear. It seems more like a manual mode. When I put it in L and select the...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi Seasoned Cruze drivers, I am driving a 2011 Cruze 6AT. While driving on the highway or city roads, my speedometer will randomly drop to zero, and the RPM went up above 3K. There is no power to the wheels no matter how I step on the accelerator. Most of the time I managed to roll the car to...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've got a 2012 Eco that I did a clutch and fluid change(2.5qts) a few thousand miles ago while I was doing an engine swap from a bad head gasket. Right now everything seems to work fine except I can't shift into 4th gear. I checked the shifter cables under the hood and they seem to be freely...
  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi all, i have a gear oil leak and therefore the gear is not working due to lack of oil (only reverse is working and D will go like 1 mile an hour). My question is, if i fix the leak myself and put oil (i know the procedure) will the gear come back to work or the car computer have "locked" it in...

  15. Gen1 1.8L
    So driving around the other day I went to grab 5th gear and it was like I was hitting the far right side of the throw for my shifter. So no 5th and 6th gear. Got home and popped off the grey shift linkage bushing in the engine compartment. With the linkage disconnected the shifter had full...
  16. Gen1 1.8L
    Hi, I'm in the process of replacing the clutch assembly and flywheel (which is destroyed) on my 2012 LS. And of course, am thinking about which lube I want to fill the gearbox with. I have used redline in the past in other cars I've had and was very happy with it. From the advise on here...

  18. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I have a '17 Cruze Diesel with the 6spd manual transmission, just shy of 10k miles. It has recently developed a very heavy shuddering/shaking/bucking behavior that comes and goes, usually under the following conditions: -1700-2000rpm -Fairly light throttle -Speeds above 40mph (Gears 4-6)...
  19. Gen1 Powertrain
    I think the synchros are bad on my 2011 Cruze Eco with 6spd auto gearbox. I've heard people mention it happens more in cold than hot, but I noticed, if i accelerate hard in 3rd gear, the synchros get stuck, and suddenly jolt into 4th gear; which is why 3rd gear, even when hot, is not a gear I...
