    Okay, so I had been using premium gas all summer in my 2017 and getting great fuel mileage from it, but now it’s pretty cold here in Wisconsin. I mean, not consistently, but there’s days where it’s in the 30’s now and it’s only going to get worse. so my question is, what gas is best to run in...

    Anybody know if the Trifecta ez flash cable can be used with other software (or the trifecta software) to pull error codes from other vehicles? Thanks.

    Sorry about all the questions I’m about to ask guys! I’m trying to learn. I tried google but it was oddly lacking. So my tires have a moderate amount of dry rot on them. From what I understand, this means they’re toast. So this leaves me with a bunch of questions as I move to replace them (and...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    What's up guys I'm pretty new to DIY automotive stuff and teaching myself as I go. I just replaced my old spark plugs today with ACDelco iridium plugs due to an intermittent rough idle. These are my old spark plugs - are these what burnt out/busted spark plugs look like just for my education...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    Good morning everyone. This morning I went out to start my car for work only to find the "AC Off due to high engine temperature" warning i've seen floating around on the forums about the car before. I've deduced its either the thermostat or temp sensors gone out. My question doesnt exactly...

    So I have this ‘12 /1.4t 6sp manual RS. Car has been great till just recently. I looked up a bunch of info on this and basically around 60k miles I had a intake manifold replaced under warrantee. Dealer said the manifold was leaking and that’s what caused an oil leak......at first I was...

  9. Cruze Owner Projects
    Hey! COSMETICS: To start with, does anyone know any generally inexpensive cosmetic upgrades for the Cruze that you think makes the car "pop?" I put two rally stripes above my tire well and I love that, also put carbon fiber bowtie stickers on my previously gold bowtie. I have tinted tail...
  10. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Good afternoon everyone! I just saw J's post reviewing the tires he purchased, and it reminded me I haven't yet mentioned how my new tires are treating me. A little review on the old Firestone FR710 tires: I've got the 215/60/16 5-spoke alloy wheels on the 1LT. These tires were on par with the...

    Greetings. I think we are all pretty good here at rotating tires, changing the oil, changing the manual transmission fluid, and checking the oil and tire pressure. But what are some of the other maintenance practices you do? I for one have not yet lubricated the doors on my 2014 Cruze. I...
  12. General Discussion
    I'm coming up on 100,000 km (96 currently) and am wondering what should be replaced/checked on/maintained in the near future. I have a 2012 Eco MT. She's been mine since August 2015 (42,000km then) and other than oil changes and front breaks at 90,000km I haven't done any mechanical work. Any...

    I’m trying to understand my grandma’s 2013 4-door Cruze but I know nothing about them. I am also just a noob/amateur as a mechanic. Could you please talk me through some questions about the coolant system and a few other parts?

 If it has “eco” printed on top of the engine, does that...

  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello, I have a 2013 Cruze LS and was just curious on some general tips to make sure my vehicle has a reasonable longevity. When/how often should I get my oil changed? Is there a way to check the current Oil Life Percentage? General maintenance to get done and how often to get them done...

    So my understanding of a tune is changing the way the computer tells the car to perform. As basic as that it, that's pretty much ALL that I understand. I'm new to forums in general so i may have not found a thread that already explains all of this but i would really like some info. First off, I...
