    This started when braking yesterday I'd hear this light grind. Then got worse by the day. And now happens everytime the vehicle is HOT. everything cooled down it seems to go away. I'm extremely worried it's the power steering motor and I would need the whole thing replaced. I don't know what to...

    It has been doing this when it is completely cold, sounds like something is going to come apart!!! Oil level is fine. Should I be worried about this? Start at 17 seconds

    Just like the title says I have 2012 ECO with 160,000 miles. On my way into work today I noticed a faint grinding on deceleration, clutch out, in gear. Everything else seems normal, shifts smooth, (up and down) no noises while driving, quiet under load, etc. This isn't going to go away and i'm...

    Two times in the past week the dreaded 2nd gear grind is plaguing me. It's only during the times when I need my transmission the most too. Pulling out and trying to get into small fast moving gaps in between cars. When I run 1st gear to 5,500 RPM and try to get into second gear quickly, it...

    I have 70k miles and just recently began hearing a grinding sound while coasting. It seems to be happening the worst in 3rd gear as it drops from 2500 to 1700 rpm. I jacked it up and tried shaking the wheels to see if it was a wheel bearing but they seemed solid. I've been told it could be...

  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys. I have a 2012 cruze eco 6mt that is at ~27000 miles. Around 15k miles I started to notice a grind from 2nd to 3rd. Over the last year it got progressively worse. Now 1st to 2nd has a slightly notchy grind, and 2nd to 3rd is a much more noticeable notchy grinding. If I double clutch 2nd...

  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Started the car up and sounded like the **** starter skipped a tooth or 2. Anyone else have this issue? I'm only at 38k miles. It seems to be random and occurs more when I am doing something that requires starting the car a lot like running errands to different places.

    Hi, I bought a 2013 Cruze LS Manual Transmission in June of 2013. Immediately I noticed that this car would make grinding noises going into gears sometimes and I thought that maybe it was my fault. But I've been a valet and an auction coordinator and have driven every stick there is and I've...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello, I have a brand new 2014 cruze 1lt automatic. Today I started it up and there was a very loud grinding for just 1 or 2 seconds when it started and I didn't hear it again. Honestly it sounded like if I had tried to turn it on a second time after it was on or oil was low. The car has 500...
  12. Gen1 Service Issues
    I recently bought a 2014 cruze rs. I noticed when im braking there is a noticeable sound coming from the rear. Its almost like a excessive wear sound as if the brakes were low. I bought the car with 9800 miles and it now has 11500 miles. I was wondering if anyone else has had issue with the...
  13. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a feeling I'm about to call myself out but F it; I can't figure it out so here goes. Most of the time I can take off quickly in 1st gear (manual w/ trifecta tune) and accelerate to 60+ after switching to second gear. However, lately, I've had issues going into 2nd and/or 3rd gear when...
  14. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello, I have had a great experience with my Cruze at right about 25,000 km where they dropped in a brand new transmission because a bearing had gone bad. 2012 Cruze Eco 1.4T 6M I am now at 40,000km and just today after a 200km drive, a new problem has arisen : when braking in gear, I get a...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    I bought my Cruze second hand, pre owned certified... I've had it three months now and the dealership has reenacted the problem once but sent me on my way because "it's fine". When I turn my wheel either way, driving, in park, or in reverse, I have a constant grinding noise that sounds like it's...

    I can hear this oscillating grinding noise from my engine when at a stop. Not noticeable while driving, not sure if this is because ambient road noise drowns it out though. However, with the hood up it almost sounds like it is coming from right around the turbo. Any ideas what this may be?
  17. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2013 LT with A/T. 2k miles on it. Here is my problem I first noticed about 4-500 miles ago: after driving for about 5 minutes (35 mpg, 5-6 stop signs/lights) and parking the car for 5 to 10 minutes, when I start the engine and drive, the transmission will shift hard into 3rd gear...

    Does your Cruze have a grinding/pulsating noise that's felt through the brake pedal that lasts for a split second every time you start the car and get going 10-15 mph? :angry: It's normal. It's the ABS system doing a self-check every time the car is started. Don't worry, don't fret, it's...

    So, I’m down shifting from 6th to 5th , didn’t press the clutch far enough and grind the gears for a second or two.…followed by, “Oh sh#%.” I only have 350 miles on the car and hate to think I am already trashing it. How many of you with manual transmissions have done this? Any cause for...
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey all, When I start the car and start driving, right when the car hits about 2500-3000 rpms in 2nd gear there is a grinding sound that I can feel through the gas pedal. When I subsequently stop (such as when I'm at a stop sign) and start again, the noise is no longer there. It's only the...
