  1. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So our 2014 diesel has been going into drive very hard lately. It would do it every once in a while over the past few years, but now it seems to slam every time you put it into drive. It also slams pretty hard when you let off the brake and the car goes back into drive from neutral. It doesn’t...

    I was driving home from work tonight, put gas in my 2017 Cruze Hatchback and about 5 miles later the check engine light came on and it was shifting rather hard on the highway between 60-70 mph. My assumption is the cold/low levels possibly of transmission fluid are to blame, but I'm here looking...

    New battery but no block heater. Temps today was -2 with a wind chill of -30. The car started then died. It has a full tank with power saver anti gel and freeze added. Seemed to really strain the battery but did start. My point the little Cruze doesn’t care for -20 temps sitting all day in it...

    Well looks like I’m replacing the 1.4 LT this weekend. Winters been hard on the ole cruize at 125k miles. I’m hoping it’s not a normal life expectancy for these motors. ANY ADVICE? As I dive into this engine swap tomorrow?

    My 14 Cruze LT has been falling apart for the last 3 months. It started with the coolant casing overheatingand melting out the bottom, dropping out all of my coolant. My car smoked up, and shut down. After I replaced the casing the engine overheatingand dropped out the coolant again 2 more...

    I tapped into the overhead map lights. They are hot when the car is on and go cold 10 minutes after you leave the car. Once you pull the harness controlling then lights, add the ground to the black wire in the left and hot wire to the wire on the right. Tape them together, stuff the extra wire...

    my 2016 Gen 1 LT Cruze - has a hard shift (almost like a slip) every time it hits second and third for the first time. I have let the car warmup too - this is during the summer too. I have tried different driving styles too - if I am smooth and gental it still does it. If I hammer it and go...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi all, I've spent a decent amount of time trying to track down the part number for this and it's after hours so I'm out of options till Monday. Any idea what this line that's highlighted is called? It's leaking at the metal flange, toward the block. Thank you in advance.
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've got a 2012 Cruze LT/RS with the 6 speed manual, for some reason when it's cold you can barely get it into 1st or 2nd and third will grind unless you're careful, all other gears shift like butter. If it's a hot day or when the car warms up I don't have this problem. I just bled the clutch...

    Hi, I own a 2012 Chevy Cruze eco 6spd manual w/ 84k miles on it. I recently purchased this Cruze about a month ago now and so far I've had two issues with it that seemingly didn't show their face when I was testing out the vehicle prior to buying.. 1. So my first issue is what the topic is, I...
  11. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hi guys, I have a 2nd gen LT with the automatic, it has a little over 8000 miles on it so far. for the first couple thousand miles it was alright. Now the transmission has recently started shifting harshly, the harsh shifts are much worse when you first start driving the car after its been...
  12. Gen1 Service Issues
    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. When I got up to about 50 mph, the CEL came on, and the "Service Traction Control" message appeared...

    Been thinking maybe it's time for a new car. The 2012 has been very good to me, but hey...93,000 miles and 5.5 years later. Being a little older here, I thought about getting a Cadillac 2014 CTS Coupe in red (of course). The CTS looks real cool as a coupe and I've seen them for low 20's. Of...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I recently took a long road trip. The last stretch was from Reno to San Francisco over the Sierra mountains - about 200 miles. There are a lot of 5-6% downgrades. I downshifted a lot to keep from overheating the brakes. When I got home the oil level was down a little. It makes me wonder if the...
