  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello everyone, I noticed that the air from the vents of the drivers side does not become hot. I visually confirmed my suspicion that the linkages to the flaps in the AC & heater assembly are broken. This means that I have to replace part 1(see picture below): I have a couple of questions...

    I have a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze LT 4 Cylinders B 1.4L FI Turbo DOHC. I've noticed for some time an odd cooking hamburger smell coming from the engine. Usually after driving on the highway, when I get off on the exit ramp when I make the stop at the end and pull onto the street I'll smell that...
    Finally an easy way to install a coolant heater in your 2014-2015 Gen 1 Cruze diesel. This hose replaces your factory lower radiator hose and has an inline 600w heater preinstalled. The factory heater option was just an oil pan heater, which makes the oil warm but does not warm up your...

    I have a 2014 Cruze LTZ and about 4 days ago my heater went out. The first day I noticed it not working properly it was taking an unusually long amount of time for my car to get warm enough to drive as it was -20some degrees outside. I noticed that it warmed up a little faster when I started...

    2012 Chevy Cruze LT 145,000 miles. Located near Chicago, IL I have an awful oil smell in the cabin when it is 'cold' outside (32 degrees) and I have my heat on. I went to a shop and stated that the car smells like oil when the heat is on and when it is cold. They replaced the valve cover...

    Replaced the coolant reservoir only to find it leaking from another spot. Got lucky and spotted the leak. Seems to be where the plastic housing meets the metal (aluminum?) Hose coming out of the heater core. Anyone have suggestions on how to fix? Good YouTube video to watch?

    I had a leak at the molded fitting of the heater inlet hose. I ordered a replacement hose part # 42348374. The new hose came in and it appears different in that the new hose has a white molded fitting versus the black original, and the original hose had what appears to be a molded-in seal and I...

    I wanted to post a question to the group to see if anyone has experienced leaks around the top of the DEF heater. My 2014 Cruze triggered the 35% DEF warning, so I decided to add some fluid. While filling, I noticed some crystals down in the well of the trunk. Apparently it had been leaking...

    I am getting ready to order a Cruze sedan with the 1.6 and manual and I'm trying to decide what add-ons I want. I can't decide if the oil pan heater would really be useful where I live ... I'm in Delaware and we usually have only a few days in below 20F, single digits pretty rare and 0F very...

    Winter is here! I've found on a couple of occasions where I'm running errands or the car sits idle for a while that it's cold inside. We leave our vehicles running a lot around here. The heater doesn't blow hot hot air until you get out on the highway and over 40 mph. (This is a terrible...

    Hello all, new here from Vermont. Wife bought a 2013 Cruze and when we run the heater there is a stench of oil in the heat. Watched a couple videos on stink, mostly about antifreeze, but none on oil stink, what can it be? Where do I look ???

    Over the past week here in MI we've had the coldest temps so far when starting my car. I had -17F last week and the car barely started. I had a Stanley jump battery go dead while trying to get it to start and finally had to have the wife jump the car with her 3/4 ton truck. (car started just...

    As described in a different the I'm having trouble with fuel gelling. I found this in the owner's manual for my '17 CTD and wonder if anyone can expound? What parts are heated? How strongly are they heated? When are they heated? Etc.
  20. Gen1 Service Issues
    So I just got a 2013 LT/RS from a dealership. The car has 77k miles and I've had the car for 18 days and so far it's been running fine. However recently since the temperatures in North Dakota have been dropping I've noticed the heater is 50/50 on whether or not it blows hot air or cold/luke warm...
