    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze 1.4t that I just replaced the motor with a used motor because the head gasket went on the original one.

  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    Ok, need some help on this one. Currently rocking a 2011 Chevy Cruze 6spd, new engine and replaced turbo, got it off a guy at work. Issue is, it likes to overheat when idling when the air is on. Not just A/C, but any air. As soon as I take off, everything goes down and it's fine??? It'll...

On the move ac works great super cold but now that temps here in Phoenix are staying steady over 100...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    Need help. 2012 Chevy Cruze LS 1.8 is hesitating when at a stop. I did a tune up on it a few days ago but nothing really changed. Does this sound like a misfire? It's worse when the A/C is on.

  14. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    My Cruze has been awesome in its first 10k miles but lately has developed some weird behavior. In the last 700 or so miles its done five regens, or what I assume are regens. In each case when I come to a stop at a light or elsewhere the idle surges very noticeably. This always coincides with the...

    Good Evening, For the past couple of days I noticed while the car is in motion I get heat but if I ever stop (let's say while in traffic) I'll notice it'll get cold which is odd as that shouldn't happen. Is there something I can check to isolate what the issue might be? Might be an issue...

    I have a 2014 LTZ Cruze, 1.4L with 128,000 miles. I've noticed that it idles a little rough and when I'm at a stop, it the engine will surge up and down a little. It runs good overall but it definitely is not as smooth as before. I did a fuel injection cleaning (or whatever it's called) about...

    Hi all. My daughers Cruze is having a little problem. I noticed the idle is rough about every 4 seconds. Runs fine for about 3 seconds, then a hear a noise like air escaping and at the same time the engine is about to die or run rough. The noise is coming from the valve cover on the top left...
