  1. Gen1 Powertrain
    So its been about a week and my 2014 cruze with the 1.4l engine has been acting a bit odd. Has 122k miles. Under heavy acceleration or minor acceleration at highway speeds (65mph-80mph) the car skips/bucks sometimes heavily. My fuel economy is down about 3mpg, also have a severe loas of power...

    <p class="p1">A clean engine is a more efficient engine (and also a more powerful one), so a fuel injector cleaning is an important part of maintaining your car. While you can always visit a mechanic to get this service done, this is actually one of a few maintenance items that are pretty...

  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So I did the DPF Delete last week and when i was under the car. I noticed what I believe is called the Def fluid injection nozzle was completly covered in Carbon. Just curious if anybody elses car looks super nasty. Almost like it was leaking exhaust. Not too worried now though. Not my...

    I am hoping some of you Cruze mechanic extraordinaires out there can help me make a diagnosis. My Son's recently purchased 2010 Cruze has some issues. The first symptom was the injector warning flashing on the dash and blowing a lot of white smoke about 3-5 minutes after starting engine...

    I saw this stuff at Walmart for under $4/bottle. Is this stuff worth using as a part of regular car maintenance? https://lucasoil.com/products/fuel-treatments/lucas-fuel-treatment
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi all, I'm new to the forums. I recently bought a Cruze from a well known dealer in my area. I picked up a 2012 eco with 85k, i haven't had any problems except one. There is a ticking noise at idle which I had checked out and they said these types of cars are notorious for their injections...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey everyone. My first post. My wife has a 2012 Chevy cruze 1lt with around 75k miles. The only issues we've had are the recalls which we got taken care of. 2 or 3 weeks ago, she said the car started idling hard in park stopped at stop signs. I drove the car and it did idle some. It finally...

    So during my DPF delete kit installation, I noticed that the #3 injector had quite literally melted. The plastic housing has gone to goop, and there's soot spraying (or has sprayed, and the melting has plugged the hole) onto the fuel rails and engine cover. Does anyone know if GM will cover...

    Got dreaded exhaust fluid quality poor and limp mode 2nd time on trip. First time a manual regen was done at dealer and code reset. Only lasted few days before I was out of town again and message came back. Dealer was unable to clear P249D code after doing manual regen. Didn't want to motel...

  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello everyone havn't posted here in a while. But I come to you guys today to ask a question. I have a 2014 chevy cruze 1.4lt with 40k miles on it. I use AMSOIL SIGNATURE SERIES 5w-30 and change my oil when it gets to around 20% oil life. I have noticed that every time I change my oil, it...

    I was just randomly browsing around and came across this: 55585712 INJECTOR for 2014 Chevrolet Cruze First off, holy wow are these expensive! But they do seem to last, so that's good. Anyway, the point of this post is in this verbiage below. How can it also fit a gas Cruze? Is this an...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have 12k on my '13 cruze and I was wondering if I should add some fuel injector cleaner now? It's running fine but on my other vehicles I add fuel injector cleaner every 10k or so. This I my first turbo car and I assume standard STP fuel injector cleaner should be ok to use.

    2014 Cruze diesel with 100k. At 95k engine warning lite came on. Took to dealer and they said the heater element sensor in DEF container was bad. Replaced it for $400. Drove 3k more miles and lite came on again. Took it back and now they say the emission filter and system is bad and would...

  18. Fuel Economy
    I have a set and tune for 91 and E85 but I haven't installed any of them due to the fact of night time temps still arent above freezing yet. I know there aren't that many out there running them yet. Just wanted to see what people were getting for mileage on either 91 or E85 with the 42#...
