  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have a 2012 lt standard transmission with 87,000 miles. I have changed the brake pads and rotors and drum on all 4 wheels. I had a problem with a low squeaking noise when braking that now has turned into a knocking noise on the passenger rear wheel. Not sure where to start. You only hear it at...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I recently had my car in the shop to have the PCV valve with the valve cover replaced and some brake work. After picking up the car and it warming up I noticed a very noticeable knocking noise at idle and during acceleration at all speeds. Not sure what it could be but I have a video if anyone...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So today my 1.4 turbo cruze started to make a slight metallic knocking sound under load it is most noticeable at lower rpms. It does not make the sound when its idling. When the clutch is pressed in it still makes the sound as well. Just hoping it's not a rod knock but it does have 189000 miles...

  5. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    My wife took over primary use of the Cruze, so this info is what she describes. I cannot reproduce it, and can't find any other stories of it. Wife describes occasionally (once per 5-10 trips, random), the car will make a knocking/thumping sound when coming to a stop, the majority of time when...

    Guys, 14 Cruze TD 80k miles I'm getting a knocking sound while I'm turning sharply, but it is only when there is a lot of downward force. So, if I go into a parking lot I can do circles all day and not hear it. But when I jump onto the expressway, going up a sharp semicircle ramp putting a lot...

    my 2014 cruze Lt started making a weird knocking noise, from the rear passenger side when I am going at a slower speed over any bumps on the road it doesn't do it when I am going faster than 60km or on the highway. There's nothing in my trunk that can cause it and the seat belt on the back seat...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    I had a new member, @redakaoula, PM me about an engine noise. He is from Canada and I am guessing English is not his first language. I told him I would post this and ask for your help as I am not able to answer his question. I will have him introduce himself when he is back online. He has a...

    My 2011 Chevy Cruze ltz 1.4T has only 45k miles on it, but I do electrical work which requires tools and material adding some serious weight to the vehicle. And also usually requires driving on in developed dirt roads with some crazy bumps and holes, I notice most of them and go slow but I'm...
  10. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey guys, Just picked up a 2016 Cruze Limited and i'm loving it but right from the get go I've noticed that when the car is in a stopped position at a light or whatnot, or when in park, that it makes almost like a knocking sound coming from the engine. The best way to describe it is to picture...

    I've had this issue for a very long time. I own a 2011 Chevy Cruze Lt In the mornings or when the vehicle has sat for a period of time the engine knocks for a short period of time. I brought it to the dealer and they told me it's normal. Well what's gotten my attention was this morning it...
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    My Cruze knocks some of the time. When it does it won't let me go higher than about 2500 rpm. This makes it extremely hard to accelerate. It also makes my transmission shift hard and it jerks the car. I've been working with my local Chevy dealer and they've never been able to recreate the noise...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    There's a slight knock on start up or even while driving. I have a 14 LT with 34.2K auto and I'm not sure if it's the turbo with possible shaft play or what. I have a 12 model LT and I hear nothing. I'm a little concerned about the noise and I need to get it in before my bumper2bumper...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys. First post here I just bought my wife a new Nissan murano, and took her 2012 cruze ltz as a work car Having an issue ONLY when the ac is on. At idle, the engine runs extremely rough and has what sounds like knocking. If I turn the a/c off, it stops and runs smooth as butter. The...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, I've read a couple posts from this and other forums addressing an engine knocking sound that happens in idle or in gear (low RPMS for sure, I don't hear it as much at higher RPMS -- possibly because of other engine noise). This sound SEEMS to only be occurring when the a/c is off, but...

    Hello all. This is my second post. First was in the veterans introduction thread. I own a 79 coupe deville, a 2009 Cadillac STS-V, and most recently, a '12 Cruze eco manual for my work commute now that I'm out of the Army and am back in NYC. I've lurked a bit on these forums and I finally...
  18. Gen1 1.8L
    Hi all, I currently have about 75,000 miles on my Cruze. Over the past few weeks I have been unable to start my car after fueling. If I floor it and crank for a little while it will eventually start. This sound like emissions to me. The question I have is would it be the purge valve or the...
