    Is this considered the lower radiator hose? I have a hole in it and need to replace

    Service tec notified me I had a transmission leak. Car just hit the 105k mark and has had water pump replaced at 70k with no other costly problems. Wondering if it could be coolant or trans as I has fluid on top of motor. Anyone else experienced this??

    2012 Cruze LT. I’ve been through hell with this car, replaced the engine less than a year ago, have replaced several leaking coolant hoses, My car overheated on me, I made it home and realized one of the hoses was disconnected and a little shot. I replaced that and it’s no longer leaking...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    This is a 2014 1.8L with about 94000 miles on it. Over the last 2 oil changes (which I do every 5k), I noticed that the oil level on the dipstick was a little more than 1 quart low. So it's slowly losing oil. But I'm not seeing any puddles on my garage floor and I can't see any obvious places...

    I bought this car 3 months ago with extended warranty. I first had oil turbo feed line leak which was NOT covered. But I continued smelling oil. I took a look under my car and see it dripping it looks like from oil cooler. I’m hoping it’s a gasket. It wasn’t originally leaking in puddle when the...

I have a 2013 LS Automatic Transmission with 75K miles in the U.S (Got it at 44K, have put mostly highway miles on since...

    If you have a Gen 2 sedan and have a water leak in the trunk after rain, it's likely one of two things: 1. The third brake light - there's a recall for 2016/17's to replace the gasket. Sometimes after the gasket is replaced, the third brake light assembly itself will crack. This water usually...

  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, so I believe I had the recall waterpump replaced early in my 2013 LS’s life. Then in Nov of 2018 my second water pump busted wide open. I got it replaced with a new oem. 13 months later in Dec 2019 this one started leaking too. It’s leaking only a few drops at a time, not enough to drip to...

    I recently purchased a pre-owned 2018 Chevy Cruze Premiere RS sedan. When looking at the car I found there was some water in the spare tire well. I didn’t think much about it and thought maybe they shampooed the carpet and got it really wet. The dealer I bought it from said they would look for...

    Hey everyone, my Cruze has recently been losing a lot of coolant. The reservoir will be empty after about 2 weeks if I don't fill it up. After looking at the car it seems to be one of the hoses connecting to the water outlet, since that's where I'm finding all the excess coolant dripping from...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    So yes, Ive looked at many of the thousands of posts about coolant loss, the most common failure points in the system, parts to replace, and each post usually has something in common... some sort of leaky evidence giving its owner confidence in where the leak is. However this is not the case...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    I looked under my Cruze and noticed that the hose covered in plastic tubing that runs from front to rear has a wet spot in one part of it. I’m guessing it’s the brake line? I’ve notices my brakes have been feeling weird for a while now..is this why?? Brake fluid doesn’t seem to be loosing any...

    I got a 2013 Cruze LT 1.4 Turbo and it's leaking coolant. I can see it wet right under the top coolant reservoir and leaking down below it but when I pulled it out to inspect under it, I didn't see any obvious leaks from it, not from the plastic container itself nor any of the hoses connected to...
  17. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hey guys, I found mold in the trunk liner of my Cruze in the last week. It's a gen2 2017 premier RS. Is this definitely a water leak? I think there was a TSB for water leaking through the break light housing for the 2016s. Others in the following thread mentioned the RS spoiler is drilled...

    I keep having to add oil to my 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ due to a persistent oil leak that keeps trying to run the oil tank dry. My garage mechanics noticed "a trickle" of oil coming out of my oil pan when they last checked my car a couple weeks ago. Do I have a cracked oil pan, or a failing head gasket?
  19. Gen1 Powertrain
    I seem to have a coolant leak down on the lower radiator hose(or so im assuming) The problem is it downs behind the passenger fog light and above the engine pan/skid plate and I cant see any way to easily access this without tearing apart the whole front corner of the car... Am I missing something?

    Items needed Psi gauge at least 20 psi 1/4” hose Air hose connector to air supply To test for boost leaks you will need a psi gauge that will test at least 20 psi and that you can read accurately. I used a “T” junction and 1/4” hose, and one of the 1/4 inch hose I slipped over the connective...
