    Hello all, I have a 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited LTZ with over 100,000 miles on it (1.4L). And since I bought the car, the coolant had been leaking at a very fast rate. I've fixed the water outlet twice already and I can not seem to pinpoint where the leak is coming from. it is not coming from the...
  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    2012 LS 1.8L Exactly 4 weeks ago today I got the “AC OFF Due to High Engine temp.” Temp gauge went a little over halfway mark while I was at a drive thru. Managed to get back home fine without any problems. Coolant levels were normal nothing seemed wrong. The following day I drove around fine...

    Has anyone found an upgrade for the thermostat on the 1.4 ecotec 2011-2016 first gen cruzes? I'd like to replace the plastic one for a metal one. I found the upgraded metal coolant outlet for the driver side outlet so I'd like to replace both at the same time.

    I have a coolant leak at this inlet hose connector. I have replaced the whole hose with a new connector and it's still leaking. Any thoughts? I have a 2012 cruze
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I don't know a lot about cars, so I'm trying to figure it out as I go. There was smoke coming from the engine compartment after driving 15 or so miles down the interstate. I popped the hood and whatever this is was leaking a lot of clear brownish fluid. I didn't drive the car just in case. I...
  6. Gen 1 Tuning/Engine Modifications
    I replaced my cracked OEM turbo with the ZZP V3 turbo, and installed 42# injectors also. After waiting for Trifecta to get back to me with a tune, I took it for a drive and data log. My boost gauge is only showing between 15-17psi of boost at WOT, and trifecta’s tune is commanding 27psi. I’ve...

    I am dealing with a minor oil leak that is most likely just the oil pan. Many others have had oil leaks in other places, and while I have my uncut engine splash shield off the car, I was thinking about applying a single layer of aluminum foil tape such as Nashua Tape 1.89 in. x 50 yd. 322...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello everyone! I have a 2013 Cruze with 128k miles on it and just noticed today there was a wet spot on my garage floor when I came home from work. Where I live we are in fall weather, 30-40 °F (-1-10 °C), so its not from condensation or my A/C compressor. I opened the hood and saw the coolant...
  9. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2011 1.4 turbo and can't figure out an AC Problem. It seems to have a large leak. I noticed that the ac stopped working one day and started troubleshooting. The blower motor and resistor were fine as the air blows through and I can change the settings from low to high fine. I check to...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was out when I heard a little squeaking from the engine. I looked it up and it said if you have squeaking take out the dipstick and it should go away, if so then it must be a valve cover issue. As soon as I took the dipstick out the squeaking stopped. I drove around for a few minutes then got...

  14. Fuel Economy
    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...
  15. 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...
  18. Gen2 Appearance/Body Tutorials
    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...
