    Well I just got my turbo back on and all back together to find out the coolant return line is leaking. I didn't replace this even though I had a new line I could get it unattached from the snap on cooling line fitting thing. Do these come apart? What's the best way? Can I just replace these...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Last week I ran into something and did some damage to my front bumper cover. Now it seems on occasion, I have what may be antifreeze leaking. Every once and a while I will see a little red stream of fluid. Not sure this is antifreeze or other(from AC?)? I really need to get under the front...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    So for the last couple months I’ve been smelling something burning when I start my car. Took it to the dealer on Friday and they said that my oil cooler was leaking oil onto my converter and it’s a 1000$ fix. Got a second opinion from Midas and they said my car oil cooler isn’t leaking. They...

    Hi for the past few months ive been having an issue with my cruze with 62k miles, where oil sprays all over or simply leaks out of the oil cap.

    I have a 2012 LS 1.8L, I just recently noticed a coolant leak. After checking I found that the lower radiator hose has a small leak. I also found that on the top of the thermostat/water outlet housing there is a connection with an elbow connector that connects a hose that goes up and over the...

    Does anyone know if the corrugated hose that snaps onto the top of the intake manifold is supposed to be air tight? I recently replaced my intake manifold but the hose connector is wanting to slip a little up and down and it wants to suck air in. Can't figure out what I am missing. Thanks Cruze...

    So my PVC went up end of fall. Swapped in a new valve cover and it's leaking at all the bolts. Pulled it off noticed no o-rings. So I popped on a few at the heads. Still leaking, most seemed to come off anyways when I tightened the bolts down. Any suggestions on how to get a good seal? Or did I...

  12. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey everyone, I’ve recently changed my thermostat and housing on my 1.8l Cruze but it is currently leaking from the top hose that runs from the housing to the other side of the car behind the engine, I believe it is some kind of vacuum hose? I know it is broken at the piece that plugs into...

    Does anyone know where or what fix is causing this leak on the passenger floor? I have a 13 Cruze and I sealed the aftermarket sunroof so it isn’t leaking but after a rain event it is wet any ideas? Someone posted about a air vent cover but their link doesn’t show anything

    I'm looking to buy a 2013 Chevy cruz and I noticed some sludge build up. I'm trying to figure out if it's from oil or what and what fix it would be. Picture is included of the part where the build up is. The picture isn't of the car I'm looking to purchase, just one offline.
