    My 2011 Chevrolet Curze LTZ, which almost has 158,00 miles on it, suffered two oil leaks after the engine valve cover was replaced earlier this month. The first leak came from a bolt located on top of my valve cover, on the front, and located the closest to the passenger side of the engine. My...

    Hello all! I need help. My 2012 Cruze 1.4 turbo is my daily driver. About 90 miles a day. Car has 132k miles. Yes I know the issues I’m having seem to be common in my research. But I need assurance. Story: One month ago the car started running rough. The valve cover had failed. Noise and...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I am usually pretty good at finding decent threads to assist myself and others, but my brain refuses to help myself here. I was getting ready to install the splash shield and discovered more leaks than I thought I had. I assume the CPASV and valve cover, but what else. The last pic is near...

    Can you guys help pinpoint what these oil leaks are coming from and what I need to do to remedy them. My gf has been noticing oil burning smells while driving and while changing the trans fluid I noticed some oil leaks and have seemed to figure out where it’s coming from but not sure what to do...

    I took my car in for an oil change a few months back when I was at 102K miles. My extended warranty that I purchased from the dealership had just ran out based on mileage, 100k. I was told everything was fine and paid and went about my way. A few weeks later, I was looking at the paperwork on my...

    I did a quick tire rotation and oil change the other day. I noticed possible oil leaks on the front side of the engine oil pan and on from the driver sided axle shaft seal. Car has about 42,000 miles on it. I was in a bit of a hurry so I took no pictures but this might prompt me to take it to...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello all. First post here...I found this forum while investigating a leaky valve cover gasket on my 2011 Cruze Eco before I was about to go on a long trip. I decided not to drive it after reading about all of the related PCV system issues, and now that it has warmed up I finally tore into it...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, Recently I have noticed several leaks that are developing on my 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco (1.4). I noticed a few drops of oil here and there from parking on the driveway. Looking underneath the car I noticed that there is a coating of oil on the bottom of the engine on the left and right...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    I had my 2012 Cruze LT (1.4 L) in for an oil change and inspection, an the customer service guy commented "I don't want to scare you, but you have signs of a transmission cooler leak that could cause a problem if it isn't corrected at some point". (The problem being that the fluid would leak...
  11. Gen2 Service Issues
    Keep an eye on the underside of your car as we are starting to see an upward trend of 2016.5-2017 Cruze's coming in for leaking oil pans. The oil leak is moderate to severe. At this time, there is no "average" mileage of when it happens, but I will keep you updated as time goes on. Keep in...

    Good morning all. My GF has a 2014 Cruze that has been giving her fits. Its the base model standard with no AC, and currently has approx 78,000 KM on it. So far it has had 2 coolant leaks and 4 oil leaks. They have replaced the head on it once, and resealed the heads and valve covers...

    Good morning Cruze forums, I drive a duramax so forgive my ignorance if I describe things a little funky, cars aren't my strong suit. This is my first post and this seems like the best area to post this. I live up in NH with my girlfriend and we got hit with storm stella the other day, nearly 2...
  14. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hey guys, I apologize for not posting any new modifications or anything of that sort as I have been fighting GM. If anyone has had to get the vehicle in for service/recall program for the center high mount 3rd brake light, I strongly suggest anyone who owns a Gen 2 sedan to continuously check...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello, I have had 4 oil leaks to date. 2 head gasket and one was rocker cover gasket. The 4th one the dealership said they believe it was the coming from somewhere around the oil filter. I now notice a ticking and fluttering in the engine. Has anyone else had these problems? They have put dye...

    I have a 2013 Chevy Cruze that the drive axle seal on the transmission is leaking. I cannot find a video anywhere online that shows pulling the axle on a Cruze. Can you please help with instructions? Also the fluid leaking looks darker than trans fluid.

    I have just about 39k miles on my car and it looks to be developing an oil leak on the right side of the upper part of the motor. I can't tell exactly where it's coming from but looks like the intake. I'm aware there could be some fluid loss from the turbo oiling system but this looks excessive.

    Does anyone have any additional info on this issue, in particular, the trim replacement?
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    OK - 66K miles on my ECO MT. At the last oil change at 65K miles the tech pointed out an oil leak on the water pump side of my car. He cleaned the area and put dye in the oil to help track the source. Second leak is a loss of coolant with absolutely no odor. For this one I have checked the...
