  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a major oil leak on the right side of the engine around the spring which I am assuming is the belt tensioner. It is leaving me a nice little puddle daily. I am not sure if it is the mail seal or not. I already have replaced the intake manifold and valve cover gasket 3 months ago.

    General question: Would going from Factory Cruze 16" steels which have an overall diameter of 664mm to Factory Sonic 15" alloys which have an overall diameter of 634mm cause me any real problems? I'd have the smaller tires on for 30k miles or so.

  12. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So, this morning i was changing the oil like i normally do, and as i was pouring the oil, I noticed there was a little blip as it was pouring out of the bottle.

    I am 17 and own a 2012 LS so please don't be judgmental. I was going along a small two lane road late one night after work at 1 am so there were no other cars on the road. Having been curious about my 2012 LS hand brake, I promptly pulled the lever as hard as I could. Then I tapped the brake...

    This weekend I got my hands on the 2 underbody air deflectors that Buick Veranos have. For the most part, it is a direct fit as the cruze floor pans are almost identical. I attached mine by drilling a few extra holes, treating the bare metal with some protectant, and using the plastic push...
