    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.
  2. Gen1 Powertrain
    So awhile back, my check engine light came on. I checked the codes and there was three that related to my thermostat. I talked to the auto store guys and they said its pretty common to replace them because they are originally made of plastic and tend to crack. I did some research on my own and...

    There is metal paneling in the rear of my 2013 RS by the rear suspension, is this needed?(I am thinking of the under body panel put on the front back in 2011) I am hearing something in the rear when I turn up a curb into a parking lot/driveway. Everything back there appears to be very...

    Is there a paint that gives the same finish as the black dull metal on the back edge of the front door? 2015 LT2 Mine<br>has some lightening happening which may be from the Chev dealer doing something to it getting it ready to resell.

    Hey guys, This morning I had an appointment with my dealer to get a recall repair done. I went out and started the car to begin driving there, and was greeted with this wonderful noise coming from the engine: What in the world is that noise??!?! Today was the first time it has done that...

    So I back out of my long, palatial driveway each morning and then head down my serene, tranquil street to work. (So I can pay for my Cruze.) It seems as I do this every morning I seem to feel/hear the sound of like a metal flap opening or closing underneath the car near the engine. I don't...

    My understanding is that the early 2011 Cruze models had thinner sheet metal in the ECO models to save weight. Then at some point GM did a running change and all the Cruzes got the same sheet metal as the ECO. Does anybody know the VIN breakpoint or month when this happened? I'd like to know...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    ok, had the car for almost 2 months now and have 2000 miles on it. I just got home from work and as i came to a stop to turn right onto my street, i heard the metal grinding/rubbing noise that my blazer used to make when the brakes were bad. I crawled "under" when i pulled in and the pads are...
