  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Just curious where the different air intake temperatures are taken and what they should be. I have two X Gauges, IA2 and IA3, but I would assume there is a IA1 as well. IA3 is always the highest so I assume this may be post-turbo, pre-intercooler? IA2 is a little lower but seems to get kind of...

    Or, what values do others see if anyone is measuring this on their Scangauge or other gauge? Still trying to figure out why my car is so sooty and performance isn't as consistent as it used to be (see my frequent regen thread for that drama), so I'm trying to learn about various parameters and...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    My mom has had a 2012 chevy cruze 1.4L Turbo LT 6 years and she bought pre-owned at 25k miles. Recently found out she has been using conventional oil for the last 40k miles since then and has had it done ever 3k miles at the locate Walmart. Reminder her to look at the manual to show she needed...

    I've installed a K&N cold air intake on my 2018 Cruze LT 1.4T sedan and am hearing a sound that I've not experienced before in my previous cars that I had with CAI's. Here's a link to the sound file... see what you all think. Adam
  5. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hi fellow cruze owners, The engine on my cruze is making noises that were not there when I first bought the car. First, the rattling noise that is coming from the rear rightside of the engine...is this just from the cam pressing the valves open? and the second one is a hissing/friction noise...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    I had work done on the radiator roughly four months back at ~115k miles on my 2012. Off the top of my head I can’t remember exactly what was done but it wasn’t anything unexpected for this car at this mileage. Everything was cleaned, fluids replaced and such. There was a whoopsie moment when the...

    I have a 2014 1.8 Cruze with 49000 on it I was changing the oil and noticed the cams looked interesting I don’t know if it is normal or not for it to look worn at the cam lobe. If anyone could let me know that would be great.
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Issue has been occurring over the past 2 weeks every time i drive the car. Gas mileage has surprisingly stayed relatively the same and the car drives like it normally does. The issue is the car will won't even get close to 1/4 temp on the instrument cluster and with the digital thermostat it...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everybody, This is my first post in the forum. I am coming from a 99 Pontiac Grand Prix with a 3.8L N/A engine which has plenty of torque and power, anyway when I'm driving my 13 cruze 1.4L turbo, it feels like it has no power below 3000 RPM after that I get all the power all at once seems...
  10. Gen2 Audio & Electronics
    Hello we have a new cruze gen 2 it did not come w/ satellite radio but did used to give radio song info....its gone. Is that because we did not keep the onstar and wifi free trial when it expired? Thanks just making sure.
  11. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Hi, I see half of my valve cover bolts are rusted. I only have 50K miles on my 2013 Cruze LT. Also, I see a lot of rust build up on those bolts that hold the engine shield I think. This looks like excessive rust for a 4 years old and 50K miles car. Should I worry? Is this normal? I need to...
  12. Gen2 Service Issues
    How much wind noise is acceptable for this vehicle? I just had mine at the dealer for several days due to the wind noise that they acknowledged. They replaced the door seals on the driver and passenger side, but when I picked up my vehicle, the service advisor said the noise is normal, because...
  13. General Discussion
    Hello everyone! If this post would be better suited in another forum section, please let me know. I recently bought a 2014 LTZ RS, with 36,000 miles. So far I am enjoying it! The fuel economy is good and I find it to be a pretty comfortable car. I don't have any performance mods but I am...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just hope I am not paranoid but yesterday I started my car & listened to it & it sit there making a whoosh whoosh whoosh sorta like in a pulse style sound. This doesn't do it at all at cold start up, only once it reaches normal 'home' temp. There isn't any power loss, or anything of that...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Late last week on the way home I suddenly got the message "AC off due to high engine temp" message, and the temp gauge starting spiking. I had just checked the coolant level the day before and it was fine, but turned the heat and fan on high and pulled over as quick as I could and checked the...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just got my brand new cruse, Limited 2016, and when the car is running 2000 to 2500Rpm i ear a weird sound like a stright pipe Civic [emoji14] . Is that normal? Sent from my LG-H812 using Tapatalk

    There is no way to close the dash vents on my Cruze and all time my front glass has fog due to humidity, went to dealer and they says this is normal, it is? Anybody with same problem here? Any suggestion? Thanks,

    Purchased a CPO 2015 Cruze LTZ, and after 3 weeks of my wife driving to work and back home she's averaged ~17mpg. It was looked at today, they drove it (100 miles?!?!), checked for any codes and said it was operating as expected. Except, I expected better than 17mpg and they seem to think this...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    What temperature should me engine be running at? In a effort to better balance my MPG to horsepower, I purchase an ODBII adapter so I could run a performance application on my phone. The first thing I noticed is the application is reporting my engine is running hot at 220. This was during normal...
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    So I am sure anyone who drives a Cruze could say if they also experience the same thing, but too me it feels abnormal... Complete stop with foot on the brake for about 4-5 sec of no movement is necessary to replicate issue. (i.e. stop light, stop sign etc.) Let go of brake without touching...
