    As winter rolls in I'm starting to notice the smell of gasoline when I start my car up in the morning. I ordered a new purge valve solenoid, when that arrives I'll install it. Just curious if there's anywhere else I should be looking if that does not solve the issue. Sent from my SM-G950U...

    Question to any 2014 Cruze owners: My 2014 Cruze has developed a fuel/emissions odor/smell over the past few months. It now has 80K Km. (50K mi) on it. I have taken it into the dealer, who changed the PCV recently, some seals for the coolant system and oil pan. They even changed the filters...

    Mystery leak: I recently replaced the turbo oil feed line on 2011 80k+ 2lt rs package Cruze. Oil has stopped seeping from that line but the noxious smell of burning oil remains at idle and intensifies with the heat on. Oil is clearly leaking into or onto the exhaust but from where I'm not sure...

    It is my wife's car and she has a pretty good sense of smell. I told my wife the interior just has a new car smell, but she said she has never smelled such an offensive odor in any of our new cars. We purchased our Kinetic Blue Premiere Automatic with the black leather interior, navigation...

    Hi! I'm new to the Forum. I have a 2014 Cruze and recently detect a foul odor on the inside of the car. At my last oil change, I asked them to check the cabin filter and was told it was fine. This happens whether the air conditioning is on or off. Has anyone else had this problem? Any...

    I had a 2012 Cruze ECO and now a 2015 ECO. This is a great car and with 42 mpg is very efficient. I had the coolant problem with both cars and have worked with dealers and GM about 3 years and still have the problem. Many customers having the same issues that cannot be resolved in 2011 through...

    So basically when I originally bought the car, the heat would not work at all so I took it in to get serviced and it turns out there was basically no coolant in it. They checked for leaks and everything and ended up repairing or installing a new water pump, one of the two. Anyways, since that...

    Just started getting fumes (exhaust or crankcase blow-by) in the cabin through the ventilation vents of my 2012 2LT auto (about 32k miles). I notice the fumes after the car has warmed up and the car is stationary. No odor if I switch to recirculate, and no odor when the car is moving. Plan to...

    I took my 2012 cruze to the dealer today, I can feel the odor coming on the driver side for quiet some time - when i told the supervisor to check - they came back and told me the HVAC CASE has to be replaced with a new one. Looks like something melted down due to the heat. He said it will cost...

    Hello, I have a 2014 chevy cruze 1LT automatic. Randomly throughout my drive I smell a burning smell. Other times I smell maybe a sweeter scent. The problem is, it is very infrequent. Even worse, it is usually when other cars are around (at a stop light for example) - maybe it's coming into my...

    About a week ago half the contents of one of those Everfresh brand grapefruit juices (comes I'm a glass bottle) emptied out of my rear drivers side carpet. I had down the oem rubber floor mats with the grooves in it which thankfully captured some of it, however the perimeter of carpet around the...

    Evidently I am not the only Cruze owner experiencing a foul odor emanating from the ducts when the defrost is turned on, especially when the temperature control knob is turned to maximum. Seems like the odor could have more than one source. Anybody out there encounter this problem, where the...

  16. Gen1 Powertrain
    Wondering if anyone here has had this happen or heard of this happening. When I take my Cruze to the, let's say theatre, when I come back out and start her up if I have left the climate controls on defrost I'll notice a strong smell of gasoline from the vents when I turn off defrost mode and...
