  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Last oil change I used Mobil 1 extended performance high mileage oil and I assumed that it was dexos. I just realized that it wasn’t dexos and I’m wondering it could cause any harm to my engine? I don’t care about the warranty because i’m already past the warranty, i’m just wondering if it would...
  3. Gen2 Service Issues
    Hello friends ! ;-) I wonder how many liters of oil do you put in gen2 engine? I recently watched a video on Youtube, one guy filled in 5 cans of 946ml, this is 4.73 liters in total, is that how it should be? after all, according to the manual for the book, there are 4 liters, I always fill...

    Hey all, Very sorry if this is a repeat thread, I searched for one that asked about this and couldn't find anything, just a very quick question. Is there a way to change the oil life Indicator %? I would prefer to look into changing my oil when it's around 20% and I forget to actually look to...
  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello I wasn't quite sure where to post this issue I'm having but I'm really unsure of what there is I can do to fix this. There is spring sticking out from the oil drain hole. I don't know what else there is to say.
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I bought my 2012 LT RS with 129,xxx it now has 167,xxx. I’ve had to replace almost everything in the car. 2 turbos, water pump, thermostat, transmission, valve cover, spark plugs(4ish months ago), a few sensors, and probably other things. It’s always had oil changes at Chevy every 6,000. Anyway...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    While going to do an oil change today I noticed that my oil drain plug was 17mm instead of the 10mm that's found in the 'How to:' here on Cruzetalk. I'm the second owner of this car. I thought I would post here first and ask if there is something I should look or if I'm even about to pull the...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I read this post "Engine Oil - 1.4L Turbo Despite what your oil life monitor tells you, do not go past 6,000 miles on GM's ACDELCO DEXOS1 oil. Our oil testing analysis has shown that the oil is toast by 6,500 miles under light driving. With a turbo that exceeds 500 degrees F on a regular basis...
  9. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey everyone! I just bought my 2017 Cruze LT hatch with the 1.4T and 6MT yesterday. It's my very first new car, and I've never been so excited to start a new maintenance notebook! I've always kept perfect records with my older vehicles, but this one will finally have everything documented from...
  10. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I had my 2011 cruze in to the dealer for an oil change and other maintenance. When I picked up the car it almost immediately started running rough before effectively dying about 2-3 miles down the road. Lots of smoke from the tailpipe. After having the car towed back, they find that the...

    I notice that the oil life monitor in my 2011 Cruze started reducing the mileage between recommended oil changes. Up till recently, it used to show 50% oil life remaining after 9,000km but right after it hit 250k it started showing 50% at only 6,000km (I've always changed it at 50%). My driving...
  12. General Discussion
    Hi everyone, I wanted to ask my fellow Cruzetalk members if anyone has used oil flush when changing their oil? I remember reading somewhere that it will damage internal components on the 1.4T engine? I was wondering if anyone had more information or personal experience to share on this...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm getting close to 3000 miles on my Cruze. My dealer says the oil changes for this car can be done as late as 7000 miles, though I think I'll probably do mine around 5000 just as a personal precaution. However, 7000 miles, or even 5000, seems like a long time to go on the break in oil. So...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, so here's my mixed up post that has a little bit of everything in it... First! Trifecta Tune: For anyone who has ordered from BNR and you are still waiting on your data log to come in, check your junk mail folder.... Mine was sitting there for a while. More... Prior to ordering my...

    I have only had My 1.4 turbo 6 speed manual for 10,700 miles to the as of this moment 12,300 miles of its life. The guy before me had most likely driven it very easy since he was getting 37 mpg and lived in a retirement home. I have a couple of times hammered into it to use its full power...
