  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I installed a ZZPerformance cold air intake today, and a friend was behind me while I was driving, and told me that when my transmission shifts, blue smoke comes out of my exhaust. What could be causing this? The car has 165k miles on it.

  3. 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...

    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 %?

  5. Gen1 Service Issues
    This is a 2014 1.8L with about 94000 miles on it. Over the last 2 oil changes (which I do every 5k), I noticed that the oil level on the dipstick was a little more than 1 quart low. So it's slowly losing oil. But I'm not seeing any puddles on my garage floor and I can't see any obvious places...

    My 2012 Cruze RS has 126,000+ miles. Had an oil smell. Changed o-rings and gaskets on oil cooler. Smell showed up occasionally. I thought I had twisted a gasket. Took it back off and everything looked fine. Oil smell returned fewer and farther between trips to work. Driving home this evening I...

    A few weeks I did the oil cooler gasket/ o-ring replacement. Now I have oil collecting on the body itself. There’s nothing above leaking that I can tell. Clean around valve cover. Small small amount of oil around oil fill cap. No evidence that it has ran and dripped down.
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, Today I was attempting to self-diagnose a couple of issues I’ve been having with my Cruze. The first issue is that I’ve had an intermittent CEL (P0420). Lately, the code has not gone away and I’ve been noticing a drastic drop in mpg. I changed the oil on the car ~ 600 miles ago. Today I...

    Hi, My car (Chevy Cruze 2010 1.6) is burning oil (No oil leaks), so the oil level decreases around 1 Litre every 1000KM (600 Miles). The mechanical said it may be costy to fix it, so he advice me to change the oil from 5w30 to 10w30, is that can really help?

    I got fend up with the Valvoline oil change place I was going to, service became very inconsistent and the quality/workmanship of the workers seemed to keep going downhill. So now, I'm going to try an independent place that had almost 5 star rating on Yelp. At Valvoline I usually got the...

    I keep having to add oil to my 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ due to a persistent oil leak that keeps trying to run the oil tank dry. My garage mechanics noticed "a trickle" of oil coming out of my oil pan when they last checked my car a couple weeks ago. Do I have a cracked oil pan, or a failing head gasket?

What are the odds that...
