    Hi everyone. My latest cruze issue is my cooling fan is running wild after replacing water outlet valve. Used new sensor that came with outlet valve.

    How do you know if your water outlet has failed? What else would dump coolant right below the water outlet? Should I replace the water outlet proactively since it's six years old even if it's not leaking? I recently found that my 2012 Cruze 1.4L coolant tank was empty. Also, I had the P0068...

    I have a 2012 Cruze with the 1.8L. Ever since I did the timing belt at 100k it's done nothing but nickle and dime me to death. Now it's this metal tube under the thermostat housing. I thought it was the housing and just replaced it and then started seeing the drip from the metal tube. I...

    Anyone have an idea if I can purchase just the clip that holds the surge line to the water outlet? It is just the metal clip that I'm looking for. Thank you in advance.

    I just noticed a slight smell of coolant today when I got home from work. I popped the hood and noticed that I've got a slight leak from where the coolant recovery tube connects to the water outlet. I took that end of the tube off and saw that the end of the tube is broken off inside of the...

    Got a dashcam recently and I want the thing running 24/7. Has a g-force sensor on it but it's so sensitive that I close my door and it starts recording, even on different settings. So I had to shut that off. The battery doesn't last all day, so I was wondering if there was a way to keep the...

    It looks straight forward as there are only 3 bolts to attach to the engine. Is there anything special I need to be aware of when replacing it? Thanks.
