  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just bought a cruze for my child's first car. So he took an hour drive and got the error that ac was hot and turned off. Then he said it felt like the transmission was chugging along. Until the vehicle cooled down. He also finds the rpm gauge fluttering. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze 1.4 LT. I was driving on the highway when I got the High engine temp- idle vehicle message. Pulled over and popped the hood and had white smoking coming from near the coolant overflow area. After letting it cool a bit I popped open the coolant overflow cap and there was...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have had this car since February 2022 and it stopped working after a few months because of the coolant system I’m not sure exactly what happened but the water outlet pipeline on the driver side broke off inside the radiator hose that’s located on the driver side and leaked coolant everywhere...

    Hey everyone, Happy Easter! I am looking for some advice on my 2014 1.4L Turbo (126k miles) that is having overheating issues. The problem arose when I replaced the valve cover gasket and decided to top off my antifreeze. My hand slipped and I ended up overfilling the expansion tank. No biggie...

    Hi all, I have a 2013 Chevy Cruze LS (1.8L) and it's got some problems I'm not sure how to address. About a month ago I took a long trip to Iowa and back and when we got back to our destination after about 5 minutes my cooling fan turned on. (My car just hit 140k miles, if that is of any...

    So I finished a head job recently on my cruze and I have hopped through a bunch of hurdles as is, but now it overheats! the coolant boils over into the revisor tank and overflows... great! First thought of course is that I messed up the head gasket, but I got a new head, felpro gasket, new...

    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze, and have replaced the water pump, thermostat, water outlet, and the purge solenoid but my car constantly overheats unless my heat is turned on and at least level 2. I can keep my car idle and parked without the heat on and it is fine but once i go over 30 mph without...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    Let me preface this by saying this is my brothers car. About a month or 2 ago, He overheated the car. In the process of trying to get the coolant levels right, overheated it again. This time, it shut down and was nearly impossible to get it home, but it jumped, and we limped it home. We had a no...
  9. Gen1 1.8L
    I have changed the thermostat 3 times. I still get p0597. Finally figured out that I’m not getting any ground from the blue wire that connects to the thermostat. So I rigged it so it grounds to the engine. Now the heater works but still get the code and sometimes it try’s to over heat but the...

    I have a 2012 Cruze 1LT with the convenience features and a Apple CarPlay head unit and 146,000 miles. This car is my first car and hand-me-down from my dads old work car.

    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze LS 1.8L. Had a first time occurrence with a warning message that read “AC Shut off High Engine Temp” I had been running errands in the middle of traffic hour.

  12. Gen1 Service Issues
    So about a week ago my radiator hose popped off while I was driving and I had no way to pull over (shoulder was too narrow) and the car started overheating. After putting it back on and filling up with as much coolant I had in the car I was able to make it home. Over the next day or 2 I added 2...
  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    Had “ac shutting off do to high engine heat” come on look at my temp gage and it’s all the way to cold. Did a little research and what I’m finding is it could be the temp Sensor, anyone else running into this problem.
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    Ok, need some help on this one. Currently rocking a 2011 Chevy Cruze 6spd, new engine and replaced turbo, got it off a guy at work. Issue is, it likes to overheat when idling when the air is on. Not just A/C, but any air. As soon as I take off, everything goes down and it's fine??? It'll...

So far I’ve had to replace he ignition coil, I have replaced several coolant hoses, a junction on the driver side of the block, the water pump, and the thermostat.

    I have a 2012 Cruze LTZ, a few months ago, it started overheating and the temp sensor was all over the place and eventually would force out all the coolant from the cap on the overflow. According to what I found, I determined it to be the thermostat that was causing the issue. I replaced the...

    (Name of facility omitted since they are making good on it.) Five years ago, I purchased a 2012 ECO brand new off the showroom floor. Five years later, I've nearly paid it off and the car has 52,000 miles and looks brand new. This is a short miracle, considering that most of the time I have...

    Hello! I have heard stories of issues with the Cruze overheating. Here's what happened to me. Last fall, I noticed that the heat didn't seem to be working. I turned it on vent, so I could feel with my hand and unless I was moving steadily, the heat would not come out. I arrived at my job 25...
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    My lower coolant hose came off yesterday and caused me to get an "engine overheat" warning on the dash so I pulled over and let everything cool down and fixed the hose and add new coolant. I was almost home when it happened so not a huge deal Well now for some reason the A/C compressor isn't...
