    I've been having an issue with my 2013 Chevy Cruze Lt sputtering at idle and randomly raising the RPM at idle also. The P1101 code said it was the Mass Airflow Sensor so I replaced it and it does run a little better but I still have all the same symptoms as before just minus the P1101 Code. At...

    THE TIME HAS COME! I just received a letter from GM stating that they are providing additional protection for the PCV valve. 120,000 or 10 years whichever comes first. My Vehicle has almost 170,000 miles. They are also offering reimbursement. You best believe I am submitting all 4 camshaft...

    In April of 2019, our 2012 Cruze with just 47,600 miles started running rough. The dealer said it was the PCV valve, camshaft cover and intake manifold. The total repair cost us $903.01. I searched online for several hours and found dozens of owners with the same issue. I talked to 3 GM...

    I have been diagnosing this for a while now, I have been getting P0420 and P0299 codes plus low boost (3psi) and a burned oil smell at traffic lights. Seems the problem is a clogged PCV port at the cylinder head. My check valve is still in place and my vacuum diaphragm was acting normally. So...

    Hey guys, A little bit ago I had the hissing valve cover and the missing orange dot on the intake manifold on my 2012 Cruze Eco automatic. I replaced both the valve cover and the intake manifold, making sure to put some RTV on the seams. I'm happy to report that the car feels like it's running...

    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...

  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I’m going to do the pcv valve fix while I am fixing a rocker arm leak and also new seals in the cam sensor/actuators. My orange pcv valve is still intact. Do I pull it out with needle nose pliers or clip it off through the hole for the corrugated hose?
