    Hello, everyone been having a problem with the coil pack.2014 Cruze 1.4T. Cylinder 1 keeps missing. Have swapped out two packs already and replace the spark plugs. First time it happens I chalked it to normal wear and tear. 85k miles in car. Did tune up replace plugs and coil pack. (AC Delco)...

    I took my 2014 Cruze LT into Krown for their usual rustproofing server and afterwards when I was in my trunk I found these two grommet/cap/plug things just sitting inside. I have to figure that they came from my car, specifically somewhere in the trunk, but there aren't any obvious places for...

    So went to go change my trans fluid and my transmission drain plug is rounded off. I can't seem to find a replacement anywhere. Any time I do a search it just brings up engine oil drain plugs. Any idea where I can find one? Thanks!

    What's up guys I'm pretty new to DIY automotive stuff and teaching myself as I go. I just replaced my old spark plugs today with ACDelco iridium plugs due to an intermittent rough idle. These are my old spark plugs - are these what burnt out/busted spark plugs look like just for my education...

    Has anyone tried repairing a stripped plug using a gasket maker like permatex instead of buying the entire water separator assembly? I stripped my plug tonight and I have to drive out of state on Tuesday morning. I cannot find an online source that will overnight the part to get it here before...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    2015 2LT, 67k miles, unknown maintenance history. Decided to replace my spark plugs. In the process of trying to remove my coil pack the boots of course were completely stuck to the plugs, got separated from the coil, and I totally destroyed them trying to remove. Ended up cutting out what...

    Just curious if anyone else out there has had experience with these things yet? I got one about a month ago, but I also gapped my plugs to .35 before I got it. I am going to get new plugs next month, but I am just curious what gap others are running and if they notice a difference running this...

    Hey, folks. Im in the process of replacing my turbocharger on my 2013 eco cruze and I went to drain the oil and the oil drain plug is stripped. I got bolt gripping sockets but it's stuck on there so bad they just started cutting into the plugs head. Currently about to try a bolt extractor kit...

    How can I check to make sure all glow plugs in an engine are functioning properly? Does the ECU display any error messages? Yesterday (during the polar vortex) it was -20°F when I started my car to leave from work. The starter engaged for a good 3-4 seconds and then the starter continued to...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I think I mentioned this before, was the oil drain plug changed on the 2014 LT? The drain plug on my 2014 is 10mm. I don't remember seeing it that small on my LS or Eco(those were 14/15 mm) and my 2013 RS has a 5/8. was the plug on my 2013 changed and 10 mm is the norm for 2013 and later? Just...

    I decided to check my spark plug gap today they are all right around 0.027 - 0.029. I'm going to try setting them all to 0.035 as I've read a lot of people noticing good results. I don't know much about spark plugs this is all a learning process for me.. I've done a little research and but would...

    Where it plugs into the compressor there is a snap ring for the electrical connector. Is it sealed and under pressure? I was thinking about removing the snap ring and just soldering the connections but i don't know if the snap ring is holding a seal under pressure.

    For those who change their own oil , i recommend that you replace that crappy 10 mm soft plug, before it gets rounded off. For 6 bucks you can buy a replacement with a 5/8 " head. A lot better than having to drop the pan.

    Today I was doing a few things to the ole Cruze and figured I'd check my spark plug gap. When I pulled out the plugs I noticed something odd, maybe. Does this look normal? I can't use a puck style gap tool to check because it's not flat.

    Hi. I have a 2012 cruze eco. I have stripped my original oil plug. I have bought, from autozone, a oil plug, M14-1.5. I also bought a package of washers, as below. The top two plastic washer work well. The bottom, aluminum(?) does not work well. I used standard spanner, as hard as I can...
  17. 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...
  18. Gen1 Service Issues
    Just thought I would let everyone know just in case. Check the plug gap before installing new plugs. I bought 4 new AC Delco plugs for my 2014 1.4L that were supposed to be pre-gapped at 0.028 They were not! All of them were wrong ranging from 0.022 to 0.024 A simple $1.50 tool was all I...

    I have the passenger side of my Cruze apart and remembered that my radio still only receives local stations, so I thought I would ensure the plug is all the way seated. I have shined a flashlight in there, but do not readily see the back of the head unit. Any suggestions?
