plugs

  1. Gen2 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the Cruze forum. I have a 2018 Cruze LS and have been searching for the small black plugs that seal up the lower rocker panel. It looks like something scraped the rocker and pulled the plug out. There are about 9 of these on the rocker panel that keep water/dirt/debris...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I read the "hesitation...gone!" thread and I was going to get some spark plugs ordered when I ran into an issue. So I thought I would start with the stock plugs and go from there. It seems every website thinks I should use AC Delco 41-121 spark plugs. And my owners manual clearly states...
  3. Gen2 Powertrain
    I’ve been searching a reading all around these forums and I’m just not sure what spark plugs to go for. I have the trifecta tune (which is amazing, waxed a legacy 2.5 get yesterday), I’m running 93 octane, but I get intermittent shaking particularly in fifth and sixth when accelerating. Say I’m...

    Hey guys, I am getting ready to replace the spark plugs in my 17 premier. I was curious to know what plugs you guys use, I have the ACDelco 41-153 plugs in there currently. Also what is the torque setting that they want them at?

    Hi, been lurking for a while. 16 cruze limited (1st gen) 6mt I installed BKR8EIX plugs and in 30-50 Thousand kilometers my car got a bad misfire under load. Dealer swapped ignition coil. It ran better but still had a misfire under load. I pulled the plugs and had 3 ngk plugs and one ac delco...

    Thought you all might like to see what my oem spark plugs look like at 107k. Just got them changed.
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, so it's time to replace my spark plugs, and I was searching through the forum for the best ones for my 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco (1.4l). I came across this thread: https://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/34-gen1-1-4l-turbo/21850-hesitation-gone.html So from what this guy says is that the copper...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    2011 Cruze 1.8 LS Just replaced the thermostat housing. Put it back together and have a coolant leak at the 90 degree elbow that plugs into the top stem. Upon examination, part of the old 90 degree elbow and the o-ring were broken off in the old housing. Having a hard time to find a diagram...
  9. 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...

  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    First off, I'm wondering if it's the PCV as its 120k all stock, but other than poor MPG I haven't seen any signs of PCV failure, but I haven't hunted either.<br> <br> I've always done the NGK coppers, but sometimes within a few hundred miles I start to get spark blowout. After 1-2k sometimes it...

    I see RockAuto listing 153 as an option and 151 as standard. What's the difference between the two?
  13. Gen1 Service Issues
    I know this has been mentioned before but it's worth saying again, if you haven't checked your spark plugs for a while I recommend you go do it now! I just checked mine because I realized I had set them wrong the last time. It's been about 30K and all four of them were loose as could be! I mean...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was browsing, and I noticed that Bosch is now listing a double iridium spark plug for the Cruze. I cannot find it available anywhere, but they have a part number for it. It looks like the Bosch double iridium plugs were introduced late last year. Bosch 96306...

    Hi! New Cruze owner here. Just wanted to search for help with wiring my new aftermarket headlights. I bought Winjets which was descibed to be plug and play. But it turned out that the connectors in my car are different from those on the headlights. I don't know if those in my car are older plugs...

    Do the cruzes come with rocker panel plugs from the factory? Mine has them and one is missing, wondering if anyone has a part number or knows where to get new ones.
  17. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Ok, I have never pulled a set of plugs with deposits like this... never on any vehicle I have ever owned, and I have had plenty dirt bikes, go karts, cars trucks, vans, tractors, lawn mowers... you name it. Background on my car. 2014 1LT manual, 60,000 miles. oil changes every 7000 miles...
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Put in new plugs tonight. Gapped them to .032 Cruze has 76,500+ miles. I assume the plugs in it were OEM. They are NGK Iridium IFR7X76. They looked reasonably good. They were gapped to .24/.25. Looking forward to seeing how my MPG improves. Thank you everyone for all the information on the...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Can anyone please advise on which is the preferred NGK replacement plug; the copper or iridium? Thank you.
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    Right, so I searched this topic prior to posting this, and didn't find the information I was looking for. My 2012 Cruze, with 1.4L turbo, is at 98k, and I recently acquired the service history. It looks like the plugs haven't been done yet, and I was rooting around in the service information...
