  2. Gen1 1.8L
    My brother has a 2012 LS with the 6M and ran into an odd issue last week. Before i I get started with last weeks issues I’ll start with the thermostat problems he had a month ago. He started getting the a/c off due to high temp messages with the temp gauge on cold. He ended up replacing the...

    Hi everybody, I have a 2012 european model Cruze with the 2 liter 163 Hp Z20D1 engine, manual tranny and lately it's been causing me a lot of sleepless nights :'( Among the many issues it has, the main one by far and most annoying is: below 2000 rpm it's like i have a 63 hp car, it's got no...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, My boost used to drop from 22+psi to 15-16psi before 5000rpm and the torque followed the boost curve. Now with the new BNR WGA and retune the boost holds consistently over 21+psi over 6000rpm, but there is no more power top end. With the retune the stock injector duty cycle is up from...

  7. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Swapped my steering wheel out for one with button controls and now I have no power steering and messages on the dashboard. I’m assuming that this may be related to the clockspring spinning too much and now some type of steering sensor is out of wack. Is anyone else familiar with this?

    2011 Eco 1.4 turbo with 6 speed manual transmission with 81,000 miles. I bought it needing a turbo. Replaced the turbo and oil feed and return lines, fresh oil change, etc. Stutters and stumbles occasionally and blows blue smoke out the tailpipe. I've done a ton of reading on here and have...

    I believe powering circuits 5040 and 5140 may "wake up" the interior fuse box, allowing the drivers power seat to move.. Good Luck

    A while back, I installed HID lights in my 18 Cruze. Was less than impressed. They looked like old tired mercury lamps, or metal halide that didn't come up to full power. Figuring they were cheap Chinesium HID ballasts and/or they sent the wrong ballasts or bulbs - I tried powering the 35w...

    This morning on my way to work, I was on the highway at normal highway speeds (60 mph) when suddenly I hear a small pop and lost all turbo power... the car still ran, no check engine light, it was just that the engines rpm's are higher and the engine seems to work harder to accelerate. Nothing...

    My daughter got into her 2013 cruze and started down the road and said the light came on and the car was very difficult to steer. After work she called me and I asked her to look under the front of the car. She said there appeared to be a small area of fluid under the left front bumper. She...

  16. Gen2 Powertrain
    In September, we bought a 2017 LS with 65,000 miles on it and have driven it about 3000 miles. Sometimes, when I am on the highway and pull out to pass, it feels like it downshifts and experiences hard deceleration. This lasts about 2-3 seconds then it up-shifts and smooths out. By then I...
