    Sorry about all the questions I’m about to ask guys! I’m trying to learn. I tried google but it was oddly lacking. So my tires have a moderate amount of dry rot on them. From what I understand, this means they’re toast. So this leaves me with a bunch of questions as I move to replace them (and...

  3. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    For those of you knowledgable about diesel engine emissions, I have some questions. Why don't engine manufacturers create exhaust treatment systems that use exhaust gasses from after the DPF? The biggest issue with EGR in diesel engines is the soot going into the intake where it can gum things...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello folks. My trunk latch mechanism is apparently fried - it hasn't work in several months, and now the trunk is opening by itself. I have seen the other threads on this issue, but I have a couple immediate questions: will it open by itself if the car is locked? if yes, is there a fuse I...

    When having your vehicle repaired at GM/Chevy dealership, are those repairs backed by a warranty? I had my oil pan gasket replaced due ton a leak and months later the leak has returned. Leak returned in under a year and only 5000 miles. Surely a proper oil pan gasket would last note than a few...

    My son has a 2018 Cruze with a cracked windshield. The dealer told him that his windshield has a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, a noise buffer and of course some sort of coating to filter out some types of light. These features make for a somewhat expensive replacement windshield -...
  7. Gen1 Service Issues
    Good morning everyone. This morning I went out to start my car for work only to find the "AC Off due to high engine temperature" warning i've seen floating around on the forums about the car before. I've deduced its either the thermostat or temp sensors gone out. My question doesnt exactly...
  8. RockAuto
    Has anyone else realized that Rockauto is charging their customers tax on the shipping cost? I don't believe that's a proper calculation in Minnesota. While I have sent them messages they haven't responded. Why should the customer pay additional tax if they select $20 fast shipping over...

    When replacing the torque converter seal on a first gen automatic, do the axle shafts have to be removed from the transmission? I know the transmission has to be lowered and I order to do this do the dealerships/shops remove any of those?

    Okay so I started off cruzing with a new 2017 LS and at 70k miles and better credit I traded up to a new 2018 LT. As most of us know the new updated models for 2019 are coming in and after seeing them online and in person I of course want one but I don't want to take that punch again. Talked to...

    2016 Cruze 48xxx miles Hey everybody, I've recently noticed a loss in power and even kind of a judder feel when accelerating. It isn't jerky but more of a warble that finally goes away around 4k. Maybe it's waiting for a certain amount of boost :unsure: , I don't know. This is my first forced...

  13. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I have a 2017 Cruze Diesel Auto with 29,000 miles on it and absolutely love it. I am considering putting an after market exhaust system in (removing the muffler) to increase fuel economy even more. Has anyone done this and what were your results? How much did your fuel economy increase? How...
  14. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I'm not sure if i'm in the right place but I have a couple questions. Hopefully someone can answer or point me in the right direction. I have a 2013 Cruze LTZ Pioneer system. I've had the car since 2014 and never really used the navigation. Recently I started using it. I also just subscribed...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So my engine light was on and a friend of mine who's much more knowledgeable than me in all things mechanical, had a diagnostic code reader with him (of course he did, why wouldn't anyone), plugged it in my car, and the P0299 code came up. Also I can hear a faint sound that's hard for me to...
  16. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Thinking about getting a set of rims for winter wheels and have some questions about what tire pressure monitoring sensors to get and how to program/relearn. 1. OEM vs. Aftermarket sensors - Anyone have experience with the sensors that Belle Tire (or similar) sells/installs? Do they utilize...

    Being that we don’t get a spare tire, does anyone know the correct compact/donut size to work with the 195/65r15 tires on the 2018 LS? Q2 is, has anyone put in the Rostra cruise control on the 2018 LS? Thanks y’all.
  18. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Roughly 500 mi ago I had the original tires replaced and balanced in my 83k '14 1LT due to some shoulder wear and general splitting (still had a bit of tread left). The car felt a bit odd in the front at highway speeds though (extra shaking in the wheel over time), yet always drove straight and...
  19. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Can anyone recommend for me a tune for my 2.0l diesel that also contains a delete for the emissions equipment? In my area emissions aren’t really monitored and I want a bit more power and to be able to install a down pipe and change out my exhaust for a different sound. That’s the biggest...

    Hey, I got a K&N Typhoon (http://store.badnewsracing.net/KN-Typhoon-Intake-2016-Chevrolet-Cruze_p_639.html) intake coming in on Wednesday and I wanted to get some things clear. I've seen on the forum that you have to disconnect the negative battery terminal when you install it or else you will...
