  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    I hit a large chunk of truck tire on the highway today, nothing I could do, the guy in front of me swerved last minute to avoid it but I had someone in either lane beside me so I had no choice but to hit it dead on. It damaged my spoiler and bottom of the grille which really stinks, I can't even...
  2. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So after doing (and continuing to do) some digging into what I can expect from a Cruze oil burner, I'm leaning towards a full delete on the motor. EGR, DEF, DPF, muffler- all of it, gone. Has anyone done this before, and if so, what can I expect as far as how the car will respond? Would prefer...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello, hoping someone can help. I have a 2012 Eco with almost 80 thousand miles on and yesterday I was going up a hill and it wanted to shake and almost die on me gave it a lil gas and it evened out but the service engine light came on after awhile it went off. Then on my way home it did it...
  4. General Discussion
    Hello everyone. I have a 2014 chevy cruze LTZ RS Turbo. Gas not Diesel. The other day I did a dumb thing and ran out of gas. I refueled the car completely. It is now registering FULL. I have tried restarting it for 3 days and it will not start back up. Is there a Fuel Pump reset? Inertia switch...
  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Made my own exhaust and Cai. I was just playing around and removed 2nd cat and ran it halfway down car and its about 6" short of sticking out from under passenger side. I removed the silencer and made my own CAI out of my old turbo piping from my mustang. Did not mess with anything else. We have...

  7. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    In case anyone is curious since I had heard many things about what actually happens when you run low on DEF. Got the first warning that stated 1,000 miles to empty. In the next few days no more warnings popped up. Next one stated approximately 330 miles to empty. From then on every time I...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    Sept. 29, checked campaign 14417, "check coolant level without a leak"; was told "no leak, coolant level ok"; two weeks later, car is presently in the shop at the dealership here, now quoted " need an engine coolant fan", not covered by the powertrain warranty. I feel it may have been the...
  9. General Discussion
    Just drove home and slowly going into the garage and went to apply the brakes and they were frozen. I pushed hard and got the car to stop two inches before I hit the wall in front me. I've had the car for a month and a half, never had an issue. Thought I was crazy so I put in it reverse and...
  10. CruzeTalk New Member Introductions
    Ran my first tank of fuel (93 octane) thru my new cruze...476 miles and averaged 38.4 MPG. This was 70 highway / 30 non. Noticed a major drop in mpg much over about 55mph...too impatient to drive 55 in a 70 though so about 125 miles were at 70 mph. In addition this milage was in western and...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, I ran out of gas today in my 2012 Cruze (oops...). Got a close relative to bring me gas, then I got right to the gas station and filled up. The Reduced Engine Power warning is still on my menu when I start the car up. No other lights or anything on, just that one and if I 'flip' through the...
  12. General Discussion
    So I was planning on getting gas as soon as I dropped by sister off at her graduation. Never in my mind did I imagine I would run out of gas on the way there. It really took me by surprise. I guess it was the sudden (and intense) use of the A/C throughout that tank that took a real drag on my...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    As some (although hopefully not many) of you are aware, when you run out of gas in these things the car is less than pleased with you and will cut engine power and generally cause a fuss for the next few hours to punish you for being a idiot and not buying enough gas. Driving this car on...
  14. General Discussion
    Hello, The other week I ran over some paint that must have fallen off a truck. I didn't see it until I was close enough and couldn't avoid it. Anyway, I took it to a car wash right away and scrubbed most of it off. I washed my car again this past weekend and noticed small daps of it on the...
