  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    After overheating issues the dealer said I probably needed a new motor. I just preformed my first engine build and swap putting a ls v8 in a gmc jimmy. The 1.4 is built and installed completely different and can't seem to find one for under $1500. Would I be better of doing a used direct swap or...

  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    Issue: My Cruze has an odd issue. Wondering if anyone here has had a similar issue. When the oil dipstick is inserted my oil pressure drops off. The only way to keep oil pressure while the dipstick is inserted is by keeping the RPMs up over 2k. While at idle the low oil pressure light comes on...

  5. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hello, I'm new to the forum, I just got an '11 Cruze Eco with a 6-speed manual. Overall the car is good, it had some issues, but most of them are fixed now. The turbo in the car has a little free play and I was wondering anyone tried to rebuild their turbo with an eBay kit? any success? Any...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze Eco with the 1.4L Turbo and I am suspecting the turbo is going out and was curious if anyone has ever done a rebuild on the Turbo? I believe the Turbo is GT1446V. I have already done the PCV valve kit, replaced the Valve cover and checked compression on the motor, which...

    Hello, I have a 2011 Cruze 1.4L turbo with 138k miles. It has reciently developed a pretty bad rod knock and is burning oil and smoking blue from the tailpipe. I already changed the intake manifold and since this is a second vehicle I am ready to put it down for a while. Does anyone know where I...
  9. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Each time I go into Discount Tire they make a big stink about me declining to pay 8 bucks a tire to rebuild the TPMS sensors and it usually turns into a scene with the sales guy and me. I have a 2012 Cruze and they have already been rebuilt once however every 6 months when I bring it in to swap...

    Im at 125k Kilometers, and im burning oil pretty bad at idle. After tearing the engine down to the head, im pretty confident that i need new piston rings on 2 and 3. Ring lands are fine, valve guides are fine, bigger turbo is holding oil tightly. PCV system is in check, operating correctly (both...
