  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, so I believe I had the recall waterpump replaced early in my 2013 LS’s life. Then in Nov of 2018 my second water pump busted wide open. I got it replaced with a new oem. 13 months later in Dec 2019 this one started leaking too. It’s leaking only a few drops at a time, not enough to drip to...

    I got a 2013 Cruze LT 1.4 Turbo and it's leaking coolant. I can see it wet right under the top coolant reservoir and leaking down below it but when I pulled it out to inspect under it, I didn't see any obvious leaks from it, not from the plastic container itself nor any of the hoses connected to...

    Is the Windshield Washer Reservoir Cap replaceable? When I look up, the part comes back as either the whole tank or the filler neck.
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    I had the car at the dealership for the 3rd time in almost 2 years. Last time i had to have a whole new water pump. The code popped up and my mechanic stated my thermostat was not tightened. As a result of these codes my auto starter wont start which i know is a safety gm has on the cars...

  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    I've had the typical coolant issues with this car from the beginning (bought new in June 2012, now has 310k) but they have reared their ugly head again. We're finding we have coolant boiling in the reservoir now, and at times have even heard it boiling in the top of the engine (My Wife has...

    So aside from having a bunch of different names,, this thing is such a bitch to clean that I'm considering buying a third one!! A third one, you may wonder?? Yes.. I recently changed the seals on my engine oil cooler assembly because it was leaking engine oil and letting engine oil into my...
  8. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi everyone, I have a 2012 Chevy Cruze with a manual transmission (1.8L engine). I recently put my fingers inside the coolant reservoir because it looked really dirty and to my surprise there was a bunch oil in there. The reservoir tank has been looking dirty for a while but I did not make...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So it took me a few months to realize that the reason my coolant reservoir tank in my 13' Cruze LT isnt sitting right is that it is missing the clip on the right hand side (if youre facing the engine). Where can I find this clip? What is it called? I cannot find it anywhere online. Any help...
  10. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm not sure if there is a for sale section on here, or if I have not reached the requirements to post in it. Either way, part #23377881 , The dealer installed it about 2 weeks ago, less than 200 miles on it. $100 shipped

    New Special Coverage on the emission reduction fluid tank reservoir due to the issues with the heater elements. Looks like GM is moving through the emissions system piece by piece...... (Note: This also applies to the 6.6L Duramax Express, Savana, Silverado, and Sierra.)
  12. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    In observing the many threads about the P21DD code, DEF heater failures, and DEF reservoir replacements, there seems to be a ton of misinformation floating around. Since I just replaced mine, I thought I'd start this thread to clear things up. I may add a how-to on the procedure later if I...

    I have a leak at the T connection on the water outlet and the hose of the upper coolant reservoir line. I bought a new line, part 13251447. So the new hose shows up and the connection at the water outlet is different and doesn't appear to fit my older style outlet. So I still have a leak...
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    Just wondering if anyone had this issue and how it was resolved. On Monday, I noticed my car smelled of coolant, and underneath was a small puddle of Dex-Cool. Brought it to the dealer, they found that the coolant hose and adapter @ the turbo was bad. They changed it, took 3 days, picked it up...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    I ran a search and there is still some confusion in my mind. Is the arrow on the coolant reservoir the min hot, min cold, max hot, or max cold? I already read the manual and it says coolant should be at the top of the arrow. But the manual doesn't say if the top of the arrow in min or max...

    Does anyone know where the power steering tank is on a 2012 cruze with an Eco engine in it? It is not in an obvious place. Thanks in advance. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App

    So... I accidentally grabbed a jug of what I thought was washer fluid... Turns out it was used engine coolant. Oops. Was going to drain the washer fluid reservoir and rinse it out. Is there an easy way to do this (say, a drain plug under the reservoir) other than siphoning? Lesson learned. Mark...
