  1. Gen1 1.8L
    Engine speed at 60 MPH is important information for some folks. Just so everyone knows, the Cruze LS (1.8L) with 6 speed manual transmission is turning 2,300 rpm at 60 MPH in top gear. Proof below!

    Post your RPM at 100 kilometres per hour in sixth gear with the 1.4L turbo cruze. I have a 2014 cruze 1.4L turbo running the stock rims and tires I am at 2400rpm at 100KPH. This seems a little high as both my Equinox and Avalanche run around 2000rpm at 100KPH. I thought with a six speed...

    I'm new to this forum and to owning a Cruze, I recently purchased a 2011 eco m/t and I seem to experience a strangle rattle at around 2,000 rpm mostly after some spirited driving. Here is a video I recorded, it appears to be coming from the front passenger side of the dash. I still have...

    hello everyone, my 2011 chevy cruze LS 1.8L auto 78,000 miles, seems to make a strange chirping noise while accelerating at low rpms. For example once my car shifts into 3 gear and I am traveling about 15mph and I accelerate further just enough so that the car doeskin down shift it'll make that...
  6. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I would like to hear from other owners of the Diesel regarding idle rpm. Mine is about 825 when warm. At this speed the creep when stopped is a lot. With foot off I can go 10kmh. I can really feel the engine working against the trans. I think chev needs to look at this. Any comments?

    For the last few months I've noticed upon cold starting/ until the engine goes into closed loop, the rpm fluctuates. It goes back and forth between approximately 1000 to 1200 RPM (the first small line after the 1000 RPM marker). It has done this in all ambient temperatures ( from 20 degrees F to...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi. I have a 2012 Cruze RS with a 1.4L Turbo. It has 64,000km/40,000mi on it. The car has been a dream to own and I have only done oil changes, an air filter change recently, and one wiper blade change. The past week or two I have noticed that when at a stop light or sign, with the clutch...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi. I am completely new to the forum and tuning in general but I am a little curious about my options for boosting power at low and midrange RPM. Basically I switched from a pretty old Mazda 323f 2.0 diesel, which only had 100HP and lots of turbo lag, but more torque. As a result the cars feel...
  10. Fuel Economy
    Hello everyone I was wondering what is the best RPM's for a auto transmission when pulling out of a red light/stop sign. What should be the highest rpm's I shouldn't exceed on daily driving/highway.

    I bought the car used about 7 months ago and have put 5k miles on it. I recently changed air filter, oil, oil filter and spark plugs.The noise was there before this and is still there after. No other way to describe than a groaning noise that comes on around 1900-2100 rpms. It happens almost...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just purchased my Cruze a few weeks ago and this is my first car with a Turbo. I didn't test drive the car I bought, but a different one. Ever since I took mine home when I shift into 3rd, 4th(most noticeable) and 5th gear between 2200-2600 RPM the engine makes a almost grindy/whiney noise...

    Gen1 Powertrain
    Not sure if I'm losing my mind, but I think my RPM's when driving on the highway have gone up. I have a 2012 2L RS 1.4L 6M and currently 36,200 miles When driving home tonight I noticed the tach at 3000 when doing 80mph. Is that RPM at that speed normal?
  14. Gen1 Service Issues
    Used remote start feature as I have many times. Heard the car start normally. 2-3 min later I'm getting ready to leave and the car is screaming at like 5000rpm constantly. Used the remote to shut it off. Then got in and started it with the key and all was fine. Took it for a drive, everything...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hello all! I have a new 2014 Cruze LT 1.4 automatic with 1300 miles on it. A new noise has developed. Not sure if it was the intake bypass, colder weather, or regapping the plugs to .035, but it seems to have started soon after regapping the plugs. At an rpm range of 2300-2500, regardless of...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey Guys. So I messed with my intake the other day and when I put it back in everything seemed fine but I am almost certain my rpms dropped down. Right now i'm sitting at about 700. What are the rpms suppose to be sitting at? and is this a problem that my rpms are low? I have a 2013 1.4t. Thanks

    With a Trifecta tune to remove the neutral 4000 RPM limit, you get to about 45 or so , drop to neutral, floor it to 6000-6500 and without lifting your foot put it into drive. If you did it right your needle will bounce like you're playing Need For Speed! *Yay totally worth it just for that and...

    My 2012 Cruze is not blowing heat unless car is at high rpm. When idling it blows cold air,when driving,I have to drop a gear at highway speed to get any heat.
  19. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a new 2013 chevy cruze lt....first off...before i even made a payment my brakes went out! The dealer said that a bolt was not torqued right at the factory, letting my brake fluid all leak out. I had that fixed, no problem. However, I have noticed that when I am in park and pull out...
  20. Gen1 Powertrain
    Would this be possible at all? Either through a tune or hardware mod? Basically Id like to push the VVT activation RPM down to 4k because reasons :p. I know this will degrade the engine faster but does it risk a catastrophic failure after time (aka BOOM)?
