  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi, new here and hoping I am posting in the right place. Was reading this forum before I purchased my used 2011 Cruze Lt. Had it about a week and noticed the engine stays extremely hot even an hour after I shut the car off. The temp gauge never indicates that the engine is too hot. Also my dad...

    On Mach 5, 2019, error code "P0597" popped up on my 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ. Code went away after that.

    my go to guy for tires, ( i usually see him twice a year on my work vehicle for new rubber), talked me into trying Nitrogen in my tires a few years back. I was sold and it wasn't very expensive. If he's in a good mood most times he will throw it in with a purchase of new tires. Nitrogen...

    At least 3 times since June (car has approx 6700 miles) I've cranked the car, and it felt like it was running backwards. It ran for a bit, then stopped each time. Violently shaking for a bit, then shutting down . Restarting the car - everything is fine. Anyone else experienced this before?

    I am hoping some of you Cruze mechanic extraordinaires out there can help me make a diagnosis. My Son's recently purchased 2010 Cruze has some issues. The first symptom was the injector warning flashing on the dash and blowing a lot of white smoke about 3-5 minutes after starting engine...
  14. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    If I were to run a small gauge wire from the engine bay to the fuse panel inside the cab of the car, where would be the best place to run it through the firewall? I see a large rubber seal of some sort with a large wiring harness running through, but I'm not sure if I should go poking holes in...

    Need some advice here. I performed my first oil change at 7,500 miles and used Pennzoil Platinum Euro 5W-30 + OEM GM oil filter about 2 months ago. I drive a lot and because I am about to hit 14,300 miles, the time has come to research other Dexos 2 approved synthetic oils and possibly switch...

    Hello all, I need to refill my windshield fluid because this old one that the guy was using who I purchased from seems to leave irritatingly white marks on the spots where my wipers do not reach (top right corner and left hand side of the windshield looking out). Because the wiper fluid is low...
