  1. General Discussion
    Hello, My 2014 Cruze has 93,000 miles on it and have discovered the squeaky noise coming from the engine. By a previous post discovered by pulling the dip-stick the noise went away, so the PCV may be an issue, I checked it and everything there is fine its not sucking any air. So, its the crank...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've been researching a noise on my Chevy Cruze that started about a month ago. I thought it was a pulley or belt but I do not think it is. I watched a few videos of a front crankshaft seal failing so I tried to replicate the advice from the videos. When I pull the dipstick, there is a bit of a...
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    When replacing the torque converter seal on a first gen automatic, do the axle shafts have to be removed from the transmission? I know the transmission has to be lowered and I order to do this do the dealerships/shops remove any of those?

    According to AllDataDiy tool EN-6086-5/6/8 is used to remove valve spring retainers, keepers, springs so as to have access to valve seal 9158057 that is removed with valve seal pliers EN-840. What are more common alternatives to these tools to R&R 9158057 (#7 on linked diagram) valve seals in...

    Hey guys I can't figure this one out. Went to check my oil the other week at work and it was barely on the stick. Now I drive about 500 miles a week so I try to check it every few days, especially since I just got it a couple weeks before that. Pulled it the shop a concluded the front main had...

  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey all, long time reader, new member. I recently completed this fix and I'm having a strange issue. Car is a 2012 cruze 1.4 rs. I'm getting 108" of water (vacuum) at the dipstick at idle, causing a chirping sound at the crank seal. I replaced the valve cover with what was suppose to be oem but...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi everyone, I have a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze and a couple weekends ago, I noticed a whistling noise at idle after the car had warmed up on my way back home after a trip out of town. Shortly after, the check engine light turned on and the car lost power - it felt like the turbo couldn't deliver...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hi Folks, Getting right to it, my 2014 LT RS (around 20, 000 mi) seems to have the classic chirping symptoms of a problem (dry?) with the (front?) crank shaft seal … more noticeable when the a/c is on, and continues chirping for 3-4 seconds after the engine is turned off. Pull oil...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    Crankshaft oil leak, seal has been replaced My 2012 1.4 is leaking oil yet again. The crankshaft seal was replaced, and 2 days later it was leaking from that same spot again. Yesterday I replaced the seal with the genuine GM part, replaced the balancer, and the bolt. The darn thing ran for...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, A few months ago (~109,000 miles) i found my turbo oil feed line to be leaking in the usual spot so i replaced it along with my water outlet and overflow hose while i was there. I also had an issue with my TBPS so i replaced the whole intake manifold with new throttle body + fuel...
  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I'm hoping that I can manage to do this myself without having to take to dealer or someone.. 2014 CTD, the seal around the driver's door has been damaged where the window closes by someone who smokes.. I guess cigarettes were flicked out a partial open window, and the seal is now all messed...
  13. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    I know the Cruze Automatic is a 6T40, and this is a 6T45, the higher torque big brother unit of the Cruze. All credit goes to the author Gary Ferraro and his shop, I simply found this on youtube. This shows how to replace the trans pump, filter, and seal the bell housing. I thought it was...
  14. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Hello fellow Cruze Diesel owners. I received the bad news that my Cruze Diesel with only 58k miles (and only approximately 2 years old) has a leaking rear main seal. After a recent oil change, I noticed small puddles of oil on my garage floor. I figured the dealer stripped the oil plug...
  15. Gen1 Service Issues
    Went in for my first synthetic oil change today. Wanted them to check the chirping which forums indicate is the tensioner. Dealer wanted to charge $99 to assess. I told them I wouldn't pay that as the noise was loud enough for anyone to diagnose. They tell me it is the tensioner, drive belt...
  16. General Discussion
    I have a 2013 Chevy Cruze that the drive axle seal on the transmission is leaking. I cannot find a video anywhere online that shows pulling the axle on a Cruze. Can you please help with instructions? Also the fluid leaking looks darker than trans fluid.
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    The Cruze is a LTZ RS 2014 auto with 24,200 miles. This will be the 3rd time the car has been serviced for the same issue twice with me and once with previous owner. Car is certified pre owned. coolant low again. The water pump and seal have been replaced.
  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    For a while now, I have been catching a whiff of coolant when stopped, and seeing steam rising from under the hood. I could never pinpoint where the leak was coming from, other than possibly from the passenger side of the engine compartment. Every time I popped the hood the steam would...
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I just want to thank Rob for telling me I have a camshaft position sensor leak without even looking at my engine....haha. I mention my crankshaft seal is leaking behind the pulley and he tells me to check the cam sensor. Well looking at it from the front it appears normal but upon closer...
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I found an oil leak at 100k miles I thought it might be a rear main seal leak. I took it into the dealer and it turned out it the oil pan gasket. Now at 237k miles I found the same oil leak I thought it might be an oil pan leak. I took it into the dealer and they are telling me its a rear...
