  1. Gen1 1.8L
    On my 2012 Chevy Cruze LS, One of my Exhaust Manifold Heat shield bolts has rattled out. The flanges on the bottom have rusted and snapped off (Not sure who at GM though two little dinky flanges were a good idea) so my heat shield is being held by only one bolt. Can any one tell me the bolt...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    can you take off the turbo heat shield on these cruzes and leave them off? I would like to remove the heat shield forever if someone has done it before on these cruzes because it makes it a ot easier to look under the valve cover for leaks if there is one

    Hi All! Was doing an oil change on my 13' cruze LT today and realized that there really isnt a splash shield covering the front/center part of the engine. Is there a part for this? From googling certain phases I stumbled across these two... are either of them correct...

    Sounds like we have a heat shield rattle (typical thin metal ringing noise) going on somewhere in the front half of the vehicle - can't tell if its on/near the engine, or the exhaust system. I'm going to get the car on a lift to do the trans fluid here soon (hopefully), so I'm going to have a...

    Want better fuel economy, a cleaner engine bay, reduced road noise, and better highway stability? This thread is for you! Back in 2011 and 2012, the Cruze and the Verano both used the same engine shield. It was a great design. Then, the NHTSA started investigating engine fires. Apparently...

    Hello y'all. I apologize if this is not in the right area but I am looking for some help with the heat shield on my friend's 2012 Cruze LT. I was checking something under the hood and realized that her heat shield was basically laying on top of the manifold unattached. I have found the right...
  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey guys, I will tackle it this Wed, just curious if anyone knows. Behind my exhaust manifold shield I have a tiny oil leak at the motor and it is leaking on my cat, burning up. The oil is NOT coming from the valve cover . I will be taking the shield off this Wed but what could be back there...

    I have searched this forum, google, and youtuble. I cannot find anywhere that says where and how to put on the A/C condenser shield on any year of Cruze let alone my 2012 1.4t. the GM part number 95927464 I know people have bought them but didn't say where they "snap" on? Any help would be...

    About a month ago we had the transmission replaced for an output shaft bearing whine under warranty. I changed my oil for the first time after that and find out they cut my engine shield all to pieces at that time. We had refused to have it done numerous times at that dealership and had them...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was thinking about building or buying an intake, so I decided to modify the stock airbox and see what happens. The goal was to increase the turbo noise and maybe get a little better throttle response. I attached dropbox pictures because I kept getting upload errors...

    Where do I buy the plastic splash shield for a 2012 cruze? GM cut a big ass hole in mine when they did the recall and ever since then my shield started falling off piece by piece and now there's no plastic left from the back of the engine all the way up to my fog lights. It's causing my car to...

    The interest was sparked up in my previous thread about the recent Aero kit I got from Aero Flow Dynamics, about having them make a custom engine shield to replace our hacked up stock one. However, at this current point in time they want to know how interested the Cruze community would be in...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I don't want this thread to be another splash shield recall and how they cut it. Is there anyone in a GM shop, that knows if a customer can voluntarily opt out of a recall and not have it done? I would like the Brake Switch recall performed, and I appear to have a leaky water pump. I've added...

    All started by receiving yet another recall from my dealer, thought it was a dead issue about having my shield butchered. Referred me to customer assistance, had no idea I would be on the phone for well over an hour. Same old stuff, but wish I was speaking to an attorney and the engineering...

    Are there any cons to driving around with out the turbo manifold heat shield on? Jw, I just took mine off so the turbo is more visable. Any thoughts?

    I purchased a used 2011 Cruze LT, 32,215 in October of 2012. Recently the A/C started to blow warm air. Took it to dealership (Classic Chevrolet, Grapevine, TX) and they discovered a "hole in the condenser". Parts: $247.45/Freon: $31.98/Labor: $495.60. I joined this forum in order to see if...

    Title says it all, wanted to know if the HS helps keep dirt and such off the filter or it only blocks water. If it does, would it hold enough to cause flow issues with the intake? Id like to know so i dont have to go through the pain in the ass that is taking off the bumper just to clean the...
