shifting

  1. Gen1 1.8L
    I just replaced my engine with a used engine that has about 115,000 miles on it. I’ve replaced a bunch of sensors on the new engine. However, when I drive it the gears shift roughly and it won’t accelerate quickly. Also, it won’t shift into 6th gear. If I switch it to slap shift, it shifts a lot...

    Let me start off with saying I will not be purchasing nor recommending a Cruze ever again. When I bought my Cruze back in 2014, I should've done research but I was young & dumb and only cared about how "cool" it looked and how excited I was to show off my new car to all of my friends... if I...

    Hi I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze that will not shift into reverse or even slide into 5tj or 6th gear What I mean by that it will not even let me go all the way right to have the option go up to 5th or even down to 6th please help thank you

    I’ve got a 2014 1.4t 6m 50k Miles and recently it’s been worrying me because the shift from 1-2 or 2-1 or 1-R are less than smooth. It takes an abnormal amount of force and I can “feel” the gears mesh. I am running amsoil synchromesh and have been for a year and it always shifted like butter...

    I was driving home from work tonight, put gas in my 2017 Cruze Hatchback and about 5 miles later the check engine light came on and it was shifting rather hard on the highway between 60-70 mph. My assumption is the cold/low levels possibly of transmission fluid are to blame, but I'm here looking...

    I have a 2017 Cruze. The transmission seems uncertain whenever I have to accelerate hard. Feels like the sifting is trying to decide between gears. Not too bad, but just feels a little odd.... Could be a component of the transmission having more gears. Wondering if others are seeing...
  7. Gen1 1.8L
    Hey guys this is my first post on this site so forgive me if this is being posted in the wrong section. My 2013 Cruze LS recently had the Check Engine light come on while idling in park. I took the car to Auto Zone for a quick diag test and the guy was not much help. I got gas about 2 days ago...

    I have a 2014 Cruze ls I am having this issue where going from 2nd to 1st gear at a stop results in a hard downshift. Also I am having jerky acceleration. The biggest question I have is when I’m at a stop w/ the ac on the rpms go down to 1000 for about 5seconds then down to 800 so it hangs for a...
  9. Gen1 1.8L
    So driving around the other day I went to grab 5th gear and it was like I was hitting the far right side of the throw for my shifter. So no 5th and 6th gear. Got home and popped off the grey shift linkage bushing in the engine compartment. With the linkage disconnected the shifter had full...

    I have a 2012 Eco that this morning my wife was driving the kids to school in. She went to shift into 2nd and it would not accelerate and now it wont accelerate in any gear. It won't even move. It will however stop itself from rolling backwards on a GENTLE slope when the clutch is let out but it...
  11. Gen1 Powertrain
    my 2016 Gen 1 LT Cruze - has a hard shift (almost like a slip) every time it hits second and third for the first time. I have let the car warmup too - this is during the summer too. I have tried different driving styles too - if I am smooth and gental it still does it. If I hammer it and go...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Just curious when you drive your automatic cruze in sport mode do you let off the gas before you shift into the next gear or do you just shift right into it without letting off? I always let my foot off the gas when I do cause I naturally do it in a manual transmission but my buddy told me it...

    The Gen1 Cruze clutch has been reported as feeling numb. Furthermore, the car suffers from shift grinding, inconsistent shifting, and notchy/hard shifting, especially during spirited driving and rapid shifting. This thread will address these symptoms with solutions for addressing the root cause...
  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey Everyone, I recently purchased a 2011 Cruze with the manual 6 speed transmission. The car has 96k on the clock. The previous owner told me when the car warmed up it was harder to shift. I took it on a test drive and didn't notice any issues shifting through the gears after running it down...

    Hi I have a 2013 Chevy Cruze bought in September 2017 car has no issues but at times it shifts weird. It is an automatic and sometimes not always it like jumps up in rpms and looses power for a brief second only ehen going between 3rd and 4th gear. Just curious if anyone here would have any idea...
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Have a 2011 Eco 1.4 Turbo. M/T. When it is cold it shifts great. but after a while of driving and it warms up, then it is nearly impossible to shift into 5th or 6th. Also shifting into 3rd sometimes you have to slam the shifter into reverse and then to 3rd to get it to go. Never had this...
  17. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi All I'm having an intermittent problem problem with the automatic transmission shifting on my 2014 diesel Cruze. When the car is warmed up, and usually after a highway drive, I noticed it shifts oddly when decreasing speed as if it downshifts too soon. When I come to a stop and then...

    I bought my cruze brand new in 2011. It's been a great car, has about 150,000 miles on it. Lately we've noticed a small issue during the shifting process. Last night it decided to stop shifting. It'll shift out of park into Drive/1st gear but won't shift any higher and it won't shift into...
  19. Gen1 Powertrain
    i've looked through a couple of pages in this section about transmission issues but most or all seem to be directed at manual transmissions having issues. the thing i'm seeing is when the 2011 1.4L automatic is left in auto mode the trans shifts fairly reasonably 1-2 but 2-3 it holds for longer...

    After taking off the CDV on my Cruze, it actually shifts worse than when it was on. Each gear doesn't go in smoothly without feeling a little 'notchy' except 5th, 6th and reverse gears. Is this normal? :unsure:
