    I have a 14 Cruze 2.0 TD. Bought it new. Currently have 369000 miles. Been a great car. Lately I have noticed a smell of burning oil inside the car, as well as out.

    Ok, this seems to be a "hot" topic with the Chevy Cruze. But what is the fix for the smell that comes from the vents when the engine is hot - especially during the winter when the heat fan is blowing. A guy on Youtube places a long hose on what appears to be the overflow hole on the antifreeze...

    When parked or stopped at lights, my air blows in a burnt oil smell, I figured out that it is my valve cover gasket, there is a leak. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to go about changing this myself, really can’t afford labor fees at some shop, TIA

    Have a 2016.5 Cruze with about 30K miles. Yesterday I drove it for 2 30-minute trips. At the beginning of the first trip there was a very strong burnt plastic smell coming into the cabin. It continued for the rest of the two trips, albeit not quite as strong as when we first started. I...

  11. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Seems in the past couple weeks I'm noticing diesel smell. I smell it when I walk around to the drivers door and I smelled it again today by the passenger rear (but it wasn't coming from the fuel door or under the hood). Have we found any common areas of fuel leaks? From my memory the fuel...

    Hey all, Figured I'd post it on here before I make an appointment. The past couple days I have been driving my car and have the heat on, obviously. When it is at a stop, or if it is remote started and let sit for a while, or rolling slowly, the stench of gas fills the interior. Any idea...
