    Hi All: Forgive me if this has been asked, but I searched and could not find anything similar... 2013 Cruze 1.8L with just over 90000 miles. Tries to start but can't and it smells very rich. It was starting not long ago, but would idle rough and then act like it ran out of gas with no CEL...
  2. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Yesterday during a lengthy ride I stopped in a parking garage and noticed the familiar smell of brakes. I took a sniff around and found that both the rear brakes (4-wheel disc brakes on my Cruze) had the burning smell. I use my e-brake every time, but is it still possible that it could have been...

    I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere but my check engine light recently came on and the cabin immediately started smelling like chemicals.

    At 68k, I noticed a drop in coolant level and took it to dealer. I'll skip the part about the dealer being a jackass and telling me that the cooling system is not part of the power train, as if the car could last very long without it! Car was cold and it was a 15 minute drive to dealer...
