  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, I have been expericing some noise coming from the car, but honestly I have no clue where the noise is coming from. When car is on you can hear it especially when accelerating the noise builds up. Can someone please pinpoint me to where exactly the noise is coming from and what I need to do...

    Recently installed an aftermarket trunk release button, and now I have zero interior dome or courtesy lights. The first wire I tapped into didn't seem to have power, so I wrapped tape around it and moved to a different one. Following instructions like these...
  3. Gen1 1.8L
    Here's a short video of my cruze's temp gauge. This is the very first time the ignition is switched on. Any ideas what could cause this? When I last ran the car the previous night the temp was stuck in the red, the fan was blowing but the car ran fine once it had started but the warning bleeper...
  4. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So, I have a 2013 Cruze LT with the 1.4 turbo. 125, 000 kilometres(Canada) later I got the common burnt oil smell in the cabin. I looked at the motor and saw a leaking water pump, AND a leaking valve cover gasket. I decided to replace the valve cover gasket first and drive it for a bit. Sure...
  5. Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I have a 2014 Cruze Eco and I’ve noticed that it’s losing oil somehow. I know that it is not leaking oil because I’ve never seen as much as a drop of oil on the ground where I park everyday, so it must be burning oil. The only time I notice any blue smoke coming out the tailpipe is occasionally...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    Have had intermittent issues with the starter for two years. Replaced two that tested OK on the bench.o.. still sometimes acted up with a no crank. Tried resetting interlock system, tried to crank in neutral, checked for negative ground cable...nothing..eventually problem randomly fixed...
  7. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze Eco, automatic with 99,000 miles on it. I have posted before about an engine problem that I was having. After six months of terrifying driving, my engine was finally fixed late February. The head mechanic at the dealership was shocked when I pulled in and the engine...
  8. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi, I am new here and new to Diesels. We had this Cruze for about a year without issue until my wife could not keep her car running Monday AM. She filled up on the way home Friday drove 20 miles home, parked the car for the weekend and found that it will start up run for a second or two and...

    After many months of this issue we may have it solved. It all started over 8 months ago. The radio would reboot and sometimes along with it the power steering went out, (Its electronic) and many times the service stability light would come on. At times breaking as I left my driveway correlated...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    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...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    My ECO MT has continued to drop coolant. Fortunately I had florescent dye in the coolant tank and this dye dries a sickly orange color. I had this dried dye all over the tank vent channel. When I took my car in for no A/C, I mentioned that my tank/pressure cap was excessively venting and I had...
  12. General Discussion
    Hi, If I do decide on the Cruze, could I assume that ALL the terrible automatic transmissions problems that seem to have plagued 2011, 2012 and even some 2013, are all now solved? Have the GM engine engineers finally corrected ALL the issues? The scary part is if you google "Chevy Cruze...
  13. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    For those who checked the available Ultra Racing bars for our cars, there was one, the RT2-1304, that was never shown installed in a Picture. Even sites that sell that bar are not even sure where it goes, they naming it differently... Well, those who said it was a "Rear Frame brace" are correct...

    The 2011 Cruze Eco has 3 seperate vents, 2 built into the tank and one on the fuel pump module. I could not get more that 9 gallons in the tank without the auto shut-off clicking and then fighting to get the other 3 gallons that the DIC would show I used. The vents are float type which shut off...
  15. Gen1 Powertrain
    I thought I would start a new thread so the resolution isn't buried. I am noticing many more people coming forward with the same annoying problem. You will know if you have it! Just feel your steering wheel or even brake pedal at idle or in park when hot (AC Off!). Its that awesome repetative...
