    My cruze started surging tonight going down the road. It wouldn't run much over 45. When accelerating, it will do it. It's always had a little but of a surge when stopped at red lights at an idle, but it never affected anything and it was never consistent. The CEL came on last Saturday...
  2. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    My Cruze has been awesome in its first 10k miles but lately has developed some weird behavior. In the last 700 or so miles its done five regens, or what I assume are regens. In each case when I come to a stop at a light or elsewhere the idle surges very noticeably. This always coincides with the...
  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    This started shortly after I took my Cruze in for the N1 sensor. While it was in for service I had them do an oil change and the fuel filter change. Shortly after the car began to surge heavily at low throttle. If I accelerate it goes away but returns slightly when I even out the throttle. It...

    Welp, another issue has surfaced yesterday. The surging here only happens when the engine is cold, it will smooth out a bit at 3200-3800k RPM, but as soon as you get back on it, it does the same thing. It's pretty bad, it jolts you around in the seat. I talked about this before and it was...

I let it warm up before i took off (playing with raido) i have a habbit of letting it warm up a little before i...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi guys, I started having issues with my idle RPM jumping from 720 to 650 and back to 700 every 2 seconds as seen on Torque App, but only when stopped, with the AT in D, and only when the engine is warmed up (so the Neutral Idle get's engaged). I have no error codes and no other problems that I...
  7. Gen2 Service Issues
    I've noticed the past couple days when driving at slower speeds, less than 20 mph, the A/C fan speed starts fluctuating up and down, anyone else notice this with their Gen 2? It may have been doing it prior, but I just noticed it because I've been running it at higher fan speeds because it's...

    I have a 2012 1.4 Turbo cruze. I got it from a dealership with 90K miles on it and it was great. I got to 100k miles and started getting lean codes and other air intake related codes. I found the PCV valve in the valve cover to be bad, I replaced it, and car did great! I got to 108,500 miles and...
  9. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Has anyone else noticed a slight engine surging during a regen? I noticed it a couple of years ago, but it would only happen once in a while, and usually only when the car was regenning at slow speeds (20-35 mph) and low RPM. If I was very lightly accelerating or maintaining a slow speed, such...
  10. Gen1 Powertrain
    I have a 2015 cruze, Manual transmission, 4500 KM's, trifecta tuned, K & N filter. I get to a red light, A\C on, the idle gets slightly rough, Revs start surging up and down like the car is going to die but does not. I give it a slight rev and idle smooths out, but then gets raspy again. As...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    My cruze is running like garbage even with a brand new transmission and clutch disc. At times there will be an abundance of power when accelerating it and other times it will have no power at all. Car is a 2011 chevrolet cruze eco. Here are the symptoms: Starting out in first gear the car...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So my 2012 Eco Cruze is doing the common surging/jerking under acceleration. If I let it idle for a long time then the idle will jump around on me. It has done this ever since I've owned it. The symptoms get A LOT better when I am running 93 octane, but they don't totally go away. The car is...
  13. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've had this problem since October - Often the engine is cold (below about 130-140 degrees and not all the time), my engine surges at idle kinda bad. It sounds like an idling diesel and shakes the car especially sitting in gear. But it's not the automatically going in to neutral because it does...

    12 Cruze LT with 6spd, 56K miles. Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes. This has happened a half dozen times or so now. While the car is idling in neutral, not moving, foot on the break, both the digital and analog speedometers will jump, thus increasing the radio...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I've noticed since I got it whenever my car is warmed up to operating temperature, the 2-3 shift (auto) is jerky. The revs don't shoot up or anything it just kinda feels like what I assume sport mode in a tuned cruze would feel like, though mines stock. And it's only the 2-3 shift under light...
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    I get an intermittent surging feeling in my brake pedal. I can see the surge in the idle as well. Idle fluctuates about 100 rpms and I can feel it in the brake pedal. I have a read about a neutral shifting feature for efficiency but my car is manual. When I turn on the AC the and then turn...
  17. Gen1 1.8L
    My Cruze is 13 months old and has 4300 miles on it. I noticed a surging/rocking sensation with the brake applied and very slowly creeping forward,if the brake is fully released while stopped it is still slightly felt,if put into reverse it does not do this.It's very annoying.I took my car to the...
  18. Gen1 Powertrain
    Since the cooler weather I noticed a change in our 2013 Cruze LS 1.8 Auto,the weather may or may not contribute.If I can explain; When stopped in traffic and the brake is lightly released to creep forward the car starts rocking or the sensation of someone lightly rear ending the car over and...
  19. General Discussion
    I just traded my 2011 Ls in for a new Eco at. When I test drove it everything seemed fine but it was rush hr traffic so couldn't pay much attention to the car. Drove it home tonight and noticed slight surges a little over a sec apart. I found a couple similar threads but most of them were...
