    Items needed Psi gauge at least 20 psi 1/4” hose Air hose connector to air supply To test for boost leaks you will need a psi gauge that will test at least 20 psi and that you can read accurately. I used a “T” junction and 1/4” hose, and one of the 1/4 inch hose I slipped over the connective...
  2. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    For the next couple weeks I'll be testing my auto stop / start bypass that would cost you a couple bucks in parts and a couple hours to install. It will require you to press a button each time you start the car. If it works flawlessly for me for the next few weeks I'll write up a brief how to...

  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    So i took my wife's Cruze in to figure out why the AC isn't working and this is what we found: 1: We vacuumed out the system then charged it back up again. Couldn't see or hear any leaks of any sort even though the system only had about .3 psi in the system when i brought it in. 2: When we...

  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This is probably going to be more confusing than it needs to be! I've been doing some routine maintenance on my son's 2013 Eco. During cooling system flushing, I noticed that the fan never came on. Then I noticed that the fan doesn't start when the AC is switched on. (It might need a little...

    My driver side heater wont work, I press the button and it flashes for a few seconds and then just turns off. Car's previous owner said he just never bothered replacing it or taking it in, so now I have to figure out which one is bad. From what I can tell, theres a seat and backrest element, one...

    Getting a code for ABS malfunction referring to the left front wheel. Disconnected the sensor to check the resistance and got nothing, as in infinite resistance. Assuming the sensor is bad since they should have some resistance but checking here to make sure before getting a replacement.

    Look what I found in Blythe Ca over the weekend. They had 4 other cars that I couldn't get pics of and was a SUV that had a canvas cover over it as a added protection. Just thought everyone would like to see these pics.
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
