  1. The Life of my '11 Cruze

    General Discussion
    Let me start off with saying I will not be purchasing nor recommending a Cruze ever again. When I bought my Cruze back in 2014, I should've done research but I was young & dumb and only cared about how "cool" it looked and how excited I was to show off my new car to all of my friends... if I...
  2. Drain coolant when changing thermostat housing?

    Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Is it necessary to drain the coolant before replacing the thermostat housing? Will it dump a lot of coolant if I don't? Have a 2015 with the 1.4l turbo and a check engine code for P0599 "Thermostat Heater Control Circuit High". No other symptoms or leaks evident. Thanks for your help.

    Hey everyone, I’ve recently changed my thermostat and housing on my 1.8l Cruze but it is currently leaking from the top hose that runs from the housing to the other side of the car behind the engine, I believe it is some kind of vacuum hose? I know it is broken at the piece that plugs into...

    Gen1 Powertrain
    So awhile back, my check engine light came on. I checked the codes and there was three that related to my thermostat. I talked to the auto store guys and they said its pretty common to replace them because they are originally made of plastic and tend to crack. I did some research on my own and...

    Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi Guys, The Cruze 2013 got Error Code 89 after Automatic Transmission System repaired. I also replaced the Thermostat housing, but the error did not resolve. The repairer tore off a number of wire cars and did not tell me anything. So I guess that the Thermostat sensor's cord has been cut...

    Gen1 Service Issues
    I have had my thermostat replaced twice in my Cruze, and it overheated today with some of the same symptoms it had before. I thought I had read of some recall for the thermostat. It seems unreasonable that I only have 55K miles and continue to have thermostat problems. Has anyone gotten a...

    General Discussion
    I had ended up getting a p0599 code and I changed out my temperature sensor and my thermostat and the codes went away. Well my car was still overheating so I went and took it to the dealership on Friday morning and ask about the special warranty for the water pump so they went ahead and said...

    Edit: forgot a comma in the topic. to be clear the thermostat was replaced, not the hose.

    I have a 2012 1.4t with 125k miles. Highway miles. Still gets 31mpg. I have both codes p0299 and p0599. Both popped up roughly the same times. So after some research, I see the p0599 is for a thermostat. I have a brand new spare in the box. I just wanted and verify that it couldn't be...
