  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I did the PCV check valve kit a while ago. Lately have been noticing a burning oil smell, and had a buddy following me and I am getting oil smoke (blue) out of the exhaust, and have oil in my intake plumbing. 135k miles, no CEL. First thoughts are turbo seals, and second is possibly the...

    Hi guys, I'm considering buying a 2014 Cruze LS with only about 28k miles. The car looks and runs great, but upon further inspection, I noticed a small leak to the right of the engine, under what I think it's the coolant hose. It is not a very big leak, as it only accumulates in the area, not...
  3. Gen1 Service Issues
    tl;dr - My 5 year old Chevy Cruse w/ 65k highway miles and routine maintenance has a failing transmission, brake system and cooling system. Chevy essentially says to go fly a kite, you are on your on your own. After trying all the Chevrolet channels, I have decided to air my grievances. We...

    So im thinking about putting my car into D and....driving mostly for my commute. Other than the cam rollers or whatever not floating on oil and wearing a bit more, realistically what would i need to worry about utilizing the start/stop feature. My biggest fear, aside from wearing the engine...

    Hello all you experts, like the title says, I am looking at one tonight. I know a lot about cars/mechanics (do all my own work), but know nothing about the Chevy Cruze. I'm going to give this car the once over when I get my hands on it, and test drive it. What do I look for to make sure it's...

    Hello folks I am thinking about selling my cruze and was just wanting some possible answers. The two main problems I would like to hear from the GM rep here or someone else who has inside knowledge are the pcv and water pump issues. Before I make a decision and pull the trigger on a trade I...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey all I'm thinking of adjusting the waste gate to try and get just a little more boost from the turbo. I'm not looking to get 40 psi boost or anything crazy just a slight increase over the stock setting. Has anyone done this and would it be worth the effort or should I leave it alone...

  9. Cruze Parts
    If there is anyone willing to part with their VT turbo I would be interested in it. I have to buy a new turbo and don't really want to go back to stock, but since VT is no longer selling their turbo, I might have to. Unless, one of you fine individuals has one they are willing to part with...

    As much as I love my little CTD and it has served me well. I see that GMC and Chevy are releasing two more diesel lineups. The terrain and equinox. I'm seriously looking at the diesel terrain upon its release.

    Hey everyone, My name is Jeff, I am new, and I am old. I just bought a 13 1LT RS 1.4T. It has very low mileage, and is 100% bone stock. I spent most of the day today, searching the forum for info on the Flowmaster system #817565. There are plenty of threads, but most over 4 years old. Does...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, I just wanted to take a quick moment to tell everyone about BNR tuning, I have said it time and time again on the Facebook page but it has been brought to my attention that not everyone on the forums is on the Facebook page. So I decided to bring my thoughts here, because honestly...

    I just returned from a week away from home where I had to rent a car. I rented a 2015 Hyundai Elantra. Then I had to rent another car for just a day, a 2015 Cruze. The difference between the two was night and day. The Hyundai was noisy, creaky, cheap-feeling. The Cruze was almost as quiet...
