  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    As the title suggests, I'm at 110,000 miles in my 2013 1.8L. I've had the timing belt replacement service message since 100k but still haven't replaced it. I figured that I should wait until it's 7° outside with 14 inches of snow before I do the job 🙄. Truthfully, it's been a financial worry...

  3. Gen1 1.8L
    I was having an issue the car not turning over when it got warm after driving for a few. No CEL would come on. I replaced sensors and canisters and still happened. I just replaced the timing belt hoping this would help as it was due to be changed 25k ago. When i was setting TDC the old belt...

    Finally hit the 100k timing belt service indicator on my 2014. Checked out the YouTube videos, and since it seemed rather easy to do I figured I'd give it a go, and do the water pump/idler/tensioner while I was at it. (kit from iDParts) After removing the timing belt covers, with the old belt...

    About a year ago we replaced out timing belt on our 2013 Cruze. Recently we replaced the water pump. After my ac would not work and we changed a fuse and it worked again just doesn’t work on the circulation button? Now I have a check engine light with 14 different codes and my brother is...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    So long story short, I replaced my timing belt. After replacing it I was sure I had it on properly, so I ran the car, but to no prevail. It wouldn't start unless I would pump the gas pedal. After doing so it would start up, but then rough idle and stall. After a year of it not working, I had a...
  7. Gen1 1.8L
    I have a 2012 Cruze LS that just topped 100k miles, and I got the DIC message saying to replace the timing belt. Having had one fail on me in the past, this triggered me pretty bad haha. I finished driving it home (another 20 miles), and it's been sitting in front of my house since Monday. My...

    I recently had my serpentine belt changed on my 2014 Cruze with 41,000 miles. Now I have antifreeze dripping in that area under the belt. Any ideas could they have not tightened something?

    1st, Car overheated close to home. Just 3-4 miles away. Wife's car, she said she got some warnings that made her stop. She watched the temp needle and limped it home, stopping a few times and letting it cool off. Coolant reservoir was empty. I had replaced fluid a little here and there and...
  12. Gen1 1.8L
    So I bought my 2012 Cruze used at 90k miles and was told by the owner it was a 1.8L. I bought the Gates TCK338 complete timing belt kit in anticipation of the change at 100k, but wouldn’t you know it I bought a 1.4L turbo. I’m sure it’s happened to everyone... Anyway, by the time I found this...

  14. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    I recently hit 100K miles on my 2014 Cruze Diesel and called my dealer to have the timing belt replaced. After several weeks two different dealers informed me that there were only 2 timing belts available and they were at dealers in CA. Calls to the CA dealers went unanswered and my dealer could...
