  2. Gen1 Service Issues
    First, I want to thank anybody that takes the time to give me your advice. Second, I got to say this car has been a complete lemon the entire time we've owned it. If something came out of this discussion that magically helped me solve all the problems that this car has had it would be a ****...

  4. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Or, what values do others see if anyone is measuring this on their Scangauge or other gauge? Still trying to figure out why my car is so sooty and performance isn't as consistent as it used to be (see my frequent regen thread for that drama), so I'm trying to learn about various parameters and...

    I took my fiance's 2.0 diesel to my guy to get a quote on replacing the timing belt. He told me while we're there you may as well replace the water pump along with the pulley and tensioner. we looked all over ebay and different websites and we cannot find the parts outside of the...
  6. Gen1 Service Issues
    So I have a 2014 ls 1.8l manual that is due for a timing belt. I have the belt kit but my question is can you use a standard dual overhead cam lock kit or do you have to use the special tool? And if the special tool is a must then where can I find one?
  7. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello, Yesterday my 2014 Cruze LS, 6sp Manual hit 100,000 miles. Usually I hit this mark under 4 years, but it took 4.5 years this time. Anyway, now everytime I start the car I get a "replace the timing belt" message. I am sure this is recommended and this is something built in, but does...
  8. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    Does anyone have a set of timing tools for a 1st gen diesel laying around that you would be willing to sell or loan out to me to do my timing belt? My water pump went out and is leaking so I’m going to just go ahead and replace the belt and tensioners while I’m in there. Honestly I’m quite...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    After pressure testing my intake. I finally found the exact spot I had the oil leak on the front back side of engine. The timing chain cover is leaking by the alternator. I found a manual in doing this but I was wondering if anyone had done this. Do you actually require the special tools for...

  12. Gen1 Diesel Technical Discussion
    So 100k miles have come and gone on my 14 Cruze Diesel and now driving with the message alerting me to service the timing belt. The manual recommends replacement at 97,500mi, message comes on at 100k miles and I could have sworn I read somewhere something about 120k miles. I have checked mine...

  14. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi all, I'm so sorry to beat a dead horse but I'm still seeing my Cruze pull timing going up slight inclines on the highway (on torque app and the feeling the car shudder a bit). ~120km/hr, 6th gear, about 17C (so not warm) and it's driving me nuts not being able to figure it out. Boost reads...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I'm about 5000 miles from rolling over 100k and I keep hearing that I'll get a 'change timing belt' alarm when I do. But I'm just wondering if anyone has gone longer and not experienced any problems? or has had a failure because they went longer? I have only experienced one timing belt failure...

    So about 3,000 miles overdue on timing belt change for my 2015 Cruze. Have the parts and plan to take care of it this weekend. Where can I find a diagram and any general info I would need. Just to make things easier. Also should I change out the water pump? I got the kit to change just the belt...
  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just reached 100k miles in my 2015 Cruze LS and a message came up on the screen behind the steering wheel that says to replace the timing belt. Is this something that needs to be replaced immediately, or can I wait a while? Also, can I just replace JUST the belt, or are there other pieces that...

    Cruze/Sonic 1.4L Turbo LUV/LUJ Timing Adjustment Overview: There's a surprising lack of articles on this subject, so I'm writing an article on how to adjust timing on the 1.4L Turbo. This will need to be done any time you have to remove a cam, a sprocket, or the timing chain for any reason...
