  3. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey everyone, So i'm somewhat decent with the electronics aspect in cars, but the engine has always been a foreign concept to me. I'm around 51K miles now and looking to do a tuneup. I dont want to go to a shop empty handed and just have them do a tune up with generic parts. I am willing to...

    The oil change is supposed to include an inspection and coolant top off. Once again I was hit with lack luster service and my coolant wasn't top off, despite this vehicle always somehow losing coolant in the various ways mentioned here on Cruzetalk. Anyway, is this normal for this to be skipped...

    Asking GM Reps here if a new Cruze owner wishes can we get a Center Top Dash compartment like I had in my '11. All that is there now is a screen. As has been discussed in another thread a screen is worthless. If so what are the part numbers for #1 Compartment with Lid, different number for...

  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've been getting burned fluid smell through the vents since its been cold and noticed some coolant on top of the trans near shifter cable. I thought it may have been left there since water pump r&r or turbo r&r as the have both been replaced in the last 20,000 miles. So I blased it clean with...

    Parting out my car so I can trade in. CX Racing intercooler: $250 shipped. (no intake, just everything for intercooler) also labeled and somewhat together so it should be easily installed since they give you no instructions. Barely used Injen intake: $110 shipped. Filter is their dry flow...

    I got this drill pump at Home Depot for $10.98, and it even came with the hoses for sucking that old oil out via the dipstick tube. I hooked it up to my electric drill and had my oil removed in a matter of a couple minutes. The directions specifically say it can be used for water and oil...

  12. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Are there any tricks you guys are using while topping off the DEF in your cars? It looks like the DEF from GM comes in a 1 gallon jug, that I'm guessing would be fairly easy to spill in the trunk, even while using a funnel. There are no truck stops around me that have DEF available from a...

    Does anyone else have this happening in their engine bay? My engine bay is clean and like new with the exception of this. I can't figure out if this is rust or not. how can I remove this? It should be solid black.

    Has anyone performed a top engine cleaning service, you know the ones that are usually 3 step kits which cleans the throttle body, intake system via a vacuum line and then fuel system? I mean I regularly use the techron every 3000 miles as recommended by the manual. I also recall seeing in the...

    So I'm sitting here thinking about what I'd like to do to my cruze and nothing is coming to mind. This got me thinking, what's your top 5 list for mods for your cruze?
  16. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I was reading that Top Tier gas is better for your car in the long run but how do i find a station near me (columbia SC) that is a Top Tier station and is it really worth going to them over filling up wherever is cheapest (if its even more expensive). I hear some people say that they go buy...

  18. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have a 13 rs with the 1.4 and the trifecta tune. I was on a highway today and wanted to see what this thing can do and was surprised when I hit 112 and I got a message on the cluster about that being the top speed. Y wouldn't the trifecta tune turn this off?
  19. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    The waterpump was replaced @ 35564 and it now has 47k on the car. there are puddles of coolant on the little notches on top of the transmission and cannot see any runs or leaks anywhere top side back or bottom of motor. i have a 2011 LT with the automatic trans. Any ideas??
  20. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Does anyone know what the top speed is on the cruze 1.4? I had mine up to 127 on the hy in the flat and it seemed like it still had a little bit more but I ran out of road
