  1. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    So just brought my car home from getting the transmission serviced and have a few concerns. The oil drained out of the trans was very dark and thick. The car only has 54,xxx on the clock with an automatic. I’m not having any issues that I am aware of as the vehicle is new to me. I’m just...
  2. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    My car is coming up on 90k miles and the dealer recommends that I get a trans flush. I've heard mixed feelings about having one done. I have a 2014 and it seems to be running fine. What is everyone else's opinion on this?
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I haven't been able to find any topics discussing this. I was wanting to check the fluid level in my manual transmission because it has been hard to shift in gears 1-3 at lower speeds. I'm running amsoil 75-90 transaxel and Mt fluid that is about 1.5 yrs old. I just can't remember if...

    Up for sale is a freshly done, never installed urethane filled rear trans mount. This thing started off as a low mileage used mount and I bought a kit of liquid urethane to fill it up. This was supposed to be a cheaper alternative to a TTR mount and provide a more forgiving feel since its a...

  6. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi, I have a 2018 Cruze "pepperdust" HB, diesel, 6-sp manual... and love it! Just wanted to see if anyone has the diesel Equinox and if anyone has thought of swapping the manual trans into the Equinox. I think it would be an awesome AWD with a 6-sp manual trans. any thoughts?

    So my cruze is shifting weird into 3rd gear and makes a weird whining noise in that gear only. The rpms shoot up and drop down real quick going into 3rd. It only does this after car is hot after I've been driving for a while. It shifts perfectly fine when it's cold. The issue happens whether...

    Alright, so my 2011 6spd MT has 165,000 miles on it. Shifted fine with no issues at all. I figured I would do some preventative maintenance and change the fluid out. After a few forum searches it seemed like Amsoil Synchromesh was the ticket. So I drained the old fluid and put Amsoil in. Now the...

    2012 1.4l turbo engine 1LT trim. 53,000 total miles. Owners Manual says change trans fluid at 45,000 (severe). Should I change it? I bought it with 30000, and only put 23,000 miles since I bought it in march 2013. I do drive a little harder and with acceleration. Due to years, 6+, should I...

    So driving around the other day I went to grab 5th gear and it was like I was hitting the far right side of the throw for my shifter. So no 5th and 6th gear. Got home and popped off the grey shift linkage bushing in the engine compartment. With the linkage disconnected the shifter had full...

    Well, after seeing this being confirmed, I have scratched any thoughts about buying one again in the future. I am a die-hard manual driver. I had thought about looking at the Hatchback version. Nothing either to look at that would be comparable at Ford or FCA. VW and Asian are the only options.

  17. Gen1 Service Issues
    We bought our Cruze new in 2013. Been fairly happy with it, with just over 48,000 miles. The only problem we have had is the apparently common grinding when shifting from first to second under hard acceleration. After that experience I researched it and found on this site that they all do it...

    I've got a 2012 Cruze LT/RS with the 6 speed manual, for some reason when it's cold you can barely get it into 1st or 2nd and third will grind unless you're careful, all other gears shift like butter. If it's a hot day or when the car warms up I don't have this problem. I just bled the clutch...

    I believe I have a leak on my transmission fluid lines going into the radiator. I am not sure completely so I am attaching pictures to see if anyone has had a similar issue and can help me identify the problem. Any input will be greatly appreciated. If this is a transmission line leak, then what...
