  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    True or False? New turbocharger requires new intake manifold Based on what I've read on this forum, the turbocharger and intake manifold both go bad eventually and will need to be replaced. Am I reading too much into related threads? I've had the P0299 code and my mechanic days the...

    But first, a little back story. From a post I made on April 30th... For anyone who has read the book, or seen the movie, you would know that "Christine" has a very big jealous streak. In fact, she tries to kill anyone who would try to get rid of her or get between her and her owner. I think...

    Not directly related to the Cruze... I don't think. But I heard this interesting news piece yesterday, about automobile makers now using simulated engine noises, to both enhance the drivers experience. Apparently with cars becoming increasingly quieter for a variety of reasons, auto makers are...
  4. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    Ordered some goodyear ultra grip ice wrt's for the diesel and my wife's car today from tirerack.com. Will be mounting/balancing them by hand when they get in. Excited to try a true snow for the first time and will give my "lifetime all-season driver" opinion later this winter. FYI, Erie, PA had...
  5. Titan Synthetics
    The intention of this thread is to raise awareness on the benefits of true synthetic oils, and to attempt to some degree to teach a bit of history, a bit of background, and a bit technical information regarding lubrication for those who would like to expand their knowledge without spending as...

    New powerplant rejuvenates Chev Cruze | The Citizen Sounds like the 1.4 has reached the country but is it a move to dump the engine? No wonder there are some noise on the road with every one revving over 4000rpm to get a "gentle push from the turbo", pity they did not get the 1.6 which is more...

  9. Gen1 Powertrain
    With a Trifecta tune to remove the neutral 4000 RPM limit, you get to about 45 or so , drop to neutral, floor it to 6000-6500 and without lifting your foot put it into drive. If you did it right your needle will bounce like you're playing Need For Speed! *Yay totally worth it just for that and...

    Has anyone used this true Metallic spray yet and/or got on pics (preferably on a Black granite or cyber grey)? How many cans/coats of glossifier? I looks like it would match the black granite perfectly. Thanks guys. Sent from AutoGuide.com Free App
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I converter my Cruze to a TRUE flex fuel car today. I installed the 42lbs/hr Bosch "green giant" injector (stock are 24lbs/hr) along with an actual flex fuel sensor and tuned my ECM with EFILive, so I now have an actual flex fuel Cruze!! :D Can run what ever fuel or mix I want and the ECM...
  12. Gen1 1.8L
    Long story short, I've had the Injen intake for a year and a half now, and I've always payed in someway whether it be SRI or CAI with losing power. First it was with the SRI that would suck in hot air from the engine bay, and then it was my CAI that would bog down like crazy in hot weather with...

  14. General Discussion
    So as some of you guys know, I've been on this forum for a while but unfortunately am still not a Cruze owner. Though I wish I could have had a Cruze already, I'm really glad I will have the chance to purchase a more refined 2013 Cruze hopefully here in the next few months. With that being...
  15. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I was just wondering, for those of you that have worked on the accessory side of the engine, and either removed motor mount, or the water pump, do you need to support the engine to remove the serpentine belt? It appears based on procedures you do, but I was wondering if there's any 1.4L...
