  1. Gen1 Service Issues

    So after swapping my K&N Filter out for an Injen, I noticed the tube that connects to the turbo/k&n intake has a crack/slice in it. I could replace it with another GM one, but does anyone have a place where I can get an aftermarket silicone one? I looked on eBay but can’t seem to find the right...

    So, I was changing my oil yesterday and accidentally bumped the tip of the return tube with a pair of channel locks and broke it off. Everything is intact except the little nipple on the end. I’ve scoured the internet and it appears the only fix is to replace the entire oil filter housing. What...

  14. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    I had a 6.5" bazooka in my truck, and loved it. Easy install and decent bass (for a 6.5" speaker). Hit very well inside the truck, and i'm at the age where I could careless if anyone can hear it outside of the cab. When I got my Cruze, I loved everything but the bass response. Having a...

As I was under the car, I noticed an oil leak on the underside of the plastic charge tube coming from the intercooler. Since the car was going in for...

  20. Gen1 Engine/Transmission Tutorials
    Made a quick vid while working on the car today. I got rid of the factory shorty vent tube that only goes a few inches off the reserve and added a 5ft hose. Smell has been greatly reduced but is still evident when the car first hits operating temp. Might be residual in the HVAC system, should...
