  1. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I've replaced intake, valve cover, oil feed line to turbo, oil return line, both coolant lines, and the turbo and exhaust itself. All this was done at the same time. Now it's blowing white smoke while driving down the road. Any suggestions? Anyone else have this problem? Losttttttttt
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone I'm new to the forum and there is a lot of good info on here but I'm stuck. I had a coolant tube replaced and then getting p2227 and p236 code. Took it to dealer and they said it needs a new turbo, so I had them replace turbo. Go to pick up and get it the car and check engine light...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi everyone. I have a quick question to ask all of you. I own a holden (chevy) cruze 2011 1.4 turbo, and I've recently had my turbo blow out. So I replaced it all, and the car had hardly any power, struggles to get it up an incline at 70kms. So I took it to a mechanic to get it diagnosed the...
  4. Gen1 Service Issues
    hi all, My 2016 chevy cruze had to have its turbo replaced at 63k miles, the cost was covered by 1/2 since it was just out of warrenty. I now am at 80k miles and the turbo needs replaced again. This seems very strange as its only 17k miles later and looking online, the turbo should not need...

  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey everyone, a quick question. I've done a lot of repairs and maintenance on my '11 LT with 145K miles, and one thing that is driving me crazy is the boost. It does get up and go, but if I'm trying to accelerate on an incline, I can feel the boost engage and then let off some, and it's a...
  9. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So, short story have replaced the turbo twice, the fan constantly runs at a high speed! And the motor always runs and feels hot but doesn’t show on the dash. Constantly having to put water in the reservoir: Never find any leaks anywhere. Well the smart pants I am after putting water in it...

    Hi, my name is Jordon. I had purchased a 2013 Chevy Cruze LT from a dealership in Dowagiac, MI. The dealership is CWimberly. When I first went to look at the car everything was topped off, ( coolant, oil blah blah). After a week of owning the car I realized the engine started to sound weird. I...
  11. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2013 Cruze Eco 1.4l with 93000 miles on it. Recently I noticed it began running rough on initial startup, but after about 15 seconds it would level out and run just fine. Well in the last 2 weeks its been getting significantly worse so I decided to take a look into solving the problem...
  12. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hey all, I just replaced the Turbo on my 2014 due to underboost as a result of a large crack in the turbo. After installation I ran it and now the fault codes are cleared but a steady stream of smoke comes from the joint between the turbo and precat. No excess smoke is coming from the tail pipe...
  13. General Discussion
    2019 Gen 2 owner here. Wondering if anyone else had any noticeable differences running premium in their engine. I’m not sure if it’s just my brain tricking me but I put premium in the car for the first time sense I bought it and my car seems to be running a lot smoother (other than chevy’s...

    Hi all! Back in July my turbo went, the exhaust turbine wheel broke completely off the shaft and the car had no power what so ever. The car had about 98K on it. I rebuilt the turbo with a new center section and the car definitely has power now, did an oil change with full synthetic, replaced...

    Project 1.8 Turbo (Turdbo) I'm back, after a long time not owning a Cruze. Bought a 2012 1.8 LS with manual trans in 2016. Got an itch for a turbo 4 cylinder project. Thought about going the Honda route, but 'Merica, uniqueness, and with these times, I thought "why not turbo what I have, my...
