    Does anyone know if these are related and if so will a new thermostat fix both? I replaced the thermostat about 6 months ago and since it was cold weather here, I'm not sure if the heater/AC air from the vents was hot since then. I've noticed the hot air from the vents issue about a month ago...

    I have a 2018 Cruze and I noticed that the air coming from the vents is alot warmer than the outside temp. It feels as if its 15 degrees warmer than the outside temp. Is this normal?

    Ok, this seems to be a "hot" topic with the Chevy Cruze. But what is the fix for the smell that comes from the vents when the engine is hot - especially during the winter when the heat fan is blowing. A guy on Youtube places a long hose on what appears to be the overflow hole on the antifreeze...

    After some cold days, I imagine this plastic gear didn't enjoy the weather, and decided to break off. It was laying on my driver side floor board. My heater vents only blow out from the front and I think the feet. When putting it onto front windshield defrost, it only blows from the front vents...

    Hello, I have read some similar post on this, but did not find my answer. I have a 2011 chevy cruise 1.4L engine. When using the vehicle, its fine until we stop at lights or wait in traffic and when idling, there is a strong gas smell in the cabin of the vehicle. Last about 30 seconds when...

    Hi All, I am having a very strange issue with my heating in my 2012 Holden/Chevy Cruze Hatchback (1.6L engine RHD). The passenger side of the car is getting no/some heat. The first time I noticed, the heat dial was always in the red. The driver’s side is blowing almost uncomfortably hot air...

    I am getting a odor/fumes coming from the air vent. It only happen when my car comes to a stop and the fan kicks on. Since the fan kicks on at almost every stop, this happens often. I can actually see a fog of a sort coming from the vents as well. I have noticed there is a small coolant leak as...
  8. Gen1 Service Issues
    I noticed a few days ago that 2012 lt want pushing air out of the defrost. It only works on the front vents and floor vents. BIG PROBLEM to say the least. I've read where this topic has been covered previously but with resolutions that did not work for me. I disconnected the battery...
  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    So a week ago I went in to the auto shop to get my dashboard air vents checked out as no air was coming from them. Shop ended up fixing it, the part that was broken was called an air mode actuator. Took it home that night and the air mode selected was for the foot and dashboard vents. So air was...

    Hi all i can hear a clicking noise in my air vents when i turn my heater on. I can only hear it when its on low. Wondering if i need the dealer to fix it or if i can.

    I recently had the AC condenser replaced. I don't think this is related but?! We now have air blowing out the floor vents even when we have only the upper vents turned on. If we change it to floor only, the upper vents do turn off. There is also air blowing to the defroster when defrost is not...
  12. Gen1 Service Issues
    I just recently bought a 2012 Chevy Cruze from CarMax 6 months ago, with less than 40,000 miles on it. 3 weeks ago white smoke started to come to my ventilation when I start speeding and I realize that there was also some type of leak underneath my driver side inside the car. I took it to the...

    I searched for a similar thread but there wasn't one so I need the expertise of the forum. Getting a rather strong smell of gas when running the heater. Smell is coming from the vent while the fan is running on either heat/defog or cold. No smell with AC on or recirc on. I only smell it when the...

    Has anyone else encountered this problem and if not, I suggest you look again to see. as you can see the paint or whatever material is used to give these vents the appearance they have is peeling off. Very annoying. I kept seeing black flakes on my dash each time I cleaned it. I though maybe...
  15. Gen1 Interior Tutorials
    So I decided to paint the A/C Vents to match the rest of the interior and since no one else had a how to, or had done it I took the time to get some photo's. Here is how to do it. First disconnect the battery (for at least 10 minutes) you are working around an air bag. Open the passenger side...
  16. Gen1 Service Issues
    I have a 2012 Cruze, and I love this car… but…My problem is the ventilation system (I do not have the automatic type) and my recirculation seems to have NO effect anymore. I am fairly sure RECIRC is stuck always ON. The reasons for this are: defogging mode is very ineffective (because you want...
  17. Gen1 Powertrain
    Wondering if anyone here has had this happen or heard of this happening. When I take my Cruze to the, let's say theatre, when I come back out and start her up if I have left the climate controls on defrost I'll notice a strong smell of gasoline from the vents when I turn off defrost mode and...

    So I tried the Weather Tech window vent visors and wasn't really happy with them. Didn't like how they pushed against the frame when the window rolled all the way up. And at times the rears would catch the bottom of the vent when rolling back up. Decided to pull them off and go with these -...

    Hi, I am having this strange hissing/scraping noise comming from the daskboard vents when I turn off the engine. I can hear this all along after driving for 5-10 minutes but with the engine on, the sound is hard to notice. When I turn off the engine, it sounds like those old fridges, as if...
  20. Gen1 Service Issues
    I swear this is the last of my bad news to date. Another issue i can shed light on is one involving the air vents. About 4 months ago i was driving with the fans on level 3. I switched the vents from defrost to face+feet. It was at this time i heard a loud POP! Startled i pulled over to check...
