  1. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    So my key fob took a dump on me. Made the terrible mistake of buying one off amazon. So I thought I would just take the key part off and just use it and lock\unlock the door with the key. Problem is that the alarm system goes off when I open the door.....each time. So, until I can sort out the...
  2. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hi I have a late 2011 1.6 petrol auto in the UK. The MPG has always been pretty terrible - 18mpg around town, maybe 28mpg at best on a run. The car is drivensensibly and never thrashed. The downstream O2 sensor is faulty (fault codereader) but as I understand it, this won’t affect the mpg...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    After putting a ton of work into the cruze I brought back from the dead, my new water pump and gasket is leaking after just 50 or so miles (about a week). I used the AISIN WPK819 kit off rockauto. I used copper rtv on both sides when I saw the original metal gasket had it on it. The gasket I got...

    I drive a 2014 2LT. My A/C problems began suddenly last week for no apparent reason. When I start and drive my Cruze from a cold engine, the air blows super-cold as it did before the problem began. Once I have been driving 5 to 6 minutes, the air suddenly blows very hot and I notice a strong...
  5. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hey guys. I've done extensive research up to this point but not sure what to do at this point... so looking for advice. I have a 2011 eco automatic with 86000 miles. I bought the car brand new. About 3 weeks ago, the car overheated on my way home from work. Turned out to be a bad thermostat and...
  6. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello all new here, so I have a 13 Cruze that had a destroyed engine and manual tranny that someone pulled behind a Rv while in first gear. Anyhow so I installed the new used engine and transmission and switched most items from the old engine that were still good. Now the car turns over but no...
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hoping someone can suggest a good idea here. As posted in another forum here I have had the pcv valve replaced twice already and when it failed again a third time I swapped it myself. Now I followed all instructions and was HAND tightening the screws before i even got to put on the torque...
  8. Gen1 Audio & Electronics
    So, I recently decided to try and save a few bucks and change my cabin air filter myself. This change was looong overdue, as it's a 2011 cruze LT, with what I'm assuming is the original filter. It was really clogged with leaves and dust, and I think when I took it out some debris may have fallen...

    Called the dealer I've been working with for the last 9 months of my ownership of this car and endless visits to the shop to get random things repaired under warranty. This pops up and I'm told this probably won't be covered under warranty. Lovely! Seems the smoke is coming from the radiator...
  10. Gen1 Service Issues
    Approaching 36K miles and dealer has totally and completely blown off my claims of my transmission shifting poorly since day 1. Each and every time I have gone for service or called on the phone, they have dismissed my issue. Would LOVE to actually have the car shift at the proper times and...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So I'm having some big troubles with my car right now. I gutted the cats a few days ago, and everything has been terrible since Basically i have a very very rough idle, and at WOT around 4000 RPM, it will start to stutter and hesitate and just be all around crap. When I have my trifecta tune...

    Has anyone noticed this? I can duplicate it by sitting in the car w/o it moving or being turned on. Put elbow on armrest like you normally would - then move your lower arm (from elbow to hand) up and down while keeping the elbow seated on the armrest. Mine squeaks considerably. And the...
