What troubles me is another problem:
- Drive the car for a while
- Press clutch and break (for example on red light, doesn't need to be fast breaking)
- Engine RPM will be dropping below Idle and jumping up and down between 500-900
- This will continue until
- A: Car stops moving (brake can still be pressed)
- or B: Releasing the brake for longer time while car is still moving
- Then RPM is stable at idle (pressing the brake when car not moving at idle = IDLE rpm is stable)
At first i thought it is just RPM sensor or "gauge/display" acting up because engine doesn't produce vibrations or sound that would suggest it is close to stalling. But then driving at night i noticed when this is happening the lights intensity is going up and down together with RPMs.
Really baffled by this. I mean it never ever let the engine stall and if not for the "blinking lights" issue i wouldn't even chase the issue.
Another (possibly related?) issue is sometimes current L/100km consumption meter is showing really high consumption and at the same time not showing 0 consumption when going downhill with gear engaged and foot off the throttle. This is however not bothering me so much right now just writing it as it may be related.
What is disappointing is attitude of local GM (Opel/chevy) attitude: I was at GM service here and they told me Cruze in general have problems with keeping idle rpms. It seems like they didn't even want to hear out the details about the problem. As soon as i told the "Idle rpm" they didn't even listen more just kept the it's Cruze just live with it attitude.
Thanks for help
