the car has aisin af40-6 trans, same as tf-80scI've been reading that my 2015 1.4L has a 6T40 transmission. The 1.8L was downgraded to a 6T30 and eventually the 1.4L was downgraded to a 6T35 in 2016. I'm guessing our 2.0L Diesel Cruzes used a 6T45 or 6T40. I haven't found any concrete info yet. I would snag a spare transmission if I could and its much easier to find 1.4L donors than 2.0L.
Now I see reference to the "Aisin AF60" under the transmission ratios thread. Wikipedia calls it an AWTF-80. It sounds like its much better than the 6T40 and not at all compatible. I did see advertisements for the transmission controller that implied it was the same unit for both.
had none of these issues removing my dpf, im not understanding what youve doneReplacing the DPF Canister was much more difficult than I expected. After it was loose it did not want to drop out of the car. I had to remove the engine mount to finally get it out. Even that was surprisingly hard. The upper bolt is barely accessible by a Ujoint and a long extension poked up through the radiator fan.
copyThere is a bracket supporting the middle of the DPF. Two nuts on the DPF come off easy but the bracket wouldnt allow the DPF past. The second picture shows that. View attachment 292884 View attachment 292885
I couldn't get to the two 13mm nuts on the engine block without removing the engine mount and lifting the engine up just a little. The upper engine mount bolt was accessed through the radiator fan with a Ujoint and long extension.
been a couple years, for sure never touched intercooler pipe, dont member bending pressure pipes, but i wasnt concerned with damaging itYou have to bend the pressure pipes a little bit to get it out at all.
In addition the manual has you remove... Quite a lot... From the engine bay. Including the intercooler pipe. None of this really helps the dpf get out but it does give some space for hands.
if you drive that at night, hopefully the oncoming semi that you are blinding will take you off the roadWe love the new ride. It is much better than stock. We'll be doing the exact same modification to our other Cruze, which I believe to be a good example of stock setup given its low 50K mileage. I dont like the lean but the rear doesnt rub. I'll be modding the rear eventually too with a stiffer coil spring. This is the current side profile. We have 225/70R16 tires and rims from a 2005 Chevy Equinox on the Cruze. Those rims require a 1/4" spacer on the front to clear the strut. Its approximately 1.5" taller than stock with about 3/4" of that just from the larger tires being about 1.5" larger than stock. The 16" vs 17" rims means theres alot more sidewall and that softens the ride as much as the stiffer springs tightens the ride. Its perfect ride and it eats potholes beautifully. I also removed the little rubber thing on the front. It hops curbs and clears bumpstops now.
