2014 Diesel Cruze Wont Start

25733 Views 33 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  ewyborny
My 2014 Cruze with 37K miles wont start all of a sudden. I've never had any problems with the car. Just yesterday I went out to start the car, it cranked and sounded like the timing was off and then shut off. Sometimes it just cranks and doesn't try to start at all. Car is completely stock. Any ideas?

The only time I had ours do that was when the fuel gelled.

Being a diesel, there is no spark timing - so I'd be willing to bet it is fuel related.

At 37k, this should be covered under the powertrain warranty, but obviously getting it there might be a problem, haha.

Now that you've fixed it, see if the dealer will replace it under warranty with the new part, since it'll definitely do that again, it sounds like.

I honestly wouldn't touch it, lest doing so causes a problem.
