So picked my car up from the dealership today and they told me I had a bad oxygen sensor. Hard to believe with 63k on the car and I have the hissing sound from the pcv. Told the service writer about it acting funny after I noticed the sound and that I read about it on here. She replied "you can read a bunch of stuff online" yea I know but I researched it. Anyways they said it had a p015b-00 code slow response sensor 1. Just wondering if this could be only the pcv or both the pcv and sensor. Thanks 2013 cruze Lt rs
(We also discovered that the remote start won't work when the check engine light is on, but that's just an aside.)My wife's 2012 LT is showing the same P015B code (along with the rough idle, surging and CEL). The car also gave me the following codes:
P0106 - Powertrain - MAP/barometric pressure
P1101 - Powertrain
P2AAA- Body (this is a "catch-all" code, kind of useless for diagnostics)
P0507 - Powertrain - Idle Control System RPM higher than expected

Couple of days ago I noticed my car starting to idle really high when it was warming up (1500 rpm) before it would go back down. The car has already been in the shop before for a rough idle but was repeatedly told it was "normal". Now the idle is very rough with a pronounced 'miss' its like a cylinder just isn't firing and the car is idling around 600 rpm. The check engine light came on and then the 'service traction control' came on but went off the next time I started it.
I have a video I'm loading onto youtube right now of it. Car has 35k miles and is really starting to tick me off. Will be bringing it to the dealership tom. Any clues to what I'm in for?
Either to the end of the initial warranty or 12 months/12,000 miles after repair, whichever comes later. Most GM repairs come with a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty for the repair itself just in case there is an "infant mortality" failure of the replacement part.There is no additional warranty for parts that were replaced during warranty.
Example: Cam cover replaced at 3 years/50,000 miles showing.......the car has a 5 year/100,000 mile warranty......the camcover is only covered for the remaining warranty, ie, 2 years, 50,000 miles.
So, this one is on your dime.
Hello docdoomcruze,I had this problem at 46000 miles and was replaced under warranty in nov 2013. At 109231 and having same problem.what is the warranty on replacement parts? Looks like a ongoing problem with theses cars looks like its going to have to be replaced on a 50,000 miles tine frame.
So you dont ever notice the little surges i noted in my post? If not, and if i'm the only one, i am not worried. I am no master tech, but the symptoms match up and yes the car is a heavy build but i cant think of other logical reasons for the surge to occur. The oil pumps and any pumps of that matter are electrically powered and i always feel a little pull when using a/c, windows etc so im sure i am safe. I could be wrong but i know my cruze very well so thats why iam saying this. And when i'm at a light and it surges, i pop it in neutral and it stil surges, just a little more quiet. And by the way, these surges dont happen often, and it is honestly just a matter of me paying attention to listening/feeling for it.The Cruze surges very slightly under certain circumstances, but they tend to be well defined. The car does not surge while sitting at a stop light, even when the A/C compressor turns on or off. It may be a small engine but it's a heavy car, which smooths out surges.
