The check engine light came on my Cruze 2013 1.6L Turbo and when I checked the error codes it was P0171 (System Too Lean (Bank 1) , I suspected PCV valve. I got the car serviced at the dealer and asked them to check it out and they also came back and said its the stuck open PCV valve.

I know the **** valve is molded onto the cam cover and a genuine valve cover is $800 AUD :eek:. I have seen aftermarket valve covers for this model online for around $100.

My question is has anyone replaced theirs with aftermarket one and do they fit well & long lasing ?

or do I have to bite the bullet and spend $800 on a genuine one ?

cheers 😀

I know nothing about the 1.6L.

That being said,

I do know that on the 1.4L (LUJ), the valve cover needs to be OEM because the aftermarket ones are crap.

Welcome aahhh Back!(y) Where have you been for seven years?

And to add to what JLL said, the PCV valve on the 1.4 is in the intake and at the turbo. (two of them) The PCV regulator is in the valve/camshaft cover.

1.6L engine is slightly different to 1.4L in the video , but i guess PCV system must be the same . will have a closer look to see if I can identify the check valves

This is much more than a place to just ask questions. We also accept answers! So when you start to figure out what to do, we would really appreciate anything you can describe as differences or maybe a completely different issue / fix. as we have little information on the 1.6.

yes the PVC is inside the rocker cover , I've seen a video where it can be separated from the rocker cover body . if thats the case then I can replace just the PCV regulator .
