Is direct injection new (USA 2016 1.4) ?
Robby posted something awhile back. IIRC, the starter is the alternator. So there's no starter clutch or anything like that. And it's fast. No crank, it's just running again.suppose the starter motor will be beefier to better handle the added work ?
If you have the HVAC running, and it isn't in ECO mode, it won't shut off. There are other parameters that have to be met as well, such as ECT.I have start/stop on my 2014 Malibu and the biggest problem is getting the engine to shutoff when you stop. Maybe in the 2016 MY GM will work the start/stop strategy so it works better. For my 2014 Cruze, I simply shut it off if I know a light is going to last more than 10 seconds. Since my Cruze is a daily driver to and from work, I know all the lights I have to stop at and I know the long and short ones. As far as wear and tear on the starter, we'll see. However, I do try my best to time the lights so I don't get caught by them.
