Hey I am Scott and I am from Des Moines, Iowa. Thanks for the add. I own a 2013 1LT Cruze. We have around 55K on it and seems to be a nice little car. We are having some power problems and I know the forums can be a great place to start. I currently work at Brown National Lease (Semi Trucking Company) I have worked there for 12 years as a diesel tech. I also do some tuning in the gas area with a MicroSquirt Standalone ECM so I am not in the dark with auto. I actually prefer gas over diesel. Diesel just pays better lol. Thanks again for the add.

Welcome. You'll need to give us more of an idea of the symptoms before we can even have a shot at getting you pointed in the right direction.

Welcome to the forum!

Would you be able to describe these power issues a bit further? What octane fuel are you feeding your car?

I have already done some looking around about power problems. I didn't want to post anything in here. Some boards are picky about that. I am not putting in 91 into the car. 87 is what we use unless its a road trip then we will use the 91. Also the plugs are OEM. Mainly when sitting at a stop light and when it turns green its just a slow response with power and then a few seconds (Like 5) it will really take off. (Edit) It also does it on turns with acceleration. I know the turbo spools but it has been getting worse. We also have a tick in the upper part of the engine. I plan on checking on the plugs here soon. I did see a general maintenance section that I will check out. I have been going by the owners manual.
