where did you get the BKR8EIX plugs at?
Believe it or not...I'm with you on this! For the 10 or so days you COULD use the ac here in the midwest it's just not worth the money or loss of power to me. In the 4-1/2 years I've had my Cruze and driving 380-400 miles a week, I can honestly say I have used the AC less than 20 times. FWIW, once I get my car up to speed it is flawless and cruises as good as the best of them (and that's on 87 - 89 max octane).I'll probably just deal with the ac issue when my wife complains. I don't like using the thing anyways, but i appreciate the heads up on the possible cause.
I've always wondered why they haven't tried this before. Harder to control than a diesel burn maybe? Too much variation? Hmm.Mazda claims to have a gasoline engine with a 16:1 compression that ignites the fuel without the use of spark plugs.

I wonder if you have a vacuum leak that isn't large enough to set the P0171 code. Sitting at idle the only time I've had this type of problem was shortly before my car set the P0171 lean code.sluggish as in it's almost to the point of stalling out. Has the occasional sputter, and has substantially less power than when it was 60F weather here.
I was wondering this too, but it's gotta be a small one, because no codes have popped up, and I couldn't find anything on any of the vacuum lines I could find. Either way, that one has me thinking it might be the issue. Going to call the dealership Monday and see how bad they want to rob me to look at it.I wonder if you have a vacuum leak that isn't large enough to set the P0171 code.

Just a thought - reseat your oil dipstick.
put in about a quarter of a tank of octane 91 gas(best they had near the house) and so far nothing is making a difference.
It's funny I just realized I had the PI# for this forever, Is this the one they are using for this situation? #PI1052: Hesitation at high ambient temperature?Bones,
If you haven't gotten the ECU recall done, get it done. This recall appears to also assist in hot weather.
No, we're talking about the one that came out in April for 2011-2014 1.4T Automatics. It's an emissions recall, but it's believed to make the early cars run more like the 2014 when it comes to 87 octane.It's funny I just realized I had the PI# for this forever, Is this the one they are using for this situation? #PI1052: Hesitation at high ambient temperature?
