Do u know how to tell between luj and luv?
Doesn't matter.

The LUJ and LUV are identical engines. Initially, General Motors planned to release an E85 capable version of the LUJ, therein changing the RPO code to LUV. However, the LUV was never calibrated to use E85, and is therefore not E85 capable.

If you feel the need to add e85 capability...

I have a blown 2015 Chevy Cruze 1.4l Luv engine. Would a 2017 Chevy Cruze 1.4l LUV engine fit into my car ?

The 17 is a LE2, and no.

A 17+ Sonic or Trax and lower trim Encores still use the LUV though.

Edit: if you are unsure, the engine cover's wider on the LE2 and the oil cap is in the left rear of the motor.

MY 2015 1.4 LUV ENGINE BLEW. WOULD THE NEW 16+ 1.4L LUV WORK AS WELL? FOR SOME REASON THE ENGINES FOR THE 2015 ARE TWICE AS MUCH.
