Here's one from E-Bay that appears to be the correct one for the 2014-15 Cruze 2.0 TD.Does anyone have a recommended one from amazon? I can find this one on amazon for the same price and I'm coming up on another oil change and fuel filter change. Might as well get everything in one shot from the same place.
Thie above link appears to be a match. For reference, here's a picture of my '14 CTD oil drain plug.Here's one from E-Bay that appears to be the correct one for the 2014-15 Cruze 2.0 TD.

So you got that quick release installed and it fit. I got one and it didn't fit. Maybe I got a bad one?I actually just replaced my oil drain plug as well after it was getting slowly rounded off. Sometimes happens if you don't have a good grip on the bolt. Instead of buying a replacement, I bought one of these:
It makes changing oil that much easier and quicker. These have been around for a long time apparently, and a lot of people love them.
I checked compatibility with the 2014 diesel on their website Search Results | Fumoto®️ Engine Oil Drain Valves and it seems it uses the same type (F-106) as the 1.4T
They make other versions that have a barbed end that you can attach a tube to that will make oil changes even cleaner and easier but I didn't see a need in that.
Just thought I'd share
Correct, the stock OEM plug doesn’t need to be removed completely. It starts flowing after a few turns.Looks to me like one wouldn't even have to pull the bolt out completely. That pic posted by rivergoer looks to be a shallow inside with a drain hole.
Course. It may be messier. Till one got it our far enough to aim the drain down to the pan.
I prefer as much drainage as possible myself. Too.Correct, the stock OEM plug doesn’t need to be removed completely. It starts flowing after a few turns.
However I’ve found after it stops flowing if I remove the plug completely I’ll get another few ounces. Not a huge deal, just something to note.
