Hi,
I noticed my 2012 Cruze wants to shut off while I am at a stop light (it appears to be stalling). Next day the check engine light turned on. I took it to Autozone and the primary code that popped up was 0171. I took it to a mechanic and he says my PCV needs to be replaced. He didn't charge me for looking at it but I'm wondering if I should take it to my dealer. I have 48k miles and my powertrain warranty is still active so I am curious to know if this falls under it. I don't want to take it in and get charged a $100 diagnostic fee plus the labor and part in addition to it. The mechanic I took it to said he'd charge $140 for it which includes the part. Appreciate your help.

There are plenty of dealer mechanics on here and until they chime in, read this: PCV Valve Covered under PowerTrain Warranty

The valve cover is included in powertrain coverage.
The PCV is integral with the valve cover and because of this it becomes a covered repair.

The PCV valve is integral to the intake manifold, and there's a burst disk integral to the valve cover. Both of them need to be inspected when your car is brought in or you will continue to have PCV problems. Both are covered under powertrain warranty.

Thanks for the info. I have an appointment with the dealership Tuesday and they said they still have to diagnose it and see if it will be covered under the warranty. That's fine and all but I guess I will make my argument if they give me any issues.
