I replaced the head gasket on my daughter’s 2013 Cruze with the 1.4. I did everything by the book while doing this got it all back together now it’s showing engine reduced power, service traction control, and the stabilitrak. I didn’t have any of this before I changed the head gasket. I changed the throttle body still no change any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing something didn't get plugged in all the way or the timing is off.

It does sound like something isn'r connected properly. All those plastic connectors get very brittle with age. I suggest verifying all connections are plugged back in securelly, erase the codes and take it from there. I replaced the head gasket on my 2013 and it is very easy to accidentally bump a hose or wiring not even associated with the repair.

Ok thanks to you all on the advice I’m checking it out now and a friend of mine runs towing and repair shop is supposed to stop by put it on his scanner. I’m sure it’s something simple I’m overlooking.
