Has anyone here replaced their own waterpump on the diesel cruze??? Just wondering how hard it is, I have the part just waiting for time and wondering what I'm in for.
It is interesting to me that they consider the water pump a power train item. http://www.chevrolet.com/owners/warrantyMy '14 CTD water pump failed at 64K. It was replaced by local Chevy Dealer under powertrain warranty. They also did the Timing Belt and tensioner pulley (as required per GM). Repairs took several weeks due to lack of Timing Belt availability. It's documented here:
I'm assuming you must be out of powertrain warranty otherwise you wouldn't be asking for self-help. Sorry can't help much other than to highly recommend to also do the Timing Belt and Tensioner at the same time. Coolant from failed water pump can contaminate the timing belt and lead to premature failure.
Hopefully others can chime in with tips. And yes...this is the DIESEL 2.0 LUZ motor, not the notorious gas model.
Didn't get this far, just learned DEF is after the fact, injected into the cat. Are they using some kind of float valve that you can leave at full to fool the computer?I deleted my def tank lol
Just took the tank out, few clips and it was lifted, did the tune and delete kitDidn't get this far, just learned DEF is after the fact, injected into the cat. Are they using some kind of float valve that you can leave at full to fool the computer?I deleted my def tank lol
Did learn I could fill the tank, really don't have much problems pouring stuff in a hole, my dealers sure have this problem with an oil change.
Ha, I won't tell anybody, if I drive from the Twin Cities to Chicago on 1-94, well to I-90 diesel trucks every couple of feet. None of these have a DEF tank, EPA doesn't care, but sure pick on a 2.0L.Just took the tank out, few clips and it was lifted, did the tune and delete kit
My 2.0 CTD water pump went out at 63,000 miles. My local Chevrolet dealership mechanic said the ‘book’ calls for timing belt, idler and tensioner replacement when water pump fails but he added that he anticipated some pushback from his manager.My waterpump is leaking and I called the dealer it?s just under warranty but they won?t cover the timing belt of pulley or Tensioner
I pulled my service receipt and found the following. (Figured the “ref doc id 3950508 in Cautions and Notices” part might help you with the dealership regarding timing belt/tensioner/pulley replacement after water pump failure)My waterpump is leaking and I called the dealer it?s just under warranty but they won?t cover the timing belt of pulley or Tensioner
