Showed it some love. Washed it, did the windows inside and out and cleaned the interior.

Also downloaded a maintenance log and started to input all of the history for it.

Let the wife drive it so I could give our Fit some TLC. The Cruze's rustproofing is mostly done, so the Fit's got done today, along with changing the Fit's ATF.

Took our new (used) Cruze back to the dealer today to fix some stuff I wasn't happy with when they sold it. But they are making it right, so all is good. And they said they would fill it up and detail it again too. So that's nice!!

Loving our new car. It's a beauty.

washed the interrior - it has been a while and so glad I bought the husky all weather mats - it is amazing how clean they keep the carpet.

Finished the wiring on the nearly completed trailer and hooked it up to make sure everything worked right. Aside from a bulb that didn't work, it all worked perfectly first time! I guess that means my solder joints are pretty good after all! This was also the first time I had hooked up trailer lights to the harness kit, so I'm glad to see it worked correctly.

Haven't seen a topic like this on here yet, but if this is in the wrong place mods feel free to move it please.

Anyhow to stick with the topic I did my first AMSOIL oil change today.
Hey Daryl how much did that oil cost you and how much quarts does the car take? Also how many miles between oil changes? I heard Amsoil goes longer? True? Is it an easy car for oil changes to do yourself?

Here is the Amsoil info http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/10-engine-technical-discussion/29009-amsoil-your-cruze-engine-transmission-fluids.html

PM Xtreme so he can tell you his prices as he doesn't advertise those prices outside of a PM or FB message.


I'll possibly wash the car today or at least vacuum and wipe the insides down.




p.s. if we find a thread similar, let us know and we'll just merge the 2.

Off topic but related to oil changes. All my oil changes have been done at the dealer, even though I've had 6 wix filters sitting on the self in my garage. Decided at 3500miles to spin off the filter and swap in a new one just to see how well it was holding up. I wasn't planning on using that new gasket but when I went to reinstall I noticed the gasket was so stretched it was sticking out of its groove significantly on once side.

Swapped on the new filter lid gasket, it had a nice tight fit. Got to thinking, my previous car 2.2 ecotec with similar filter only the aftermarket filters came with a new gasket, the AC delco ones did not. Is my dealer not changing this? Does the Cruze AC delco filter not come with a new gasket? As loose an worn as the one was on my car it certainly didn't look like it was ever changed, and I'm surprised it had not started leaking.

Opened the hood, checked all the fluids, all are good, so just drove it. Took all about five seconds, oil is still clean and at the full mark.

Thought about cleaning off the insects, but figure I will wait until I get a couple more, same amount of work.
