Thank you for providing your representation and thank you for your kind words. I have a 2013 with 13,300 miles that started smelling like something electrical or rubber was burning when I start the car. I will call them Monday to get it in for the first time but it seems like I have a long road ahead of me trying to get the problem fixed. I have taken the car in before and they replaced the thermostat. Up until this morning, I had no problems.
These codes stand for communication errors between the temperature sensor and the vehicle's main computer. Recall for heat shield 4. Got to work and checked coolant, it was low. The initial housing was made of plastic. I am trying to keep it for a bit longer so that I can save for a down payment but you bet I am not purchasing another Chevy product. Took to dealer and found bad radiator.
This has been such a hassle I am now vehicle shopping and will not purchase another Chevrolet. The dealership will not help at all. With the newer Chevrolet Cruz models the thermostat housing itself is made out of aluminum. From what I was told by another mechanic, the car is loosing vacuum pressure and the valves or valve cover is leaking. Then on my way to get the car looked at it completely overheats and starts idling. Anyway, that was about a year ago or less. Now at 35k miles it got bad enough to take in.
As the driver continues to lose coolant they might find intermittent heat operation on their Chevrolet Cruze. With that said, while you're addressing the leak from the thermostat housing you should be aware of this common problem area. This should be a recall! This part is right near the oil filter against the engine also has a electronic thermometer for engine outlet coolant Temp. Little did I know that there was a problem. I first blew a fuel rail and valve cover. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. We have not had a problem with that issue since.
It's list of problems continues to grow. After inspecting a few of these failed coolant thermostat housing parts on several different years, you find different types of failures. In another situation, a consumer is complaining of. I had the oil changed last week and the dealership told me that I had a leak around my water pump but it would be a while before they could fix it. Still waiting for my appointment to have the car serviced at the same dealership to know if they will cover the expense of having it repaired even though the bumper-to-bumper warranty has already expired. Besides the nagging little things like auto climate that works only when its wants too and on the hottest days typically stops working. When the sun hits it you see swirls from wiping the window down with a cloth.
My step dad who is a mechanic fixed the problem but i didnt know about the recall. I pick it up tomorrow. Turns out they needed to replace 4 gears in the transmission. And no one said if there was anything in my oil. This time it's the antifreeze recovery tank hose. It wouldnt change gears correctly, the turbo wouldnt work, the cruise control wouldnt engage, i couldnt put it in manual, it would not accelerate, and it rolled when i put it in park. If you smell coolant or see a puddle under your Chevrolet Cruze, it is essential that you get to a General Motors authorized dealership as soon as possible to have the issue diagnosed and fixed.
I'll express some of my personal opinions about this poor design and how long it might take the company to realize people need help with this issue. They said they did a pressure test and all the levels were ok but i dont believe this. My wife will be taking it to the shop for the 6th time in 4 months later today. Losing coolant just as the others. Within a month the air conditoner quit working and very soon after that the smell came. The reservoir hose fitting has been completely remodeled. So I also replaced the hose.
I brought it in about 5 times but of course they only recorded customer complains of antifreeze smell twice on repair orders. How does this help my issues with this car? I have 29,000 miles on it. I then started it back up and started to take off and it done it again. This should be a recall based on over 120 complaints about the same issue. Still, I will persist and raise a stink since that is what I get in the car and what they continually shovel to me.
It's common to see a leak in this area. Calling dealer tmrw to take in. However, if you have replaced the spark plugs or performed other on your automobile this probably falls within your skill set. I have never had so many problems with a vehicle. Of the same recurring leak? Put less money into my last car that was a 2001 Ford Focus in the 5 years I drove that car.
I pulled over turned the car off. I have already missed some work because of it as well. This becomes a completely different part number than the newer models from 2012 through 2015. This trapped any moisture, i. Took it to dealer, they fixed the problem of over heating.
