Our 2011 Cruze with the 1.4 turbo is currently just over 70,000 miles. Just a few months ago, we ran into a problem that MANY have faced with the PCV failing in the valve cover due to the non return nipple failing in the intake manifold. Our car was surging terribly at idle, even getting to the point of stalling out because it had unmetered air coming through the PCV. This threw a bunch of lean codes. We replaced the valve cover in hopes that the 2012 model valve cover, released to be more resistive to this problem, would hold up longer. We were trying to avoid replacing the hole intake manifold assembly, valve cover, and breather line since we were just beyond powertrain warranty and did not want to pay $1200-1500. 

 

We replaced the valve cover two months ago, and the problem is occurring again. It sounds like it is a very well known issue from GM, yet they seem to not care enough to do anything about it. It makes the car undrivable, and now we will either have to replace the valve cover for $200 every other month, or shell out $1500 in hopes that the non return nipple doesn't fail again, in which case the problem would not return.

 

Would a GM rep please help me out?

Im having the same issues with my 2012 Cruze Eco Turbo i bought it used under 68,000 miles at first i thought it was a good buy but now im regreting every day.. Since ive had it for only 6mnths its been a headache porblem after problems with it. It's been non working more than it being used funny that the problems happened after my buyers warrenty ended and so i have been stuck with a car im unhappy to have. If i knew all that i now know about this car i would of never ever thought to purchase it. Its been recalls malfunctions one after another im fed up with it. It seems like once i fixed one issue another occurs.. I have had almost every problem listed this vehicle of this yr and model has complaints for. Sad that im still paying for a car i have not been able to drive with all of GM's malfunctions. It has sat in my garage 4mnths out of the six mnths ive had it for. This has caused a big stress and overwelming sadness over me that i am a working single mother of 4 that cant catch a break. Ive even been stuck over payments due to refusing to pay for this lemon of a car im stuck with no way out. Now i need the pcv valve replaced my 2012 has 78,000 miles my check engine has codes # P0171, P0299, P015B. All have to do with the PCV Valve i read that i am covered under the powertrain warrenty for those issues just want to b sure because im overly stressed some1 with imfo plse let me know. Thank you
