Chevrolet Cruze Spark Plugs: Your Ultimate Guide to Selection, Installation, and Maintenance

Today, we are going to demonstrate the process of replacing the spark plugs on a 2012 Chevy Cruze equipped with a 1.4 liter turbo engine. This procedure should be applicable to the 2013-14 models of the same body style with a 1.4 liter turbo engine as well.

To begin, follow these step-by-step instructions:

  1. First, locate the T30 Torx connector and remove it by pulling back the orange tab and then pressing to release the connector.
  2. Once the connector is removed, carefully take out the bolts securing the ignition coil.
  3. Gently lift the ignition coil to access the spark plug. Use a 5/8 socket to unscrew and remove the old spark plug.
  4. Replace the old spark plug with the new one, ensuring it is properly fitted in place.
  5. Reinstall the ignition coil and secure it with the bolts removed earlier.

For this specific 1.4 liter Chevy turbo engine, the recommended spark plug part number is [insert spark plug part number].

If you have a 2.0 non-turbo engine, the process is similar, with the main difference being the presence of one coil per cylinder. Simply remove the top cover, unscrew the individual coil’s 10mm bolt, and proceed with the replacement as demonstrated for the turbo engine.
