Hi has anyone experiencedengine revs increasing when foot is removed from accelelerator. I have experienced this quite a lot whenthe engine has reached running temp. When I remove foot from accelereratot the car surges forward I have to dip clutch and brake. I am awaiting a response from my garage once they contact Chevrolet, don't hold your breath. Has anyone else experienced this. I think personally it is something to do with anti -stall device. Car is a 2 litre LT diesel 2011Cruze Saloon.

I have the 2010 2.0 vcdi auto and have not experienced your problem. In fact despite my many complaints about omissions on the Cruze, I have found it to be far more reliable than other cars I have owned including three BMW's which I would never buy again. I can not understand the media's dislike of the Cruze , I find the roadholding to be excellent probably this why it has won the WTC several times.

have you checked the engine oil level to see if it has gone up? if there is diesel in the oil because of insufficient regeneration thsi could possibly be a cause of over revving. make sure you do annual services and oil changes, On the epica, (same engine) I do 5000 mile oil changes. make sure you use gm dexos 2 oil.

Changing engine oil every 5000 miles is IMO a waste of money. I change every year at approx 8000 miles, which is within Mnfgs. requirement. Correct grade of oil to use on a modern diesel is ACEA -C3 any Brand to this spec.

AND, if it hasn't got the dexos 2 certification, bang goes your warranty, as others have found out.
