Cruze has the same engine. Simple enough but I believe it is closer to $500 for the turbo complete.
Mine had that turbo leak too and it was covered . first they said no then double check and it was covered under drive train don't pay for it !I bought our Trax in 2015 used from a GM dealer about 125 miles away from our home, it had about 17,000 miles on it. In 2016 we started having rear brake issues and took it to a local GM dealer it was covered under warrant but it went back 3 times . Then in 2017 it had a couple recalls that the local dealer. Also in 2017 the motor went to Knocking hard. The local dealer said the valve cover was loose and scheduled an appointment. surprise came when they found the plugs were almost out of the block and the coil packs were holding them in, It had about 30,000 miles on it. At 45,000 we changed the tires before winter at about 50,000 miles the turbo started leaking coolant the local dealer said it was not covered under warranty and GM would not replace it. They wanted $1700 to replace it . That is my rant now how do I put a new turbo that is OME that cost $280 on ?

$1,030 they are charging me on my 2015 trax with factory warranty, called gm to see if it was covered, they called the same dealer that is fu**ing me,guess what they told them ? ... asked for the warranty department. they told me "we do not have one". told them these parts are $30.00 each why so much ? "it's manly labor" that is one **** of a tech ..i will be contacting the states attorney general.Mine had that turbo leak too and it was covered . first they said no then double check and it was covered under drive train don't pay for it !
Same issue with my 2020 Trax. I live in Minnesota, and we obviously have cold weather. The check engine light went on, and the dealer said the charge air cooler is the problem.We have a '16 Trax love the little thing. We live in an area where it gets cold. My check engine light came on twice and the 2nd time the dealer where i take the car for maintenance said i needed to take it to a GM dealer and have them check it. Well the turbo went out on it, ice was accumulating in charge air cooler causing condition. It was replaced but now each time it gets below 32 degrees or above that, i need to put on or take off a winter grill cover. the way the weather is always constantly changing in Iowa I could be running myself wragged. I would hate to have to pay for this after no longer under warranty and will it be a continual problem if not monitored properly?
I own a 2020 Trax AWD and it has been great for 3 winters in Vermont where we live in a house in a hill with snow and ice at times. Knock on wood but no problems whatsoeverDid they even check it or they just randomly said so. I don't believe this for 1 millisecond. What happens is frost will gather around the hose where the clamp goes and dirt will get in, when it thaws it leaks around the dirt and you can't produce enough boost. You just need to clean the neck and hose and grease it and re-clamp it. There should be a drain on the bottom of the intercooler but GM chose not to put one there. I drilled a little hole on driver's side to drain mine then plugged it back up with a small screw, now when I need it drained I just pull the screw out and go for a little drive around the block. When I get back it is free of all that was laying in the bottom like oil and water. Re-insert screw and voilà!
