Customer Question
I have a 2016...

I have a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. Making noise from the engine compartment and has a slight missing. When I remove the oil cap while running engine smooths out and noise stops temporarily and bogs down almost stops running.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

About 3 months ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cruze yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just removing the oil cap.seems like this is where noise is coming from.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not quite do for a oil change. But the last time I had it changed I had a oil leak on top had something to do with the plastic housing beneath the oil cap.

Hello there,

Removing the oil cap will probably produce an engine warning lamp.

Then there will be codes set.

I would say the noise you are hearing is a vacuum leak within the valve cover, and it needs further inspection.

Do you have a Chevy dealer nearby?
