If this is a v6 on the left rear of the engine. To locate you need to look from the bottom.
just to the side of the manifold there is a hole in the engine casting. the block heater fits externally in this hole.Its held by a clip on the side.

SOURCE: which type of engine oil do i use for my chevrolet

It's called Dexos1. Dexos2 is for Diesels. Your local parts store will more than likely have to order it if they dont have it in stock.

Overheat in 2011 chevy cruze lt

My experience has been causes for over heating was.
leak and low coolant, fan not running if you have 2 fans one come on when A/C is turned on the other comes on when engine reaches operating temp. I have had thermostat stuck closed, radiator cap not sealing, fan fuse or relay, temp sensor not working temp sensor could keep your fan from coming on, I have also had to change a couple radiator but it was due to leak. I have heard of some where radiator was blocked up, I think those were issues of stop leak was used for many years.

2011 chevy cruze 1.4 ltr where is the oil pressure sensor located

Set park brake..,wear safety glasses.., Raise truck front suspension and place on strong Jack stands for space..Or else crawl under it...The sensor you speak of is normally mounted above the oil pan in the engine block...The oil pressure sensor is normally at the center of block just above the oil pan..However there should also be a crank sensor but it will not be in the center of block....It should be at the rear of sensor should be at front of engine...Look at passenger side of engine..

How do I find the heat blend door actuator for my 2011 Chevy Cruze

Without being able to be there to point it out, I'll attach a link and picture to help show where the actuator is located. It's on the right side of the heater housing, under the dash.

It should look like this:


Here is an exploded view of all heater parts.
The actuator will be part # 45 in the diagram.
