Look at the passenger side of the block. The rear freeze plug should have a block heater instead of a freeze plug. It'll be the rear freeze plug. If all you see is a 3 prong plug, the cord somehow got lost. I replaced on a truck very similar to yours. I got the entire assembly from NAPA. It comes with the piece that goes into the side of the block and has the cord with it so you can plug it into an AC outlet.

My diesel is difficulty to start on cold cold days. it also will have a large amount of ssmoke after cranking


First, for poor starting from cold, you need to check the heater plugs, to do this, remove the wiring to each heater plug, then get a piece of wire/cable and get another person to help, you need to hold one end on the top of the heater plug, where the wire was connected, and get your assistant to flash the other end of your wire on the positive terminal of the battery, now, if there is a spark, then that heater plug is ok, if there is no spark, then that heater plug is faulty and should be replaced, do this to all heater plugs, and replace as necessary. Ideally , if just one is not good, then i would advise to replace all..
As for smoke from start up, all diesels will smoke on initial start up but it should clear when warmed up. However, if you have constant smoke, presumably black smoke, then you should check the air cleaner and hoses first, that the filter is clean and that the hoses are not blocked, split or collapsing when you give a bit of revs to the engine. The next step would be to check the fuel filter,if it has a drain plug, then undo that and see if the fuel is discoloured or you see any debrit coming out, it would be wise to change this , unless it has been changed recently. If you still have smoke, then you need to get the injectors checked, this can only be done by a diesel fuel workshop. Hope this helps

Location of block heater cable on 05 F350 diesel


The block heater is already installed in your 6.0. The cord may not be there as it is an option in some states and standard equipment in others. The best way to see if your cord is there is to crawl under and look up by the # 4 cyl and you will either see 2 prongs sticking out for the cord or you will see the cord. The cord should end in the front bumper behind where the front tag would be. If you dont have the cord Id suggest getting it off ebay as it should be cheaper than the dealer. Hope this helps.

I cannot find the block heater plug for 2000 ford f350 diesel


if you are certain that one is even installed... look around the headlights on the inside of the car.... they often have the cord fed thru that area.

Engine block heater not working/truck wont start if cold


Hi bud876 did you get a faulty block heater? if the cord and block heater are new it should work when energized double check for power, as far as glow plugs do they cycle? is the glow plug relay working properly?you would be a lot better going with a circulating heater rather than a block heater,hope this helps good luck
