That will depend on the style that you choose . i know of at least 2 . one replaces a core plug in the block , the other ussually installs in a heater hose and will circulate heated coolant through system .

How to install block heater on 97 chevy tahoe


The frost plugs that block heaters go in are along the sides of the engine block. About midway up from the bottom of block where the oil pan mates to the top block deck. 3 or 4 on each side, 1 to 2 inch diameter round metal plugs just slightly recessed in the block. Look below the exhaust manifold, behind the exhaust pipe on the block. Frost plugs are easy to punch out as long as you can get to them.
Punch in one side, and the other side will start to come out-then grab with pliers or vice grips to remove the plug.

When you buy a block heater for your Tahoe, it will come with an instruction sheet, and a diagram of the preferred or recommended frost plug hole to use the heater in. It will also usually show the positioning of the heater element in the block-how to orient the heater into the opening so the element does not touch the block anywhere, but is placed in so the element is exposed in the water jacket of the engine. That make sense? You do not need a sealer, as the block heater has its own O-ring rubber seal. When inserted and tightened down (small wrench or socket, about 3/8 inch or smaller size, do not over tighten-follow sheet instructions), the o-ring should not leak. Be sure and clean that recess well that frost plug was in- get all the rust and scale off with rags or emery cloth (sandpaper).
Not hard at all to install a block heater once the frost plug is removed. Getting access to the frost plug is the devil to deal with. If you are unsure, have it installed for you.

Why is there a electric plug under the hood of my 2003 impala


Hi, someone has likely installed a block heater for cold climates. In Northern climates, the car is plugged in overnight to keep the engine from freezing. If you have recently moved to the north, talk to your neighbors about how to use a block heater in the local area. If you bought the car used and do not live in cold climates, you can ignore the heater.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I need to bleed air from my radiator/engine block cooling system after installing a new water pump and other items.How do I locate the vent port or bleed valve on the block or wherever?Where is it located?


It is usually located on either the thermostat housing or on the highest point in the cooling system top radiator hose housing going into the engine. Run the motor for approx. ten minutes then turn heater on high unscrew bleeder 3/4 of a turn and then turn back in when coolant squirts out. Repeat after 5 more minutes of run time.

Not all F150's came with them,, but typically on the straight sixes the plug into the block was on the passenger side of the engine.
But like i said,,not all F150's came with block heaters.
