Hiya
The factory install block heater wire harness around the air filter unit area (IF it's equipped with this block heater feature)
IF it's the wire you're searching for to plug it into the electric outlet, here's how to...
Pop open the hood as you stand in front to raise the hood, look for the black square-shaped air filter unit at the left-front side just behind the passenger side headlight area.
There's a black plastic clamp that holds the block heater wire harness onto the air filter's bolt bracket by the front strut tower area (bolt is north of the air filter unit)
That's the route for this block heater wire harness to go around the left side of the air filter unit.
In case you do locate the block heater wire harness there, follow the wire harness route until you find the plug socket.
Perhaps it's underneath the air filter unit or tucked somewhere behind the headlight frame area.

Where is plug in cord located?


I suspect your referring to the block heater?

A block heater for your Equinox may be a cold climate option so your vehicle may not be equipped with one.

The A/C connection plug is usually located under the hood close to the front of the vehicle.

Do i need to plug in my mitsubishi outlander in cold weather


if the engine has provision for coolant and oil heating for cold weather then it would be very advisable to use it
It stops slow oil circulation from very heavy oil and stops chances of the coolant freezing and cracking the block and heads .

2004fordtaurus3.0 engine runs rough in cold weather when started. like today in new york 13degee


You know what...there's nothing wrong with your engine...When metal is cold...it contracts...thus causing more friction between moving parts...this is why your motor runs rough in cold weather...I'm gonna give you a crazy suggestion...Have you heard of a "Block Heater"...it is a heated dip stick that you place in your engine overnight..
this device keeps your oil at operating temp overnight...so when you start your car....the block is warm...and the oil flows like magic..just pull out your dipstick...insert the block heater...and rest easy...of course...it has to plugged into a 110 volt outlet...You can find these online by Googleing it or go to www.yourautonetwork.com...Give it a try and let me know....I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

2005 ford f250 powerstroke, I can not locate the plug to keep diesels from gelling on cold weather jmo_101@yahoo.com


plug to keep from gelling??? no such thing..there may be an engnieblock heater that makes for easier starting in cold wweather, but this does not accomodate fuel heating. the power cord for the block heater is an option from factory, not all are built with it. howeer, all diesels have the actual heater installed. it is in the right side of the engine as i recall and will have 3 prongs stickinjg out that the plug would snap onto..this heater is in place of an engine freeze plug..the power cord can be ordered from your dealer for abouit $80.00 (US $)..as far as anti gelling, that would be an additive poured directly into you fuel upon fill up..i would suggest using it around 35 degrees f, and below

My 1994 chevy caprice is leaking water


will try to help. where is the leak coming from? can you tell?under the front of motor where the engine fan is? could be water pump. could be a busted hose,upper or bottom radiator hose.there are 2 hoses that run to your heater core at the firewall or dash panel, could be there. leaking from sides of engine? could be a freeze out plug rusted through or if it's gotten below freezing and you did'nt have anti-freeze, most likely a freeze plug, they are designed to save your engine block from busting when you don't have anti-freeze in freezing weather. if you can repost your problem with a location, front, sides, or inbetween the back of engine and transission, i can help you. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I can't locate my plug in for the block heater in my 2005 Ford Taurus...any hints as to where it might and/or how to locate?


Get down on your knees and look down near the front end of the car in between the grates/grill, from the outside. It should be more so on the driver side. You should see a small black square thing with a cord coming out of the back of it, that's the cap for the block heater plug. Reach in and you will be able to pull the cap to the side, and you'll see the plug facing you.
