SOURCE: I have a Dodge 08, 2500. Where is the block heater located?

Block heaters are usually inserted into a freeze plug manufacturing hole in the cylinder block, heating the metal, coolant and oil.

SOURCE: location of block heater cord on my 2003 chevy silverado

MIne was on the passenger side inside the wire loom next to the shock. You can get to it through the fender well. It just looked like a ball of tape and only the plug itself was exposed with the rest of it doubled back on itself inside the loom. It was actually long enough to stick out of the front of the truck.

SOURCE: purge solenoid location

which vehicle are you actually looking for the purge solenoid on? you have 2 vehicles listed in your question. i'll answer both, lol

the locations are described as if you are looking at the engine from the front of the car with hood open.

on the blazer:

it is located on the left side of the intake manifold just under and behind the throttlebody. it is a canister looking device.

on the silverado:

it is located on the intake manifold on the left side in about the same spot as the blazer. providing the silverado has the 5.3 or 5.7 liter engine. if it also has the 4.3 then obviously it will be the same.

hope this helps!

Where is the connector located for my heat knock sensor


Confused on your question. If you are looking for the plug for your block heater, it should be on the drivers side of the block,towards the front of the engine. But keep in mind that a block heater is an option and not all trucks, especially non diesels, will have one. If you are looking for the knock sensor connectors, there are 2 of them and they are under the intake manifold. It will have to be removed to get to them.

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.

Frost Plug


The engine freeze out plugs are all one size. The block heater takes the place of a freeze out plug.
