Freeze plug heaters were designed for V8 domestic engines. It is possiable to install in your engine if you have the correct size plug to fit your car, but it will be a pain. I would return the plug and get the type that installs in the lower radiator hose. but if you insist on a freeze plug heater, they will be located on the back side of the engine block. Good Luck

You have to remove a freeze-plug from the block, and then replace that plug with the block-heater element. THIS IS NOT AN EASY JOB!

I am trying to install a block heater because I am heading north to Alberta.


Block heaters are installed in place of one of your freeze plugs on the engine. Drain the coolant and knock out a freeze plug to install. Directions are included with the block heater, including usually which freeze plug to put the heater in, and the orientation of the heater in the freeze plug hole.

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

Where is my Block heater located on the block


Block heaters dont come as standard equipment. But if you have one look along the sides of the block under/behind the exhaust manifolds. If you have one it will be installed in what are known as the freeze plug holes. If you dont have heaters and need one you can pick one up at most autoparts stores. they come with installation instructions

Water leak in back of engine


That's possible. I would check the heater hoses. They mount to the heater core at the firewall, from the engine. You maybe able to see the freeze plugs from underneath.

How to install a block heater on a chevy trailblazer?


First check and see if there is a pouch located directly beside your battery. If there is a pouch it will contain a plug that is for the factory engine block heater. If there is no plug then you can pursue an aftermarket type.

There are several types. If you want to use a freeze plug block heater, you'll need to have someone help you remove a freeze plug. That usually requires that you remove a lot of the peripheral equipment until you can get a clear access to one of the freeze plugs. Measure the freeze plug then go to an auto parts store and purchase a freeze plug block heater of that specific size. Once you have one that will fit into the hole, you can drill a hole in the freeze plug, then use a prying instrument to remove the old freeze plug. The block heater freeze plug usually goes in with a nut to tighten the freeze plug into the hole.

BTW, you'll get a lot of antifreeze all over when you do this, and plan on taking your time since it will be time consuming.

My daughter has owned a 2005 Hyundai Accent since it was new. The car has NO heat. The blower works but it produces no heat and never has. There is fluid in the radiator.


couple possibilities - is the engine temp gauge in the normal range? if not, could be a thermostat issue. otherwise, have seen heater cores plug up on these. a heater core flush followed by a full cooling system flush will fix this.
