How to change a block heater in a 1999 Ford taurus se durance 3 litre durance engine


SO you have determined that the installed heater has failed and confirmed that your electrical connections are all good... Then you will need to drain the coolant and then extract the heater from the plug hole before pressing the new heater back into the same spot then refill the coolant. This is an interference fit so make sure you get it seated and check for leaks before considering the job complete. Good luck!

Where is location of engine block heater on subaru forester?


The location is a on the bottom of the engine block, just above where the oil dipstick enter the oil pan. If it does not have a block heater already installed, there will be a plug that takes a 14mm allen wrench/socket. Coolant must be drained to avoid being covered in it when the plug is removed.

Need to know where my Heater Core hoses hook up to on the engine? I see the Hoses but is there a seperate part that the hose connects to?


The best way to locate a heater core hose is to determine where the heater core is located. Many vehicles have the heater core inside the dash. Other vehicles, usually larger vans and trucks, will have a heater core box inside the engine compartment. Once you have determined where the heater core is located in your vehicle, that will allow you to easily locate a heater core hose. If the heater core is inside the dash, you'll need to examine the firewall for the hoses. If it is in a heater box, you'll need to look around the engine compartment for the box.




Heater cores located inside dashes can be very difficult and time consuming to replace. Depending on the layout of your engine compartment, it can also be difficult to locate a heater core hose. If there is very little clearance between the engine and the firewall, you may have difficulty finding the hoses. You might need to use a flashlight to look from the underside in some cases. You will typically be able to identify the heater hoses where they enter the firewall by looking for two two small diameter hoses that protrude into the engine compartment. You can then trace those hoses to their other ends, where they will typically connect to a thermostat housing, the radiator, or a t-connector.


Hope this helps.

I had a block heater installed [which stopped working ] and now it is overheating and heater is not working at idle, only when vehicle is above 1800 rpm. Did the block heater replace the thermostat and if...


First thing you need to do is check the coolant level. If low, the heater will not work properly. Next, check for leaks, especially at the block heater because that's the last item worked on before your problem began. I've never seen any block heater that installs in place of a thermostat. The thermostat needs to be there for the computer to determine what mode is should be in. Most block heaters are installed in a freeze plug opening, in place of the plug (on one side of the block). if the engine has overheated, thermostats can become unreliable after that happens so regardless of the reason for the overheat, replace it. (cheap insurance against future problems). don't forget to check everything for leaks...it is possible that something else is leaking. There are some heaters that are a pad glued to the bottom of the oil pan...If that's the kind you have, it can't cause a problem like yours...they aren't used much because they aren't as efficient and can be easily be damaged.

I am looking for the location of the block heater plug on a 1997 Golf diesel, thanks


There is no specific spot for a block heater. A block heater can be in any location the block currently has a freeze plug in. You'll need to look over the block carefully - you will see several round "ports" on the block and one of them will have a wire coming out of it. A freeze plug looks kind of like a small dish in the block, whereas a block heater will look more like a flat plug with a wire. It could be on the side or back of your motor - rarely is there room for a block heater on the front of a motor. Look in the front grill or in the general area of the radiator and you should see one end of a male electric cord( like the end of a lamp cord you stick in the wall ) . Follow this wire to the engine and it will lead you to the location of the block heater. You will probably need an inspection mirror and a flashlight to find the other end ( in the block).
Hope this helps!

What temp do i need to use my block heater? celcius


i will assume your engine is a gas engine. Not sure where you are located but my opinoin would be if you are having staring issues on cold start up then i would plug it in when you think you will have trouble. If you are asking about weather related issues as to prevent you engine from freezing then you will need to test you antifreeze to determine how strong your mixture is and that will tell you at what temp or below you would need to plug it in. I believe on celcius scale 0 is freezing but you need to know how good your antfreeze is and what it is mixed for. most 50/50 mixes will give you all the protection you need but dont count on it. Take it to anyone who has a shop they will be able to test your level and reccommend to you at what piont you should protect it and plug it in.

2003 duramax 2500 i need to know the location of the cord for the block heater


If it has the block heater, the heater is located on the drivers side center of engine block. You should be able to crawl underneath, and see where the heater is put in place of a freeze plug, and just follow the wires up.. Usually tucked in along the fender somewhere..

97 Ford F250 diesel block heater shorts out when I plug it in


A block heater is just a simple heating element. There are no fuses b/c you run house voltage (120V) out to it, and those are on breakers, so no need for 12V truck fuses.

Block heaters can range from 500 watts on up to 1500 watts. U know those heaters in Wal Mart that only go up to 1500 watts? That's as much as heaters (including block heaters) are allowed to pull off house current. Remember, use a heavy gauge extension cord, not that 100' long skinny thing. That's not good.

OK, to check the block heater, all you need is a simple voltmeter. Switch it to Ohms (resistance). That's the one with the Omega sign. Put one lead on one flat terminal on the plug of your block heater, and put the other lead on the other flat terminal. Leave the ground (round) terminal alone.

If it reads infinity, or open, then your block heater is bad. It's an open circuit.

If it reads resistance, then it should be good. I don't know what readings for a Powerstroke they should have, b/c often resistance changes with how hot/cold it is outside.

If you plug it in to your house and you hear arcing/sparking, then don't use it until you figure out what's doing that. The block heater is usually on the passenger side, although on Powerstrokes it could be different. However if you follow your plug, you're gonna find where that heater goes. Chances are some idiot has pinched the wire.

If you plan on replacing it, soak it down good with penetrate oil. It's gonna be a bear. And remember to drain your antifreeze down.

Block heaters are great b/c it reduces wear on your glow plugs, plus you get hot heat almost instantly after you start.

Plugging it in any long than two hours before you crank it is a waste of time. It can only get the block so warm, and it does it really quick.
