Where is the block heater cable located


Many times a block heater is not a "factory" option and is installed by the owner. Since the install is not standard the cable or plug could be anywhere. There is a strong likely hood that a block heater is not installed in your vehicle. If that is the case one can be installed by yourself or your local repair facility.

Cant find the block heater cord


need more info, what year, make, model, engineering. just because the owners manual says.there is a block heater, that doesn't mean you have one look around, try to find a short power cord that you would plug into a extension cord, also look at the engine block, look.at all your freeze plugs, this is where most block heaters go, if you do not see anything in.any of the freeze plugs, then.you do not have one the other kind of engine heater, would be in the top or bottom radiator hoses, or even.heat core hoses, again.there would be.a.cord.to.plug into. most of the time, they would pull the cord up to the front, by the grill, so you can plug it in

Old Lady here... Be KIND, Please! Where is the plug in thingy for the heater on the engine? We are at -9 and I can't find it. Thanks for any help.


The thing you are looking for is called a block heater and most vehicles dont come standard with them. Mostly people put them in after market. But if there is one, it will be in one of the bigger radiator hoses in the front. Probably on the very top or very bottom of the motor. Obviously look for a hanging cord to plug into. Other than that, i wish i could help ya. Maybe try reposting with the make and model of your vehicle. good luck

Does a 1997 Geo Tracker have a block heater?


In most cases the block heater would have been a dealer installed item. If your car has one installed, you can find it by looking at the engine for the wiring or plug/ in cord. If one was installed and the cord is missing look at the engine block for a round connector mounted right into the block of the engine, look for the two connectors that the cord will plug into. they look like this --- mcneb_13.jpg

I want to change a block heater cord


Hello
If you have a frost plug type heater the cord does unplug from the unit.
if its a in line hose type heater chances are you wont be able to replace just the cord.

Location of block heater cable on 05 F350 diesel


The block heater is already installed in your 6.0. The cord may not be there as it is an option in some states and standard equipment in others. The best way to see if your cord is there is to crawl under and look up by the # 4 cyl and you will either see 2 prongs sticking out for the cord or you will see the cord. The cord should end in the front bumper behind where the front tag would be. If you dont have the cord Id suggest getting it off ebay as it should be cheaper than the dealer. Hope this helps.

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.

I need to find the engine heater plug in cord from my new-to-me 1997 F350 diesel


Look at the passenger side of the block. The rear freeze plug should have a block heater instead of a freeze plug. It'll be the rear freeze plug. If all you see is a 3 prong plug, the cord somehow got lost. I replaced on a truck very similar to yours. I got the entire assembly from NAPA. It comes with the piece that goes into the side of the block and has the cord with it so you can plug it into an AC outlet.
