Question about 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country
I've tried several times, without success to find the Block Heater connection that the build sheet and option list both say my 1994 Cherokee Country 4.0L "gas" engine has. I've searched for it all around the air cleaner area where the owner's manual says it's located to no avail.. I might mention this Jeep was made in Canada, so the ideal of a block heater for a gas engine in that cold climate didn't seem so far fetched to me.....
I learned through the 2nd owner (I'm 3rd owner) that the original owner requested specific package and options for this Cherokee that the dealer only found after looking north in Canada...
Before being shipped to U.S. it was refitted with standard speedometer,tach, gauges,etc...
I still retain all paper work from build sheet, U.S. customs, to original owner's purchase...
I get laughed out of repair shops here in Ky. when I mention "engine block heater and gas engine" in the same sentence...
Did the original owner get bamboozled and pay for something he didn't receive?...Should I give up my search for it ???
Well the original owner may have got taken. I suggest looking nowhere near the air cleaner for the factorry installed Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Eagle block heaters are mounted on the side of the engine in a freeze plug port. There was an option available for the 4.0L and had a removeable 110 volt plug. You want to look on the side of the engine block and look for a 110 volt cord or a freeze plug with two electrical connectors sticking out. You may have to order the electrical extension cord from the dealer and is VIN specific. You may have to call a wrecking yard or dealer in Canada.
