SOURCE: Block heater for 98 dodge neon

Well the block heater itself is usually way under the engine where you can't see it, so I'm thinking you want the plug & cord that makes it work so you can plug it in. My 95 neon had it coiled up laying near the top of the fender under the hood on drivers side, if i remember correctly. It had a black cap over the plug which made it hard to find sometimes, even though I thought I knew where it was. Sometimes it would fall down behind or beside the engine controller.(gray looking computer box) I was always looking for a shiny plug-in type end but it was covered with a hard to see black little cap over it. I used a flashlight, and went along the top of the fenders until I spotted what looked similar to a black extension cord, then followed it to the end, and that's how I found it most times. Try going along drivers side top of fender first, then passenger fender, and then along the front, and maybe even attached in behind grille at front of car sometimes.

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.

Fallow the "UPPER" Radiator Hose from the Radiator to the Engine Cylinder Head, The Thermostat Housing is the Unit that the UPPER Radiator Hose Connects to. Theres is 1 BOLT (TOP) & 1 NUT (BOTTOM) that you Remove to Gain Access to the Thermostat itself. Hoping this Helps you out There . Have A Great Day.

If you have a block heater, you will find a plug (like for an appliance) usually somewhere near in or under front of car.

Hi, I've moved up north,winters are real cold here. And everybody uses block heaters at night. I looked for a plug for it, didn't find it. Kia Rio 5, 2008. Does anybody have info where it is?


The block heater does not come standard with a new car. It is an option that usually installs in a freeze plug location. If your Rio is so equipped it will have the plug located near the front grill.

A qualified automotive service center needs to do this installation. The integrity of the cooling system requires a secure installation preventing a premature failure.

They are usually around 400 watts and I would suggest a timer.

Depending on the temperature of your home location it is not always a necessity.

The choice of lubrication oil and CCA (cold crank amps) battery is critical to ensure below freezing (sub zero) starts. Realize that the Rio will be parked at times in blistery below freezing temperatures with out the power available for the block heater!!!

Hope this helps?

Block heater


what did you take your car in for ? was it a antifreeze leak ? if so, the block heater could of been leaking and they took it out.and replaced it with.a freeze plug ? if not, jack your car up, look above your oil pan on the bottom of your engine sides, there are these round plugs in your block, one for every piston, one of these is where your block heater is, you will see a wire coming out of it, follow this wire and you should find the other end of it most of the time, the plug end is around the front head lights, radiator area

Where is the drain plug exactly on a 2003 kia rio?


For the 1.6l engines:

Looking at the engine from the front end (e.g. from the right fender), the drain plug is on the left below cylinder #1.

From beneath the car, looking towards the front of the vehicle, you'll find it on the right had end of the engine block, at the back (nearest the passenger compartment. (see image below)

You'll need a 17mm wrench or socket.

The Oil filter is above it and towards the center of the block.
