I am trying to locate my block heater in my 92 honda civic 3 door hatchback.


Not all cars have a block heater.....not to be confused with heater core..2different thing.. If you do indeed have a block heater, pop your hood, and look for a standard electrical plug somewhere...follow it to where it goes into the engine block...youve now found your block heater

We were told by Canadian Tire that the block heater is leaking.. we are confused if we should change the block heater or block core? when we had the water pump replaced we had heat for 20 minutes once all...


You block heater is a heater that should be screwed into the engine block.
Yes, it can leak.
You might need a new one, or you might need only to replace the gasket on the old one.
I'm in Florida, and I can't quite see the gasket from here!
Whenever you remove the block heater, or even when it leaks, you will get air into your cooling system, and then the heater will not work well, if at all.
Once you get the leaking block heater fixed, you will need to "bleed" the cooling system of that air.
How you do that is to run the engine at a medium speed with the car heater turned on full blast, and watch the coolant level in the radiator.
Be sure to keep the radiator full of coolant, and the water pump should pump the air out in about 5 minutes.
Be blessed.,

Cant find a block heater for an 06 Elantra


Very likely both engines use the same block heater. It should tell on the application chart with the block heater.

Location of plug in for block heater


Hello! If your Sienna was sold through a Toyota Canada Dealer, it will have the block heater already installed... You may have to hunt around inside to find the cord and pull it through the grill... All Canadian models have them... The coolant does not need to be drained to install the block heater in an 2007 + sienna. It uses a heater that slides into the block with a locking tab. Location is on the back side of the block itself by #5 cylinder... Easy to get to from under the van...The heater in size is about 4" long and about 1" wide...#5 cylinder is closes to the transmission on the back side (firewall side)...See photo below of a Toyota Block Heater; Part # (00113-00902) Cost $60

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!

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.
