The block heater has a electrical cord with 3 plugs that goes into a electrical wall socket, look for the cord, the block heater plug is usually somewhere on the back of the engine on the sunfire / cavalier models, 95 and up, the owners manual should be helpful to you, also the repair manual is helpful as well.

The block heater cord to 2004 jetta came unplugged from the car and I'm not sure where to look to plug it back in Can someone give me a general idea where it might go?


Block heaters are installed on the engine block in one of the "freeze plug" openings. The freeze plug is punched out and the block heater is installed in its place. The freeze plugs, about 3 on each side of the engine, are midway up the block- a round, slightly recessed metal plug about 2 inches in diameter that is driven into these holes made during the engine casting process. The freeze plugs will be found below where the exhaust manifold attaches-so if you are looking on the side of the engine with the exhaust manifold-look behind and just below the exhaust manifold. The other side of engine will have the same number of freeze plugs at the same level on the engine block.
Your block heater is probably on the front facing side of the engine (towards the radiator). It is probably shinier than tom the he regular freeze plugs, will have a small screw in the center for tightening when installed, and will have 2 or 3 metal prongs that your heater cord attaches to. Simply plug it back into the heater. Just remember: about halfway up on the engine block, from the oil pan rail at bottom to the top of block where the cylinder head mates.

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

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

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

I just got a 2002 chrysler sebring and i don't know how/where to plug into the block heater. I can't find where i plug in the extension cord.


Most block heaters have the heater plug routed out through the grill, but if yours is not visible open the hood and look for the bottom radiator hose, as this is where the heater itself should be located. You may have to crawl under the front of the car itself and look around by the radiator. Also, block heaters are optional equipment, your car may not have one.

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 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!

Where is the block heater on a 2000 Buick Regal?


I looked harder with a stronger flashlight and found the cord for the block heater coming from the right side of the motor (looking at the motor from the front). It was tied up with a plastic tie so was initially difficult to find in the dark.
