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.

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 have a 2000 isuzu 2.8 diesel pickup truck previously i was able to start the engine with just 1 turn of the ignition... when during end of 2010 i experience difficulty in start up i check the starter...


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Replacing the heater plug is a good idea but the problem will surely be on the heater relay. If the relay is faulty it tends to be weak that it may not give the heater plugs enough heat to make the engine turn on a single start. Once the heater plug is replaced I believe you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

The heater only blows cold air,the radiator is full,thermastat is working and the engine temp is within normal ranges.


I've had this problem. 2000 GMC uses a closed coolant system. Meaning takes and returns coolant from and to the Reserve Bottle and has little air in the engine and heater systems.
If everything appears ok but no heat. "Air Lock" is the most likely cause. (With interior heater set to full heat) Solution; 1. Make sure water pump works. 2. Drain about 1/2 engine coolant into container. 3 Remove both heater hoses from engine side and flush heater core in both directs through heater hoses with garden hose. 4. Reattach heater hoses in correct locations. 4. Refill engine with coolant. 5 Start engine and run for 2 min., use caution when topping up coolant.
6. Most 2000 GMC have twist off caps with plugs located mid way on heater hoses. with engine cold, start engine these caps may be loosened to allow trapped air to escape. Do not attempt with engine hot due to hot coolant injuries. This may take more than one attempt to remove all air from heat system. 7. Lastly most 2000 GMC water pumps have a bleeder plug,( 3/8" square driver plug) located on the water pump. With egine cold this plug should be removed to remove any air. Reinstall plug with thread sealant.
Hope this helps cheers

I need to install an engine block heater in my 2001 Subaru Outyback/Forester 4 cyl. engine. Where does it go? Thanks. Ed!


There are several types of heaters. The easiest one is the type that that takes place of your oil dipstick. Just remove dipstick put dipstick heater in and plug er in ! Easy ! The others involve removing freeze plugs or cutting coolant hoses YUK :(

Accent engine heater?


Freeze plug heaters were designed for V8 domestic engines. It is possiable to install in your engine if you have the correct size plug to fit your car, but it will be a pain. I would return the plug and get the type that installs in the lower radiator hose. but if you insist on a freeze plug heater, they will be located on the back side of the engine block. Good Luck
