You can buy an inline heater that installs into your heater hose and heats your antifreeze very fast and easy also magnetic heaters are available that stick to your oilpan

Use any block core plug that is easy to get at. Block heaters are cheap to buy and easy to install as long as you can get at one of the core plugs on the side of the block, done lots of them.

2004.5 duramax starts vary hard but will start after heat on oilpan


If you live in a cold environment, the engine oil will get thick and your truck will be hard to start. Look into installing a block heater (if you don't already have one). The block heater will heat the engine coolant and ultimately keep the block warmer.

Hope this is helpful :-)

Are the frost plugs threaded on 2002 Yukon GMC 5.3 engine block


As far as I know, it has regular knock in freeze plugs. I recently used a block heater that installs in lower radiator hose. Easy to install and use. I ordered it from autozone. It is available in a few different hose diameters.
Otherwise you will have to drill and tap existing freeze plug
Hope this helps

Cascadia 2010 what does fail 1 engine 1 263.1 fail 0 code 41.1 fail 31 means


I assume you're seeing this in your odometer display?
MBE 900??? There are hundreds of codes I don't know anyone that has them memorized. The only way to properly diagnose electronic engines is to have a shop plug into to it with the engine makers diagnostic software.

How to diagnose sound system lost all low en 03 town car


What makes you think its the Heater Core? I just did mine in a 1995 Town car, took 7 hrs with union breaks (lol) You have to take the instrument panel away from the firewall, once that is done it takes 10 minutes to change the heater core. Does your windshield fog up? Do you see anti freeze on the passenger side floor? Do you smell anti freeze? Take the 2 hoses off the heater core, look to see if its clogged, if its clogged, put your garden hose on the inlet of the heater core and let it flush.

P.S The shops will tell you they need to e vac your AC NOT TRUE! they want to get you for another 3 hrs.

My heater core went out can you tell me how to put one in because i really don't have the money to pay someone to do the work for me?


Heater cores are nasty and its' a ugly all day job. You have to take all of your dash board out to get to the core under the dash globe box in the firewall. Depends where you live but you can bypass a heater core by connecting the heater hoses together. Its' a quick fix and you will not have any heat at all but it will stop leaking. You have to get a shop repair manual for your ford then read up on the job. If you can tackle the job yourself you will save hundreds in labor alone. Write me back and rate me please.

Heater problem


I had the same problem with my car, it was only the heater selection switch though. It is the actuator cable. The cable itself only costs $20 but you have to pay someone to fix it unless you know how to tear your whole dash apart and put it back together.

Location of block heater


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

2000 Jetta Tdi Cold start


most the time they don't. unless you said to. i live in Alaska, and when people buy new vehicles they say they can't put them in. if your not familar with cars than you should have it professionally done. sometimes it can be a pest. on the side of your engine block you should see an indent a little bit bigger than 50cent piece USD. it is a plug. you have to purchase the block heater (which is just an element) remove the plug and VERY quickly put the heater back in. the block heater keeps the coolant warm and is through the coolant duct. all the coolant will immediatly pore out. if it is installed wrong you will have a coolant leak. you should have it done professionally done to avoid future problems
