If you choose the colant type heater it should just go around the lower radiator hose.

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

I need to install a block heater on my 2002 Yukon as there isn't a factory block heater installed. Where on the block do I install,and does it matter which plug location I use??


Gasoline or diesel? Not all vehicles have a block heater provision. There is a generic heater that you can install in the lower radiator hose.

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

Where is the block heater cord in my 2008 sierra gmc


Block heater should be under exhaust manifold on passenger side of vehicle in place of one of the frost plugs. trace the wire coming out of this to find the plug if in fact you do have a block heater. It may be an option on your truck.

Where is the block heater cord


Many block heater systems have an electrical box with a cover designed to blend in with the grill,
usualy in the lower left of the grill. Often this option is installed at the dealer as part of dealer prep.
so power inlet locations may vary slightly. Hope this helps.

Where is the block heater cord on a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Limited?


it should be in front near the grill, was there a block heater installed on this van? if you look at the engine were the freeze plugs go ,if a heater was installed you should see the element in one of the freeze plug holes instead of a freeze plug, if there is one then follow the cord, hope this is helpful, good luck.

How do i install block heater in 91 2wd 4 cyl sonoma


Hi ryan, yes my friend the best bet is to drain the coolant,as for the block heater,not sure which side for the sonoma but basically it is a frost plug with and internal element attached to it,once you unplug the cord typically there will be a small screw to remove, use a small punch or whatever will work and pop one side to roll the block heater so you can remove it,simple my fried,by the way a new block heater will come with installation instructions :) have fun and good luck ryan take care.
