I havent heard of a block heater like that but if it says that they are probably right .I would say get a new one that doesnt say that or just check with a temp gauge and see.

No... unless the soft plugs were corroded... you can probably get by replacing what is leaking.

If the plug was corroded ... it would be wise to replace all yje plugs. Rock Auto parts (kit) shows 6 block and 4 head sized plugs for your engine.

The are rubber plugs which can be used... bolted in turned with wrench to tighten... see url (link) and picture below.

Metalic SOFT PLUG unit installation can be facilitated by freezing the plugs and warming the engine block... (heating tool noted below). Also see the tool set for removing them... a MUST working in VERY TIGHT spaces,

Hope this helps.

When turning on the fan it only runs on high. Not position 1,2,3. This occurs on defrost or air cond. You hear no sound no other noises till high speed and it sounds normal. no unusual sounds at all. ...


A bad blower moter resistor can cause the blower to have high speed only. A bad fan switch can
also be the problem, but the resistor is the more common culprit. As I don't know the model+year
you've got, I can only give you a couple of the most common locations for the resistor block on the
town+country van style it's under the hood on the right firewall. On the cars it's on the lower right of
the heater box under the dash. And you know where the switch is. Hope this helps.

My charade is hard to start, what should i do,... some people say that it has a heater. is it true??


If you are refering to the BLOCK heater, maybe. Delpends on how cold it is there. The passenger area heater would have zero to do with starting.

Heater fan has stopped blowing. Just before this happened a lound droning/whining noiuse came from front of vehicle.


From you're description I'd say the blower moter has
cooked a bearing. Check fuse #1 and #2 both are 15amp. They're in the fuse block behind the coin tray
on the lower left side of the dash. They usually go first if the bl moter locks up. To do a quick test unplug the bl moter, located behind the right side of
the dash. Turn the fan switch off and replace the fuses. Plug the blower in and turn it on, if it pop's the
fuses again replace the blower moter. Hope this helps.

2006 Equinox codes kicking out when heater is plugged in in winter


My 05 Malibu has same issue. There is a temp switch in the plug on the block heater cord (raised round plastic protrusion) to prevent the heater working until -18c. I had inadvertently disabled this by replacing the plug on the block heater cord due to no continuity when I tested it (tested it on a warm day before I knew about the switch). However was advised that if I plug in the vehicle on a cold day when the vehicle is hot (example; just arrived at work and it's -20c and want to plug it in for the day) the same fault will occur. Solution. Only plug in after the vehicle has cooled and only when the OAT is below -20c. Not much of a solution, more a of a work around but there it is.

Block heater


go buy a zero start frostplug engine heater you will also need a hammer and a long punch to force out the old soft plug. in the kit it will tell you what frost plug to remove. and in what position the heater will need to be installed .
