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.

How to install a block heater into 2007 Chev Cobalt LS?


I`m surprised this didn`t come from the factory with a block heater already installed. if so look for an electrical plug like would be for a house hold lamp, somewhere in the area of the battery. if it didn`t come with one when you buy a block heater the instruction tell you were it is to be installed on the engine and position of element.

I am trying to install a block heater because I am heading north to Alberta.


Block heaters are installed in place of one of your freeze plugs on the engine. Drain the coolant and knock out a freeze plug to install. Directions are included with the block heater, including usually which freeze plug to put the heater in, and the orientation of the heater in the freeze plug hole.

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

2001 Jetta VR6, 76k miles. Transmission fluid leaking, occasional short-term power loss. Have gotten the impression from many that newer VWs need (expensive) VW experts. Can I take this to a friend who...


Auto or Std trans??

If auto here's the issue...

Keep in mind Auto transmissions don't like to be run dry.

Also keep in mind that the 01M Automatic you most likely have retails for like $4000 just for the unit, not installation.

The corner trans guy can't rebuild the trans. This is a special unit

Just to check the fluid-

Hook up a Laptop with Vag.Com software installed.

Start the car and go into the transmissions data blocks and go to block 005, this will display fluid temp.

-ATF temperature not above approx. 30C (86F)
-Vehicle level
-Selector lever in "P"
-If ATF is below 30C (86F) bring the ATF up to test temperature.
Test temperature: 35C to 45 (95 to 113F)
-Remove ATF level plug from oil pan.

CHECKING PHYSICAL QUANTITY

If ATF drips out of hole:
ATF need not be topped up.
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

If ATF does not drip out
-Remove plug from filler line.
-Fill with VW ATF (G 052 162 A2) until ATF runs out of level hole
-Install new seal on plug and tighten to 15 Nm (11 ft lb).
ATF check is completed.

CAUTION!
Too little or too much ATF will adversely affect transmission function.

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.
