Where is the connector located for my heat knock sensor

Confused on your question. If you are looking for the plug for your block heater, it should be on the drivers side of the block,towards the front of the engine. But keep in mind that a block heater is an option and not all trucks, especially non diesels, will have one. If you are looking for the knock sensor connectors, there are 2 of them and they are under the intake manifold. It will have to be removed to get to them.

No heat in F-150 could it be thermastate

-No. not the thermostat. Here there are couple thing that cause the heater not blow hot when you need hot.
1. Water line to the heater core is plug, or the control valve is not open due to broken linkage (Cable).
2. The vent butterfly stuck in cold air position.

Good luck

Hrabour pushing Tug, fitted with 2 Main engines 3516 b, One is non operationalsince last 2 Months Should have taken any special precautions except turning through turning gear. The other one starts daily...

White smoke on a diesel when it just starts indicates low compression. Most likely excessive ring gap until some heat is generated to expand the block and pistons.. It's overhaul time.

Old Lady here... Be KIND, Please! Where is the plug in thingy for the heater on the engine? We are at -9 and I can't find it. Thanks for any help.

The thing you are looking for is called a block heater and most vehicles dont come standard with them. Mostly people put them in after market. But if there is one, it will be in one of the bigger radiator hoses in the front. Probably on the very top or very bottom of the motor. Obviously look for a hanging cord to plug into. Other than that, i wish i could help ya. Maybe try reposting with the make and model of your vehicle. good luck

Dealer recommended a "block heater plug

engine block has a place to put an electric heater to keep engine from freezing in northern winter climates. The heater is optional, so they put a plug there when you don't ask for a heater. If the plug rusts out, you will lose your coolant, but I don't think it would be sudden. They usually start with a small hole and you'll see puddles before it goes completely. It should not cost a lot for this repair, even if you decide you want the extra insurance. OK?
