Re: cant find block heater

Not everything does, they don't automatically install one. Look at the freeze plugs on both sides of engine, that's where they are located on most engines.

Re: cant find block heater

I wouldn't bother plugging it in until it is colder then 10F out. my 7.3 starts okay at -20. just cycle the plugs a couple times and she should chug to life.



Just about as bad my cousin the other day "so thankful for heated seats and a heated steering wheel in 40 degree weather!!!!!" lmao
