I finally installed a block heater. I was a little hesitant when the parts guy at the dealership told me they went to a new style. The only block heater I knew of was the type that replaces a freeze plug. The guy at the dealership said the new style is called a "cylinder heater". Well, I couldn't take it anymore. WOW! It was easier than the freeze plug ones by far and cleaner too! So here's the pics and my step-by-step directions because the ones that came with it were wrong:
kit comes with the block heater, bolt, cord & end cover, pull ties, and worthless directions
it's located on the driver's side of the engine block behind the starter
zoomed out a little and you can see it between the starter and exhaust
++ DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL ++
after disconnecting the battery the two starter bolts can be removed with a 15mm socket
slide the heater into the slot and secure with provided bolt using 10mm socket torque to 9ft lbs
isn't that awesome no antifreeze mess <--AWESOME!
reinstall the starter and torque to 50ft lbs
connect cord and route away from hot or moving parts and secure with pull ties
reconnect positive battery terminal
Yeah, it was that cold when I was outside installing it!
If this is an old post and/or the pics are not working, check my albums or email me. I'll leave them in there forever. Good Luck!
