Use an electric oil pan heater pad instead. Easier to install, cheaper and more effective.

+1 on that. Mine works great. Just be sure to use heat resistant silicone to seal the edges when you do the install. Keeps dirt from getting in.

Dealer installed mine before pick-up. Its a standard feature for Manitoba winters. But try Canadian Tire. Ask for Temro heaters.

If you don't know what it is, you live somewhere warm.




It's a heating element which is installed in the water jacket of the engine. "Block" refers to the engine block.
