engine block heater

4 posts in this topic

I just bought my mother-in-law's 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 5.2 liter V8...In looking at the original info from the dealer it states she did pay for the block engine heater but she never used it for the last 12 years since she has a heated garage...I however, don't have that luxury and would now like to fine the darn thing but can't find the plug-in cord...Now I am slightly more mechanically inclined than a mosquito so some specific locations would be great if anyone can help out...

Thanks,

BHS

Passenger side of the engine in the rear frost in the block. If its there it should be easier to spot from underneath. It will have a brass/golden color rather than rust or silver color. If it is there the cords can get hidden pretty well in the see of black everything running all over. Find the element in the block and you should be able to find the other end of the cord if its there?

I had the same issue with my Ford. Is it due for an oil change? I was getting frustrated looking for mine and went in for a oil change and asked them to help me find it. Once it is up on the rack it's not hard to find. Best $21 bucks I ever spent.

That is what I will have to do as I have been unsuccessful.

Thanks,

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
