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,

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.

      Cigarguy seems to know a lot about the Landing from its Facebook post or driving bye. Seems very narrow minded about a buisness he does frequent.  Not sure if he actually lives in the area?   We frequent the Landing often!  The environment is inviting, clean, food is exceptional and consistent!  The service is outstanding the owners are alway there and working.  They operate a fantastic operation.  They've taken a facility that had a lot of issues in the past and turned it into a place we all on Lake Vermilion are proud to bring our family and friends!  The area and lake have had a lot of failures and "most" bar/restaurants are for sale.  Cigarguys favorite, the Crescent is for sale.  Bayview is open seasonally and who knows it's future.  Wolf bay is open seasonally. The Vermilion Club has shortened hours.  I would think supporting all the buisness on Lake Vermilion is what we should be doing before we have less and less options! Lake vermilion has a lot of options but only one crown jewel...The Landing!
