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,

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
