If ur having problems with warming up ur car it could be a fan problem or thermostat problem. to get it to warm up a little faster you can try blocking off the radiator around 50% with like cardboard this seems to help alot with that problem.

the way puppies and dogs can stay warm besides there fur is they huddle in a certain position and the heat from there fur and what ever they are laying on produces heat that keeps them to stay warm or they can also stay warm by cuddling up to you and laying on your lap that produces heat to help stay warm or they sit next to a heater.

First of all, the "block heater" is actually an oil or coolant warmer. It will heat the engine oil or engine coolant depending on location installed, and works similarly to an electric water heater. The rate and maximum temperature that the heating element reaches depends on manufacturer. Circulation of the fluid it heats also plays into how long it will take to warm the engine. In general, the larger the motor, the longer it will take to warm and the more power it will require to stay warm. A 7.3L engine will have a higher volume of coolant to heat where as a 5.9L engine.

Most likely a defective thermostat.However,remember that there is a lot of metal in the engine block that has to heat up too.

Crocodiles are cold blooded creatures so they depend on basking in the sun to heat up.
