I installed a aftermarket block heater in the lower radiator hose. I took the opportunity to replace both upper and lower hoses and flush system. Mixed results with block warming on '95 V6. In the past I've used soft plug replacement heaters and been happier with instant warm heater air on cold mornings. The lower hose may warm up the engine slightly faster. Hard to quantify. I've put the heater on a 110v timer so it comes on about 3-4 hours prior to my morning commute.
take it to a garage you fool
Do you mean where on a car is a block heater install or who do you take the car to to install?

I have a 94 pu 4x4 and live in Red Deer Alberta, and went one winter without a block heater. Not again. I looked into it, and the amount of work required to install one is way to much work. You need to rip out a lot of 4x4 components to get at the correct freeze plugs and then try to have the block heater seal the coolant. I suggest just purchasing a magnetic pan heater. About the same price as a block heater but all you need to do is stick some high-temp silicone to it and attach it to your oil pan and you're done. Mine works awesome and never have a problem starting after a -40 night
It's a BLOCK heater, not a radiator heater. It goes in the engine block, most of the time it goes where a freeze out plug is. You have to remove freeze plug to install it.
Begin by training the water from your 2003 engine block. Remove the wiring harness from the block heater. Remove the block heater retaining bolts. The block heater will come out. Reverse the process to install your new block heater.
drain coolant from radiator, remove one of the frost plugs in engine block, install block heater in place of frost plug, refill radiator with coolant.

In the block you knock out a freeze plug and install it. There is also a magnetic one that you can attach to the block if it is iron.

To normally install a block heater you must remove an expanstion/ freeze plug in tighten in the block heater. The 6 cylinder 4.2L engine unfortunately does not appear to have any such plugs. The V8 engine should have a screw in style block heater installed in the left front of the engine block just below the cylinder head.
it is where the frost plug is normally
I would not recommend that you try. A block heater is preferred.
