It should be sticking out of the grill in front of the radiator.. Look around that area, if it exists.

The block heater plug on a 4300 International truck is located just behind the battery. A heavy duty outdoor cord will be necessary to plug the block heater into an electrical outlet.

There are no block heaters on gasoline trucks. Dielsel trucks have them on the bottom of the engine block so that heat rises. And if there is one installed on the truck there would be an outlet cord in the grill of the truck.

It is located just above the starter, which is on the passenger side of the truck.

It doesn't come with one. You have to go buy it from the dealer.

No. You unplug the block heater BEFORE you start the truck.

It is just heating elements that wrap the engine and when pluged in it keeps the block warm as well as the oil and water

The Cummins engine does not come with the cord installed unless the truck has the cold weather package. Normally you have to buy the cord from the dealer. It will go on the passenger side of the engine. The heater is in the block behind the oil filter.

I had one of these when I lived in Wyoming. A freeze plug in your engine block is replaced with a heater plug that keeps the block warm so your fluids don't freeze. There is what looks like an extension cord you use to plug the block heater into an outlet. I had a 25 foot cord I ran from my bedroom window to the plug hanging under my truck parked outside my apartment.

Generally, the Block Heater cord is tucked into the back of the bumper - More toward the passenger side of the truck. If your truck is equipped with one, that is. Although, I can't see why anyone would NOT order it - Considering it's only a $35 option.

this truck is not equipped with that feature and is not a option

Yes you can, just don't forget to unplug it before driving off! I would advise not to do so, a block heater can experience thermal shock if plugged in while starting your engine causing the element to crack.

On my 92 Toyota Pickup V6 4X4, it is located in a different section than on the 4cyl. If you are looking straight at the engine, look to your right and down into the engine. Look for the LOWER radiator hose and follow it into the engine block. Romove the housing and this is where the thermostat on my truck was located

if your truck is in canada then yes, if not you can buy one for like $30 and its easy to do

User Avatar

Yes they do. Some do not have the plug on the front but the heater is in the block. If you plan on using this heater, you will need to buy a heater cord from your dealer and connect it. It's real simple! You just remove a cap from the side of the block on the passenger side and then connect you cord to it and fish the plug in end of your cord tothe front of the truck for easy connecting.

The engine is located in the back of the truck.

block heater is located on the side at the rear end of the oil cooler, follow your plug in wire and it will go right to it. easiest to see if you get under truck behind front driver wheel

User Avatar

There is such a thing as a 454 truck engine, also 454 passenger car engine.

User Avatar

It is screwed into the passenger side of the engine block between the starter and motor mount. You will have to get under the truck to be able to see it

Are you are talking about the block heater or the heater fan. It looks like a two part question. The block heater plugs into a house outlet. The cord starts at the front bumper area and goes to the block. A element goes into the block to heat the engine coolant. To trouble shoot: Power from the house plug in a lamp. Cord from the bumper to block heater, Inspect for damage & ohm out the wires. If all checks fine the block heater maybe defective. Now for the fuse. Is it blowing out all the time & does it go to the heater fan.
