yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying to heat the radiator then it will not work very well to heat the engine, you would need a lot of BTUs to heat the radiator as it will shed all that heat to the air that is surrounding it.
It might be broken
no Yes, it can cause the belt to squeak and slip.
There are many reasons why an engine will sputter when revved. There may not be enough fuel getting to the engine, there may not be enough electricity getting through the car, or the computer could be going out.
Engine block heaters were optional.
No factory installed unit. OEM stopped block heaters after consumers reported engine compartment fires using block heaters.
The thermostat would be the first thing I would check.
I am not sure what you are asking about, but I am pretty sure all heaters work from the heat of the engine. The water flows through and cools the engine off, then is cooled off with the fans in the front (by the grill). The air then flows through this water (the fan doesn't cool it off completely, just a little but below the temperature of the engine. The air then goes through the radiator and into the car. I am pretty sure that is how it works.
Metal fragments in the fuel can damage any engine! They clog fuel lines, injectors (if the engine has them) and fuel filters, causing problems getting enough fuel to the engine. The fragments that make it through to the cylinders can cause scratches in the cylinder walls, the intake and exhaust valves. These prevent good seals and reduce the power of the engine and can eventually cause permanent damage.
Glow plugs and engine block heaters
What part of the engine? The ONLY way that I can think is that it got into the coolant system through a crack in the radiator. Otherwise, someone put it in the engine.
block heaters are kinda hard to install. you would have to drain your coolant and take out one of the freeze plugs. that's were the block heater gets put in to warm the coolant in the block.
that is the most durable engine on the market, people where getting up to 600 000km's + with minimal maintence. So the answer is no.
A 1994 Cadillac Deville that has an engine surging problem and is stalling out can indicate it is not getting enough fuel. The fuel filter may be clogged.
that is a bad head gasket or blown head gasket the engine needs to be repair
to help cool the engine.oil does alot of the cooling,but not all.its also the source of your car heaters heat.its a mini radiator that coolant from your engine flows through,heats up and a fan blows that into your cabin.
Have the vehicle diagnosed as soon as possible, then you can determine how long you can wait before getting it fixed. Some problems may get more costly if you wait.
It is the black plastic looking thing on the top center of the engine. They give alot of problems by wearing through and leaking water into the engine. <--- on a 3.8 but a 2001 century does not have this engine in it!
The fuse for the controls on the seat heaters in an automobile are relay switches that are inside the engine compartment on most vehicles. There should be a bank of relay switches, either on top of the battery or very near it.
no fuel getting to the engine on clio 1.2 8v
Yes but the power cord is an option.
Blow-by Engine is getting tired Excessive engine wear bad rings
What problems can occur from engine oil overfill
A gm 3.8 l v6 or 3800 cc engine cannot have antifreeze in exhaust without first getting into the engine. If its getting into the exhaust it may be entering the cumbustion chambers through a damaged cylinder head or head gasket. Also this engine depending on the model year may have issues with the intake manifold gasket, that can cause antifreeze to leak into the engine oil.
