need help

Alright Heres The Deal. I Live In The Midwest And The Temp Is Now Down In The Single Digits. I Have A 99 350 And Was Wondering If Someone Could Tell Me Where The Heck My Block Heater Is At. It Starts Alright But I Hate To Put That Much Stress On It With Out Doing All I Can To Help It Out. Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. By The Way This Is My First Ford Diesel Used To Be A Cummins Guy. But Dont Let That Stop Yall From Helping Me Out.

Thanks
Cold In Texas

The plug might be wrapped around the frame horn behind the bumper or zip tied off to something. Best bet would probably be to look up from underneath, should be pretty easy to spot.

Welcome!!! Glad to have you bss! Hope you locate that block heater soon!! Also, if you plug it in to your truck, make sure you plug it in to the outlet too!! Ooops!! Also, if it's a switched outlet, make sure it's turned on! It's one thing when I forget to plug it into the outlet, but forgetting to flip the switch which is located an inch directly above the receptacle is another!! Doh!!! Then I get to watch all the wasted diesel come out in the form of white smoke until she's warm enough.....grrr!

Good deal - nice to have another from the Lone Star State! Yeah I bet you're pretty cold up there right about now....by Texas standards that is.

Did you ever locate your block heater? I know where it is on my '05, so I wouldn't be much help.

Welcome, bs. On my '03, the block heater plug is located behind the left-side tow hook, next to the fog lamp, inside the bumper. Happy hunting!
