Engine Block heater.

I plug mine in all night, and when I go out and start her in the morning the temp is still under the markings on the gauge... but it is heating some. Is it broke or is this normal? Also where can I get the cover to let less air in the grill I have the snaps on but no cover....

It is normal. It will not keep the engine at normal operating temp. It just keeps the engine warm. I forget what temp it actually warms up the engine too. I think someone posted it last year though.

But just so you have comparison my truck is the same way. I plug it in all night long. I never know when I may be called into work. But in the morning when I start my truck the temp gauge does not move. But it sure does warm up faster with the truck plugged in. It also starts easier too.


As for the grill blanket. I know some members were looking for some last year. If it gets that cold out I use carboard ziptied to my grill. Hey it works.

I am a snow plow man, so I am also afraid of snow getting in there and going threw my zoodad hole into the intake, so Ifigured I would look for something, I might just screen the zoodad and keep my blade up infront of the grill. till it gets hot then lower back down...
