Sounds like one of three things is wrong: 1) your block heater cord has a chafe or nick in it and is shorting, 2) the block heater element itself has shorted-out internally, or 3) the outlet or extension cord that you are plugging into isn't rated for the load (the 6.0 block heater draws 1,000 watts - the same as ten 100W light bulbs).
