Question where to place space heater?

I live in MN and am having cold weather starting problms....surprise surprise.

I put a small space heater under the oil pan but wonder if there is any better place I would want the heat to go. I do have the truck pluged in.

as long as I am here, my truck starts in cold weather but quits after @ 10 seconds because it is not refilling the oil resevoir-could this be a oil pump problem?




97-f-250 4x4 ext cab



thnx

I would think the placement of the heater is fine since hot air rises. Don't know about your oil pump problem though, here's a bump for ya.
