Thanks for the reply Grumpy!

The guy told me specifically it was a red fluid.

And I don't know exactly where the block heater is installed. I always thought it was a heating element that attaches to the block and heats things via conduction.

Do some block heaters actually penetrate the block and have a heating element in the oil/fluid/whatever?

Will need to see what it is once I get it in for service.
