Has anyone heard of this happening?
Hi dnprall,

When you take your Focus back in for service, I'm sure your Service Manager or tech will be able to answer your questions about the fluid leaking from your block heater. If you'd like, I'm happy to get your case escalated; just send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name. I'll do the rest!

Have a great day,
