The block heater wont heat the coolant up much at all, I was under the same impression that it wasn't working on our last cold snap (I'm in NB). But if your curious just open the hood and at the back side of the motor is where it goes in, you should be able to put your hand on it and feel that it is warm to the touch.

The aluminum block in these cars don't hold heat at all. I have found that they have a hard time keeping warm just idling with the heater on when it starts to get below -15c
