As long as the plug wire isn't running Downhill from the car to the wall, then you're fine.bfocused said:Thanks for the tip, I checked it out, and the plug is about 4 inches from the top of the radiator support. So I guess it will be ok. but you got me a little parinoid now............lol
a block heater can't economically keep your engine block at operating temps all fricken night longbfocused said:Well, it works.... not quite what I expected, but it was not a cold start. I checked the temp gauge before I started it and it did move off the total cold left position. Car started right up, and I had heat within 3 mins. I was expecting it to be warmer. But, hey it works and saves wear and tare on the engine. And the heated seats are real nice. It was 1 degree when I started the car this am.
just outta curiosity, if it was warm enough for melting snow, why the hell was it plugged in in the first place? [hihi]knightm3 said:Make sure you have the block heater plugged in somewhere around waist level. A friend of mine fried his when melting snow ran down the plug wire and shorted the heater and socket out.
