Does anyone know of a block or coolant heater that is an easy install? I
have a 1991 Cavalier 3.1V6 and I would like to add a heater to it. I have
looked at a heater that installs in the bottom radiator hose, but since that
hose is very odd, it will not fit. Are there any effective heaters for this
car that don't require an enigne pull?
Can't tell from your header where in the world you
are, so what kinda cold you're anticipating - but
I'm in Winnipeg, Canada. We know what cold is :(
Here, we have block heaters that simply replace
one of the frost plugs in your block. About 450 watts
worth, if I'm not mistaken.
What we have to offer to temporary visitors from
warmer climes is an oil dipstick replacement. Just
make sure your oil is up to the full level, remove
the dipstick, and stick this thing in. AC cord
comes out the top, and provides a couple of hundred
watts worth of heat to the oil.
