Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A block heater warms an engine to ease and speed starting and vehicle warmup in cold weather. The most common type is an electric heater that is activated in anticipation of starting the engine from cold, via a standard domestic cord and plug usually routed through the vehicle's grille for connection to an extension cord. The heater itself may replace one of the engine's core plugs, or may be installed in line with one of the radiator or heater hoses. Block heaters that run on the vehicle's own gasoline or diesel fuel supply are also available; these require no external power source.
