HI All "V" lovers,

Here north fo the 49th we have to have block heaters to keep our engines warm overnight. My "V" does not appear to have come with one. Does anyone know where it would be installed on the engine if it has one from the factory / Dealer? They are usually on the side of the block in an antifreeze jacket? OH and BTW the "V" is the worst car in snow I have ever driven! I still love my "V"!!!!

If by chance it has one, the plug-in will be right next to the dipstick with a rubber cover snapped over the prongs. The heater itself slips usually into a cavity in the block rather than penetrating into the cooling system.
