Block Heater Location?

Last summer I was blessed with a good deal on a low mileage 2000 Ram 2500. However it did not come with a owners manual. I need to know the location to connect a block heater cord and type of cord is needed? Very cold weather is heading towards us and I'd like to be ready.

Thank You

The block heater is right by the oil filter. See if the cord is there. It usually is and goes up by the headlight. If you don't have the cord you can check at Geno's Garage.

This is my first winter with a diesel truck. I live in Arkansas, were forecast to get down close to Zero which is much colder than normal for us. It must be that global warming!
So far this winter it has not given me any hint of a problem. Just trying to be over prepared. What kind of fuel additive do you use in -15 weather?

Are you not running any additive now? No 2 stroke?

What is the 2 stroke doing?

Does the regular diesel additive not have sufficient lubricant in it? At what temperature does diesel start to gel?

Thanks

I would use some diesel kleen in the white bottle for cold winter's. I plug my truck in when it gets down below 45 or so just so the truck is half way to opperating temp and I have heat when I get in it.
