Engine Block Heater. Winter is Coming!!!!

For sale I have a GM block heater and cord. These items are sold separately at dealers for a total of around $140 ish.

**SOLD***SOLD***SOLD***SOLD**

Asking $60 shipped to the lower 48

All mounting hardware is included and it works. I just "bench tested" it tonight by putting it in the freezer while plugged in. Extremely easy to install!! Just bolts to the outside of the block.

*NOTE*** This cord has a built in thermostat and will not operate the heater unless the outside temp is 0 ˚. GM designed it this way so the car won't throw CEL codes with cold starts.

As for fitment I only know for a fact that it fits a 2.2 engine. I'm guessing it fits all models of cobalts but I can't confirm that right now. If needed I can supply installed pics to help. It bolts on just below and to the passenger side of the exhaust manifold. Can be installed from above or below with ease.





I will take PM's in the order i receive them.

Feel free to ask any questions.

It gets down to -40 here in winter with windchill and I've never used a block heater. Diesels I could see using one but not most cars.

It heats the coolant in the engine block. Helps the engine turn over easier in the cold and reduces wear. Also helps get heat into the passenger compartment faster with the coolant being warmed up.
