Hey gang,

About to move to Chicago and being there for an extended period of time. Anyone have thoughts/ideas on if I should invest in an engine block heater to decrease the accumulative damage to my engine over time?

Thanks

Living in New England, forever, I've never had, or known anyone with, a block heater. I think you'll be ok without it.

Most of the heaters now are cartridge heaters that go into the head somewhere. Living 100 miles south of Chicago I would not bother unless you only drove short trips.

I have a magnetic heater that sticks to the oil pan...you have to insulate it from the plastic under-carriage cover. You can use silicone glue to keep it in place instead of removing it...unplug it! :nerd:
