The engine heater can restore the engine to a working temperature when your vehicle has been resting in very cold conditions. To use the engine heater, first make sure that the vehicle is turned off. Then, open the hood, and unwrap the engine heater’s electrical cord, which is on the passenger side of the engine compartment. Plug the electrical cord into a standard outlet, and let it warm the engine for at least four hours. When you’re ready to start the engine again, unplug the engine heater and store the electrical cord back in its original position.
