you have a block heater. It's a matter of if you have the cord. What state are you in?
Ford only put the cord on trucks that are in what they consider "cold weather states"

The heater element is on the passenger side of the engine block toward the back of engine near bell housing. Now if you have the plug it should be in the bumper to the left of the left fog light.

When you order a truck from the factory, one of the options is to order the truck with a block heater. If I had not specified that I wanted the block heater, I do not know if they would have built the truck with or without the heater, and the cord. The option for my 06 was (41H) which was for $29.00 For that price I would think it was only for the cord.

This is correct. All 6.0L SD's should have the heating element installed. On you window sticker, you will see ENGINE BLOCK HEATER $35 -- or N/C-- in cold weather states. About $70.00 through Ford parts department. or go to http://www.powerstrokeshop.com/

Thanks. I have an 2003 with the factory heater, but I'm looking at trading it in on a 2006 that doesn't have one. Here in the Pacific NorthWest, I can't imagine who ordered a diesel truck without a heater, but they did.

My plug is behind the bumper to the right of the RIGHT SIDE fog light. I believe that's where they all are. Certainly, that's what the instructions posted in this thread show.

Thanks for the post.


Let us know how it went. I found you need to be a dang contortionist to get that dang cord in according to the directions. I finally picked my own route. If I has to do it again I would have the dealer install it according to those directions.

how can you tell if your block heater is working? i have had my truck plugged in for 3 hours already and it seemingly is doing nothing.. is there a way to test or even tell if it is working, or just eating electricity, or just doing nothing at all?


Thanks

. . . Now I am readin that it does but does not have the cord? Any assistance will be great! 2006 FORD F-250, 6.0 Turbo Diesel. Had a few rough starts over the winter and want to remedy the situation now. Thank you for any response.

All 6.0's have the heater as was stated on page 1 of this thread. Order one and install it yourself according to instructions (posted links). Some of the cheapest places to get the cord is the International Dealerships. Not sure what help you are wanting ..........

The "plug-in" for the cord is as described earlier - passenger side, behind the passenger tire, on the back part of the block, by a freeze plug. Also as stated previously, if you have the cord, it would be tied up in a bundle under the bumper by a fog light (which side depends on whether you are in the cab or in front looking at the bumper ..... sorry couldn't resist)

For rough starts, the following also help:
1. Install the newest computer strategy flash upgrades
2. Use 5W40 synthetic oil
3. Change fuel filters at beginning of the winter (if you are getting close to 10,000 miles on the old filters.

Its a low watt heating element. If its really cold out side your engine should feel a little warm. I leave mine plugged in when ever the temp is going to dip below 35deg. I may leave it plugged in for more then 24hrs sometimes. I can tell its working because the snow melts off the hood and it starts like its 70deg out side. When I was driving big rigs we always pluged them in unless another driver was going to drive it within a couple of hrs.:popcorn:
