Unhappy need help installing block heater....urgent....

Hi:
I have a 2002 PT Cruiser and I just moved to Saskatchewan. In rough winter here, I HAVE TO have a block heater installed. I have tried really hard to find where and how I can do this, but can't just seem to find where to begin. Can someone help me please, as I can't afford $150 to give to mechenic. I can do it myself if only someone can guide me really good or even better, if someone has or know a video for that.

I don't know anything about them but if you click on this link and then do a word search for "block heater" there's a couple of paragraphs and a good picture that talks and shows you where to locate it. Click on the picture to make it bigger.

If you clicked on any of the links that Chris and I provided the poster, you would see that the block heater is connected at two different locations in the block that have access to the coolant. By plugging the harness into an electrical source overnight or whenever the outside temperature goes down below freezing, the two heater keep the coolant inside the engine just warm enough so it doesn't freeze.

You'd be surprised how any people down here get the heated seats option if available.
