Default engine block heater

I just bought my Turbo GT and it says on the sticker it has a $35 option for an Engine Block Heater. I can't find out what that looks like or what it does. I tried looking for a plug for the heater but cant find it. Anyone have this option and know what it looks like and how it works.

I finally found the little sucker. You ask where? I will tell you. Driver side almost directly under the hood rod stick holder and it looks like a three pronged electrical plug and I bet it plugs into house current and heats up the engine block on frosty mornings! Too bad I am in So Calif and have no need for it!!

Hey, I'm down here in Florida and it gets a little chilly sometimes. it must do the same in SoCal. Cheer up, maybe in a couple of years when you go to sell your PT, you can add that little feature to the add and maybe get a buyer that was looking for that exact option.

I understand from my NOrthern Bbrothern that the block heater is realy only neded when it gets down to about 20 degrees and stays there for a few hours. Not likely for me or anyone in Fla either!

You most likely would not need a engine heater unless it was sub 0 weather. They do come in handy during those cold days, but I don't think it will get that cold in youe area. Works great in the Colorado Rockies.
