block heater

I have a 2005 F250 King Ranch FX4 with the 6.0L of course. What Im wondering is what does it take to add a block heater? I just hate the way it sounds starting cold plus it takes forever to warm up and melt the ice and snow away.
Thanks for any information.

On a Block Heater for the 6.0L, should be one in it already. You will just have to get the cord from Napa cost around $ 20.00 then plug cord into block and then run your cord to front or rear of truck. Of course you can buy same cord from Ford for around $ 100.00. Check here for older posts on Block hearter cords etc, they will have the part # and location of where to put it all. I did mine this way back in early 06.

Part number for wiring harness from Ford is 5c3z-6b018-da. Runs about $80 from parts guy ed (plus shipping). Heres the link for the install:

DTS Articles - 6.0L Block Heater Cord Location and Routing

Pretty straight forward stuff.

From what I understand all 6.0 PSD were shipped with block heater element installed, however the trucks shipped to warmer states(i.e Florida, Arizona) were not shipped with the chord. If you reach in by the passenger side tow hook and feel around there might already be a chord. If not you can buy the chord from your local International dealer for around $30. If you need the part number let me know I can give it to you.

New to the forum and to Fords.( Couldnt find an introduction thread..

Looking for something to tow our 16 foot utility trailer and went a bit overboard! We just picked this up yesterday with 133K on the clock.Spotless CARFAX. Really great condition. Was a bit skeptical because of the 6.0 reputation..

It will be a daily driver, so I figgered this forum would be a great place to find some info,tweaks n tricks/ins and outs of this machine. We are planning a trip from Seattle to Michigan next week, so the excitement is mounting!



I read about the block heater being installed already..GREAT NEWS! I ll have to go in search of it! Where we are heading (the Upper Peninsula of MI) it gets a bit nippy at night.

Anyway...Thanks to the creators of this forum and be prepared to hear from a uneducated Ford owner who will be full of newbie questions!

Welcome!

When you goto look for the cord, look twice or three times! It took me three times to find mine cause it had never been used. They snug that sucker up there tight, and in the dark.

You might get lucky and have a brand new cord in there.

FOUND IT!! First I made sure a cord was there by crawling underneath and seeing the heater cord coming off the heater (almost directly above the starter) and disappearing into ??.

if you look in the hole for the passenger side front tow hook, and feel around in the right side of the hole, you should feel some wiring in some plastic corrogated "conduit". There was an extra wire zip tied to the conduit with a plug with a cap on it. Cut the zip tie and it will stick out a few inches out of the tow hook hole.

Good news for us, since Upper Michigan gets down in the 20's F at night.

Pretty much all of the early trucks had the cords regardless of where they were shipped. It started with the '05 models Ford limited which trucks automatically got the cords. You could specify it if you ordered the truck from KTP. All 6.0L...along with 7.3L & 6.4L have block heater elements; that's how Navistar built the engine.

Here are the only part numbers I know of that are the direct replacement of the OEM block heater cord.

Navistar 1686485C91
Ford 4C4O6B018AA

Personally speaking, I wouldn't put the China crap ones from Oreilly's or fleabay on my truck. If it's made by the original manufacturer, it should have "Canada" molded into the plug on the bumper end of the cord. But to each their own.

Welcome to FTE, just as a suggestion...you might think about joining your state's FTE chapter, just scroll down until you find your state.

Regional Chapters - Ford Truck Enthusiasts ForumsYou might find there is someone near you that's got a similar truck and can help you out if you have questions on how to fix something. And if the day comes, they might also have the experience to help you with a repair (it's how I learned how to change my injectors). These trucks will make an amazing amount of power...and do it for a long time as long as you take care of 'em. You can't treat them like a diesel of old. Between searching the 6.0L forum and posting questions, I'm sure you'll find everything you might have question about on the 6.0L. Don't let anyone convince you any other way, these are great engines.There
