6.0 Block Heater

Did the 6.0 trucks come from the factory with block heaters like the 7.3s? Im asking for my dad he has a 05 6.0 F350 King Ranch CC LB DRW And if he had one where would I start looking for it.

All 6.0's have an engine block heater but not all have the cord. If it has the cord it will be behind the passenger side tow hook.

It will have a cover over the receptacles, so you won't see the actual receptacles. Good luck and if it is not there then you can get the cord from International or the dealer

Look through the passenger side wheel well it will be above the starter..

Can't see it from under the starter.

Here is a photo..

Note: Heater is to the left of the freeze plug.

I just went out and found it. Guess what I also found? My truck already had a cord. Previous owner had wired it way up out of the way. Apparently never used it and did not want it in the way. I had looked several times before and could not find it. Ordered a cord off fleabay. Guess I have an extra now. Thanks everyone.

They come from the factory tied up out of the way like that.

Previous owner probably was told he didn't have one..

All 6.0s have the block heater elements installed.....some have the cord, some do not. If the truck was ordered with the "engine block heater" option, it just means that the cord was installed from the factory. If not, you'll have to get your own cord and hook it up.

gotta say I love mine,using it tonite as it`s 32 degrees and at 5:30 when I leave I`ll be toasty.I did run a pigtail on mine so it`s longer because I have a large bumper. You can get fancy plugs at places like Cabelas or bass pro shops

I used mine for a time and while it did seem to start a bit easier I then installed an oil pan heater and wired it into the same cord as the engine block heater. Now both of them come on together for about three hours before I start it in the morning.

I can say that there is a huge difference when using both as compared to just the block heater. I guess warm oil makes starting very easy and the engine warms up much faster. I'm not sure if the engine block heater is even doing all that much any more, but I figured that using both of them provides some redundancy.

Hi guys,

I've been checking out all the advise regarding the block heater for cold weather starting. I have a 2004 F250 6.0 power stroke and am starting to run into significant cold weather starting issues. I noticed this last winter. When the weather gets below 40 degress (right now 18 degress) here in Ogden Utah, it would start ok but I had to let it warm up for a good 5 to 10 minutes or it would be sluggish and would not shift into the next gear properly. Once warn , everything was perfect. Anyone had this shifting issue when cold?
Now I have a bigger prob. Yesterday when it was about 20 degrees outside, the engine would barely catch then die out. This went on for a dozen start attemps until the batteries finally died. I jumped it and finally got it started. Sounded terrible for a minute or two then was ok. God, I hope the glow plug system is ok. Currently unemployed and can't afford a hit like that. Wonder if I'm still under warrenty? Has 63,000 miles and bought it new in Nov, 2003.
I'm definately going for the block heater option as I;m sure this will help alot. Starts right up when the outside temp is 50 degrees of higher. My big concern is when traveling in cold weather an no access to plug in the block heater.
Any thoughts (positive thoughts only please! ha ha) would be greatly appreciated.
Jim in Utah
