Block Heater ?

If you have no block heater, will starting the engine with remote start in the Winter time cause any problems.

Had no problems with mine last winter a most the time temps were 10 to 30 above but the coldest remote start was -15 and it fired right up.

I had no problems with mine either, but I would like to install a block heater. Has anyone installed one yet?

I assumed they would be standard all my F150's have had them. I am ordering one to Ontario and although I have never used one on my trucks I thought the diesel should have it.

They should all come with one. Do you not have one? Cord will come out next to your license plate in the front.

I have one and I am in Texas!

I talked to the dealer about my ordered 2019 and he said they are still standard in Canada. Never came up as an option as we were building it.

Wasn’t standard on my ‘18 bought in Tennessee either. I’d add it if I lived somewhere where the winter nights got any colder than they do here.
