Stupid Question

Well we got a bit of a cold spell here in alberta so today i found myself looking for the block heater cord on my truck. I tried looking in the manual but it didnt say where it was. I know i remember seeing it before but since its -46 with the wind chill i dont wanna spend too much time looking for it. The truck still starts in this weather and everything but i wanna give the new battery a little bit of a break at least. So if anyone can let me know where to look so i dont have to freeze my junk off. Its a 2004 F150 5.4L. Even if someone has a pic that would be awesome.

I found it. The reason i didnt see it earlier is because i was doin a little snowy off roading and that opening was full of snow and ice. Took a little bit of picking at it to open it up and there it was.

PS...God its cold out here.

I believe you
When I went to Fort Albany at James Bay to work 2 years ago it was -40 with out wind and during the day it felt like summer,
but when the wind came
ouch
it felt like -60
When we took engine apart the bolts stuck to your fingers from the cold
Plug that heater
you will need it in the morning
BTW warm up the truck for about 30 min
Your transmission will be frozen in the morning

It's -44 here in Yellowknife and the night has just begun Might want to think about getting a battery heater too; I always get a lot of cranking out of it when it's warm compared to cold. :icon_smile: Man, this weather is tough on vehicles...

Well at least your trucks started this morning. Mine was plugged in since 3pm yesterday and at 7:30 this morning I went to start it and got nothing.

Im sure it helps that i just put in a new Optima red top a couple months ago. The old batt probably would have had a rough time.
