Engine Block Heater Installation Video

This video provides a detailed demonstration of how to install the Vvkb engine block heater. Simply follow the steps shown in the video, and you'll be able to install it with ease.

Engine Cooling System Working Principles

This video demonstrates how the engine's cooling system cools the engine block during operation. In contrast, the engine block heater works in the opposite way: it transfers heat to the engine, preheating the block before it starts.

Vvkb Engine Block Heater Installation Steps

  1. Select the Appropriate Heater Hose: Choose a hose that matches the diameter and length required for your heater installation.
  2. Drain the Coolant: Carefully release the coolant from the cooling system into a container for reuse.
  3. Cut the Heater Hose: Determine the correct length of the heater hose needed and cut it accordingly.
  4. Connect the Heater Inlet: Attach the heater’s inlet to the hose segment that is further from the engine.
  5. Secure the Hose Clamps: Tighten the hose clamps to ensure a secure and leak-free connection at the heater inlet.
  6. Add Coolant: Slowly add coolant until it starts to overflow from the heater outlet.
  7. Shake the Heater: Gently shake the heater to remove any trapped air inside the heater and its hoses.
  8. Connect the Heater Outlet: Attach the heater’s outlet to the hose segment that is closer to the engine.
  9. Secure the Hose Clamps: Tighten the hose clamps at the heater outlet to ensure they are secure.
  10. Continue Adding Coolant: Keep adding coolant until the radiator is full.
  11. Run the Engine: Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes to fully expel any excess air in the cooling system.
  12. Top Off the Coolant: If the coolant level has dropped, continue adding coolant until the radiator is full.
  13. Check for Leaks: Inspect all connections around the heater for any signs of coolant leakage.
  14. Mount the Heater Securely: Install the heater at the lowest part of the vehicle, ensuring it is away from any fuel lines.
  15. Position the Heater Plug: Place the heater plug in a location that is easily accessible for future use.

What is an engine block heater, and how does it work?

An engine block heater warms the engine's coolant or oil, making cold starts easier and reducing engine wear. The heater is plugged into an external power source, and the heat it generates ensures optimal starting conditions, particularly in frigid weather.

How does an engine block heater work?

It is usually plugged into a household AC power outlet, with an electric heating element, directly heating the engine block or engine coolant, and then through the built-in water pump, the heated coolant to the engine block.

Is installing an engine block heater necessary?

While not necessary for all vehicles, it is highly recommended in regions where temperatures frequently drop below freezing to ease starting and reduce cold-start wear.
