inline or block heater?

Post by luvmydeli » Mon May 16, 2011 11:09 am

Hi Everyone
We are relocating from Sechelt to Cranbrook in September and anticpating colder winters, I would like to get a block or inline heater put in my 92 L300. I don't really know anyting about them- What is easier to get installed? Do they plug in at night? What is the price point for each. Any reccomendations would be appreciated.

A real block heater is the best. A tricky install project if your bus is an automatic and pretty easy if it's a manual. Check out this step-by-step how to thread: ... tml#p31272

Block heater is the way to go. Fairly easy install for any competent mechanic. Easily picked up at any Napa store across Canada.
