Re: DIY coolant heater install

Seems to work pretty well. Though, The GFCI cord I built for it is now tripping. Not sure if it's the cord or The unit has already developed a short. I have to investigate further when I get home from work.

Re: DIY coolant heater install

It appears I had installed the first heater such that it touched off on the block. This caused it to fail. I've replaced it and so far have been able to get several heat cycles on it with no problems. It is very nice to get in the car and not have the engine screaming while it warms up.
