The block heater cord is right under the passenger battery. Or in that general area. The manual will tell you that it's right beside the power stearing, but it's not. Make your life easier and take the inner wheel well and you will see it right away. In Canada last week I have left my truck outside in -15f and it started no probs. And I actually forgot to plug it in. They start awome in cold weather.
Oh I see. I actually don't know the answer to that question. But I know a oil pan heater gets to be very hot. A block heater might not get that hot, but it does make a big difference @ cold start. Honestly @ 0 F you will no have any problems.
