The Fleetguard heater element is an electric heating element used to warm the coolant fluid contained within the block of the engine. The warm coolant raises the engine block temperature to aid the ability of the engine to start in extremely cold temperatures. The use of this immersion heater will also warm up the vehicle faster. then it normally would in extremely cold weather. This Cummins electric heating element is installed directly into the cylinder block through a freeze plug on the block.

Cold temperatures place extraordinary demands on engine lubrication, electrical, and fuel systems. Using a Cummins Engine Heating Element Kit overnight or before startup can provide quicker starts and protect your engine from damage that can occur during cold weather starts. When air temperatures are less than 20°F, starting a cold engine can produce 50 to 100 times more greenhouse gas emissions in the first minute than starting a pre-warmed engine. Pre-heated Cummins engines also deliver better fuel economy and improved engine lubrication during start-up, reducing wear and increasing your diesel engine's lifespan.
