FAQ: Why do I need a Block Heater? When the temperatures drop your diesel engine's oil and coolant become thick and viscous. Cold engine fluids are more difficult to circulate to the vital areas they are designed to travel. The use of a block heater element warms these fluids to much higher temperatures than the current air temperature. The higher engine fluid temperatures provided by the block warmer make the cold start easier in the morning. The use of Cummins Diesel Engine Block Heater Elements also helps the engine reach the optimum operating temperature sooner, which improves power and fuel economy. This allows the block heater to be more effective and provides proper lubrication to the engine and all its parts.
