Use an electric oil pan heater pad instead. Easier to install, cheaper and more effective.

+1 on that. Mine works great. Just be sure to use heat resistant silicone to seal the edges when you do the install. Keeps dirt from getting in.

Where did you get the pan heater? This will be my first winter with my Q5 and i want to be ready. Bring that cold and snow.

Dealer installed mine before pick-up. Its a standard feature for Manitoba winters. But try Canadian Tire. Ask for Temro heaters.

If you don't know what it is, you live somewhere warm.




It's a heating element which is installed in the water jacket of the engine. "Block" refers to the engine block.
