Mine is just behind the radiator under the chassis. If you crawl under you should be able to find it. Not sure if they all have them though.

Re: Block Heater Plug

My 2007 has it zip tied to the front axle, almost in the center (right to left). I used it every night while in Brian Head where it was -4 to -10 each night. Worked really well for the engine oil temp and radiator fluid. Both were in the mid to high 60's when I started up the van each morning. However, the transmission fluid was really cold and the van felt sluggish until that warmed up. Good luck and stay warm.

Re: Block Heater Plug

You don't need to have the heater on all night. It will reduce your electric bill if you get a timer and have it come on 2-3 hours before you want to start the vann

Re: Block Heater Plug

A question from the newbie I am: do all E350 have a block heater plug or is it an OEM option?

All diesels came with a block heater. I think it was an option for gas engines.

Re: Block Heater Plug

On my 2008, the heater plug is laying inside the center opening of the front bumper.
