Hi guys, this my first post. :hi:

I got a 2007 Escape XLT... and I can't seem to find the block heater cord. Now I am thinking, could it maybe not have one? I would really be surprised if it doesn't,my other car which is a 2002 Focus has one.. and since the SUV was sold in an area with harsh winters...I would think there is one. :confused:

The block heater cord was a dealer-installed item, so it could have been forgotten. Mine was behind the bumper cover, above where the lower opening is for the transmission cooler.

Thanks... looks like I might have to crawl under the truck to find out.. Is there a way to see anything from on top?

I don't know of one, although I have never tried to follow the block heater cord back to the engine.

So far from on top I haven't been able to see anything that even remotely resembles an electrical cord.Since it's been snowing here forever, I couldn't crawl under the truck either... with all the muck and all... :(

I don't think you need to crawl under the truck. Mine was behind the bumper cover.
