Canada Block heater

My wife just bought a new 2007 Corolla, and it has no block heater. Can anyone reccommend, and give a source, for block heaters that are easy to install, and will not have problems (such as circulation problems). What type does Toyota Canada install on a new Corolla?

C0140-00885 is the Toyota block heater, it is a dry block heater that clips into the rear of the engine. $72.00 retail.

Thanks. As I have been led to believe, the Toyota block heater does not warm the oil nor the coolant, but heats an air cavity that is supposed to radiat heat to warm the cast in the block, and then the cast block is supposed to heat the coolant; and it consumes twice the energy of the old imersion block heater. I want something that heats the coolant and uses far less than the 650 watts which is what I understand the Toyota heater to be drawing.

Just picked one up at the dealer - 400 w like any block heater supposed to fit in bore in block with supplied conductive grease so will heat the block. I just can't find that bore yet that's how I ended up here . LOL

Block Heater

I understand that the hole where the block heater goes is right close to the bellhousing on the passenger side of the engine block, about half way up. I wondered about the efficiency of a blockheater sticking into an empty hole heating the air, so with this conductive grease it makes a lot more sence.

If you bought a 400watt blockheater, perhaps they must come in different wattages. Do you have a part number for it?

Part number is C0140-00885 Keep in mind this was for a 2001 but it has the 1zz-fe 1.8L which I think is the same as 2007 ?? Retail was $72, the AWSOME parts guy at Toyota in Penticton B.C. said cost was $50, and sold to me for $61.

Was able to find the location after some more digging - it is on the LEFT end (driver's side) of the block right at the top of the block just below the head at the back of the block. The bore points toward passenger's side parallel to crankshaft. If its anything like mine you can't really see the hole but it is there under the heater coolant tubes. It was literally a snap to install, fits snugly in the bore with the grease around it and seems to work quite well. Good luck with yours!

Canada Block Heater

I just finished installing a block heater in my 2007 Corolla CE. With landphil's instructions re the location and orientation, the installation was a snap - literally. The heater hoses and a/c tubes pretty well hide the location. I removed the plastic cover over the head and injectors and also the breather cover to give better access. I plugged the electrical cord into the heater before installing and used a small mirror on a telescoping handle to locate the hole and also see where to rotate the snap clip so it lined up with the indentation on the block. I then pushed the heater and the snap clip into place with a screwdriver.
I used an aftermarket heater purchased from a local jobber for $36. It is a Zerostart no. 3100129 made in Canada by Phillips & Temro Industries.

Hi everyone. With the bitter cold now sweeping the Midwest, I think it is about time I picked up a block heater of some sort for my 2005 LE. Reading the posts above, it appears that Toyota offers a heater that actually heats the block itself??? Does Toyota offer a block heater that installs in place of a freeze plug and actually warms the coolant?

Found this PDF on a website: http://manage.toyotaap.com/docs/TOYOTA060208.pdf

It says for the 1998-2008 to use PU140-00900, does that make any sense?

I see one can obtain a block heater from MetroPN.com . Anyone try that website before?

Take a look at your engine block sometime, there aren't any frost plugs on it.

Yes, the C0140-00885 block heater (as well as others) were replaced with the PU140-00900 block heater, the 900 model is more versatile and can mount in various setups. The C0140-00885 block heater is still available, but is only listed for the Echo and Yaris with models that are equipped with a manual transmission, as the shift linkage interferes with the cord on the PU140-00900 heater.

I would also like to add that the C0140-00885 and PU140-00900 are both Toyota Canada accessory part numbers, and not valid in the Toyota USA system.

I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong), these are the Toyota USA numbers:
00213-00885
00213-00900

Although in some cases, I've actually seen them listed as:
00113-00213-00885
00113-00213-00900

So I'm not sure what's accurate, I think they may vary by area in the USA.

Jeff

Did the block heater install on a 2002. Took a little time to locate the opening. It is right beside the exhaust header where it comes off the block on the LR side below cylinder #4. Once located quick install.
