Pretty sure it is an option, not standard. I've had an 91 and an 01 F250 and neither had block heaters that I knew of.

If you bought the truck in a warm weater state the cord is not included. If you look just above the starteryou will see the element screwed into the block. Go to ebay and search for ford block heater power cord. I just bought one last week for my 2010. 19.95 delivered. Simple to install. Ford wants 75.00 for the same cord and 100.00 to install it for you. Also google ford block heater for a link on hoe to run the cord. Hope this helps. I drove mine to nebraska a week ago and went out to plug it in only to find out I did not have one. -17 that morning!!

My 2003 has the cord tucked into the bumper on the passenger side. I reach over the top and feel for it, then pull it over the bumper. REAL handy to have. Diesel runs pretty rough without it for AWHILE. You can double cycle your glowplugs and it will help, but only down to certain temps, then you are pretty much in trouble.

They are correct about that warm weather state stuff. My truck was sold in Missouri, and it was standard equipment. The ford dealer in Dothan was surprised to see a truck with a heater. They said none of the trucks they had on the lot had them.

Those block heaters are awesome when it gets cold out. Lived in WI for about 3 winters, I think it took me almost a week to realize I needed one, and then I installed one both of our vehicles, it does make a difference, more so on diesels, especially starting them, but they are great in gas motors as well !!
