Notes:

  • Do not use this heater with a 100-percent antifreeze solution.
  • Do not start your engine with the heater plugged in.

Start your engine easier and warm your cab faster in cold weather with this immersion heater. Heating your engine fluid keeps it from thickening and freezing, resulting in more reliable start-ups and smoother operation altogether. It also lessens the workload and extends the life of your vehicle's battery. And because starting your engine when it's warm creates less condensation in the engine block than starting it when it's cold, your engine will get better initial fuel vaporization, which causes fewer emissions and less pollution.


This immersion heater installs by screwing into your oil pan or your engine block. The power cord on the heater is removable so that you won't need to buy a whole new heater if the cord gets damaged. The cord can be routed through your grille for easy access to a 120-volt outlet or extension cord. If needed, a longer or shorter cord (sold separately) can be purchased to better fit your application. Make sure the heating element is fully submerged in the oil or coolant before plugging it in.

Video Transcript for Review of Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters - Engine Oil Heater - KH30906

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a quick look at the immersion heater. This is a three and three quarter inch long immersion heater that is going to help ensure a nice smooth startup and a faster heating and defrosting of your cab. You simply install this in your oil pan or engine block. When it's submerged in that oil or coolant, it's going to help keep those engine fluids warm and help increase the lubrication and performance.

Make sure that your fluids are going to stay nice and thin, they are not going to thicken up in the cold. And it's going to help protect against damage if your vehicle is in those colder temperatures. So it's going to help preheat your engine to help reduce the condensation in the engine block which can emit more pollution. So it's going to help reduce that and have fewer gas emissions. So it's very handy, especially if your vehicle is going to be in the cooler temperatures during the winter or if you're up north, this is going to be very important for you.It does include a five and a half foot long power cord that will hook up to your standard 120 volt AC outlet.

Now if something we're to happen to this cord, it can be removed. You simply take this washer off and it unplugs here from the unit and then can simply plug back in. So if you we're to have a damaged cord or something, if you needed longer length or a shorter length, you can replace that pretty easily. This cord can just be run through your grill so that you can easily plug it in to your standard wall outlet. It is constructed of a very durable, rustproof stainless steel, so you're not going to have to worry about it breaking down on you.Your thread size here to thread into your engine block or oil pan, this is a half inch NPT thread so it is going to tighten down, give you a nice seal there to make sure that everything is staying warm.

This is CSA approved for those of you in Canada, but it is made here in the US so you can trust that is made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust from products here in the United States. It has a wattage rating of 450 watts and it does come with a one year limited warranty from caps 00:02:42. And that's going to complete our look at the immersion heater. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

The heater works great. Heated 8 quarts of 50W racing oil to 230deg.F in about 40min. in a dry sump tank.
I need to preheat the straight 50W oil prior to startup on a cold engine.

Works great! I built a preheater out of 1" pipe and used your heater with a tiny thermostat for heating the fuel for my converted hot air furnace which burns used motor oil in my workshop.

Review from a similar Immersion in Oil Pan Heater


I have recently purchased this product as an experiment and not for its intended use. I purchased this product to heat oil on a small homemade quench tank. So far so good! I have not been able to get an exact temperature of the oil but it works for what I intended it to be. The slight problem was the threads. If you purchase this product for any fluids under pressure you may have to rechase the threads. I could not find any couplers to fit over the 1” NPT. Where I do not have fluids under pressure I was able to get one full turn out of the threads with no leakage.
