Review of Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters - Fluid Injection Starter - KH33112

Today we're going to take a look at the Kat's Heaters ether start fluid injection system. This is going to work for 1.6-liter to 4.9-liter engines. This is going to make life a little bit easier by giving you a reliable startup even in cold temperatures. We're going to have a pushbutton activation system, so this is going to mount inside your cab, and that'll be nice for a couple of reasons. One is that we won't have to get out in the cold weather to spray that ether into our engine, and we also don't have to have a second person to spray that fluid as you turn the key. This is going to deploy that ether into your system.


Review of Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters - Engine Block Heater - KH30206

Today, we're going to take a look at Kat's heaters custom diesel engine block heater in the frost plug style. Now, this is going to be a direct replacement for the frost plug in your engine block and basically, this helps to make start-ups easier in those winter months. It's going to help to make the heating of your cab faster and just also prevent any wear and tear on your vehicle from that cold weather start-up.A lot of times the fluid in the engine block can get really thick and viscus whenever the weather gets cold and the temperature drops, and it just doesn't do its job anymore. It's not able to lubricate through our engine and keep everything moving as it should. This is going to help to alleviate that problem by heating out engine block before we go to start-up the engine.This is just going to replace that frost plug or core plug in our engine block and submerge into the coolant. It's going to warm that fluid to increase the lubrication and performance, and it helps to keep the fluid from thickening.


Review of Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters - Engine Oil Heater - KH30923

Today we're going to take a look at Kats Heaters oil and coolant immersion heater. Now, this is going to prevent a lot of problems that can happen whenever you try to start up your engine in those winter months, especially if you have a diesel engine. When the weather is cold outside, the fluids inside our engine can thicken up and become really viscous and they just don't spread and lubricate like they should. So, that can make startups harder. Takes a lot longer for the cab to warm up in your truck and it's just generally not great for your engine.So, this is going to prevent all those problems. It's going to just install in to the engine block or your oil pan and submerge in that oil or coolant.


Kats Heaters Vehicle Heaters - Engine Block Heater - KH11484 Review

Today we're going to take a look at Kat's heaters custom engine block heater. This is s frost plug style, 120V, 400 watts, and it's going to have a diameter of 28 millimeters. Now this is going to replace the frost plug in your engine block and submerge in that coolant to help keep your engine fluids from thickening. This is going to be a great solution in those areas where you have extreme cold temperatures, or if you have a diesel engine. Basically any time where you need that fluid to get heated up before you actually start your engine. A lot of times in that cold weather the fluids tend to thicken and it just doesn't lubricate your engine properly and it can cause it to be harder to start your engine, or impossible, and it can also cause some wear and tear.This going to alleviate that problem, this is going to, again, just replace that frost plug in your engine block, give you a little bit better part for that to help make the start ups easier, make your cab heat up a little bit faster, and just reduce that overall wear and tear on your engine in cold weather.
