Will Kat's Lower Radiator Hose Heater Work Well Enough for -40 Degree Temperatures


1997 honda civic 4dr sedan 1.6l 4cyl 1id radiator hose i live in alaska and am wondering if this heater would be enough to keep the engine warm @ approximately -40. we occasionally get temps lower than that but always have almost two weeks at -40. thanks!


Expert Reply:

There are a couple of things to consider. First is the 1997 Honda Civic going to be stored outside or in a garage? Second does the vehicle use a 100 percent anti-freeze solution or a 50/50 mix? The heater # KH16400 cannot be used with a 100 percent solution. If outside the wind could cool down the system as quick as the heater could warm it. The heater is rated at 400 watts.

If the vehicle is kept in a garage and is not using a 100 percent anti-freeze solution the heater will be able to maintain warm enough fluid.
