I'm not 100% sure of the mechanics involved, but I've seen some engine heaters mounted in the same hole as the freeze plug of the engine. The theory is pretty straight forward; connect the cable to the car in the evening, and a few hours (or so) before you are scheduled to drive away, the heater kicks in and heats the engine, making it easier to start in cold weather. Usually fitted with an outlet in the compartment where you can put a heater aswell so you have a warm and nice car to drive even in the coldest condition :-) -- Jonas ÷berg Systems administrator/webmaster, Department of Informatics, School of Economics and Commercial Law, Gothenburg University.
