Do you have one? If you have a cord to plug the heater in then trace the cord. It could be in the block or in a radiator hose.

@011 did not come with a block heater I had to pay to have it installed. Then I could not use it because the ECM kept reading engine temp abnormality on start up and would trigger the check engine light. They got a fix and flashed the computer, but every winter, at least once, the ECM reads it wrong and sets off the CEL, I reset it and am good to go for a another few weeks.
