I used this dipstick heater in a Subaru Outback for the first time this past Saturday. The overnight temp was ten below. The black rubber of the electrical cord on the heater solidified and cracked completely. I had to apply electrical tape to prevent shorting. It was extremely difficult to get the long element into the dipstick tube. The second time I attempted to insert it into the tube, the element buckled like an accordion despite my being very careful. It is now in the trash. A complete waste of money.

I received the 20" Dipstick Heater and it only worked once. The second time I used it the unit never heated up. So as you can imagine my review is not a postive one.

I had used a a dipstick heater for a few years. I don't remember what brand it was but it did a satisfactory job. I misplaced it so I ordered a Kat's dipstick heater expecting similar results. I inserted the new heater into the crankcase and plugged it in. I came back a few hours later to check on it and it had burned out. Don't waste your money on this.

Dont waste your money like I did on this heater. I tried it on three different vehicles and could not get it to fit on any of them. It was to short to reach into the oil on every vehicle.

I bought this to warm the crankcase on my diesel loader. Worked once then stopped. Cost me $36.00 for one start-up!

By 87monte on February 20, 2009
after reading the reviews i bought this with some hesitation. i had the same affect as the other two guys. i pluged it in one night when the oil was warm and it didnt keep the engine warm but it kept the oil warm resulting in better oil flow for the first couple minutes of start up. the next night i went to use it again with the oil hot and the next morning when i pulled it out and touched it it was ice cold (0 degrees out). i tried it two more nights since then and it does not work anymore. next time ill buy one that goes in the lower radiator hose

Unit was shipped with a bent tip rendering it useless to fit any oil dipstick tube. I re-shaped it, plugged it in and it worked but wouldn't recommend buying.

Horrible! Used in my 1990 m939a2 military truck shorted out in the first 10 seconds sparks flying everywhere and it melted off 4 inches from the bottom so now I have to change the oil to see if I can get the piece out. A 25 QUART OIL CHANGE MIND YOU.
