If it's your 2002 you're talking about, you already have a circulating coolant heater, the so-called block heater.

Look at the photo in my earlier post. If yours has that orange cord coming out of the base of the oil filter, you already have the block heater and the cord to plug it in. You just need to find the plug end of that cord behind the front bumper and plug it in.

If yours doesn't have that orange cord, then all you need to buy is the cord. The heating element is already there. The special cord for the block heater is higher than a cat's back, but it's a lot cheaper that buying a whole new block heater.
