Custom-Fit Engine Heaters for Volkswagen diesels
We also have Custom Kits for a limited number of
Gasoline Powered Volkswagens
It was a cold morning in Minnesota well below zero. I turned the key,
waited for the glow plugs, and fired up my TDI. Of course the TDI will
start well below zero, but for the first 10+ miles of my commute I froze and
shivered. This is why I developed an engine heater for the TDI...

Volkswagen Diesel Engine Coolant Heater Kit is custom fit for Golfs, Jettas, Beetles, Rabbits, Touaregs, and Passats with the diesel engine. The 1000 WATT tank heater circulates coolant throughout
the engine for QUICKER STARTS AND INSTANT HEAT!* (TDI owners know how long it
takes to get heat!)
Benefits include: reducing wear on the glow plugs, starter and battery.
Oil pan heaters only heat the oil, and the engine's thermostat is in the lower radiator hose so a lower hose heater isn't an option. Without any accessible freezeplugs on the engine, a freezeplug heater
is also not an option.
Numerous VW dealers buy our FrostHeater kits in quantity and install them in brand new TDIs!
- The kit is compact in size, comes pre-assembled with all necessary parts, hoses, and mounting
bracket, to install the heater in an afternoon. Just add your own coolant and
- TheThese are brand new heaters engineered to fit exclusively the 1977 to 2015 diesel engines. The heater is about the size of two 12oz soda pop
cans, and fits nicely under the hood.
- The kit fits like a glove, and has good clearance around the heater even when
installing the unit. It will have a factory appearance when installed. We've had
people say it looks factory when looking at ours.
- We developed this kit because we were tired of cold mornings with no heat
up to 10 miles. Our kit ensures correct installation and operation. Tank heaters
need to be properly located and installed or they will not work since there is no pump
or moving parts inside.
- Engineered with the following kept in mind:
- It must appear factory, like it was designed to be
there with clearance around the unit
- It must maintain factory bend radius requirements for
VW coolant hoses
- It must have a low or no impact on the cooling system
- It must be mounted in such a way to minimize engine
vibration through the heater
- It must consist of top-quality components for at least
a 100,000+ mile or more service life. Our test fleet of vehicles have an average of 300,000
miles and counting on each of the heater units! The original prototype FrostHeater is on my personal Golf TDI with over 400,000 miles on it and still works strong!
- It must not have a check-valve so no engine damage
Included in the kit is detailed step-by-step instruction booklet with color
photos to ensure a trouble-free installation with NO guesswork, fabrication,
or backyard engineering required. We're known in the TDI community for our highly detailed
installation instructions. No photo copied sheets here. If you receive photo copied sheets you don't have a Genuine FrostHeater.
- The heater is a ZeroStartTM Brand heater with GatesTM Brand hoses developed
exclusively for the kit. All the hoses and most brackets come pre-installed on the
heater so it bolts right in and works. This is a No-hassle drop-in kit using
simple hand tools.
