Chevrolet Cruze Owners Manual: Engine Heater

The engine heater, if available, can help in cold weather conditions at or below −18C (0F) for easier starting and better fuel economy during engine warm-up. Plug in the heater at least four hours before starting the vehicle. An internal thermostat in the plug end of the cord will prevent engine heater operation at temperatures above −18C (0F).

To Use The Engine Heater
