I assume you don't have remote start so you can't pre-warm your Venue?

I'd help you, but I don't have a need to put one in Cali Weather.

I live in Canada where in the winter it can get to -30 to -40 Celsius in Jan/Feb so block heaters are usually standard. I do have remote start but if the Venues oil is at -30 or -40 it can be hard on the engine. The block heater heats the oil at night so it is easy to star in the mornings. I bought the Venue in a warmer province and drove it home 1500 kms. So if can find its location i will install.

TIA

Here is a pic of the heater. I'm not sure of it's location. Maybe someone on here that has one can follow the cord and post a pic of the location. It is a cartridge type so shouldn't be a difficult install, if you can find a compatible aftermarket unit . The Hyundai Canada website lists it for $217.58 installed.

Found it...easy job...the block heater needs to be coated with silicone grease and inserted into the well until the clip clicks to hold it in place.

I'm pretty sure a Kat's 118402 or a Zero Start 3100111 will fit, double check to be sure. I think the Hyundai original part comes with the silicone grease.

Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia here. I'm running stock rims and 185/65/15 tires right now. Picked up a set of 4 used 15" steely rims and bought a cheap set of winters from Canadian Tire, same size as stock. They were on sale and the reviews looked good so I took a chance. This will be the first set of winters I've ever run on a car so I'm sure they will feel great, coupled with snow mode I should be unstoppable...lol.

Canadian tire says these tires wont fit my 2021 venue... Did they fit yours? Great price if they do.

Got the block heater. So is it easier to get to it from underneath? I cant seem to see it from the top area. I had seen one by a water pump a bit further towards the front above the transmission but the hose is in the way.

This is what I see from the top

I think you are looking too far towards the front of the engine. Look at my pics in this thread. Although I've never installed one, Instructions I've read say the heater is located on the left rear on the motor.
