TDIHeater Details:

Volkswagen TDI Diesel Engine Coolant Heater Kit is custom fit for Golfs, Jettas, Beetles, and Passats with the TDI 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 could be a fire hazard. Without any accessible frostplugs on the engine, a frostplug heater is not an option either.

Numerous VW dealers buy our TDIHeater 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 time.

These are brand new heaters engineered to fit exclusively the 1996 to 2006 TDI engines. The heater will not fit older diesels. 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. I have had people say it looks factory when looking at mine.

Terry Frost developed this kit because he was tired of cold mornings with no heat up to 10 miles, and unable to locate someone producing a heater that actually fits and works. Our kit ensures correct installation and operation. Tank heaters need to be properly located and installed or they will not work.

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 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
  • It must consist of top-quality components for at least a 100,000 mile or more service life
  • It must not have a check valve so no engine damage occurs

The heater is a ZeroStart (TM) Brand heater with Gates (TM) Brand hoses developed exclusively for the kit. All the brackets and hoses 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.

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.
