    Metal rod that heats up inside the engine block (conduction) to warm the engine up making it easier to start in cold climates.

    Here in Sweden, these are quite common and a Swedish company called Calix offers the type that does not need you to make a hole in the engine block. The heater is connected to the radiator pipe and warms and circulates radiator water through the engine block.

    I think it is doable (DIY) by yourself.
