2008 mdx bought in Chicago. Moving to Nome Alaska. I will probably be parking it outside. What do I want to change to protect the engine and transmission? Do I need a block heater? A battery warmer?

Definetely a block Heater, maybe a battery blanket. But you will need a set of snow/winter tires, maybe even studded tires. You might run a thinner weight oil and have your coolant checked that it will not freeze and protect you in the negative digits. Once you get up there, I'd suggest you talk to some friends/neighbors or the local mechanic on what they would recommend for you. Have a safe trip!

Thank you Tom, that's very helpful. Any chance the basic 08 mdx (inChicago) came with a block heater standard or are they only available as options or after market?
