All today's Ford engines, both petrol and diesel, use 5w/30. This type of oil is readily available on supermarket shelves and the containers marked "Suitable for Ford petrol and diesel engines".
Most small vehicles do not use diesel engines.
Today's diesel engines do not use spark plugs.

Do NOT use Diesel fuel in a Ford Focus. The engine will stop running and you will have to drain the gas tank to rid the car of the diesel fuel. Gasoline engines are not designed to run on diesel. They do not have enough compression to cause the diesel fuel to combust The only engine used in a 2000 Ford Focus was the 2.0 which is NOT a diesel engine.
Depends on which engine it had... gas and diesel engines were available for that vehicle.
The F-250 and larger trucks can have diesel engines in them.
Ford began using turbo diesel engines in 1993. Eleven years earlier, they introduced their first diesel engines for light duty vehicles.
Diesel engines use propane to go faster, only gas engines use NOS
Petrol or diesel? What year? All today's Ford engines, both petrol and diesel, use 5w/30 'fuel saving' oil.
no i dont think you can use diesel fuel injector cleaner in gas engines
If the engine has spark plugs, use gasoline. If it has a diesel injection pump, use diesel.
Diesel engines have a much higher compression ratio than gasoline engines. Therefore, you need to drain all the gas you can out of you tank and fill it with diesel.
No diesel engines use the "heat of compression" to cause fuel to ignite not electrical ignition.
Only if someone installed a diesel engine. Most Explorers are gasoline engines.
diesel engines doesn't use spark plug but uses heater plug.petrol engines produces more torque than petrol engines but petrol engines produces more acceleration than diesel engines.petrol engine is faster to be heated than diesel engine.
The short answer is, Yes. Power Stroke is the diesel engine, made by Navistar International Corporation, that Ford Motor Company uses for its diesel powered F- series pick up trucks. These engines use Ford's software for engine management.
Ford IS NOT putting Cummins in their trucks. Chrysler Corporation and Cummins Diesel Engines, Inc. just signed a multi-year contract to keep Cummins engines in Dodge Ram Heavy Duty trucks. You can get a Cummins diesel in a Ford F-650 or Ford F-750. The F-250, F-350, F-450, and F-550 all have the Powerstroke diesel engines.
Locomotives use diesel engines thus run on diesel fuel, they do not use gasoline.
The Ford M2C-41-A is the nomenclature given to engine oil that is used in Ford diesel engines . The SAE equivalent is SAE 15W40 to be used in diesel engines, and 20W50 to be used in gas engines. Each manufactuer gives its own names to oil. All the different oils, however, are the same.
Diesel engines rattle. They all do.
Nothing. That is, literally nothing. It doesn't work. Diesel engines don't use spark plugs, because they don't need them.
Diesel and petrol engines work differently. Diesel engines use compression to ignite the air/fuel mixture, and have a much higher compression ratio than petrol engines, which use spark ignition. The conditions for ignition are not met when petrol is put into a diesel engine, and will stall.
Look at the fuel consumption for a VW Jetta TDI and the answer is obvious, even with recent increases in the price of diesel fuel. Ford sells a diesel Focus in Europe, but not North America - yet. There are other characteristics of diesel engines that make them more suitable than gas engines for trucks and large equipment.
