Do block heaters and coolant heaters work the same?

yes in a way. block heaters heat the coolant in the block there for warming the block up. coolant heaters heat the coolant out side the engine like in the hoses and radiater. and when the coolant gets hot enough it opens the thermosate and starts flowing through the engine..The coolant heater should be hooked into the engine so that it heats only the engine and the heater core. If the coolant heater is trying to heat the radiator then it will not work very well to heat the engine, you would need a lot of BTUs to heat the radiator as it will shed all that heat to the air that is surrounding it.

What makes the heater work in 2003 Ford Expedition?

I am not sure what you are asking about, but I am pretty sure all heaters work from the heat of the engine. The water flows through and cools the engine off, then is cooled off with the fans in the front (by the grill). The air then flows through this water (the fan doesn't cool it off completely, just a little but below the temperature of the engine. The air then goes through the radiator and into the car. I am pretty sure that is how it works.

Can metal fragments in fuel damage a TDI engine?

Metal fragments in the fuel can damage any engine! They clog fuel lines, injectors (if the engine has them) and fuel filters, causing problems getting enough fuel to the engine. The fragments that make it through to the cylinders can cause scratches in the cylinder walls, the intake and exhaust valves. These prevent good seals and reduce the power of the engine and can eventually cause permanent damage.

A gm 3.8 l v6 or 3800 cc engine cannot have antifreeze in exhaust without first getting into the engine. If its getting into the exhaust it may be entering the cumbustion chambers through a damaged cylinder head or head gasket. Also this engine depending on the model year may have issues with the intake manifold gasket, that can cause antifreeze to leak into the engine oil.
