Asked by Jul 05, 2016 at 12:08 PM about the 2001 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer

Question type: General

I put coolant made for diesel engine in a my wife's explorer by mistake. Will that cause damage ?

1 Answer

The only differences are the additives in between the two. However because of that fact you might not want to mix the two. That combination may cause problems with water pump seals. You should do a full system flush before switching to either one of these completely.
