a mechanic asked me this and I didn't know the answer.

  • What do you mean by "what type" ... and if the mechanic doesn't know, it's time for a new mechanic. Or was he testing you? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jan 22 '16 at 18:39
  • Do you want the engine code? – Zaid Jan 22 '16 at 18:40
  • He simply asked what type and said if HDi, its bad. Maybe the engine code would tell me but don't know where on engine to find it – richardstelmach Jan 22 '16 at 19:08
  • He needs an ODBII scanner which is an essential tool for success. IMO, get a new mechanic. they should know these things. – DucatiKiller Jan 22 '16 at 19:23

It's a little unclear what you're asking for, but your car has this engine: Ford DLD. It is a inline, 4 cylinder Diesel engine with a turbocharger, but it most likely doesn't have an intercooler. The 1.4 part is the "displacement" of the engine, and it is basically the "size" of the engine.

This model engine is referred to as "DV4 TD" or "DLD-414".
