Where are timing chain tensioners? I need to change them.Does left one have an electrical connection? Thanks


The timing chain tensioners are located with the timing chain inside the timing cover and usually are not changed unless the timing chain assembly is replaced. Why would you change them?

2000 V6 engine Ford Taurus. When the chain breaks, how much damage does it cause?


The 3.0L Vulcan engine in the 2006 Ford Taurus is a non-interference engine. Thus, when the timing chain breaks, there will be no piston or valve damage as a result of the cam and crankshaft getting out of synchronization. The "steam" you see is probably some combustion gases coming back up through the intake from any open valves that were trying to fire after the chain. broke. That isn't saying that there cannot be damage....you must look inside the timing chain area. There is the possibility (albeit remote) that there could be some damage in that area, more likely if you have a manual transmission. But you probably will only have to replace the timing set and chain tensioner to get it back up and going. Plus a few gaskets and some fluids of course.

How to set timing for 2008 expedition


I'm 99% sure that you can't set the timing, as it is controlled electronically. Even if you could somehow change the timing the PCM (computer/power control module) would reset it. Most engine have "variable speed timing" - all electronically controlled and it varies depending on the speed, acceleration, and load. As for the timing chain tension, the timing chain(s) and tensioner(s) are now typically controlled by hydraulic pressure (engine oil pressure) by a devise called a "hydraulic timing chain tensioner", also no way to adjust the tension. If there really is a need to change/adjust timing chain tension (you hear a rattle, knock, maybe a scrapping sound) it is done by replacing the fore mentioned tensioner and/or timing chain guides. Most techs, rightfully so, will replace all timing chains, tensioners and guides as one complete procedure. Changing all parts at once is normally appropriate because of labor time and cost is the same or pretty close to the same as changing just one of the parts, whether its a tensioner or the guides that is the immediate problem. It pretty risky to go to all the work and not change all the parts including the chains (some engines the chains can be reused, but only by a very experienced tech that knows a particular engine very well, but that an exception rather than the rule.) If there is a problem I'd recommended having a very experienced tech/shop do the work. Get a couple of estimates at least and believe it or not a Ford dealership with a reasonable hourly rate might be your best bet and even the cheapest or close to it. The Ford dealer will use Ford parts and the techs know their own vehicles. I have work for all major automotive manufacturers and dozens of Ford dealerships in Ohio, Michigan, a few in PA, WV, as a independent inspector. Ford dealerships are typical very fair to have work on your Ford vehicles. Small town "country" dealerships have a lower hourly rate, sometimes much lower, even lower than the "after-market" shops. (Get to know a shop and stick with them is how most people get and feel most comfortable that you're getting a good deal.)
Sorry I'm not going to proof read this I hope this helps. Nick

P.s. If you have a rattle from the timing components, get it repaired right away! If the chain "comes apart" it will most likely do very serious engine damage. (bend valves, damage pistons, even "throw a rod" (piston rod) and put a hole in the engine block. Other than not having oil/good oil in your engine this type of failure is the next biggest cause of complete engine failure (thousands of dollars)

99 expedition timing chain cover is busted from timing chain and the timing chain bar broke and fell in to the oil pan dont no what caused it\r\n5.4liter


You told us the issue or problem

Now what is the question ?

The chain tensioners got loose ,maybe &
I would guess that the chain guides broke,
because they are plastic & that is what they do
So off came the chain

Now you have a lot of work to do or
someone does

I have a 99 dodge intrepid that threw a rod and my father-in-law and I have been trying to time the car for a year now. We get number one piston up but the mark on the oil pump doesnt line up with the mark...


I'm not sure what you may be "doing wrong", but here is the manufacturer procedure for aligning the timing marks.

98f82f3.gif
^Refer to this diagram during step 12.
046beb2.gif
^Refer to this diagram during step 13.
95add8f.gif
^Refer to this diagram for step 19.

1. Align crankshaft sprocket timing mark to the mark on oil pump housing. NOTE: Lubricate timing chain and guides with engine oil before installation.
2. Place left side primary chain sprocket onto the chain so that the timing mark is located in-between the two (plated) timing links.
3. Lower the primary chain with left side sprocket through the left cylinder head opening. NOTE: The camshaft sprockets can be allowed to float on the camshaft hub during installation.
4. Loosely position left side camshaft sprocket over camshaft hub.
5. Align timing (plated) link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
6. Position primary chain onto water pump drive sprocket.
7. Align right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the timing (plated) link on the timing chain and loosely position over camshaft hub.
8. Verify that all chain timing (plated) links are properly aligned to the timing marks on all sprockets.
9. Install left side lower chain guide and tensioner arm. Tighten attaching bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.). NOTE: Inspect oil ring on chain guide access plug before installing. Replace O-ring as necessary.
10. Install chain guide access plug to left side cylinder head. Tighten plug to 20 Nm (15 ft. lbs.)
11. NOTE:
To reset the primary timing chain tensioner, engine oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
12. Purge oil from timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Place the check ball end of tensioner into the shallow end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Using hand pressure, slowly depress tensioner until oil is purged from tensioner.
13. Reset timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
a) Position cylinder plunger into the deeper end of Special Tool 8186.
b) Apply a downward force until tensioner is reset. NOTE: If oil was not first purged from the tensioner, use slight finger pressure to assist the center arm pin of Special Tool 8186 to unseat the tensioner's check ball. CAUTION: Ensure the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must bottom against the top edge of Special Tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.
14. Install the reset chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
15. Position tensioner retaining plate and tighten bolts to 12 Nm (105 in. lbs.).
16. Starting at the right cylinder bank, insert a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns to the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and tighten to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
17. Turn the left side camshaft by inserting a 3/8" square drive extension with a breaker bar into intake camshaft drive hub and rotate camshaft until the sprocket attaching bolts can be installed. Tighten sprocket bolts to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.).
18. Rotate engine slightly clockwise to remove timing chain slack, if necessary.
19. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat bladed pry tool to gently pry tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner is armed (extends).
20. Install the timing chain cover, crankshaft damper, and cylinder head covers.
21. Install camshaft position sensor and connect electrical connector.

Hope this helps!

Should hydraulic tensinor be replaced with timing belt - 99 outbk


timing belts do no use a hydraulic tensioner, that is only used on engines with internal oil lubricated timing chains.
