None of the engines in a Ford Taurus use a Timing Belt. They use a timing chain that should last the life of the engine. There is no service interval for a timing chain.

SOURCE: replacing timing belt on a 1999 ford contour 2.0

moz-screenshot-6.jpgCAUTION The 2.0L engine is an interference motor. Extending thereplacement interval could lead to the belt breaking and severe andcostly engine damage. Care must be taken if rotating the crankshaft orcamshafts with the belt off, if resistance is felt, do not force themto turn.

SOURCE: How do you replace a driving belt on a 1999 AU ford falcon

start by unplugin the electric fans then remove the two 10mm bolts holding them in, the bottom of the fans are held in by a slot that they sit in so after you remove 2 bolts just lift the fans out. then you will see a tensioner i think it has 3/8 drive square hole in it( could be 1/2'' drive) just pull it down with a long bar with a 3/8 end on it to release the tension, while doing that slide the belt of,. if your car doesnt have a picture diaghram on the under side of the bonnet for drive belt routing draw a picture incorprating all the pulleys an how the belt goes around them. once the belt is of put the new one on exept over the power steering pump pulley, then pull on the tensioner again to release tension and slide the belt over the p/s pulley. these instruction are for the 4.0l falcon motor, the 5.0 v8 is really similar

SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement

go to gates.com and click on the Part Locator & Interchange link on the left, enter your vehicle information, look down and click the camera icon next to the serpintine belt, this is a diagram of how to route it. These engines have a tensioner pulley, it has a 3/8" square drive hole in it to release the tension on the belt, I start at the crankshaft and loop around leaving the tensioner for last, hope this helps, let me know

Do I need to replace the surpintine timing belt


Manufacturers recommend that belts are replaced on mileage or age (about 60,000miles or 5 years). For the cost of the belt it's worth it, if a timing belt fails it generally means major engine work and on a 1999 vehicle it may write it off!

1999 ford expedition - needs a timing belt, but mechanics keep telling me that it has a chain and not a belt. I just need it done and want to know stuff like - how much time it takes, how much it cost's,...


No engine used in the Expedition has a timing belt, they all have timing chains, timing chains never have to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt. On this engine replacing the timing chains for each of the two camshafts (2) cost about $500.00

What is Ford's recomendation (mileage) for replacing the serpentine belt on a 1998 Ford Explorer?


Theres no mileage to change just to check it, the way to check the belt is to look at the inside of the belt and you will see grooves in which the belt rides, if you see cracks in the belt then its time tom replace. the belt should be looked at every oil change it thats no time to check. hope this is helpful.

Timing belt on 1999 ford explorer


No engine available in any Ford Explorer uses a timing belt. The cams in all avaiable engines are driven by a chain, this chain has no specific time or mileage recommendation for replacement and in most cases lasts the life of the truck.
