Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
I came across your response to someone else's issues with a 4l SOHC v6. You said send them their E-mail and you would provide the TSBs and whatnot describing replacing the timing chains. A friend of mine has one that is noisy and she doesn't have a lot of money to have the shop do it for her (cheapest parts I found was 450 without a new shaft). I am not real excited about doing this procedure, but I am sure I am capable as I have done a lot of serious car servicing.
A few questions, does the engine have to come out? (my guess is yes) Is this something that will inevitably cause a failure (I understand it is an interference motor) within a few thousand miles after it starts making noise? and could you send the pertinent info to my E-mail
Your help is greatly appreciated
I may be comming off totally half cocked but on my Ford Explorer Sport I don't believe there are any "Timing Chains" on this vehicle. I just have a Serpentine belt that ties / runs everything together. My "older" vehicles had timing chains to where I pulled the grille, radiator out to gain access to the front of the block.
Funny thing is.......I had more of a headache replacing the spak plugs on my Explorer Sport than the Serpentine Belt. (Go Figure)
