Squeeky Timing belt on 2000 Ford Ranger V6

My car has just over 60k miles and has started to squeal when the engine is in neutral or not accelerating. I bought belt dressing and when I put that on it quiets it for a few minutes and then it goes back to squeaking. Do I need to replace the belt?

What is the timing setting on a 2000 ford ranger 3.0 v6


The timing belt syncs everything in your motor to work at the same time, the spark plug ignites, the turns the piston, then turns the cam then turns the transmission...all have a certain timing that each one needs to take place and if that is out of whack your car won't work properly, timing belts should be changed every 50k miles. most likely won't be able to do it on your own because the engine mounts need to me removed in order to get a new belt on and you need a timing light as well. Spend the 400 - 500 bucks to have someone do it, if it breaks it could cost around 1200

Timing belt broke on 1999 ford ranger


You are extremely lucky as your Ranger 2.5 L is not an interference engine so you will have no internal engine damage. Both V6 engines use a timing chain and do not use a belt so you must have a 4 cylinder. The belt on your 2.5L should have been replaced at 120,000 miles or 10 years. All you need to do is have a new belt installed and inspect the tensioner and you will be good to go. You will need a Gates belt # T276. Unless you are skilled have the belt replaced by a professional.

Timing belt replacement interval


My rule of thumb for Timing belts:
replace at 60,000 miles, and every 40,000 miles thereafter. Having said that, I often let
cars go until the timing belt starts showing signs of wear (usually every 50K - 75K miles)

But www.autozone.com (register free at www.autozone.com) is recommending for your
car driving in "severe driving conditions" (aka normal stop-start driving) that your 2000 Sonata
have:
60,000 miles - replace
90,000 miles - inspect for wear
120,000 miles - replace
150,000 miles - inspect for wear

The 155 page owners manual (I found one at the link below - you may prefer to try Hyundai)
makes no mention of the timing belt at all.

Does My 93 Camry have a timing chain or Belt ? when to change it?


its timing belt. This car requires the timing belt to be serviced at every 60k miles. This engine is a non-interference motor, so the engine will not get damaged internally if belt breaks. But other parts externally can become damaged. Also at the same time the timing belt is changed, replace the water pump, idler and tensioner pulleys.

60,000 miles is a great benchmark for replacement. you need a trusted technician to perform this so no damage occurs. when in doubt, refer to the owners manual.

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain


Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;

When do i need to change my ford focus 18 tdci cam belt


It should be in your owners manual service intervals information,or i go by the 60k miles rule.Some cars now utilize a timing chain and gears like the Mazda 3,so it would be a good idea to call your local Ford dealer,and talk to the service department,as they can tell you the specifics as to whether your engine carries a belt or chain,and the service interval for timing belts.Timing chains generally don't wear out until around the 100k mark,but belts should be serviced at 60k miles as a general rule.
