If you removed the distibutor you need to pull #1 spark plug and turn the motor over by hand till you reach TDC or top dead center. Put your finger over the spark plug hole and have someone turn the crank until you feel pressure then check your timing marks in conjunction with the timing tab on the harmonic balancer and the timing chain cover. Line them up, turn the rotor on the distibutor to where the #1 plug wire point is at on the cap and drop it back in you should be close or on. This is if when you replaced the timing chain and gears you installed them properlly with the marks on the gears lined up.

2001 ford sports trac brake lights not working ,


This may be a simple fix, where the wheel jack or washer bottle is located in the back behind the panel, there should be connectors for the rear lights, it is possible that the plug has been dislodged, remove the panels and check the plug connections. Good luck.

Engine rattling


Hello if your sport trac has a 4.0 v6 it has two timing chains. One on front drivers side head and one rear passenger side. The timing chain on the rear is costly to repair, which is usually the one to go out.

01 ford explorer sport trac rear timing chain diagram


There is a detailed explanation in the ford workshop manual for this, and some special tools are required to get the timing right. I would not recommend doing this without the special tools. Contact your local ford dealer, they might loan you the tools and the manual for a fee.
Hope this helps, Mark

2001 Ford Sport Trac - Front & Rear Timing Chains


The rear timing chain (or "cassette" as it's called in Ford lingo) is the chain that drives bank #1 (passenger side) cam. The front timing chain drives bank #2 (driver side) cam. There is a also a primary "jackshaft" chain that is driven by the crankshaft in order to enable both banks to be driven through a common shaft. The reason for this peculiar layout is because this engine is a "derivative" of the 4.0L OHV V6 engine it replaces. Ford simply installed a dummy shaft in place of where the camshaft used to reside on the original OHV engines. But above all else, the job you describe SHOULD NOT be carried out by anyone unfamiliar with this particular engine. There are NO timing marks on any of the drive sprockets, nor are they key to their corresponding shafts. To time this particular engine requires use of FIVE dedicated Ford/Rotunda tools that hold all relevant parts in proper position. Failing to carry this procedure out correctly, will result in the bending of ALL valves with 100% certainty!!! Therefore, it is best left to a Ford dealer technician to carry out. If you would like more information regarding diagrams, TSBs, and procedures with detailed illustrations, please e-mail me directly with your FULL Yahoo e-mail address so I can attach PDF files. Hope this helps.
