Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Ticking noise coming from the timing belt cover, recently had the timing belt and its pulley replaced two weeks ago. I had it checked out by the mechanic, only thing he done was tighten the cover. Well the noise is back again but louder.

Remove the drive belts, then spin each pulley by hand. You should find one that feels wobbly or rough. This is the component that is most likely causing your chirp. Usually it is either the water pump or an idler pulley. DO NOT run the engine with the belts removed- the engine will overheated and severely damaged!

it is possible on some cars to over tighten or under tighten but on your van i believe the tension er is spring loaded which means you cannot over or under tighten because the spring keeps the belt the right tension. and as far as $580 i think that is extremely to high. i don't think you need to replace anything

SOURCE: can't get the timing belt on
Loosen the two bolts that locate the spring tensioner and twist it to one side to allow you enough room to get the belt on, then release it and clamp it tight again.

does sound like the power steering pump.... check the oil level.. mechanics replaced my rack recently as well and did a crummy job letting the oil bleed out every other week. will never go to mechanic again... fixed problem myself but check for leakes on or around the rack and rack radiator. next check for leaks around the pump... check levels..

The timiing is set by aliging the timing marks on the cam with the timing marks on the crank -- then the belt goes on.
