Timing belt cover noise, ford ranger 94

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!

SOURCE: mercury villager belt tension

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.67d94e4.jpg

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.

What is the growling noise coming from my 94 civic motor


Water pump or pulley most likely.

Always replace water pump and pulleys when you do the timing belt.

Also you may have overtightened the belt.

NOTE, Kevlar belts will make a "whirring" noise for a few thousand miles after replacement, but not a growling.

Engine Timing marks on a 4.0 ford ranger on a 2005


Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

What does it mean when the serpentine belt whistles?


Serpentine belts are a great invention but unfortunately they drive everything on a modern engine which places a lot of load on them. When your belt displays any of the following:
-squeals when accelerating.
-chirps constantly
-squeals constantly
-squeals when wet or moist outside
-squeals when cold
-or any combination of the above.

The belt must be replaced, but wait... If you replace the belt it may stop for a while but then the noise comes back. This is because the old belt was slipping and has polished the pulleys or "glazed" them. So before you replace that noisy belt scrub all of the pulleys well with a scotch brite pad, or a good wire brush to remove the glaze and rough up the surface. Clean them off with brake cleaner afterward. Belts work by friction so if the surface is polished too much the belt will slip. If you have already put on a new belt and it is making noise, -sorry you must buy a new one again. Slipping on the pulleys will glaze a new belt fast which ruins it. Some people say you can apply brake cleaner etc to a new belt to fix it but that may not work well. If it slips it will just mess up your newly cleaned pulleys and you will have to scrub them up all over again. So do the job right and rough up the pulleys AND replace the belt at the same time.

There are a few other things that can cause serpentine belt noise tho so before you replace the belt check the following:
-The bearings in the tensioner and idler pulleys can go bad. To test this put some chalk or whiteout on the edge of those pulleys so it makes a bright "flash" you can see when it rotates. If the chirp is in time with the flash on one of the pulleys most likely you have a bad bearing in that pulley. Sometimes if you have the right tools you can press in a new bearing. Other times you need to get a new assembly. Other accessories can have bad bearings also so you may need to mark and watch them also. WARNING: Never stand in line with a moving belt or fan. If it comes apart etc it could cause severe injury.
-The tensioner can loose it's tension which will cause the belts to slip. If it is easy to move the tensioner then it needs to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned and belt replaced.
-The belt can become delaminated and part of the outer fabric cover can come loose which will "flap" when it hits parts of the engine making a noise. If you hear this tick tick tick noise and it seems to be in time with that printing on the belt then this may be the problem. Always install a serpentine belt so that the cover splice is pushed down by the motion of the belt rather than being peeled upward.
-The belt can crack or delaminate and sections of the inner VVVVV surface may break off and cause mysterious noises. If you see cracks in the inner surface replace the belt.

-Hope this helps

Fan belt on 1999 ranger 3.0 keeps jumping off and shredding at water pump


Check that all of the pulleys are in alignment and in the same 'plane' with each other.
Also, check with the belt off for binding pulleys or crooked angled pulleys that would cause the belt to jump off.

How to replace timming belt on a 1986 ford ranger 2.0 four cyd two wheel drive


ahh the two liter iron duke i had that same truck once great engine although they have a bad reputation for timing issues the timing belt is located behind the harmonic balancer/crankshaft pulley once the fan and crank pulley are removed you should have complete access to the timing cover. open it and its as simple as lining up the confusing timing marks on the crank and cam when you put the belt on and apply tension with the belt tensioner pulley.hope this helps

Your question states both 94 and 95 for model year.
94 and 95 ranger had a 2.3L.

  1. If not done:
    1. Loosen tensioner adjusting bolt.
    1. Using Camshaft Belt Tension Adjusting Tool T74P-6254-A, pry tensioner clockwise against spring tension as far as possible.
    1. Tighten adjusting bolt to hold tensioner in released position.
  1. Align crankshaft so number one piston is at TDC (top dead center) with crankshaft key pointing straight up and circle on crankshaft sprocket (6306) aligned with notch in engine front cover (6019) .
  1. Align triangle on camshaft sprocket with triangle on inner timing belt cover.
  1. Align diamond on oil pump sprocket with diamond on inner timing belt cover.

Timing marks on 1999 Ford Ranger 2.5L.


Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the inner belt cover.

  1. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts and remove the drive belt from the pulleys. Remove the water pump pulley.
  2. Loosen and position the power steering pump mounting bracket and position it aside.
  3. Remove the four timing belt outer cover retaining bolts and remove the cover. Remove the crankshaft pulley and belt guide.
  4. Loosen the belt tensioner pulley assembly, then position a camshaft belt adjuster tool (T74P-6254-A or equivalent) on the tension spring rollpin and retract the belt tensioner away from the timing belt. Tighten the adjustment bolt to lock the tensioner in the retracted position.
  5. Remove the timing belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the crankshaft sprocket and then counterclockwise over the auxiliary and camshaft sprockets, making sure the lugs on the belt properly engage the sprocket teeth on the pulleys. Be careful not to rotate the pulleys when installing the belt.
  2. Release the timing belt tensioner pulley, allowing the tensioner to take up the belt slack. If the spring does not have enough tension to move the roller against the belt (belt hangs loose), it might be necessary to manually push the roller against the belt and tighten the bolt.

The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.
  1. Rotate the crankshaft two complete turns by hand (in the normal direction of rotation) to remove the slack from the belt, then tighten the tensioner adjustment and pivot bolts to specifications. Refer to the necessary illustrations. Make sure the belt is seated properly on the pulleys and that the timing marks are still in alignment when No. 1 cylinder is again at TDC/compression.
  2. Install the crankshaft pulley and belt guide.
  3. Install the timing belt cover.
  4. Install the water pump pulley and fan blades. Install upper radiator hose if necessary. Refill the cooling system.
  5. Position the alternator and drive belts, then adjust and tighten it to specifications.
  6. Start the engine and check the ignition timing. Adjust the timing, if necessary.

99 ford ranger timing belt 2.5


sorry mate, you will have to remove the crankshaft pulley to be able to remove the cover to gain access to the belt.
If you can't gain access to the pulley bolt or bolts, you will have to remove the radiator, remember to save the coolant if you don't want to spend money on new.

1.If it is an automatic vehicle, remove the starter and block the engine at the ring gear while someone loosen the bolts. If it is a petrol engine, shift it into 3rd gear and hold the brakes while someone loosen the bolt or bolts.
2.Remove the pulley, if it does not move off easily you will need a puller to remove it, do not hit the pulley you will distort it or brake it.
3.Remove the covers and use a tippex pen to make reference marks on the pulleys and the block and head, even if you know how to set up the timing it is good practice to do so, if you get stuck you will be able to use the marks to line up the toothed pulleys to the marks.
4.Now remove the belt and the tensioner pulley ALWAYS REPLACE THE TENTIONER PULLEY the bearings will not last another belt service.
5.Pull the tensioner pulley against its spring and lock it up, this makes belt installment easier.

Install new belt and if possible replace crank and cam seals, its only good practice
