Are you sure that your timing is set right. This will make it sound like this, also if the valves are not adjusted right will make alot of noise. The person who rebuilt the motor should stand behind his/her work!!!???

Will a broken timing chain on a 2000 Lincoln ls mess up the motor


Yes, normally what happen is it throw out the valve timing. That is, one or two piston could be effected here with its related intake and exhaust valves. What could happen, broken piston tops, bent valves or broken valves.


Since, the 2000 Lincoln has a 4.6 litre V8 engine it will double over head cams. This mean each side of the engine on this V8 has it own camshaft. Also, Ford could have installed a cam brake, that is if the timing is lost, it will stop all valves in both heads to a close position. I hope so, some 4 cylinder have this option.



If the engine doesn't have a camshaft brake then major overhaul. It would be easier to buy an rebuilt factory engine to install. A good engine remanufacture that rebuild engine for Ford, Chevy, Dodge, and other auto manufactures would be you best bet. In other words, they rebuild those engines the way Ford wants them to be rebuilt. Best of luck. GB...stewbison

Taking a 93 camaro front clip and installing it on


That is not even close to just bolting right up.If you want a camaro clip in your old truck you should use a clip from a 70 to 81 camaro.The subframes come out easy and are a fairly easy weld in as they are close to the same width as your truck frame.If you are not a skilled welder or fabricator you should just rebuild your truck front end,as this is NOT a job for a novice mechanic.A 93 camaro does not have a removable subframe like an older camaro they just have an engine cradle type frame that bolts up into the camaro not a frame that will work in your truck.

What engine of other cars could fit in Chevy caprice 82-85,


almost every rear drive drive full size used the 305 V8, so u can get an engine from a Buick La sabre, Pontiac bonneville and firebird, also Oldsmobile 88, and don't forget Camaro. any 305 chevy V8 will bolt in, also the 350 V8 will bolt in, this is a much better choice..

Still having oil coming out of distick


Whenever you have excessive pressure in the crankcase, it's usually a sign of severe engine wear. Typically piston rings that are no longer sealing well and combustion pressure is "blowing by" into the oil pan pushing oil and vapor out of the engine wherever it can. It's time to rebuild the engine.
