SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Need timing marks for 2002 ford explorer 4.0




The Info I Have Is Extensive and Has Illistrations, I Need to Emali it to You As it is Very Large, This Is A Small Example Im @rejakwilson@aol.com

Special Tool(s)

  1. With the vehicle in neutral, position it on a hoist.
  2. Remove the intake manifold.
  3. Remove the fuel supply manifold.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the roller followers.
  7. NOTE: You must retime the LH and RH camshafts when either camshaft is disturbed. Turn the crankshaft clockwise to position the number one cylinder at top dead center (TDC).
  8. NOTE: Late build pulley shown, early build pulley similar. NOTE: The special tool must be installed on the damper and should contact the engine block to position the engine at TDC.

I have a 2001 ford explorer. is it an interference engine?


There is no indication in the parts book that it is an interference engine. Most of the time engines with timing chains are not.

97 ford exporer timing issue


There are three engines used in a 97 model. The 4.0 single overhead cam V6 engine uses a timing chain in the front and in the rear, one for each cam. The left side is in the front and the right side is in the back. You would have to take the engine out to access the rear chain.
The 4.0 overhead valve engine and the V8 engine only have one chain in the front.

Does a 2001 ford explorer sport have a timing belt or timing chain?


being that you most likely have a 4.0l s.o.h.c. engine you have a timing chain which only needs inspection around 100,000 miles for excessive wear on chain guides and leaking cam seals. this setup tends to last far beyond that mileage without any maintenence. if this was helpful please leave positive rating.
