Question about 2003 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I have a gross squeel noise coming from inside the font end of the Motor.something to do with the chain or sprockets for the overhead cam on the passenger side. nothing when idle or very mild acceleration, but terrible when there's a load on. .. Can I fix this myself and does anyone have a manuel or some procedures for this?('03 5.4litre 4x4 with a/c) Thanks, Dan
Check the idler pulley on the serpentine drive belt,it's mounted on the passenger side timing cover close to the cam gear,and could transfer the noise through and make it sound as if it coming from inside,and it's an easy check and requires no dissambley.I've had personal experience with this in my professional trade,I do industrial maintenance and repair and have seen bad bearings transmit noise down the lenght of a solid 8' shaft.Loosen the tension on the belt and check for play in pulley,spin the pulley and see how it feels,should have a smooth feel.Go to autzone.com and register they have a good online manual for your truck that you can download and print.
