Did you change the fluid first before you put it in? You might need to flush it out and put fresh fluid in it.

each gear has a mark on it from the factory that line up with a corrrsponding mark on the engine some times they are hard to find but if you look hard enough you will find them they all must line up there is no margin for error or it will not start like now good luck Lindz

I BELIEVE THAT IT HAS A TIMING CHAIN. IT SHOULD BE CHANGED AT OR ABOUT 100,000 MILE. BUT IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY NEED TO BE CHANGED THEN, JUST INSPECTED.

SOURCE: At what mileage does the timing chain need to be

You change the timing chain now when your Jeep has indicated from a check engine light on. The timing chain in engines these days last as long as the engine will, there is a timing chain tensioner to ensure there is no slack.
When the timing chain has gotten stretched to much, your Jeeps PCM will indicate that with a check engine light on your dash and will be indicated with a DTC codes from a scanner.
So no worries about replacing your timing chain and keep up the regular maintenance, if you have a Mechanic tell you other wise, there just looking for money and your looking for more then just a timing chain being replaced.
You can bet that chain, chain tensioner, timing gears, water pump and might even throw in a cam replacement will be in his recommendation.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

My 2002 Jeep Sahara, 88,000 miles, was making extreme tapping noise for 2 weeks - now nothing. Was told needed to replace lifters! however, no noise for 1 month after inspection. Why no noise now? Am I...


If the noise is gone,the lifter is unstuck,don't worry about it.I would run 2 cans of a high detergent additive to the oil just to clean up the lifters before the next oil change and use a high quality oil on the next oil change.
Rislone makes a good product for a lifter cleaning. PUT 2 CANS IN THE OIL.

belts at 60k miles
chains when they make noise, if changd oil every 5k, the chain can go
200k or way more.
filthy oil kills chains and the whole engine for that matter.

Ford sport trac, 4.0 dry start , and then continue ticking sound ,ive been told timimg chain


how many miles on the vehicle? does the noise quieten down when the engine RPMs come up? timing chain is very likely if you have over 150,000 miles. lifter noise is a more common problem. the lifters will tend to quieten down as the RPMs come up due to more oil pressure.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee with 141K miles on it. When do I have the timing chain changed?


Depending upon which engine you have and how hard you run it and how often it's serviced (and what kind of oil you use) Most chains will go about 160-180 thousand miles before they stretch enough to put the valve timing out of phase enough to be very noticeable. I don't remember if Jeep ever used a nylon toothed cam gear except for the older ones with GM v6 engines. If you don't have a nylon gear, I have never seen a chain actually break, usually after it stretches, it rides up on the gear teeth and shears them off. That won't happen with a steel gear.(Check with dealer parts dept...they should know what is in there) Therefore, it's likely that either way you have about twenty thousand miles left before you need to worry much about it.
