SOURCE: 2001 ford Explorer - engine rattling - is that timing belt/chain

What engine is this? if it is the 4.0L then talk to the dealer there is a recall on the camshaft drive chain hydraulic tensors, these will cause a rattle noise.

SOURCE: Loud tick & knocking for a 1zzfe engine from 2001 toyota corolla

from what you are describing it sounds like a lifter/valve issue, i am a ford man i don't know if toyota do the same thing, but if they use inserts for the valve seats it is possible a valve seat has been dropping just has not dropped fully out to cause engine damage. buying a new engine will actually cost you less than an overhaul/rebuild anymore. the parts will cost you almost as much as a new motor will with all the machining that maybe needed.

Some of those things are only sold as an assembly. Try independent parts stores, and you may be able to get what you need for a better price.

Ford has had issues with alignment, so after you are done, inspect very carefully to be sure all pulleys are lined up. Special tools may be required if they are not....

How to set timing for 2008 expedition


I'm 99% sure that you can't set the timing, as it is controlled electronically. Even if you could somehow change the timing the PCM (computer/power control module) would reset it. Most engine have "variable speed timing" - all electronically controlled and it varies depending on the speed, acceleration, and load. As for the timing chain tension, the timing chain(s) and tensioner(s) are now typically controlled by hydraulic pressure (engine oil pressure) by a devise called a "hydraulic timing chain tensioner", also no way to adjust the tension. If there really is a need to change/adjust timing chain tension (you hear a rattle, knock, maybe a scrapping sound) it is done by replacing the fore mentioned tensioner and/or timing chain guides. Most techs, rightfully so, will replace all timing chains, tensioners and guides as one complete procedure. Changing all parts at once is normally appropriate because of labor time and cost is the same or pretty close to the same as changing just one of the parts, whether its a tensioner or the guides that is the immediate problem. It pretty risky to go to all the work and not change all the parts including the chains (some engines the chains can be reused, but only by a very experienced tech that knows a particular engine very well, but that an exception rather than the rule.) If there is a problem I'd recommended having a very experienced tech/shop do the work. Get a couple of estimates at least and believe it or not a Ford dealership with a reasonable hourly rate might be your best bet and even the cheapest or close to it. The Ford dealer will use Ford parts and the techs know their own vehicles. I have work for all major automotive manufacturers and dozens of Ford dealerships in Ohio, Michigan, a few in PA, WV, as a independent inspector. Ford dealerships are typical very fair to have work on your Ford vehicles. Small town "country" dealerships have a lower hourly rate, sometimes much lower, even lower than the "after-market" shops. (Get to know a shop and stick with them is how most people get and feel most comfortable that you're getting a good deal.)
Sorry I'm not going to proof read this I hope this helps. Nick

P.s. If you have a rattle from the timing components, get it repaired right away! If the chain "comes apart" it will most likely do very serious engine damage. (bend valves, damage pistons, even "throw a rod" (piston rod) and put a hole in the engine block. Other than not having oil/good oil in your engine this type of failure is the next biggest cause of complete engine failure (thousands of dollars)

Probably is the tensioners,common on the 2000 and 2001 cars. Chains and tensioners need replacing.

Timing chain


You need to replace the timing chain guides/tensioners. 200-2003 crown vics are prone to that problem. 2004 and up are all okay (with new modified design.)

1994 toyota pickup rattles at low speeds (~15-19 mph).


Check for loose heat shields the cover the exhaust. I find this is the source of many rattles. They are made of sheet metal and if they are not clip or tightened down the low vibration frequency when the car is running at slow speed will cause them the hit the exhaust pipe/ front mainfold.

2000 ford explorer sport 4x4 timing timing chain rattling. have heard that changing to a synthetic 5w30 oil with wix filter will quieten it down. any feedback or experience on this ? It is the 4.0 sohc...


A change of oil may help, but problem likely due to a combination of stretched timing chain and worn anti rattle chain tensioner.
If noise persists, a new chain and checks to tensioner would be worthwhile.

Ticking and rattling


Is it a 3.9? Does it sound like it is coming from the front of the engine(timing chain)? From the factory the 3.9 didn't come with a timing chain tensioner. They are available after market.
