Typically the timing cover holds the front seal for the oil pan. You may not have to remove all of the bolts on the pan but it does need to drop down enough to put the timing cover on and usually that means the gasket on the pan will also have to be replaced as it gets torn up when you pry the oil pan loose. You will also need a harmonic balancer puller to get that off.

Can a bad timing chain cover gasket cause a coolant leak in my 2003 ford taurus


Yes the timing cover gasket can leak coolant. The coolant passes the waterpump and is pump into the engine block thru the timing cover. to see the actual leak jack up passenger side of car support with jack stand take off wheel and the splash guard now you can see the crank shaft pulley look up at waterpump on both side it goes back to engine block with a mirror you can see it leak.

This guy said he changed my waterpump but can't get the cover off to change the timing chain. I thought you had to have the cover off in order to do this...


Hi,
No, the cover of the timing chain is different from water pump. Belt is used to operate the water pump.
Hope that clears everything!

1983 Ford F-250 w/351 cid engine has jumped time. I will start, but backfires severely. What is estimated cost of repair?


Timing chain set $25, timing cover gasket set $15, 5qts of oil and filter $20, one gallon of antifreeze $8 take about three hours to do, about $80 an hour for labor if you take it to someone. Think about replacing waterpump too, be another $25.

Trying to replace the water pump, having trouble getting the pulley off to remove the timing chain cover, any solutions?


If it is the 2.2l then you should have to remove the timing chain cover to get waterpump off. There are, I believe, 5 bolts that hold the water pump on. It is a cramped area but accessible.

2000 GMC Sonoma 4.3l V6 timing chain replacement


Sounds to me someone wants to make a couple of bucks. Does the truck still run? The timming chain is going to have play in it, even with only a few miles on it THATS JUST THE NATURE OF THE BEAST, the chanses of the timming chain going out is remote, I've owned a few 4.3's with well over 100.000 mi. and never had to chg. a timming chain, not to say it can't happend just saying its very remote.

Hi Briseno,

Solenoid pack leaking,
Cooler Lines to Radiator leaking,
Timing cover leaking,
They suggest changing the water pump at the same time as the lower rad hose, timing chain, and valve cover gaskets. This is because it either looks like the water pump will die soon, preventative measures, or the shop is trying to rip you off for an hours labor.

Either way, I would suggest taking it to a mechanic, unless you're a bit of a handy man.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.

Should the car start without alternator,waterpump and belts.


when you replaced the cam gear did you make sure that the timing marks where in line? If so than yes you should be able to start the engine providing all of the components are installed (ie.) the timing cover,new front seal(recomend you do this),crankshaft balancer,intake manifold,valve covers, etc. you should not need to install the alternater,power steering pump,waterpump and other accessaries at this point.

Removal of waterpump


Drain cooling system. Remove radiator upper cross-member. Remove radiator fan. Remove accessory drive belts.
NOTE: The water pump is driven by the primary timing chain.
Remove the timing chain and all chain guides then remove water pump and gasket. Reverse to install. Since this job requires about 4 special tools and the removal of the timing chain and a high level of technical skill I would not attempt it, if you get the timing chain on wrong you could cause severe damage to the engine.
