Is it possible that the error codes I am getting are caused because I messed up the timing when the camshaft moved during timing chain installation?


cam shaft moving... i wouldn't think the shaft moving would do it, nothing was running, but your timing is more then likely off if you didnt time it to factory settings if you have ..then
the codes bank 1 and 2 could be pointing to your O2 sensors EGR is very much aprt of the O2's and it's function.

2001 Ford F-150 4.6 liter romeo. Could the error codes I am geting be caused by incorrect timing?


It sure sounds like you are off one tooth on the timing chain. The fact you are getting different codes for each bank points that direction too. You should be able to check all your marks again. That's where I'd start.

Replacing automotive timing chain kit


no purchase a mechanical manual from your auto parts dealer. they are now specialized to almost every car. if its a side mount engine you will more than likely have to take the tire offf and the wheel well. to give yourself enough rum to play in and see the timing marks on the crank gear and cam gear for proper alignment for the new install. F.Y.I. It helps if you get them into the proper alignment before you remove the old one by placing the crank shaft bolt back in after you remove the cover and turning it with a socket wrench until they are close to the picture in the book. there may also be a slack adjuster behind the cover. Be careful and do it by the book and make sure your replace any and all gaskets you remove. NEVER reuse a gasket. As a matter of fact when you purchase the timing gear and chain set. Purchase what they call a Timing chain change out gasket set. It will have every gasket you'll need to replace. Good Luck.

I have a 1993 jeep grand cherokee 4.0l and need a diagram for the timing chain links. i was told that there is to be 15 links between marks and then told 20. need help please.thanks


I don't have a diagram I can post, but once you install the new chain and have the two timing marks pointing toward each other, then turn the Crankshaft around twice and see if the two timing marks still line up. Remember, the crankshaft turns two times for every one time the camshaft turns.

I understand the 15 vs. 20, but that's neither here nor there. What the Factory Service Manual states is there should be 15 "pins" between the timing marks when the timing chain is set up properly. (?) The links you speak of aren't what you're counting...it's the pins in the chain. In other words, for each link of the Timing Chain, there are two pins, holding it in place...or a total of 48 pins on the length of the entire timing chain. Personally? When I install a timing chain, I rotate the crankshaft around twice to see if the timing marks still match up, and before putting everything back together, I start the Engine for a brief few seconds thereby knowing after reassembling everything, the Engine WILL Start.

If you're still concerned about the 15 pin thing, stop by your local Dealership and look in the Factory manual in Section 9 (Engine), Page 36 for a picture of the 15 so-called "chain-pins."

Hope this helps,

I have a Ford Explorer 1999. I have been told timing chain gards need replacing which are plastic. The motor need to come out to do front and back at $7,000 AUS.


Yes Ford Explorers are like that, The timing chain tensioners are plastic and need replaced with the chains. The engine has to be removed, please replace all chains and related parts at this time. This will save you money and downtime later. There are multiple chains on these Fords.

Maintenance questions in ref to Ford Sport Track, 2004


You have a 4.0L SOHC engine which has 4 timing chains. No belts. The only thing you have to worry about is the chain tensioners breaking. You'll get engine noise at idle from underneath or it'll sound like pinging at 2200 to 2700 rpms.

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.
