What could be the possible thing that can make the engine to produce noise after doing the valve timing,i used the car for 2days now its making noise from the chain?


the chain has tension adjusters you might have missed this to release and reset them also did you have the crankshaft and camshafts held in place while installing also the chain guide/s could be worn most have plastic guides on the guide rails and contact could have broken this plastic resulting in chain to metal contact I don't know what kind of car your talking about but if its a dual overhead cam with 2 chains this could be it you must you special cam and crankshaft positioning tools to make sure that its in the exact position also your crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensor could be unplugged or not working and can not tell the computer where it should be resulting in a loose chain LATER MAN!

I need a picture of the timing marks for Jeep 4.0


Timing the Cam to the Crank

There are several ways to time the cam to the crank. Be sure to check the manual before you install the timing chain or belt.

  • Some timing sprockets are properly timed when the marks face each other.
  • On others, there must be a certain number of chain links between the marks.
  • Sometimes chains have colored links that must be aligned with the marks on the sprockets.
  • Some overhead cams have a mark on the cam gear that lines up with a mark on the cylinder head when the timing mark on the damper is at the TDC mark.
Align the timing marks for the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets before removing the timing belt or chain.

If the old parts are available, carefully compare the new gears or sprockets with the old ones. Check the keyway and timing marks just in case there might have been an error made in manufacturing. Sprockets are sometimes stamped backward. Its much better to find the problem during assembly, rather than waiting until problems show up after reassembly and reinstallation.

Maintaining Valve Timing

During a valve job, it is essential to keep the timing chain or belt in place to maintain correct valve timing. Position the number one cylinder at TDC. Some overhead cam engines use a single long chain for a cam drive. The chain can be wedged against its guides with a tapered block of wood.
the chain tensioner on some ohc engines must be wedged to keep the chain in position during cylinder head removal. courtesy of nissan motors.

Some engines have a lower and upper chain. These engines do not require special attention to wedging the chain. Be sure to look for hidden head bolts and check the repair manual before removing the OHC head.

I have a blown head gasket. i need to know if i need to remove the air intake to take off the head to get to the gasket. thank you


yes, air intake, intake manifold and exhaust manifold. This is not a job for a novice. If engine has overhead cam, then cam chain/belt must also be removed. Rocker arms must be loosened to allow valves to close. Note position of timing gear in case cam rotates while chain/belt is off. Camshaft must be properly timed to the crankshaft on reassembly.
Head should be checked for warping and cracks. Follow torque instructions carefully when reinstalling the head.

I need a diagram of timing chain replacement Thank You


During most engine rebuilds, a completely new timing assembly should be installed. If wear exists on any component, replacement of the entire assembly is necessary. Wear in the chain, gears, or sprockets means a timing lag, which results in poor engine performance.
The timing chain or belt is generally installed with the gears in their correct positions. Before installing a new chain, soak it in oil.
OHC (Overhead Cam) Engines
Some OHC engines use a chain drive; others use a belt drive. Removing the cover on some OHC engines that have timing chains is more difficult, because the cover often fits between the oil pan and the cylinder head. There are special procedures for replacing cam timing components in these engines.
Before a chain repair job, perform a leakage test on non-freewheeling engines to check for bent valves, so that an accurate repair estimate can be made.
OHV (Overhead Valve) Pushrod Engines
On many OHV pushrod engines, the crankshaft sprocket is installed on the crankshaft nose and the crankshaft is rotated to position piston #1 at TDC. At this point, a mark stamped onto the crankshaft sprocket is pointing directly upward (toward the camshaft).
The camshaft sprocket is then temporarily bolted to the cam and used to rotate the cam until a mark stamped on the cam sprocket is pointing directly downward (toward the crankshaft). The sprocket is then removed from the cam (without allowing the cam to rotate).
The timing chain is looped over the cam gear, the mark on the cam gear is positioned directly downward, and the chain is looped around the crankshaft sprocket. When the cam sprocket is attached to the cam, the timing marks on the crank and cam sprockets should be pointing toward one another. NOTE THIS IS FOR 2WD 4.0

I have a 1998ford explorer that has lost 95%of its power startsonly if you grind the stater long enough and has a noise in top of the left bank could it be a chain or cam it will go about 20 miles an hour...


If this engine is the single overhead cam style you may have chain and cam problems. If you remove cam covers you will see right away if the chain and or chain guides are faulty.

Remove the cam cover, remove the spark plugs, turn the engine to number 1 TDC, put a pencil in spark plug hole number one and twist the crank back and forth and make doubly sure you are at TDC. Now loosen the four bolts at the front of each cam sprocket, check TDC again with the pencil and rocking the crank, now take the pencil and lay it across the flats at the back of each cam. Twist the cams very carefully so that the pencil sits flat on each cam square. Snug up the sprocket bolts and use the pencil to check TDC again! Now check the cams again. Repeat the procedure until you have the cams flat and the engine at TDC.
