Chain dragging / Change jingling sound from Driver Front Side

I've got a chain dragging or change jingling sound in the driver side front area of my car. It's an old ford station wagon and I pulled the wheel off today to have a look. Nothing looks out of place, the only thing I noticed was the bar that connects shock housing to the sway bar has bad bearings. I could twist it by hand no problem and grease was exposed. It doesn't seem to me that this is what's making the noise however because the sound doesnt really change when going around corners, or hitting bumps. Any ideas what this could be? My first thought was broken wheel bearing jingling around metal as the wheel turns, but I'm not sure.

Does this sound occur while th engine is running and the car is sitting still? Or only while driving? If so look at the exhaust pipe under the engine, there is a section that looks like flexible pipe, at either end there is a thin washer-like connector or fastner is it dangeling from the pipe, if so that is probably your noise. I had the same jingling noisre in mine and that was the problem, I just cut it off and the noise never came back. Hope this helps, let me know.

Sounds like change jingling front right axle area


Previous owner jumped what? You have a lot of words there but what I see is your front end rattles when going over bumps and you can move the differential but don't know whats allowing movement. Have someone make it move and look to see what's moving!!! Also have someone bounce it and look for anything loose.

Jingling noise? 1990 chevy k2500


If you had front disc brakes changed recently, then more than liklely someone forgot to put your anti rattle clip in with the installation. if you can stand the rattle it's not life threatning. if no brake job recently, then open the hood and look for something loose that would be rattling.

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.
