At how many mi do i change cam chain


Les, The chain in the 2.3 is to last as long as the engine, normally if some thing was to happen, chain guides would wear first and you would likely here a rattling noise that would alert you to have things checked. This engine is known as an interference engine, meaning if chain did slip/break, it could cause real damage to engine valve train and pistons. If it would give you piece of mind and you have over 200,000 on it, have i changed. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Timing chain tensioner


If this is a 4cyl., check the drive belt tensioner first, there is a TSB for a tensioner rattle that is a common failure . To test , remove the drive belt and start the engine and see if the noise is gone,

I have a 91 22re 4wd 5spd when it first starts it makes a loud clacking noise that goes away after a few seconds what is that noise my rocker arm shafts and rocker arms are in good condidion


The 22re engine was infamous for having timing chain problems where the timing chain guide and tensioner would rub on the back of the waterpump. Check your timing chain to make sure all components are operating correctly and check the back side of the water pump. If it succeeds in tearing up that water pump cover you will coolant rush into engine and water lock the motor. More damage than checking and or replacing the timing chain and components.

There is a noise coming from the front engine where the ventilator is. It sounds like a diesel car, and the noise increase when the RPM increses.My Isuzu Ascender 2004 has only 60000 mi. I'm wondering if...


I recently purchased a 2004 Ascender with the 4.2l in-line six cylinder motor, and under the 60 day warranty, the fan clutch and water pump had to be replaced. The mechanic told me that the fan clutch wears out causing an out-of-balance condition which puts extra strain on the water pump, which was leaking. Another issue may be that the timing chain needs to be looked at, because the tension wheel/gear for the chain wears out, making the timing chain sloppy. Then the chain flops around inside the housing, making a similar noise to the one you describe. Have your mechanic/technician check it out.

When should i change the timing belt or chain on my 1996 5 litre Ford Explorer? It has 194000 km on it.


The 5.0 has a timing chain. A chain will usually last the life of a motor if the motor is well taken care of. The only time I ever replace a chain is if it is making noise or I have a timing cover off to repair a leak and the vehicle has higher miles. Otherwise you rarely see failed timing chains.
