The 2.3 uses a timing belt with an tension idler adjustment. Replacement is straight forward, just make sure to mark upper and lower cog pulleys before removing the old belt so that you can keep the timing in sync.

The new FORD Duratec 2.3L 16V (Ranger 2001 and above) has not timing belt. It has a internal timing chain:

2003 ford ranger need timingmarks my beltbroke


I've never done one on a Ranger, but most timing gears have alignment marks that you line up before you install the belt. Don't forget to replace the belt tensioner while you're at it.

Do you have a diagram for 2003 saturn timing belt


The 2.2 liter engine uses colored links on the timing chain to align with the marks on the gears. You just have to rotate the engine to where the copper chain link is up on the upper right side of the intake can gear--aligned to the INT diamond on the gear. Then the silver link should be down at about 5 O-Clock on the crankshaft timing mark. The other silver link should then be aligned to the mark on the exhaust cam sprocket. See picture below.

For the 3.0 liter engine, there are marks on the belt that line up with marks on the gears. The book calls out special tools to hold the cam sprockets in alignment while the belt is put on. There is also a special tool to lock the belt onto the crankshaft sprocket. See pictures below.
Please let me know if you have questions.

I just replaced the front cover of a 2003 Ford, Ranger, 2.3


there are no timing specs for that vehicle, the vehicle pcm does all of that. always mark your gears and chains when you take them off. if you just replaced the cover and thats it, there should be no reason why you would have to set the timing-

Timing belt


Absolutely NOT TRUE this vehicle has a timing chain, NOT a timing belt. It has a serpentine belt. Thanks for using FIX YA
