It's a timing chain... They will probably last for as long as the vehicle does (175k-200k miles depending on upkeep and willingness to keep the dog alive). That said, if there's a reason to have the timing chain cover off an engine over 100k... I'm the type that would go ahead and replace the timing chain while it's in front of you if you plan on having the vehicle for more than a year or so.

If you have the engine pulled for any reason over 100k, then that's another time that I'd be replacing the timing chain and the oil pump while I'm at it...

    I have a 2000 Ford Explorer a "good mechanic" (I don't know if any person is able to hear when a timing chain requires replacement). Today he said that he could hear the need to replace the 4 different chains, I have done some research and found that that process is VERY EXPENSIVE. What can you suggest? I am about to take a 4,000 mile trip and do not want to be stranded in no man's land, having to need replacement of all 4 chains. I would appreciate you kind attention to my quest for direction.

    Thank you for your recommendation, sincerely George. My email is kikimayaa@aol.com my cel phone is 202 701 5847

Pull your Serpentine belt, remove the Cam Belt Cover, (it may be advantageous to remove front wheel in the Cam Belt side) Remove the timing belt and time the engine to specifications, make sure you are on #1TDC, remove the tensioner and replace. if there is and Idler pulley replace that as well. You can use Spray Carb Cleaner to clean the pulleys before replacing the belt. Note, you may have to also remove the Harmonic Balancer and pulleys from the crankshaft.

What mileage do you replace serpentine or time chain belts.


Your replace the serpentine belt when it is worn, cracked, or appears to need replacing. It should easily last 100,000 miles. The 2002 Taurus has a timing chain and not a belt which will last the life of the engine.

What is Ford's recomendation (mileage) for replacing the serpentine belt on a 1998 Ford Explorer?


Theres no mileage to change just to check it, the way to check the belt is to look at the inside of the belt and you will see grooves in which the belt rides, if you see cracks in the belt then its time tom replace. the belt should be looked at every oil change it thats no time to check. hope this is helpful.

Does a 2001 ford explorer sport have a timing belt or timing chain?


being that you most likely have a 4.0l s.o.h.c. engine you have a timing chain which only needs inspection around 100,000 miles for excessive wear on chain guides and leaking cam seals. this setup tends to last far beyond that mileage without any maintenence. if this was helpful please leave positive rating.

What is the schedule replacement mileage for a 2003 Ford Escape Timing Chain


If your car has a chain there is not a scheduled replacement. A timing chain should last as long as the engine. No need to replace the chain. Now things can happen such as a guide wearing out or a drive / driven gear wears out, then a chain should be replaced. You do not need to replace a chain under normal usage. *** Now the 2000 - 2004 Escape with a 2.0L (4 cylinder) does have a BELT and yes, belts should be changed (Ford recommends) every 60,000 miles or 7 years which ever comes first.

Timing belt on 1999 ford explorer


No engine available in any Ford Explorer uses a timing belt. The cams in all avaiable engines are driven by a chain, this chain has no specific time or mileage recommendation for replacement and in most cases lasts the life of the truck.
