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

After overhauling and changing chain, chain guards and tensioner on Ford rocam 1.3 2006 model, I hear the rattling sound at the front cover when engine reaches 3000rpm


Did you replace everything on the timing, All components? or just the guides and chain? If you didn't replace everything, go back in and replace the pulleys and guide tensioner. Live and learn ....

How to set timing for 2008 expedition


I'm 99% sure that you can't set the timing, as it is controlled electronically. Even if you could somehow change the timing the PCM (computer/power control module) would reset it. Most engine have "variable speed timing" - all electronically controlled and it varies depending on the speed, acceleration, and load. As for the timing chain tension, the timing chain(s) and tensioner(s) are now typically controlled by hydraulic pressure (engine oil pressure) by a devise called a "hydraulic timing chain tensioner", also no way to adjust the tension. If there really is a need to change/adjust timing chain tension (you hear a rattle, knock, maybe a scrapping sound) it is done by replacing the fore mentioned tensioner and/or timing chain guides. Most techs, rightfully so, will replace all timing chains, tensioners and guides as one complete procedure. Changing all parts at once is normally appropriate because of labor time and cost is the same or pretty close to the same as changing just one of the parts, whether its a tensioner or the guides that is the immediate problem. It pretty risky to go to all the work and not change all the parts including the chains (some engines the chains can be reused, but only by a very experienced tech that knows a particular engine very well, but that an exception rather than the rule.) If there is a problem I'd recommended having a very experienced tech/shop do the work. Get a couple of estimates at least and believe it or not a Ford dealership with a reasonable hourly rate might be your best bet and even the cheapest or close to it. The Ford dealer will use Ford parts and the techs know their own vehicles. I have work for all major automotive manufacturers and dozens of Ford dealerships in Ohio, Michigan, a few in PA, WV, as a independent inspector. Ford dealerships are typical very fair to have work on your Ford vehicles. Small town "country" dealerships have a lower hourly rate, sometimes much lower, even lower than the "after-market" shops. (Get to know a shop and stick with them is how most people get and feel most comfortable that you're getting a good deal.)
Sorry I'm not going to proof read this I hope this helps. Nick

P.s. If you have a rattle from the timing components, get it repaired right away! If the chain "comes apart" it will most likely do very serious engine damage. (bend valves, damage pistons, even "throw a rod" (piston rod) and put a hole in the engine block. Other than not having oil/good oil in your engine this type of failure is the next biggest cause of complete engine failure (thousands of dollars)

99 expedition timing chain cover is busted from timing chain and the timing chain bar broke and fell in to the oil pan dont no what caused it\r\n5.4liter


You told us the issue or problem

Now what is the question ?

The chain tensioners got loose ,maybe &
I would guess that the chain guides broke,
because they are plastic & that is what they do
So off came the chain

Now you have a lot of work to do or
someone does
