Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
If it is the SOHC engine, then your timing chain guides are ready to fail. Even though it is a 98, you may still get them replaced under the recall by Ford. Otherwise, they need to be replaced before they fail completely, as it will go from a $600 job to a $2500 job. The valvetrain will be destroyed if they fail.
This is a common problem with the 4.0 SOHC engine.
