The easiest way is to look at the 8th digit of your vin number. If it is E its a 4.0 SOHC....X its a 4.0 OHV

Timing belt replacement interval


This vehicle shouldn't have a timing belt. Are you wanting to know about the timing chain? What engine size is it? It should be a 4.0 v6 but do you know if it is a OHV engine or a SOHC engine?

How can I tell if I have the SOHC or pushrod 4.0litre engine in my 2000 Ford Explorer Sport?


The vin number is the easiest way to tell for sure, if you can give me the vin i can help you with that, also typically the sohc has a engine cover that says sohc. Please rate this answer as that is my only compensation. Thankyou

The starter will spin the engine but the engine will not fire. this is happening to a 2001 ford explorer sport trac. the spark plugs are getting fire and when i tried to use starter fluid nothing happened


I hope you didnt spray starting fluid through the mass air meter. If you did, this will cause a very expensive repair. There is a "Hot" wire in there that will be damaged. Please tell me what engine you have, either a 4.0L SOHC or a 4.0 OHV. The issues could be different, depending on the engine. Both need fuel, spark, and compression to fire with the fuel, and ignition timing and the fuel timing is critical.
