2001 Ford Sport Trac - Front & Rear Timing Chains

Hi I have a 2001 Ford Sport Trac. I am told to change the timing chain you must change both front and back and it can be a 12+ Hour Job. I am trying to find a motor diagram and find out why it has front and back timing chains? I am not a newer vehicle mechanic but it seems extremely odd to have both front and rear timing chains? Can someone help me out with a answer. Maybe a link to a motor diagram? Thanks

The rear timing chain (or "cassette" as it's called in Ford lingo) is the chain that drives bank #1 (passenger side) cam. The front timing chain drives bank #2 (driver side) cam. There is a also a primary "jackshaft" chain that is driven by the crankshaft in order to enable both banks to be driven through a common shaft. The reason for this peculiar layout is because this engine is a "derivative" of the 4.0L OHV V6 engine it replaces. Ford simply installed a dummy shaft in place of where the camshaft used to reside on the original OHV engines. But above all else, the job you describe SHOULD NOT be carried out by anyone unfamiliar with this particular engine. There are NO timing marks on any of the drive sprockets, nor are they key to their corresponding shafts. To time this particular engine requires use of FIVE dedicated Ford/Rotunda tools that hold all relevant parts in proper position. Failing to carry this procedure out correctly, will result in the bending of ALL valves with 100% certainty!!! Therefore, it is best left to a Ford dealer technician to carry out. If you would like more information regarding diagrams, TSBs, and procedures with detailed illustrations, please e-mail me directly with your FULL Yahoo e-mail address so I can attach PDF files. Hope this helps.

Where are timing chain tensioners? I need to change them.Does left one have an electrical connection? Thanks


The timing chain tensioners are located with the timing chain inside the timing cover and usually are not changed unless the timing chain assembly is replaced. Why would you change them?

I have a Ford Explorer 1999. I have been told timing chain gards need replacing which are plastic. The motor need to come out to do front and back at $7,000 AUS.


Yes Ford Explorers are like that, The timing chain tensioners are plastic and need replaced with the chains. The engine has to be removed, please replace all chains and related parts at this time. This will save you money and downtime later. There are multiple chains on these Fords.

Hello if your sport trac has a 4.0 v6 it has two timing chains. One on front drivers side head and one rear passenger side. The timing chain on the rear is costly to repair, which is usually the one to go out.

have you replaced front brakes 3+ times? normal wear is 3 front to 1 rear. plus ratio of braking for MOST veh's is 70% front vs 30% rear. rears could simply have worn out!

01 ford explorer sport trac rear timing chain diagram


There is a detailed explanation in the ford workshop manual for this, and some special tools are required to get the timing right. I would not recommend doing this without the special tools. Contact your local ford dealer, they might loan you the tools and the manual for a fee.
Hope this helps, Mark

01 explorer timing chains


I may be comming off totally half cocked but on my Ford Explorer Sport I don't believe there are any "Timing Chains" on this vehicle. I just have a Serpentine belt that ties / runs everything together. My "older" vehicles had timing chains to where I pulled the grille, radiator out to gain access to the front of the block.
Funny thing is.......I had more of a headache replacing the spak plugs on my Explorer Sport than the Serpentine Belt. (Go Figure)
