SOURCE: Need timing marks for 2002 ford explorer 4.0




The Info I Have Is Extensive and Has Illistrations, I Need to Emali it to You As it is Very Large, This Is A Small Example Im @rejakwilson@aol.com

Special Tool(s)

  1. With the vehicle in neutral, position it on a hoist.
  2. Remove the intake manifold.
  3. Remove the fuel supply manifold.
  4. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  5. Remove the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the roller followers.
  7. NOTE: You must retime the LH and RH camshafts when either camshaft is disturbed. Turn the crankshaft clockwise to position the number one cylinder at top dead center (TDC).
  8. NOTE: Late build pulley shown, early build pulley similar. NOTE: The special tool must be installed on the damper and should contact the engine block to position the engine at TDC.

SOURCE: I need change the automatic transmission fluid Explorer 2002 E.B.

There IS a transmission drain plug on the 2002 Ford Explorer! It is, however, difficult to get the fluid back in as there IS NO dipstick (tube) to refill it. I installed the pan bolts far enough to hold the pan up (level) and then stuck a hose (attached to a funnel at top of engine compartment) through the opening between the pan and the bottom of the transmission. I was able to put five quarts in that way - no more as it will overflow (trust me). You can check other sites on how to check to see if that's enough and how to add more as needed. That's not simple either. Great idea Ford Motor Company (sarcasm) !!!!!!

SOURCE: need timing marks for 2002 ford explorer 4.6l

If you can not find a Haynes or Chilton Manual for sale in your local parts store, you should check your local library, they may have the manual or repair (shop) manual that you can copy pages from for your use. This way you will have pictures.

SOURCE: how hard is it to replace timing chain on ford

There are 2 different 4.0L type engines on Ford Explorers if it is the VIN letter E (8th number reading left to right) then yes it has a timing chain on the back and there are 3 timing chains on the front. You will need special tools to hold the timing in place whille you change the chains. You can buy them from several different tool manufacturers. I bought mine from Snap-on but it was several hundred dollars and came with many different adapters for several different engines. But be prepared to spend a little money they aren't cheap even the small sets. Depending upon how much you'll use them you may want to see how much it would cost to have it done or try to find someone to loan you some. If you do then it's just a matter of following the procedure in the maintenance manual. As far as how hard is it? It isn't rocket science but I would make sure you read over the procedure in a repair manual, see if you can get the special tools you will need and depending upon your mechanical aptitude determine if it's something you want to tackle yourself. Good luck.

How to change timing chain tensioner


Its a bit of work. Radiator, belts, pulleys have to come off. Alternator, ps pump, too. Remove front cover, install new chain and tensioner, and all back the way it came off. Looking at 6 hours in the driveway or 4 hours labor at the shop, maybe more.

How to change a timing chain tensioner on 2002 ford explorer


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.

If it sounds bad. I wouldn't recommend driving it. If you have a bad guide. It would be best to replace all timing components. You don't want to get stranded on the road.
