Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
If thie engine in your explorer is the v6 4.0 I found this information online - You are not supposed to need to replace the timing chain(s) on a 4.0L SOHC V6. There are actually a total of FOUR, on this particular engine. This is a job that I would NOT recommend anyone even thinking of attempting to replace, if it's by anyone other than a FORD DEALER TECHNICIAN FAMILIAR WITH DIASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY OF 4.0L SOHC V6 ENGINES. The reason for this is because, this particular engine is an interference engine BIG TIME!!! There are NO timing marks on this particular engine. They require FIVE dedicated Ford/Rotunda tools to service.
