Getting to timing chain without tearing down engine 2000 dodge intrepid


I assume you're talking about the 2.7L V6. As you're probably aware (having had it apart before), the timing is properly set by aligning the colored links on the primary timing chain with the marks on the crank sprocket and cam sprockets. The only way I know of to see all these at the same time is to remove the timing cover, and you have to tear the engine apart to remove the timing cover.

I have a clinking sound (metal on metal) coming from the motor compartment while idling


Assuming the oil level is correct, you don't say which engine you have. If you have the SOHC 4.0L V6 (VIN E), the timing chain guides may be broken and the chain has a great deal of slack. It is a common problem with timing chain guide cartridges on those SOHC V6s. Unfortunately, without you stating whether it is the 4.0L V6 or 4.6L V8, it is hard to give you a better answer.

Are the V6 engines Free spinning?


Hi Lukegerny,
No,the V6 engine is not free spinning. If the timing chain breaks, leaving the valves open as the piston moves through its travel,there will be damage to the valves.How much damage will depend on speed of engine and length of time it ran. You can perform a leak down test to check the condition of the pistons and valves. It will tell you if the valves are not sealing,without having to take it apart. Thanks,Chuck.

Timing chain or belt?


The 2002-2006 Camry received the next generation 2.4L 4-cylinder engine (model 2AZ-FE), which combines decent power with excellent fuel economy. This engine does not have a timing belt, it has a chain that does not need to be replaced.
The second choice is very smooth and powerful 3.0-liter 24-valve all-aluminum V6 engine.
Starting from 2004, the 3.3-liter V6 DOHC VVT-i engine is available on SE V6 model.
Both, the 3.0L and 3.3L V6 engines have a timing belt that must be replaced at certain interval

2001 Ford Ranger V6 timing chain


Hello;
The Ford motors are pretty good. I had 280K on a 2.9 V-8 that only needed the oil changed every 3K. Unless you have fluctuatuation in the timing then you should be ok.
These engines use a chain rather than a belt and have excellent life.
Thanks;

Timing belt on Accord 2004 v6 models


2003 and up Honda Accord with 4 cylinder engines do indeed have a chain and the V6 has a belt which must be replaced at 110,000 miles. Why? Ask Honda, they designed the engines.
