Question about Ford Expedition

Open Question

My mechanic is telling me my timing chains have possibly slipped. He wants to replace them. The timing chain kit is about $500 but how much approximately should the labor cost? How many hours of labor should I expect to pay for?

SOURCE: broken timing chain corsa

Not good. I would expect the garage to foot this expence as Im sure your initial bill was far from a cheep one? If a customer of mine had suffered a similar issue, I would certainly work very closely with them to rectify the problem. There is of course a slim chance a catastrophic component failure has genuinely occured, which may be completely unrelated. However it is most unlikely this time, as when your timing chain failed the valve to piston collision/impact would have caused serious potential damage to the crankshaft and big end bearings. This symptom is not overly common in most engines where timing chain/belt failure occurs. However, all engines are different and may experience different levels of damage. A replacement engine does now seem the cheepest way forward in your situation. Perhaps the garage should source one and you might pay for the fitting only? Good luck

SOURCE: 2001 Holden (Isuzu) Rodeo head gasket kit & timing belt

As far as the price goes, the head gasket set at AutoZone is almost $300 which means you would obviously pay more than that at your mechnic shop.  I will check on the central pivot axis and get back with you.  Did he tell you a code number that is popping the Check Engine light off?

SOURCE: Does my 98 Rodeo have a timing belt or a timing chain?

Hi:
You are definitely due for a timing belt if you havent done so.
Shop prices vary a lot, so I hope you have someone you trust....non the less, your 98 rodeo has a timing belt...and it is good money spent, to also replace your waterpump and tensioner too.
All of the parts can be purchased for about $125, and often the entire job can be taken care of in a shop for about $200 labor, but I would shop around a bit...

Timing chain noise


The chain, gear teeth or possibly a tensioner could be going bad (worn teeth or tensioner, stretched chain).. you need to replace whatever before the timing slips and valves are bent/broken.

At how many mi do i change cam chain


Les, The chain in the 2.3 is to last as long as the engine, normally if some thing was to happen, chain guides would wear first and you would likely here a rattling noise that would alert you to have things checked. This engine is known as an interference engine, meaning if chain did slip/break, it could cause real damage to engine valve train and pistons. If it would give you piece of mind and you have over 200,000 on it, have i changed. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Timing chain noise in my BMW


replace the timing chain tensioner, about 60 euro and easy to do yourself,
however, the timing chain guides may be broke or damaged which is a big operation. They are made from plastic and can become brittle and break.
The kit for them are relatively cheap off eBay (120 euro) but they are very labour intensive, no change out of 500 euro id say,
lets hope its the tensioner

Cx 7 mazda cel codes P0011 and P0016


Causes may include:
  • Timing chain stretched, or timing belt skipped a tooth due to wear
  • Misalignment of timing belt/chain
  • Tone ring on crankshaft slipped/broken
  • Tone ring on camshaft slipped/broken
  • Bad crank sensor
  • Bad cam sensor
  • Damaged wiring to crank/cam sensor
  • Timing belt/chain tensioner damaged
  1. First, visually inspect the cam and crank sensors and their harnesses for damage. If you notice broken/frayed wires, repair and recheck.
  2. If you have access to a scope, check the cam and crank patterns. If a pattern is missing, suspect a bad sensor or a slipping tone ring. Remove the cam gear and the crankshaft harmonic balancer and inspect the tone rings for proper alignment and make sure they're not loose or damaged or that they haven't sheared the key that aligns them. If they are properly installed, replace the sensor.
  3. If the signal appears normal, then check the timing chain/belt for proper alignment. If it's misaligned, check for a damaged tensioner that may have allowed the chain/belt to slip a tooth or several teeth. Also check that the belt/chain isn't stretched. Repair and recheck

How to replace a nissan almera timing chain


Hi all it is with out doubt a major blunder by Nissan to fit a Renault timing chain mechanism to the almera and other Nissan engines. I have dealt with many a customer with an engine light on hoping that a crankshaft sensor would sort the issue out, Nissan will charge in excess of 750 euro to replace the timing kit and having it replaced you might hope to get 120k from the car well I have come across engines only covering 30k buyer chain failure, beware if you are doing a chain replacement your self use (oe) parts often spurious parts don't have the paint marks on the chain to aid setting the timing ,

2005 Nissan Altima needs timing chain repair/replace what will it cost me appox.?


You need to know if your car engines is a interference motor first !! An interference motor is when the timing belt breaks while you are driving and the valves stop but the piston heads keep going up into the valves and destroys them and the heads that hit them. Usually for a mechanic will charge you about 50 or 60 dollars an hour so he has the book that tells him how long it will take to replace the timing belt so go call several of them they will say the same thing trust me I have called many of them in the past myself.

The mechanic told me there is a heavy leakage on my corolla's chain tensioner. Do I need to replace it right away? how much will it cost me?


if this is in fact the problem then yes you need to change this as soon as possible. The chain tensioner tensions the timing chain inside your engine. If there is too much slack in the chain, it can slip a couple teeth in its gears or possibly even fall off or break! If this occurs it will be time for a new engine. It will be pretty expensive, around 1000 bucks or more. But it could cost 2 or 3 times as much if left alone. My best advise would be to find a friend or family member who can do this for cheaper. It is a pretty intense job so the average person may not want to try this. I hope this helps! Vote yes if so. Thanks!
