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.

When should i change the timing belt or chain on my 1996 5 litre Ford Explorer? It has 194000 km on it.


The 5.0 has a timing chain. A chain will usually last the life of a motor if the motor is well taken care of. The only time I ever replace a chain is if it is making noise or I have a timing cover off to repair a leak and the vehicle has higher miles. Otherwise you rarely see failed timing chains.

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.

2000 ford explorer sport 4x4 timing timing chain rattling. have heard that changing to a synthetic 5w30 oil with wix filter will quieten it down. any feedback or experience on this ? It is the 4.0 sohc...


A change of oil may help, but problem likely due to a combination of stretched timing chain and worn anti rattle chain tensioner.
If noise persists, a new chain and checks to tensioner would be worthwhile.

Timing chain alignment 1999 ford explorer sohc


not true. SOHC 4.0 tensioner and rails fall apart, allowing the chain to slap and do damage, or even break. book it. in order to replace rioght side cam chain and tensioner, the engine MUST BE REMOVED! if it has balance shaft chain in oil pan, there are a total of four chains in this engine.

Timing belt on 1999 ford explorer


No engine available in any Ford Explorer uses a timing belt. The cams in all avaiable engines are driven by a chain, this chain has no specific time or mileage recommendation for replacement and in most cases lasts the life of the truck.
