Did this video help you?

trickydicky7383: Ideally you should have left the new tentioners to soak in warm oil for 12 hours before you installed them. Still a great installation video.

wbrudi28: Did you use ford OEM tensioners? I'm looking to do the same to mine, both left and right

drake7331: Should I use some kind of a gasket or something on the new tensioner? I took out the OEM tensioner and there was a metal gasket at the base of the tensioner. I added a rubber seal on the base of a new one and installed it in my car. The death rattle is pretty much gone, however, at cold start there's a really weird squeaky noise coming from the new tensioner. Why is that? When I used no seal/gasket, it leaked oil badly, so I don't know what to do now...

JESUS ROBERTO RAMIREZ HUERTA: hi guys I have a ford explorer mod 99 eddie Bahuer 4x4 and sometimes sounds like the chain of time but the strange thing is that sometimes takes away, I think that if some tensor'm not sure anyone can tell me your opinion about this. excellent video

Travis Hogueison: Does a 98 have the tensioners in the same spot?

David Bonigut: I had been hearing the rattle for a month or so and was fearing i had to replace the complete cam chain, after running across your video i hit the auto parts store , picked up 2 ~10"-1/2"extensions a 27mm socket and a new tensioner  . After install it seems to be much quieter :) and thanx for the tip to check for leaks when first started as i didnt have mine quite tight enough and was dripping , just a tweek more fixed it up . Thanx so much for taking the time to make this video :)

Hoodgrower: Does the 03 explorer have theses tenstion bolts? My truck was having the sounds but we point thicker oil in her an now shes ok (sometimes)

Wesley Mertz: What is the torque spec for the passenger side tensioner In this video?

Perla Segura: where would the timing tensioner be on a 99 same place?

Tracie Nicolosi: My 2003 explorer runs great...motor has pick up n go...its just loud as hell...was told my timing chains needed changed n that it would cost more than the trucks worth...mind u I owe 3400 still on this truck and I'm having a hard time believing that throwing my current motor in the trash and buying a new one is the only affordable option. HELP ME PLZ

Andy Reyes: Are there tensioners on both sides or just on the side shown in the video? The reason I say is because I looked for the tensioners and I got results for a left and a right side.

duke rabbit: mechanic says i have to replace the entire gears and the thermostat housing he says i need the whole timing chain kit charging 500 for labor

SuperIncredible90: I have a problem with my 2002 Ford Explorer V8 4.6L. I first heard rattling and within a week, I was on the freeway, and it shut off. The lights were on, everything worked fine but the engine did not turn over. Every time I try to turn it on completely, it sounds really bad. Like a clacking noise. If you can, go on my page. I posted a video of the noise it makes. Please check it out, you might be my savior! Thanks! 

Caleb Dowty: I cannot seem to find these parts anywhere...I have looked into rock auto and all they have are expensive kits....I am in Kansas and my 99' Ford Explorer spirt has had this sound for about a year and a half and it's just getting on my nerves so time to fix it...anyone find the tensioner with the part numbers listed?

Juan Ayala: It since like all Ford explorers have this problem, my friend have a 98  and drove it like that  for 2 years doing the really load noise when it was cold star  and finally came to the END.  time change broke!!

Joseph Krone: Everyone's telling me I need to pull the entire motor out of the car?..

dick gazinya: do you have to remove the oil to do this?

Plau's Pone Cornur: Where'd you source the parts? Rockauto doesn't seem to have them and i dont want to go to the dealer for them. also whats the P/N. i need these for my 1997 4.0 sohc
